BTW do you ever find the 200mm limit a pain? Im used to my 75-300 and I would love this lens but im not to sure if i would miss the extra 100mm reach
Yes Toby, I do! 200mm is too short for quite a few of my shots. But I'm not used to having anything longer, so it's not really a problem. I intend to get a 300mm f/2.8 some day, which would cover for the longer focal length, but that's gonna be years from now! Years, many years... Unless I win a prize in the lottery!
Thanks Gordon! The Zeiss 24-70mm f/2.8 SSM will be the next lens added to my bag, some time this year. No A900 though, not for some time at least... Although I'd love to have one, it's just a little expensive for someone my age. I'd better start saving for... the future
, as my parents always tell me.
Lensbaby, be aware that even though this lens is a lot more expensive, is does tend to hunt in low-light conditions or with fast moving objects. This is mostly due to the camera's AF sensors, but still, it's a significant problem at times. I've had to switch to MF more than I'd like to get some of my available light shots...
