Interestingly enough I find that 35 F2 is able to produce the aesthetic I want, but not 35 f2.8. You'd think 1 stop doesn't make that much of a difference, but at a wider FOV it really does. Things look much flatter at f2.8.

This is why there's a few of us waiting on the Sigma FE 35mm announcement..... :) I certainly am and I'm hoping by the beginning of August too as I've a holiday booked for then!!

So, the Canon 6D is sold. I finally broke down and decided to go all native FE, so it was the first thing I listed. I don't think i'd really used the 6D in about 2 years.
The funds have already been diverted (before they even hit my bank account) to acquire a used FE 70-200/4, which will allow me to sell my Canon EF 70-200/4.
Proceeds from that sale will then fund the FE 85/1.8.

After that, I will only have one Canon lens left, the 100-400, which will stay until I can acquire an FE 100-400 later this year.

I'm also keeping the Sigma 35/1.4 until I make up my mind about a 35mm prime replacement.

End result:
- A7rII
- Batis 18/2.8
- Batis 25/2
- Sigma 35/1.4
- FE 55/1.8
- FE 85/1.8
- FE 70-200/4

On the chopping block:
- FE 24-70/4
- CV 15 III

David/Travis and/or other landscape/cityscape shooters, can you share how you have your custom buttons configured? I just updated the firmware to 4.00 and wanted to tweak my assignments. Thanks!

Well, I'm no help at the moment. I haven't updated yet and I still have some assignments that are leftover from when I was thinking about diving into video (for example, C1 is currently set to record).

C2 is always my manual focus magnifier.
C3 is set to Eye AF (which I still have never actually used!).
C4 is currently my silent shooting toggle.
The bottom click on the radial dial is set to Zebra, in case I want to switch off Zebras.
AEL button is my back button focus.

Really haven't put much thought into the buttons lately (:(), so would love to know what you and others are using.

Thanks for sharing. Here is my setup:

C2 Steady Shot (was Movie)
C3 Focus Mode
C4 White Balance (need to change this)
Center Button is Focus Standard (awesome new feature)

Control Wheel:
Left Drive Mode
Right ISO
Down WB
AEL EyeAF
AF/MF set to AF On for back button Focus
Focus Hold Button set to Focus Hold

Fn Settings from top left to right:
Top Row
Focus Area, Drive Mode, SteadyShot, Peaking Level, Zebra, Smile/Face Detect

Bottom Row
Focus Mode, ISO Auto Min SS, Silent Shooting, Shoot Mode, Audio Rec Level

Bottom Row
Focus Mode, ISO Auto Min SS, Silent Shooting, Shoot Mode, Audio Rec Level

with floating AF, control wheel is basically unusable (unless you shut it off and use it, breaks my rhythm so moved to Fn).

My setup is more optimized for shooting people, most frequent C buttons are setup accordingly.

focus hold = eye AF as well as AF/MF, AEL set to AF bbAF
c1 focus settings
c2 min shutter for auto iso
c3 magnify
c4 send to phone (overtaken by floating AF, but I'm ok with turning off floating AF since this feature is used when I'm not actively shooting).
center focus standard

mostly same as Fn settings, except I have live view settings instead of audio levels, ISO instead of min SS, steadyshot focal length instead of zebras, bracket timer instead of focus area as I do a longer timer if I'm doing longer lenses.

I'm going to add one lens for the a9, the FE100-400, and the 1.4TC. Doubt any other lenses will ride that beast.
Like the a99ii, I think I've taken the 70-400G off one time :)
But I'm not with the a9 just yet, still waiting to see if the TC works a charm.

Welcome back, MM!

And here's a pano from 6-7 individual shots, using the Sigma 35/1.4.

The original is 20,000 pixels wide, so I could probably print it out on the side of a building...:)

Sad news on the 12-24... Needs 150mm filters...

Will need to pass on that, now hoping the 16-35 proves to be worth the premium price
