You considered trying the Samyang? I kind of wish I kept my Sigma and I'm tempted by the Samyang, but the Sony 85mm is just hard to get rid of as it's so good.

I'd definitely get the Sony if that's the case.

I'm resisting the urge to change all my gear. After getting the 16-35mm GM, I feel like I'd be better off with the 24mm GM and selling my FE 35mm. I might rent the Sigma 24mm for a few days to see how I like the FL.

I’m going round in circles too:) (what’s new!). I’ll check out that Samyang

Thanks for the comments both, I should have some time later this evening, and I'll share some more thoughts on why I like the 85 Samyang so much!!

Last post, promise!!

Two from new years using the 55, and then two of birds in my back garden using the 200-600. Gotta say, it is a little bigger and heavier than I was expecting!! But getting used to it a little now. First time using a supertele. Had the 70-300L before, this thing is literally twice the length and weight. I want to stick to hand holding, Im using the tripod collar now to take most of the weight, which allows me to zoom in/out fairly easily. Any tips for a supertele novice!?

Nice! Those group shots are a real challenge. I'll have to try your technique next time I have to shoot a group.

Especially with the kids, have a toy or something on top of the camera. Have someone else hold it, make noises, so they look at you, not at random things. Shout at adults also to look at you. A few shots and you should be done. Don't need any crazy fps IMHO.

high FPS is not necessary...but IME it sure helps...kids open and close their eyes fast...move fast and change expressions fast...

It's a light refraction, so you have the entire light spectrum :-)

I knew you like those, here is another one, not bad for a 50 year old car.
