    Pulled the trigger on this a few days ago and it came in today. Put it on the A7R2 that came last week (somebody tackle him) and walked around the farm this eve. It's undoubtedly overkill for my skill level, but knew I'd want this setup sooner or later and doesn't make sense to get it after the upcoming ride to Alaska. All shot at f2.8. FWIW, I have a test shot that I've done with all my 28mm stuff and the GM is clearly the best (thank God) - the 16-35 is the next best.

    f2.8 - 1/640 - iso100 - HDR 2
    DSC05558.

    f2.8 - 1/1600 - iso100 - HDR 6
    DSC05572.

    f2.8 - 1/800 - iso100
    DSC05593.

    f2.8 - 1/640 - iso100 - 24mm
    DSC05607.

    f2.8 - 1/250 - iso100 - HDR 2 - 70mm
    DSC05638.

    f4.5 - 1/100 - iso100 - 70mm
    DSC05623a.

    This one concerns me a bit, all of them in this series have some flare. Program mode/f7.1/HDR 6.
    DSC05578.

    I don't know, Bob. I think that's remarkably good flare control. At least I've never used a lens that did much better in similar circumstances. Congrats on the new toys... er... tools. I can't wait to see what you bring back from Alaska.

    Thanks David, that makes me feel better. We roll north Aug 20.

    This is my test shot I do w/ all my 28mm stuff. I did some 1:1 snips of the full res shot.

    Wide open 28mm shots look really good to me!

    Wow, in that first one it's like the tree is on fire, great catch! In your first series I especially like #3, simple and nice. It seems the lens doesn't stand in the way of good pictures which is exactly what a lens should do.

    From local Cars and Coffee this am. It's a target rich environment... :) One of the things I'm liking the most about this lens is the extra background defocus you can get over the 24-70/f4.

    A lot of broken links on the mobile app. Still, like the ones I can see.

    I've never tried a mobile app but they all show up on my computer, even in your quote. :hmmm: Is this a problem w/ all my pics? I try to link them in a way that will fit on smaller screens by default but enlarge to fill a 1920x1080 screen when clicked.

    Not your post or pics, it's the mobile app. It's still buggy, and I avoid it on my tablet.

    The song "Why can't we be friends" instantly comes to mind.
