Those are some awesome prime lenses you got there. Unfortunately, I've always been a lazy photographer, so pretty much stick with zoom lenses and never got into using prime lenses much (with the exception of the 100 L IS macro lens), the 3 small primes (40 / 50 & 85) that I have always been used more as "back-up" lenses ... but recently I got hooked to the focus peaking function in Sony a7, now I'm hooked to primes ... in fact, I am quite seriously considering to get the EF 14mm f/2.8 L II lens to go with an a7R that I plan on getting in the next month or so ... but I am torn between that setup and a Sony NEX6 (crop framed mirrorless camera) + 10-18mm f/4 lens ... my thought behind that consideration is to have a small size camera permanently mounted with an Ultra wide angle lens + the a7 with 24-70 f/4 lens (arriving on Sunday) + 5D MK III with 70-200 f/2.8 L II & EF 2x III extender ... that kind of setup (with a reach of 12mm to 400m) makes my travelling a lot more simple and I don't have to think about which lens to carry and which one to leave behind etc etc ... choices! choices! choices! the more you have the more difficult it gets
Specs readers will not understand the weight & size of A7 series and Fuji mirrorless. I have stopped discussing/debating with specs readers. It doesn't do any good for both parties.
It's true that A7 series is not a pocketable camera, but it's SO MUCH smaller and lighter to walk around with. The BEST part being much smaller size camera is we don't look like a "photographer" on the street. Especially when you in another country.
For oversea travel, I'm good with just A7r + Zeiss FE 55mm + Zeiss FE 24-70 IS.
I understand you brother ....did I mention stay with native Zeiss FE lenses
Photos below show Zeiss FE 55mm size Vs some of Canon popular primes and zoom. From left to right - 50L, zeiss 55mm, Canon 85L II and Canon 24-70 II. The weight is HUGE diff.
I rented Canon 14mm II, it's very nice lens. Keep in mind, there is no screw-on filter
otherwise, you would see this lens under my signature.
I have Zeiss FE 24-70 f4 on pre-order as well. I believe shipment in US got delay until late Feb.
Enjoy your toys and let us know how you like it. My A7R will arrive this friday. I will post some photos with Zeiss FE 55mm
Below is one of few photos I took with A7 + Zeiss 55mm @ f1.8. straight out from camera, Zero edit, only resize to post here.
