Looking for sports zoom for Sony a7ii full frame camera

    I have to say that I get a bit confused about what third party leness will fit the Sony a7ii full frame camera.

    I'm looking for something around a 70mm-200mm lens. The Sony f2.8 is too expensive for me, the f4 version is possibly - at a stretch - affordable second hand - but what other third party alternatives should I be looking at?

    All ideas appreciated.

    Must be someone using Sony full frame gear here, no?

    Sony and Zeiss both make E Mount lenses for the full frame 7 series. I believe Rokinon/Samyang has them as well.

    Because the Sonys are mirrorless, any lens can be used with an adaptor.

    I use a Sony lens for autofocus street shots; for anything else where the scene is stationary, I use second-hand Nikon and Canon manual focus lenses with cheap adaptors. I think it's possible to get expensive adaptors that will allow the use of third party autofocus lenses; but I haven't really looked into that.
