    Sony 70-200 FE - Performance in Low Light on A7rII

    When I had the A7r I rented this lens for an evening shoot and was disappointed in it's ability to focus in low light compared to my other lenses and in particular the 55. Since I now have the A7rII I am interested in how it performs today on this body. Particularly if anyone had experience on both of the A7R's but any thoughts would be helpful. I know Guy also had this question at one point.

    Jim,
    I have the 70-200 FE F4. I've used it on an A7II to shoot during concerts in low light. Also used it at the church last Saturday with A7RII.

    I like it.

    I think this and about half the others were shot with the 70-200.
    For this shoot I was using two cameras and long zooms;
    A7II and 70-200 along with XT-1 and 50-135.

    I think the EXIF is embedded.

    Saturday I'm going to a local race track to shoot. Then that night I'll be shooting at a concert.
    I plan to use the 70-200 at both.

    One thing I'm interested in seeing is the ability for the AF-C to track a car on the track.

    Then at the concert contrasty light focusing.

    David, Thanks again. It appears the 70-200 focus is much improved on the new bodies.
