I just sold my Canon 7D and my 18-85 lens on eBay. Having now purchased the Sony 24-105 for my A7 II I don’t need that lens.
Since discovering that I can put my camera in APS-C mode, mount my Tamron 70-300 and get the equivalent of 105-450mm, I don’t need the Canon for wildlife.
So goodbye Canon and thanks for all the great shots, but I prefer my A7 II. Now the A7 III is out, I guess that’s my next upgrade but it’s not a necessity; the A7 II does just fine. I can live with its little annoyances.
So I’m also keeping my Canon 50mm 1.8, the nifty fifty, because that gives great results when I really want to push the bokeh and get the isolation. The 24-105mm has a constant f4 which is pretty good, but for better portraits the nifty is king, although switching can be a bit of a rigmarole.
My 28-105m is a good deal heavier and bulkier than the kit lens 28-70 but gives me superior imaging and more range at both ends. I found the 28-70mm was not very sharp at all, but the 24-15mm is sharp, sharp sharp. So sharp that I can hardly see the advantage of a G Master unless you have a 42mp sensor.
Here’s Plaza Major taken at 24mm on my recent trip to Madrid. Not bad at all.
