That thread made me smile. I have written it into my will that to save her the grief of having to sell my camera gear, my best friend is responsible for finding it a new home. Her selling it for what she THINKS it is worth would be enough to bring me back

Haha! That's great!

My Roman name might be Gasamaticus ;)

Well the FE50mm Macro arrived today. I can see why most would not like it at all. King of
slow focus but the fly-by wire is better than a lot of Sonys so manual focus when actually doing
macro...along with peaking....will be fine. Weigh/size/finish all very nice.

That leaves only one more. The Laowa 15/2 for MW shots and I have until April to pull that one off.

OK David just for you I brave 15F and hide in the blind....the blind is just a camo net I was sitting behind this time
so no wind protection.
With the 70-300G.

Looks like the 70-300mm might be better fit for me than the 100-400mm.

you should try the MF of all your sony lenses on the R3, greatly improved experience.

Rent first or borrow mine before you add one.
I remember in Iceland many landscaping opportunities at 300...me thinking you'd prefer landscapes over dinky birds.
Just looked at FM for any used listings-didn't see any in FE mount.

This weekend I'm putting it on an a6500 for a nephew while we hunt cranes. He should have no excuse to get one.

Best for me was getting the Batis 18mm. Love it. Use it a lot for landscapes and astro and really looking forward to this year's astro season.

Didn't really have a worst as I didn't buy much at all. Not for lack of wanting, that's for sure.

Just brought a second hand Zeiss FE35 f2.8 that I should get next week. Will see what the rest of the year brings :P ..........

This year I plan to add an UWA lens at some point.

Also if a decent sized 35 F2 is released, I'll probably add that to my kit. I'm selling the Rx1rII basically in anticipation of that happening this year. Lastly, if a native 135 f2 is released and it isn't insanely priced, I'd consider selling the Sigma...but TBH the Sigma does everything I need it to and I don't mind the size for a dedicated portrait lens.

But basically I plan on maximizing everything I earn on photography this year since my kit is basically fully built out. I only want to go into the hole for the UWA...anything else I buy will be funded by selling existing gear.

I had a good copy too. Just wanted the reach and power of the 100-400 otherwise it was a gem of a lens

My cheap "L" bracket for the a7rIII arrived today and I must say I'm a bit disappointed after being very pleased with my cheap bracket for my a7rII. The fit isn't very good and the wider area to account for the grip is too big, leaving gaps. When the camera is placed in portrait orientation on the tripod, there is very little 'meat' to attach to the arca-swiss mount.

Since I don't shoot in portrait mode often and when I do it's indoors, this will do until the Kirk brackets become available again.
