Sony FE 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 G OSS Main Rivals

Listed below are some of the rivals of the Sony FE 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 G OSS.

Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 L IS USM

The Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 L IS USM is a new compact L-series telezoom lens. It offers the usual high build quality of Canon's luxury lenses, optical image stabilisation, a ring-type ultrasonic motor for fast auto-focusing, and an eight-blade circular diaprhragm which promises excellent bokeh. That distinctive white coating doesn't come cheap, though, so read our Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 L IS USM Review to find out if it's worth the investment.

Canon EF 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 DO IS USM

The Canon EF 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 DO IS USM lens was released back in 2004 as a smaller, lighter alternative to Canon's L-series telephoto lenses, yet still offering superb image quality thanks to its Diffractive Optical (DO) element. With the recent release of the 70-300mm L series lens, which we enthusiastically reviewed last week, is the slightly cheaper 70-300mm DO lens still worth considering?

The Fujifilm XF 55-200mm F3.5-4.8 R LM OIS is the first ever telephoto zoom lens for Fujifilm X-series compact system cameras. Offering a focal range of 84-305mm in 35mm terms, 4.5 stops of built-in image stabilisation, a compact and lightweight design, 0.3 second auto-focusing and an aperture ring, is this new 55-200mm lens a worthy addition to the XF family?
