      I would have ordered one myself if I wasn't about to pull the pin on a 16-35 f2.8 GM.

      •  

        Im thinking of the same

      •  

        16-35 GM is amazing, it's well worth the money. I don't regret buying it even though it is expensive.

        Trigger*

    I picked up the 17-28 tamron f2.8
    price not entirely comparable @ 1300 but it is somewhat of a consideration. reasonably happy with the lens - not tack sharp but a good compromise to freely go between wide and extra wide

  •  

    If you have the 24-70 f/2.8 GM, then this is just size advantage? Unlike ordinarily prime is usually faster.

    I always thought that the compact trio is aimed at A7C users.

    •  

      Video work, gimbals will easily balance all 3 lenses as they are similar size and weight

    2.8 ewww

    I kid. Decent price but if you are going primes, save up for a faster lens or just get a 24-70 2.8 zoom

    Perfect for people who bought a A7C the other day. The perfect travel combo. Personally went for the 24mm 1.4gm for my A7iii.

    •  

      Was meant to compare 24 and 35 at a shop on weekend but didn't manage the time.

      I think 24 may be too wide.

  •  

    Seemingly price error?

    •  

      They still haven't changed it, so probably not

      •  

        I called up the Sony store and he offered me $949.

        My card got charged already

    still showing 599

  •  

    If I have the 28mm F2, do I need to look at this? Is it optically better? The 24mm does have an aperture ring on the lens itself though.

    •  

      Not really

      I'd go for a different range like a 50 or 85 just depends what you like

        Yeah I bought the 85mm F1.8 from the recent deal. That lens is still available at $575 (after CB).

          Where is this

              @impoze: Thanks impoze!
              Apologies jason and Seraph for the late reply. If you're interested, get it quick. However be aware that Georges doesn't seem to have ready stock for shipping. Mine is stuck in processing for few days now. Their customer support said it has been ordered with Sony Australia. I guess we're just waiting for stocks from the distribution.

                @Davesday: digidirect is close enough to price if they have stock

                •  

                  @impoze: I checked with Digidirect. It doesn't have any stocks either. Both Digidirect and Georges are going to have to place orders with Sony. When I chat with Georges' customer service, they don't have an ETA either. I guess this may turn out to be one of those 'group buys' where we wait a bit due to the 'component shortage' issue and the pandemic.

    Wondering if I were to pick up the A7C kit with the the 28-60mm lens if this would be a complimentary lens or worth looking at something else?

    •  

      I think that lens for me will just end up in the bag or cupboard. Will try and travel with it but I think I will use the 16-35 mainly as I mainly do landscape and travel.im still waiting for my a7c from the recent jb deal though

      I don't think it's the most natural pair with the 28-60. 24mm is relatively close to 28mm, and you're only getting a moderate speed advantage with this prime. It really depends on what you want, but the 85mm 1.8 would be worth considering as an affordable fast short tele, or the 16-35 f/4 if you want something wide and versatile.

      •  

        After a bit more research I'm considering the Tamron 28-200mm and the Sony 85mm 1.8.

        Would it even be worth then picking up an a7c with the 28-60mm or better of just getting the body and saving the $200 for another prime down the track?

        • +2 votes

          if you're already going to get the tamron 28-200, pass on the kit lens

    received my order today

    very light & compact

    Anyone here bought this, decided it's not for you and want to sell it? Please pm me :)
