Carlo i might do the same route. sell the 2470GM for the FE35F14. I really hate my unintentional 24mm group shots.

are they of the same size? i might go with usual trinity.... 35-85-135

Yeah same here....

The FE 35 is smaller and a lot lighter than the 24-70GM....plus it opens up to 1.4 I'd still keep something on the UWA side of things handy though, because chances are there will be moment when you're in a bind and have to shoot really wide because you don't have the space.

I'll lean on the Loxia 21 when I need the width.

Right now I'm running 21, 35, 85, 70-200.

I agree with the need for an UWA. I have not tried my Canon FD20mm F2.8 for large group shot. I should try it soon. I'm going to list my 24-70 soon to FM.

nice. I need to re-install all my apps. my RII was back to factory reset after the repair because they changed the board.

How much are you lookin for your GM Vin? I'm right about to just order one from Amazon.

Just took my a9 outside with my 85 1.8 to shoot my kids playing with bubbles. Wow, just couldn't make it miss, even wide open at 1.8. This is what I'm talking about.

Gene something else that might have been stated (my work week, trying to stay caught up with posts), they pay then you ship.
It's a trust thing. Though to one purchaser I did ship a lens and told him 'try before you buy' but that was me and with no guarantees.
FM does get hit with spammers/con artists but I think that is rare rare rare. Communication can even lead up to phone calls. In fact I'll
be speaking with a man about the 500 IS ii this evening. We began a business relationship via FM that has continued beyond PMs.
But the trust thing is on them since they pay first!
When I sell something I always sit on the item and wait to hear they are happy. If not (so far hasn't happened) they ship back and I refund
via PayPal, all super easy. That way I keep my rating up for my next transaction.

Thanks for the additional info Robert, much appreciated.

After everything I heard up to now about the A9, I have to say that I really think that DSLRs are going to dissolve rather sooner than later.

Just imported 154 shots I took with just the 85, mostly wide open and I count 3 missed focus shots. I'll take those numbers any day.

I don't mean to turn this into a canon bash post , because there are things about canon dslr that I do miss ..

but WTF canon?
I mean its like they are just banking on the "old heads " to keep them alive..

I get it that the Majority of old pros want whats familiar,, and so their bread and butter Pro cameras have to stay consistent... so here they are not including some things that have become basic options with every other brand .. so ok , Dslr is not a video camera..even tho they started the whole dslr for video thing ..even tho they themselves said the 5d4 was made with the videographer in mind (yet lack such basic video assists like peaking ) my assumption is that it was not intentional but incidental that they began the dslr for video move..ok , so we're no video camera but lets show them what a stills camera really is ... errrr .. nope .. don't get me wrong , I m not saying they make bad cameras just not class leading in terms of the final Raw photo

but they have an opportunity with their crop sensor mirrorless m5 or m6 or whatever it is .. and its such a "Meh~" camera
I mean they could have made that there "lets F*** around and throw what ever we can at it " .. instead they played it safe ( and boring)

what they have on their side for now is the name "Canon" .. a lot of people in the market , point and shoot shoppers and entry level dslr shoppers see the name canon or Nikon and just assume they are getting the best bang for their buck

the new 6dii is right around the corner ... OOOOOOH its got 45 cross type af points:rolleyes:

I am actually interested :lol:
its got dual pixel and a fully articulating screen!!!:-P
no really I am interested .... not convinced but curious for sure
I don't expect to wowed by the 6dii ..but who knows

the a9 sound like one bad ass camera.. that price is a bit too much for me tho.. i'm sure its worth every penny but too much for me .. I've got my fingers crossed tht the a7iii checks enough boxes for me .. and is priced right
if not then the a7rii it is

i'm so baffled by the lack of reaction that canon and Nikon are having toward Sony

Well speaking of the a9, like many things I 'get' then study it post fact.
Where does the high ISO performance rank compared to the original A7S.
That's one camera I sold and have always regretted....but at the time that's what
it took to clear congress for A7Rii approval ;)

According to DXO Mark it's right behind the A7s in ISO. Rated higher than the a7sII.

I haven't shot super high ISO just yet, I'll try some tonight.

The DXO Mark scores put the a7sII noticeably lower than the original. While the numbers looks drastic, all told its often barely 1/2 to 2/3 a stop difference. But the A7s is rated at 3702, the a7sII at 2993, with the a9 at 3517 and the a7rII at 3434. What does this all mean? Not much to me, lol. But those who read dxomark like it's the gospel have something to read and discuss.
