    Received my SEL1018 today and I think I'm finally used up all my GAS!

    I'm pretty much covered now from 10-210mm with a few primes & a macro to boot.
    They aren't Zeiss, but the quality is fine with me and achieves what I like to do as far as being a Hobbyist in photography.

    Will be waiting to see if Sony comes out with a 85mm f/1.8 or 90mm f/2.8 macro...that will complete my collection of e-mount lenses.

    Thanks for taking the time to listen to my rant. :)

    I'm not out of GAS, I'm out of money. :p

    Congrats on the new lens. :)

    I'm in the same boat, drifting aimlessly with the current!

    It seemed a fitting if corny pun all round!

    I thought I was out, having acquired 7 lenses over the last two months, but then this morning I came across a Sigma 28-85 that looked fun, so now that's on the way. It's never ending.

    Seems that there is always a few drops left in the tank! ;)

    Ended up in Managua this weekend at the Sony Center in Las Galerias which had been trying to sell me the Sony Zeiss 24mm f/1.8 for months. It takes nice pictures.

    And this is what prices in Managua are like for a NEX 6:

    So, GAS is more expensive here than in the US even though the cost of living otherwise is lower if one doesn't own a car or an air-conditioner.
