Is the Sony version significantly lighter than the canon equiv f4, not 2.8)?
If not, there's really no point.
Those Batis lenses are both on my list now. Definitely wanting to focus more on a prime lens lineup w the Sony. I'm kinda done w zooms, hehe.

Here ya go. I was surprised to see that the Sony has a shorter mfd than the Canon.

It really depends on your needs. For me the three FE zooms are all about convenience; all about walk-around usage. In that type of usage I want that flexibility of the zoom and good AF performance. So, I would say that while there may not be a weight advantage for the Sony 70-200mm (don't forget to factor in the weight and extra length from the EF-to-E adapter!), it does enjoy a strong advantage - on the a7 series - in AF performance.

Also, as a former EF 70-200mm f/4L IS USM owner, I can say the OSS on the Sony is super quiet. The IS on the Canon used to drive me crazy.

But, again, it all depends on your usage needs. If you're mainly needing the lens for landscapes (especially with UWA zooms like the EF 16-35mm f/4L IS or EF 11-24mm f/4L) then AF may not be needed.

For me, the three FE zooms are my go-to lenses when I need the ultimate in flexibility - it's nice to be able to get excellent image quality from three lenses that cover a range from 16-200mm.

Primes are mainly about optimal image quality. For the most part I am a prime shooter. And even though I describe my FE zooms as my go-to walk-around lenses, I also frequently enjoy the creative challenge of picking up a prime and going out to capture images that suit that one focal length. It can lead to disappointment when you encounter a potentially amazing shot that doesn't fit the fixed focal length, but it also leads to a different sort of creativity where you might find great shots that you wouldn't have otherwise considered had you had zooms.

I like having both zooms that maximize flexibility, yet provide excellent image quality, and primes that maximize image quality and BOKEH!! :)

BTW, my Barn and the Chickens shots got Flickr explored, so that was nice. :)

Off topic, but Flickr is interesting. It used to be that I rarely got "Explores", but now days, just about every time I go on an outing I get one or two. They must have changed the parameters and lowered the standards.  :p

I've never been explored on Flickr. Never really understood how that worked. hehe. Congrats though.

I understand exactly what you mean about having the convenience of AF with the zooms (where it's all about flexibility in both AF and FL). I'm new to shooting primes (besides my occasional macro 100 usage), and new to MF, but have been enjoying that ride thoroughly. I certainly think there's a place for each. Almost like having 2 parallel systems (a set of primes for size, weight and "slower" shooting, and a set of zooms with AF and more FL versatility for walking around or general purposes).


Sony A7RII and a bunch of lenses.

Beautiful pictures everybody!

Rocking a 35mm and Batis 85 I'm looking for a telelens with some macro-abilities. Is this the lens to look at?
