    It is all sold out!

    May be they should increase the price tag?

    Interesting. I gave up on f2.8 lenses in this FL a while ago, didn't think the extra stop justified the weight penalty. Maybe they will come up with an f4 version too, in the GM range.

    BTW, does anybody else have a problem with clicking on any posted link on GetDPI? I keep getting a 'security Alert' warning no matter which computer I use - at home or work. Even copying and pasting the link gives me the same error - stating there is 'malware' on the GetDPI site which might compromise my computer.
    Too much to list, let's just say I have a bad case of GAS.........

    Yes, it is a pervasive problem since now four weeks there is more about it in the Site Talk forum http://www.getdpi.com/forum/site-tal...ed-flickr.html

    Re: $3,500.00! FE 70-200 mm F2.8 GM OSS

    Just saw this on sonyalpharumors.com:

    Today, Sony has also released pricing and ship timing for the FE 70-200mm f/2.8 GM OSS G Master lens, 1.4x and 2.0x teleconverters plus their new wireless lighting control system. All products were introduced earlier this year.


    One of the most eagerly anticipated lenses of the year, the Sony FE 70-200mm f/2.8 GM OSS G Master lens takes its place as the flagship telephoto zoom in the Sony lens lineup. Featuring built in Optical Stead Shot (OSS) and a fast f/2.8 maximum aperture across the zoom range, the lens will be an ideal fit for nature, sports, travel, fashion, beauty and wedding photographers. This lens will ship this July for a retail price of $2,600 US and $3,300 CA.


    Designed exclusively to fit the 70-200mm F2.8 G Master lens, the new 1.4x and 2.0x teleconverters (models SEL14TC and SEL20TC) will both be sold for the same retail price of about $550 US and $700 CA, and will ship this July.
    So $2,600 instead of $3,500.

    Thanks Joe. So, $2,600 + $550 + $550 = $3,700 USD for the set.
    With best regards, K-H.

    US $ 2600 seems like a bargain, considering it is a Sony lens!

    Re: $3,500.00! FE 70-200 mm F2.8 GM OSS

    With the equivalent Nikon and Canon lenses selling for around $2,000 USD, this Sony lens price seems more than a bit off the mark. Maybe currency valuations are playing a role. Maybe the success of the GM lenses has suggested to Sony that prices are inelastic. At $2,600 (the price of a mint used a7RII), this one is not for me. The FE 70-200mm f/4 will just have to suffice.

    Joe

    I would like to see some honest independent reviews about the lens, including teleconverters.
    Also of interest to me is whether there are initial or copy variation problems. Hopefully none!
    Infomercials by the usual folks don't seem particularly useful to me.
    With best regards, K-H.

    The new 50 is gorgeous in build, design and while larger than most 50 1.4’s, the quality here is simply gorgeous, almost to Zeiss Otus Levels. This lens is quite a bit smaller than the OTUS though and offers Auto Focus while coming in at $1900 less than the Otus.
    Seems like a balanced "review" to me.


    I did not know that it is a Sony Zeiss lens!

    Now that explains the 1800 Euro price tag!

    Re: $3,500.00! FE 70-200 mm F2.8 GM OSS

    Considering the current price of the A mount 70-200mm: $2600 for a E mount GM make's it far more realistic for those who use lenses of this focal length. I don't use the 2.8 70-200mm I have and I got it for $800 as it is not a lens I personally have much need for. So it still will be a no for me but I can see wedding photogs sucking these up as that type lens is a mainstay for them.
