Looks good David! what are your initial thoughts on the lens? Thinking of selling the 70-200 2.8II

So far so good...those were snapped very quickly over lunch yesterday, so my evaluation period is just getting started. Today I am heading out for a little sight-seeing over in Topeka, Kansas, and will be giving it a good workout. Should have a lot better idea tomorrow. I'm also planning to shoot it against my EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM.

I too am hoping to sell the Canon if the FE 70-200mm f/4 G OSS passes the test. I'll be grading on a curve, because a smaller/lighter kit is what I am aiming for. My plan is to overcome the light-gathering limitations of the FE f/4 zooms (16-35, 24-70, and 70-200) by adding an a7S to my bag. Exploiting its high-ISO prowess will make up for the slower lens. Between that and three native fast primes (55mm f/1.8 + future 35mm f/1.4? + future 85 f/1.8 or 135 f/2) I hope to build a strong competent kit around the FE platform.

All excellent David. Did you have to covert the Sony raw files to .dng before running them through Oloneo? I wish SNS-HDR was brought up to speed by being able to process Sony raw files.

Thanks much Gene! Photoengine is supposed to come with a plugin for Lightroom, but I've not been able to figure that out yet. So, I just exported the frames as 16-bit TIF files and opened them in Photoengine. BTW, that has to be the fasted HDR application by a long stretch.

I used Oloneo during its free beta period but decided to go with SNS-HDR instead, mainly because of what I felt was better merging of handheld exposures.

This is from the second hangar at the Combat Air Museum in Topeka, Kansas. This hangar was a step down from the main display hangar in level of maintenance. Light levels were substantially lower as well.

The original capture did not include the light beams, but the image seemed to want them, so the beams and dust particles were added in Photoshop.

Update: This is quite an excellent lens, but with some upcoming difficult buying decisions to make (5DSR, 11-24mm, a7R II) I have elected to return the lens to the retailer. I may re-purchase it later, but for now I'll just go forward with the FE 16-35mm and 24-70mm as my two native FE-mount lenses.

Sorry to see you go, David. I have always enjoyed your photos, going back to all the Zeiss ZE work.

I just picked up this lens (arrived today!), and am looking forward to years of enjoyment.

Congrats! This is a wonderful lens and I was sorry to send it back. For now I just need to resolve where I want to go with my gear. A few weeks ago I had the idea of selling all my Canon gear and going all-Sony. But, I had very strong reservations on a couple items, so I made a hasty retreat to reconsider my path forward. Hopefully this excellent lens will be back in my bag soon.

Thank you so much for the kind words! Likewise I look forward to your work with the FE 70-200mm f/4.

I recently did something similar. I had switched from Canon to Nikon about a year ago. Finally sold all my Nikon gear and went all-Sony. No regrets. So far. :-)

Hey, the new 35mm f/1.4 is going to feel like old times; it is reminding me of the Zeiss Distagon T* 1.4/35mm ZE. I hope it's even better. I had it pre-ordered, but canceled to wait for reviews and to really think it all out.
