Sony A7 - Need Zoom Lens - thoughts?

Postby FocusonFoto » Fri Nov 22, 2013 8:59 pm

A7 Zoom Lens - Opinions please.

Just purchased the Sony A7, going on holiday to Norway in a couple of weeks and need a zoom for it. My options seem to be:-
1. Sony adapter with A mount lens, looks like the 70-300G would be best, this unfortunately doesn't give me Optical Image Stabilisation which I feel you need in a zoom lens.
2. Sony 18-200 original zoom lens for the NEX system, this is the only zoom where the OSS works with the A7, this will only give me 10MP which is a shame.
3. Metabone smart adapter iii with either Canon or Nikon lens. This keeps everything FF but the adapter is hard to find plus it has slow autofocus.

Any other suggestions?

There's SEL 2870 Lens which is part of A7 kit. Not super zoom, but full-frame at least.
