    No, I got the last one from an authorised EU dealer. 330 euros. As opposed to $379 + possible tax and duty. (And a 50 days wait)

    I think the dealer should’ve charged or could’ve charged 20% more tbh.

    Well - I have just pulled the trigger on a A7R3 and a 24-70GM. Waiting for the 16-35GM and 70-200 F4 to come back in stock at Panamoz and will have them as well.

    Just need it to arrive before the weekend so I can have a nice play :)

    weren't you trying to sell off A7 related stuff to buy something else?

    I sold my Kiev 88 (6x6 medium format film) and also have my OM Zuiko 35mm Shift listed here because I haven’t used it for a while. I needed a new wide angle option and saw the 20/3.5 come up for a good price.

    I’m still in two minds about what to do long term but have been impressed with the Samyang 35/2.8 on my A7.

    I am moving over from Nikon - I think Sony now sits well for me as a landscape photographer.

    I have been a bit dissapointed with Nikons wide lens selection. Used a 17-35 for a few years but know it is not the best. Tried a used 16-35 F4 and it was worse than the 17-35. Ended up having to get work done on it by Nikon and even then it was not as good as the 17-35.
    The 14-24 is apparently great but I like to use grads and decided not to upgrade to the 150mm I would have needed. Cost alone for the 150mm Firecrest grads and NDs was crazy (still cheaper than a new system though :) )

    Canon glass is very good, but their sensors are playing catchup.

    So - time to give the GMasters a try :)

    The Nikon 18-35mm G is very good, but I don't think you'll be disappointed with the Sony 16-35mm going by the images Dan posted, looks very sharp.

    I have had a look at the 18-35 and it was a very good lens & nice and light.

    The problem is that 17mm isn't wide enough sometimes and I would have been limiting myself even more.

    The difference between 18 and 16mm is quite surprising :)

    I did ponder the D850 for weeks - it was the logical move.

    Having a lighter backpack will also help as well - although I could save much more weight by going on a diet!

    The sony 16-35mm/2.8 is about the same size as the nikon 16-35mm f4 :D

    But anyway if you don't need f2.8 zooms or AF at UWA end, there is plenty of weight/space you can save by using primes. If you like UWA lenses that's one place where you can make some decent weight/space saving by going to mirrorless :)

    I got it from http://www.vintage217.com/nl/ which I found through Wotoncraft's own site being their official EU dealer. Official site has a 50 day delay for pre-order but I got the last brown one in the EU. They have 1 black one left. I ordered on Thursday night, arrived today, it's shipped from Holland.

    The leather is really soft, quality is amazing everything is made to perfection. The smell, lovely leather smell !

    The down side. there are too many large size dividers. I wish I have 2 smaller ones and 1 large one, but apart from that this is just an awesome daily.

    This is probably how I will arrange it, so 2 dividers are not being used.

    [​IMG]

    Can fit 1 body with a 50/1.4 Zeiss , with a Canon 85/1.2 and a 35/1.5L. I don't think the Sigma 85/1.4 will fit though.

    Nice details

    Perfect daily bag. Don't need more than 3 lenses.

    Although if you shoot 70-200, this probably isn't your kind of bag.

    Thanks for posting, it looks lovely :D

    I've been looking at these since Steve Huff started going on about them. I have a Billingham, my second, which I've never used and currently use a cheap man bag but I do keep thinking about getting a nice bag... but some free time is what I really want.

    This is my first camera daily, I actually don't have any. I have one that holds 1 camera with 1 body which isn't so much a bag, more a cover to put inside my luggage.

    This has prompted me too look into this, found a long comparison vid on YouTube, actually 1st link.



    They are so close I can't tell the difference most of the time, I think the Samyang is sharper and they concluded the Samyang is the better lens and cheaper too.

    It's a new camera, it happens with all the brand's. The a73 is a top option though.
