Already pre ordered two. One for my a9 and one for my a7r3
Only two? I'd expect more from you...
Interesting he's taped the logos over in that photo? You would've thought Sony would like some hype about their lenses no?
Phew! Mine's 1804....
I just picked up a 28-70OSS solely for walking/hiking landscapes..... Seems sharp enough for me so far on an A7. £200 used & about 300grams!!
My usual/favourite kit is the FE85 & FE35/2.8 - waiting on that Sigma 35mm still!!!
Sony FE 24-105mm f4 G lens recall/repair.
I have it on pre-order with Amazon (now at £1062), I am hoping that the latest copies will not be affected by the issue!
Wtf. Becoming like nikon..
I mentioned to Mrs Woof Woof that there's a new lens coming out that'd fit my camera and it's going to be about £10k and she asked me if I'd like one (she's looking for something for my birthday) which is what she also said when I told her about the A9
Even though I'd never consider buying a £10k lens and will probably never spend what an A9 costs on a camera and would never let her spend that much on a prezzie for me it gives me a nice warm glow to think that the Mrs would spend that much on me
Embarrassingly I haven't even had chance to use it yet due to not having sourced an adapter. Hear good things about it though!
For half the price you could grab a a7r3 and 70-200 F2.8 lens hehe
It's my fault for winding her up at Xmas. I told her I wanted socks and that's what she got me whilst I surprised her with something shiny and expensive I keep reminding her what I bought her and that she only bought me socks and she's felt ashamed ever since (I think it's an Asian thing) and wants to buy me something nice
if my Mrs offered to buy me a £10k lens i'd certainly say yes. its my birthday in April..
The thing is that my money is now hers and hers is now mine and it's all ours and although I'm flattered she'd spend her money on me I'm not so happy at the thought of so much of our money being spent on camera gear.
I'll be happy enough with my Voigtlander 35mm f1.4 when it arrives and plenty of people wouldn't spend what that costs on camera gear
Mostly I'm happy to get a new old lens for under £100
I'm currently hovering over the bid button on evil bay for a nice old lens
Lol I think Sony has a fair bit to go to match Nikon’s recall history, you have to consider that Nikon has been around longer and manufacturers more
Sonys to busy releasing decentered lenses
twist is too busy buying his 20th A7 series camera, only to return it again a few weeks later
Sony's done a new global shutter...
How long until an A7 gets one????
Not my fault if it can't do what I need... and 'people' say it's as good as native Canon af but there's no way it is.
You're due a new hard drive by now aren't you?
It certainly focuses as good as the 5d4
In your dreams.
They tend not to actually for some reason, Fuji do the same, cover up what's being tested.
Perhaps in case users hate it and they need to withdraw it / redesign it...?
24-70 gm sharpness getting a bit of a slating, along with adapter performance
I don't believe this is anything new, the Sony performs better than the Nikon 24-70mm f2.8 but falls slightly short of the Canon's 24-70mm f2.8 lens for sharpness. That has always been the case (check DxO).
In reality the Sony 24-70mm f2.8 GM is sharp enough and can rival some primes when tested in isolation in real world situations.
not that his is a scientific test -but the few examples used looked considerably softer. which was a surprise to me.
I've got both at the moment Sony 24-70mm GM f2.8 and Canon 24-70mm f2.8 with Metabones V.
I can do a couple of comparisons this weekend. Camera is A7R III.
I can too if you want
Go on them folks, lets have a Sony 40-70mm f2.8 GM vs Canon 24-70mm f2.8 L shootout
Could be a crap 24-70 GM he has, they're bound to exist... I've never found fault with them at all, easily the best 24-70 I've ever owned and rivalled the Loxia 35 for sharpness when I was across in Berlin last year.
this is what it takes to get some photos in this thread
Mine is great too

Here's a shot taken today, cold wet and very miserable on the North Yorkshire moors.

A6000/FE 28mm F2
Is 7000 actuations a lot for a used A7? I have spotted one for a decent price but dont know if this is high?
Ello, long time no see
Well, i've been in NZ for just short of 5 months now, however, i've been that busy i've not had much time for photography, however, it hasn't stopped me GASsing
Just purchased a Sigma 16mm F/1.4 and Sony FE 70-300 G OSS yesterday, the sigma worked out at $669nz (about £330), which i've just noticed is about £100 less than UK pricing, the Sony, i got from the Sony store here in Auckland, it was up for $2499, i was going to hire it for a cruise i'm going on, but it would have been $400 to hire, so i thought sod it, i want it, i may as well buy it, so i agreed to buy it for $2499, went to the till to buy it, they said i could have it for $2124 (£1030ish). I wasn't going to argue with that haha. Anyway, that gets delivered on Friday and completes my kit now. However, i'mm not happy with my manfrotto tri medium backpack so that's going to have to change soon. Also, now, i just need to get out and use my kit now LOL.
