Thank you for the answer.
I realize all the buzz is alpha9 but for pixels on target the a6500 still has an advantage.
Coupled with the TC the a6500 gives the reach I need.
Finally greater than 400mm (with the TC) native on e-mount!!!

Any idea if the 100-400 with a TC will autofocus on a 6500?

EDIT: Sorry- should have read a page back! Looks like it will, although we'll see for sure soon enough.

If I have an excellent copy of 70-300G, would still a 100-400 needed?

Thanks.

I know most folks here couldn't care less about a-mount, but may I remind everyone that with the 70-400G2 Sony has already shown that they are capable of producing an excellent long zoom that may not be as outstanding as the Canon 100-400 II, but very close. I may be too optimistic, but given my experience with long a-mount zooms and the 70-300G, I'm not too worried about the performance of this lens.

Put my pre-order in at B&H. Will test out against my good copy of the 70-300 G OSS lens and the shots I saved from my tests with a 70-200 GM plus the 1.4x and 2.0x tele converters.

I just pre-order this beast! Will be comparing it to my zoom for landscapes. (Zeiss VS 100-300)

Depends on what you shoot. I like my 70-300G a lot for pseudo macro shots of flowers of foliage, but for wildlife/birds (I'm not talking about zoo pictures here) 400mm are the absolute minimum. Even on an APSC body, I've found 400mm is often quite short.

Fred,
I will be very interested in seeing those results. I've been looking for a good conditioned copy of that Zeiss 100-300 as well.

Thank you Joshua. I do think I'm getting that speed on my a 6500 although I haven't really tested it to that level yet. I guess I'll have to do a test


Bob, I found out more about this. You have to send in your LA-EA3 to Sony. Watch this

Patrick is talking about that at about the 9-minute mark but feel free to watch the entire video. Actually, I am more excited about what he said about Canon lenses later on in that video. Wow, Metabones and Sigma (MC-11) will be busy..... .

I would be surprised if the new Sony zoom beats it at the 100-200mm range but it is very possible it will do better at 250-300mm. Let's see!
I used to own the Canon version of this lens and loved it.

I am guilty as charged, too but I am still wavering on the A9 although the video from Patrick I posted above made me more inclined in doing so because the huge potential of the MC-11 and Metabones to work as well with that new camera.

I'm waiting on the A9 as well as I'm hopeful for an A9r. In fact, I just ownership of a very lightly used A7r II (shutter count of 2) and sold my copy figuring may be several months before an A9r or A7r III gets announced.. BTW - thanks for forwarding that video on the LE-EA3. I'll be sure to check it out.

with all this serious technical conversation for 24 hrs now, i watched the video a 2nd time and my brain is so ready for the wkend, the only question i had after watching it was - has anyone set any protocol for how to handle the next generation when 2 kids get married that both have double-hyphenated last names - are we going to end up with a generation of kids with 4 last names? how is that going to work?

in all seriousness, that was a great video by PMR (i always enjoy is level headed style) but he'll never outdo himself b/c he set the gold standard when he put together the 'disc golf' video - that is a lens review hall of fame production - i mean, DISC GOLF - you should see how serious these people take it!

Why shouldn't they take disc golf seriously, regular golf is riotous with fat old men in atrocious styles chasing little balls over environmentally disastrous lawns in specially designed vehicles.

hey, i'm not knocking it - i admire anyone that takes anything seriously - other than people clogging up city streets protesting "environmentally disastrous lawns" and related non-atrocities.
