After the first look review on the Sony FE 70-200mm f/4, let's continue with a more specific assessment on its use and results.
This lens category is a favorite with a wide variety of photographers. First off, they are the darling of photojournalists everywhere, enabling them to capture action (reasonably) up-close while giving good reach in case one needs to stay safely away from trouble. Sports shooters also use them quite a bit for indoor activities, and they nicely suited to events such as concerts. Even the f/2.8 variants on a 35mm sensor can't provide ultra shallow DoF for portraits, so they will not be the first choice for portrait shooters. Still, especially in the studio, they are a popular choice, given the focal range provides a complete coverage of "portrait" focal lengths.
We have seen what the first FF mirrorless camera can do using adapted lenses, in fact finding out it is extremely suitable for such use. But the value of a camera system is primarily judged by its native lens collection.
These are from an exciting dance event I had the pleasure to photograph last Friday. It was organized by the Athens Authentic Jazz Dance school led by Irene Ragusini, and was eloquently named "T'Ain't What You Do (If It Ain't Got That Swing)". The location was the, more than fitting, neo-classical building of Parnassos Philological Society.
