DxOMark has tested the new Sony FE 70-200mm f/2.8 GM OSS lens on Sony Alpha a7R II full frame mirrorless camera. This lens is still out of stock at most US stores: Amazon, B&H Photo Video, Adorama.com. Tested on Sony a7R II, it is currently best zoom lens for Sony mirrorless cameras, see the DxOMark below:

Sony FE 70-200mm f/2.8 GM Vs. Nikon AF-S 70-200mm f/2.8G ED VR II Vs. Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM:
Conclusions from DxOMark:
In terms of the Sony FE 70-200mm f/2.8, it’s not only the sharpest and best low-light zoom lens we’ve tested for the a7R II, it also outperforms many FE-mount prime lens options, ranking as the fourth-sharpest lens we’ve tested on the a7R II. Resolution at f/2.8 is first-class between 100 and 200mm, and peak sharpness of over 80% acutance in the field occurs between f/4 and f/8 for phenomenally sharp results on the a7R II.
Costing $2,598 and coming in at 200mm in length, and weighing nearly 1.5 kg, it’s a big beast for the diminutive a7 series of mirrorless hybrid cameras. This said, it packs plenty of high-end pro features for advanced autofocus operation, image stabilization, and all-round top performance in fast-paced environments.
