Hey guys, my current lens setup for my a7riii is the 16-35 f/4 and the 28mm f/2. I was thinking about getting the Batis 18mm as my next lens for when the Milky Way season comes around. The 16-35 is my do everything lens. I also have a 50mm 1.8 (happy i didn't spring for the 55 1.8 because I very rarely touch this lens) but the 16-35 never leaves my camera (unless im doing video on my gimbal then i use the 28). Most of my photos consist of landscapes and architecture where im normally shooting at f/8 and above which is why I didnt think it was so necessary to pay the extra for the G Master.
Now im kind of thinking do you think it would be wiser to sell the 16-35 f/4 that I have now and use the money I was planning to use for the Batis 18mm to purchase the 16-35 2.8 G Master? Is the weight different between the 2 16-35's significant? If i get the Batis 18mm it too would also make for a good gimbal lens since it is light. But I don't see myself using that focal length too much for videos.
Or should I wait and see what Sigma has to offer with their new line?
I also just thought about getting the Laowa 15mm f/2. This lens should make a better astro lens as it is a little bit wider, allowing me to use a slightly longer shutter speed, and its also a little bit faster. For astro and landscapes I also don't need the AF
