Nice optical performance. And the photos are very nice as well. Keep updating the forum as you discover how good this is.
This lens was on my buy list for this year but then I pre-ordered a z 7ii so it will have to wait until next year. Oh well!

Thank you.. I'm learning bit by bit as to what this lens can do. I was pleased with the leopard photos as they were shot through a fence in a dimly lit cage. Locked on focus with little to no trouble

Covid, weather and paying work restricted opportunities to go out and shoot. Both images shot cropped 1:1.

Chimneys, early October, lens zoomed at 115mm.

Falling leaf, late October, zoomed at 155mm.

Happy with the lens, opportunities to use it are limited at the moment.

Another variety, as above pictures animals are free roaming in the park. These are nearly static, no problem getting the focus with Z7.

I got an email that the 70-200 was available from B&H but it was during dinner. By the time I got to the computer, they were sold out. It must have been a 15 minute supply . . . sigh . .

Taken a few weeks back when things were a little frosty. The 70-200S is a really great lens. I was not sure if I needed it, but the image quality is so nice I had to take the plunge.

Lance,
Really nice images! Sharpness is quite good as expected from this lens. In your opinion, can you comment on how the 1.4 TC affects overall image quality? I am trying to decide if I need one.
Thanks,
Dex
Dex,
The 1.4x TC has very little impact on IQ. Two of the above are with the 1.4x TC as is this one of a Tiger shot through glass, posted in the "animal" forum.

Thanks Lance. I have been thinking about the 2.0x version but a little hesitant as I have owned f mount TCs and was less than satisfied with them. The Z mount ones sure look like a good investment.
