And that raises another concern...Sony tends to put an extra high price on their lenses. Have you seen the price for their a-mount 70-200mm f/2.8. $3K! Yikes! Compared that the FE 70-200mm f/4 is a bargain. Ridiculous. :lol:

Across the board, except for the 55mm, the FE lenses are all overpriced imo. OTOH, I guess I would say the opposite about the camera prices. The a7 II is priced pretty impressively I think. :)

I don't like the the notion that they're not going to make f/2.8 zooms. If there was a new Alpha mount camera available I would but it in a heartbeat.

My guess is that it's because of the sales figures. Canon sells a lot of lenses and so does Nikon. Sony can't keep up with Canon and Nikon in this regard. And lower sales figures for lenses means higher prices for lenses.

i was considering the 70-200 but wished it was a 2.8 and not an f/4 especially for that price....

My rented a7ii arrived last night.

My biggest beef so far is that you can only disable the rear screen using the menus – you can't assign it to a C button.

I have my C4 button to deactivate the rear screen. Doesn't disable it entirely, just blacks it out.
