Anyone ?

Are you willing to send me 12 shots with this lens coupled to a A7III ?
I would like to see them on my Mac...

Thanks ! :)

I haven't bought it nor will I do so in the foreseeable future, but you can download raw and jpeg samples from two sets of samples on dpreview. They used an A7Rm4 and A7Rm3 for their samples but you can downsize them to 24 MP if you want to get a feel for what the lens does on an A7m3. I just guess that sharpness will be excellent and you don't need to resize for judging color and contrast.

One reason I originally came to Sony was to get rid of my huge Sigma 12-24 (Canon) and pick up the (relatively) light and tiny Sony 12-24 F4. I believe the main advantage of the new lens is to get F2.8, but for my shooting style, that is no advantage at all (I almost never want shallower depth of field or need more light when shooting UWA).

Part of the appeal for the 12-24 f/2.8 is the speed for astrophotography. The inconvenience of the bulbous front element hindering filters, is something tolerated.
