Ok one decision made....
In August I will be selling the Lox 21 and FE 55 and getting the 16-35 GM. Its not as huge as I thought and if it follows other GMs it will be close to the lox.
Still trying to figure out the A9..... dont want to wait till fall but imagine there will be some "christmas" deals out then.
Decisions to be made? 70-200gm or 100-400 gm depending on which way I go I could sell off the 90 mac and 70-300 right away to pick either of those up
If the a9 fits your needs, go for it. I decided that the feature set made my decision easy. I was able to get mine new for $500 off, so $3,998 made it easier to pay. I don't doubt that the a9 is a specialized camera and the upcoming a7iii might be the better camera for the masses but I don't think they'll make the a7iii simply the underclocked a9, there's bound to be some sort of compromises.
As much as the deals are coming, I'd rather pay less for a camera than get a memory card thrown in or some sort of lens rebate being thrown in.
Right now with my a9, 24-70GM and 85 1.8 I'm extremely pleased. Still deciding on a 35 option so decided to wait and see what the Sigma 35mm ends up being like. My next lens will be the 70-200GM and I should be set.
