Crossposting a couple pics to keep this thread going. Surprised more people haven't picked this lens up yet!

It's really attractive, but I'm worried about that 24-27. I love having a bit of WA on my mid-range zoom. Right now I'm using my Tamron 24-70 Canon mount with the MC-11, but may make the switch eventually, if the weight starts to get me down.

You could try the Tamron 28-75 f/2.8 (the old model) via MC-11 (since you already have the adapter). They can be had dirt-cheap in EF mount, and I was very happy with mine on Metabones. Basically, a native focusing performance. That'd give you an idea whether 28mm is wide enough - for cheap.

Arutemo, I should have known I'd run into you over here:th_salute:
Actually, the first full frame lens I ever bought was the Tamron 28-75 for a Canon 5D (the original). It was light and sharp, but I really wanted that extra width for city walk-around stuff. It was nice, but I can't see myself buying it again, when I already have its replacement (the Tam 24-70). I suspect I'll oneday wind up with the new Sony mount, but it will probably be way down the road, after the price has adjusted a couple of levels.

I went ahead and got one. Love the lightness, but not crazy about the length. Haven't used it much yet...probably will on Christmas.
What body will you be using it on? I thought you were shooting with Canon...

I sold the Canon and have moved to Sony and M4/3. I have an A7R3 now. Got tired of all the heavy gear.
Welcome to the "lifestyle" :biggrin:
I think you will love the world of vintage and manual glass you can play with on the Sony A7 series. ANd then there's the Techart...

:hide: I hope not! Last thing I need is more GAS!!
I'm scared to ask, but what's Techart?

BTW, this lens is wicked sharp, and has great contrast. I'm loving the look. I really wish it had that extra 4mm on the wide end; I was missing it right away, but it is certainly a fine piece of glass.

Techart is an adapter that adds autofocus to manual lenses. Quite incredible. You can get that thing for under $300 and put any vintage manual lens on it, and BANG! You have got AF! It communicates electronically with the Sony's sensor, which allows it to move the attached lens back and forth some 5 millimeters to get focus. I think you should get it! :wink: The discussion is here:

Anybody try the Techart Pro AF Leica M adapter yet?

Local civic artwork, Tamron 28-75 f/2.8 on a7Rii.
ISO 100, 1/100 sec @ f/5.6, 43mm

In retrospect, should've focused on the eyes, even though it's a statue...
