Pet photography tips from an experienced Sony user:

The lens I use most often is the FE 70-200mm F2.8 GM OSS II. The focal length of 70-200mm is perfect for capturing pets in various outdoor activity states. For close-up shots, I also use a wide-angle lens like the FE PZ 16-35mm F4 G. At only 353 g, this wide-angle lens is very light and does not cause fatigue even after long periods of use.
