Will you buy the new Sony 100-400 GM?
Yes. Already preordered. Just waiting for my copy.
Maybe. Wait and see for me
No. The adapted Canon 100-400 works for me
No. Would rather have the Sony 135 F1.8 GM
No. Too slow. I'll wait for the fast telephoto prime lenses to come out

Okay this is with the Basis 135 in crop mode. The other two took off while I was grabbing the camera. At some point I want to get this shot

Awesome Guy! to think right there in your backyard! Damn, I'm just not living clean.
I'd be at the local pet store buying pounds of mice! I know, the environmental types cringe at
that but either the pet snakes eat them or the owls.
Say they come every year? I'm mobile....just saying.

Now that's an opportunity for sure! Hopefully they will hang around a little longer so you have more photo ops. Eitherway nothing like seeing these intriguing creatures hanging out in the neighborhood. Very cool.

I'm happy that Sony finally released a very good e-mount equivalent to the a-mount 70-400G2. That being said, for my (birding) uses, I need more than 400mm and a faster aperture. I guess, we'll find out how serious Sony is about long lenses, when the 400mm prime arrives. If it's 2.8, performs/weighs around the same as the 400 2.8 FL and pairs well with the TC's, then this lens together with an a9 might be an interesting option, albeit no doubt very costly.

How would focus be on a regular A7II compared to some of the newer models e.g. A7RII or A7SII?

No worries. I think we shall soon see longer/faster Emount primes. Sony IMO committed themselves to producing at least a few of these super expensive pro level primes when they released the A9 as a Sports camera.

The fact that the 100-400 has turned out so well to include 1.4xTC performance, tells me we've really got something to look forward to in the coming months.

I tested in hopes that it would travel with me on my upcoming (ten days away) Kenya and Tanzania trip. I've done this trip before and know I need 400mm. But this lens feels super slow on the a7rii, plus I will be doing a lot of closer in work and portraits, AND need to stay light - so it's the 70-200 and a teleconverter for my wildlife.
That said I also did cave and buy an a9 which I suspect is the real match with this lens. Still, I need to travel a month in East Africa and cover everything from portrait to street to wildlife - so I'm bringing the 24-70 GM, the 70-200 GM (a rental),a 2x teleconverter, and an 85 TBD but yeah probably also the GM!

If I have a chance to test the 100-400 on the a9 I will probably be blown away but you can only take so much kit on a trip like this.....

Got it..... then sent it back because of a slight spacing shift in the elements causing it to not focus properly between 250-400
