A number of quick reviews like this, nothing too in depth since it hasn't been released yet.

Re: What do you folks think, new Sony 200-600mm lens

Watched a few minutes of it, seems like its really good for what it is & for the price. Personally, I wouldn't have a need for 200-600mm. Rarely, at least. Maybe in a big catholic church. I occassionally shoot some youth sports & tournament type stuff but its pretty shoddy pay & I just go with a camcorder camera.

Seems a very niche market for a lens that distance. $2,000 while 'steep', for what it is its probably a decent price. In a year or two Sigma or Tamron etc will probably have a cheaper knockoff for about $1200. Tough to say but if one has the money & needs a lens like this, then go for it.
