Just finally purchased this lens last night after reading extensive reviews. I am excited to start shooting this lens.

Me too...I bought it, then sold it after picked up 85L II.

Last week, I placed a bid on Ebay on brand new 135L with Best Buy receipt included(100% feedback seller), lens still under warranty until Sep 27th, 2014. I didn't expect to win @ $800. Guess what? I won...lens arrived today with date UB6017 with pinch-cap.

I'm not sure what to say now ??? :-\ ::) :) ;D ;D ;D

Actually i'm planning to buy one of these, but I don't know what's the difference between canon 300mm f/2.8 ls ll and canon 400mm f/2,8 is ll ? except the cost.

400mm-300mm=100mm .......Another glaring indictment of our education system...

+1  and weight

Third Party Manufacturers / Re: Sony A7 or A7R pre-order list

Sony might have a plan for the future, but its not apparent.  Yet another new series of lenses, and it will take years before they are all available.  There seems little point in getting a small camera and huge lenses, FF lenses do not get smaller just because the body does.  You'll have to buy the dead end A series lenses if you want a workable system.  Those who bought into Sony's A system are not left high and dry, as Sony has apparently abandoned it.  That's what they are known for, drop a product line and expect customers to run out and drop another $20K on the newest thing.  The NEX system will be going soon.
 
That's why pro's have kept away from Sony.  2-3 month turnaround for repairs, and they drop their product lines at any time.
 
I can't bring myself to fall for their tricks, I've seen it happen over and over with their products for the last 50 years.  They can make good products, but they can't stick with them.

Changes can be bad or good. It's a risk that most of us will have to take in our life.

But "doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results" is not for me.

I just saw this from Viggo.

It's amazing how Sony got 35mm sensor in a tiny body. As you can see, olympus om-d e-m5 Vs A7/A7R body size.


That's pretty easy if there is no need for a mirror or any optical viewfinder...

Yeap....its' easy for you and me to say.

Lenses / Re: 200 f2.0 first dissapointed customer ever? *it's back!*

Thanks! That's awesome of you! Tested mine a bit more today and dear god, I'm starting to see why people say the AF is superb with this lens. Completely different world now.

Hi Viggo,
Glad to hear you got your baby back in proper working condition ;)

I'm interested, but I don't do pre-orders, so I'll wait for reviews first - and possibly that the price will drop a bit before buying it.
Otherwise, it's pretty much what I've been looking for: a lightweight full-frame camera that is more portable for trips than the Canon's crop bodies. I will still use the Canon's larger bodies closer home for better handling, but on trips, this is about perfect.

Especially if they get a 35/2 and a 85/2 (or 1.8s) out soon the A7 will be darn good for holidays, able to tack about anything I can think of and still be lighter to carry around than an APS-C body with 28/1.8 and 85/1.8.

Actually, thinking about it, I may sell the 28/1.8 and 85/1.8 soon.

A lot of people waited for the RX1 price to drop, well, is still selling at $2800 dollars - I'm glad. I hope the price of A7 and A7R will be the same.

Compared to Canon:
1. 5D III - $3500 one day, $2800 next day
2. 24-70II - $2300 one day, $1700 next day

As owner of Canon gear, I do feel little  :-\ >:( >:(about their pricing

manual focus or AF?
Samyang lenses are all manual. Not that it matters much at 14mm and 24mm. :)

I can personally testify to the sharpness of the 14mm. It's easily on par with the 14L. Razor sharp and razor cheap too.

It does have some issues with moustache distortion, but it can be corrected with a profile in lightroom.

Direct mount? or you need an adapter for it? thx

853
All those overlapping focal lengths.  :-\




Luckily, Samyang is brining all their razor sharp primes to the table in 2 months, including the 14mm!


manual focus or AF?

Looks like mini 1D X ;D

Attach EF adapter and 85L II to it, you wouldn't be able to tell the diff. ::) :o :-\

I just don't see the point of buying 17.3 x 13mm system anymore. My 2 cents: Sony will release more FE lenses at much faster rate than other companies. Why? Sony has Zeiss doing lens design for them.
