    I can't wait for the G Master version of the 135mm :D One lens I miss from my Fuji line-up is the 90mm f2.0 (135mm eqiv).

    How many shots have you taken with both to compare?

    I asked about the 28mm again in a wedding photographers group on Facebook this morning and quite a few recommended the Samyang as a light weight wide option. Pretty much everyone said the 28mm wasn't very good.

    Considering to join Sony family and buy Sony A7III- mainly for landscape. Looking for some advice, tips. Would like to know what lenses you use. I guess I am in the right place?

    together? - none

    I have owned them at different points in time. Been a long time since I had the FE28. I currently own samyang 24mm/2.8

    They either haven't used it or don't know what they are talking about or they don't like software corrections for distortion.

    Its a sharp lens, its easy enough to find one in shops if you want to try one out.

    I actually pre-order the Sigma too but they STILL don't have that in stock so I switched when this was annouced.

    Will give them a call.

    Just noticed a few places showing today as the release date, but nobody seems to be showing stock.

    I may not be done yet, contemplating getting a trigger and a flash + spare battery for my trip next week.

    But the 105/1.4 will have to go on hold until next year though.

    I know it's limitations Raymond, all I'm trying to prove is that sweeping statements like these are just wrong.......
    here's one closer for you though,

    I have a couple of bits I will still need to get but not so much for work, although I could be tempted with an A9 and the 24mm GM, but doing my best to keep temptation at bay.

    I am also looking some lighter lenses for when I am travelling not sure yet what to get, was originally thinking a 55 f/1.8 and something wider but now might just get a a 35mm f/2.8 and keep the 85 f/1.8.

    Will probably get a 70-200 but will probably leave that till after the new year. I might even just get the f/4 version as I rarely use it but I like them for outdoor ceremonies.

    Lensvid interviewed Sony at Photokina. Here are some key info:

    1) 50% of the Full Frame market share in Europe. And Number 1 worldwide.
    2) Sony is thinking about a solution on how to reintegrate the Playmemories APP function.
    3) If customers will request the integration of a top lcd screen we will add it on future cameras
    4) New A to E-mount adapter development is not planned

    The 24GM really is small.

    It is the same height as the Canon, much lighter to a point I think "where has all this money gone?"

    It reminds me of the size to the 85/1.8 FE actually, with the hood on the Canon is much bigger, but it seems Sony's hood is almost the same but it was sliced off half way.
