Thanks everyone for sharing your impressions on both versions of the 100-400 lens. I may have to relook to see if it's worth the price difference but for now, there is no hurry.

I owned the 100-400 v1 and have the 70-400 g1. I can't directly compare the iq now since I no longer have the 100-400, but I feel that the Sony is a better lens. My copy is sharper, especially at 400mm. It's not a large difference though, so I would only make the switch if you can make a direct swap (or close to it.)

Since this thread loves talking about gear, any suggestions on cheap options for wider lenses.

Ultimately, I'll probably eventually aim for the Rokinon 14mm, but anything significantly cheaper for the time being. I don't shoot wide very often, but this past Timbers match left me wanting wider.

Found a Batis 25 and decided to give it a try. Figure I can sell if it for what I got it for if it doesn't work out.

Rationale? I want a wide angle lens that isn't a PITA to drag around like my 24-70 2.8II. FE 28 I tried out was nice, but too close to 35. We'll see how this works out.

Yeah. I talked to Phillip about it in detail. Only concern is the field curvature is rather pronounced with that lens. Otherwise it sure looked tempting.
I still need a 35 that's portable for my "take everywhere" kit.

Cool shot and congrats on the Batis 25. That has me VERY interested. But I can afford to hold out for a bit as they are expensive and I have 24mm covered well for now. But again, really lusting after that one WA that's a top notch lens.

Great composition/framing on this one. Batis 2/25mm looks like a winner to me. :)

put the A7rii on a healthy shooting spree today, the high iso is really amazing, at least on the level of the 6D, probably even better.

Eye focus is really good, did struggle when I REALLY pushed it, candlelit ISO12800, 1/80, 1.8 scenario. In regular low light, it didnt have much issues. Really loving the SOOC colors much more than the A7r, seems more accurate.

I've taken to shooting SOOC JPG unless I'm doing specific landscape "serious" shooting.

You try the long exposure thing yet? That's still my only concern so far.
And what lenses you using with it so far?

I haven't had the chance fit long exposures. Currently using the cv12(love, like a new lens), FE55(like a new lens, super good), ZE100 (still lovely), 70-400g1 works good at all focal lengths, somewhat gimped since it can't eye AF and lock on AF, otherwise the AF feels good.

Still learning the quirks with the new system, but I think it's all setup now. I am mainly bothered by the ISO button placement, why did they Chang it...
