I've had mine on order since November. It has the same coating as the 500, works with the 121 focal points on the A99, Is four times faster than the MK1.
I expect the combination to be second to none.
See my post of the A99 with the 500mm
and watch this space in the beginning of February for photos, hopefully the kingfishers will have paired up by then, and I will have my licence.

The Sony 300MM F2.8 G mk2 lens is awesome. I received it yesterday. I calibrated it and took a few photos of small birds today, There can none better than the A99 with this lens.
