In a YouTube video from last week, Tony and Chelsea Northrup review two of Sony’s portrait lenses and consider the price difference between the regular version and G Master.
We review Sony’s two portrait zooms: the 70-200 f/4G and 70-200 f/2.8 G-Master. The f/4 version of the lens is lighter and WAY less expensive, but how does it compare for sharpness, contrast, and light gathering in low-light?
As you’d expect, the G Master is going to produce significantly sharper images, it also costs $1600 more.
I’d base the buying decision on the focal length. Of all the Sony lenses you can buy, if you can only afford one, my recommendation is the 24-70mm ($2198 on Amazon). It allows you to shoot everything from wide to tight.
