For the record the Sigma 85 and 135 Art is just as sharp if not sharper than the 200/2. Renders very close. I'll pickup a 135 1.8 to be my "poor man" 200/2 but in native sony. Should be a bit more usable and lighter.

Coffee cups and test charts...

I'm just a husband and dad to 4 kids. Just want to shoot them as they grow and try to fill in various other things in the mean time. I like all aspects to photography so I really like learning and trying new things. I'm not that good but I get better as time moves on.

Kinda hard to do any photography when your waking up at 3:30a leave the house at 4:20a driving 1.4hr to work then working 14hrs then drive 1.4hr back home then bed by 10pm and repeat for the past 3 months.

I'm tired. We finally finished cutovers so I'm back on a 5/10 schedule and have weekends off but now I'm backlogged on projects around the house. It never ends.

Lovely! Just moved from WA last December. Wish I had this lens when we went to Skagit for the Tulip Festival.
