As rumored, it will be a new model equipped with an aperture ring. In addition, the AF drive is equipped with two XD linear motors, and it seems that high-speed AF can also be expected. There are rumors that the new model is significantly lighter, but the overall length seems to have changed little, so it seems that the zoom will continue to be an inner zoom. Also, you can see from the figure that multiple AF motors are installed.
In addition, the long-awaited Sony a7 IV mirrorless camera will be announced on October 21, 2021, just about one week behind of FE 70-200mm f/2.8 GM II OSS Lens announcement.
