    A weekend with the G Master lenses

    I had the 24-70 FE f2.8 and 85 f1.4 G Master lenses to play with for the past several days.

    My suggestion: start saving.

    Thanks for sharing Spencer! Awesome photos and I agree that those lenses look like they are totally worth saving for Can't wait to get my hands on them...

    Thanks again,
    Jay

    Thanks, guys! It was a cold night (for San Diego, at least--I had to wear a sweatshirt with my shorts). The waters were really still at about midnight.

    Such clear and beautiful shots, even with higher ISO levels, thanks for sharing! I have to ask, what does that giant feather near the tracks belong to in the first shot...

    You know, I really wasn't that concerned with the 24-70 f/2.8.....

    Then you had to post this.......

    Haha! First: thanks! Secondly: that giant feather is from a pterodactyl that occasionally flies around downtown San Diego. Just kidding. It's from a sago palm. San Diego has tons of those plants.

    You know...since I moved to the a7 family, I sort of became a prime shooter. Then suddenly this lens was announced. Shooting with it was like putting on sweatpants after a week of wearing slacks. It was nice.

    By the way, in case you guys are curious about how it compares size-wise with the current 24-70 f2.8 a-mount with LAEA3 adapter...wonder no more.

    Thank you so much Spencer for sharing all the info and the last image in particular as well. I had a feeling they would be about the same size in the end The weight of the new GM Lens is a bit lighter though @ 886 grams vs 975 grams on the A-Mount version. I honestly expected the GM lens to weigh more, but I was wrong...

    Remember, though, to add the weight of the adapter. The weight difference is noticeable.

    I figured I would share the image comparison here--it hasn't really been discussed anywhere else. I know when I found out the thread size of the GM (82mm), the first thought that went through my mind was HOW BIG IS THIS THING?

    Oh Yeah, I totally forgot about the Sony LA-EA3 lens adapter which adds 110 grams to the A-Mount lens combo. That is significant for sure! Plus the weight is all further away from the camera as apposed to being spread out a little more... That filter thread is also huge!

    Haha I asked the same thing. Scroll up to see (spoiler: it's a leaf)

    What's super uncanny is that you asked verbatim to my post...

    That silly palm. Every other tree in San Diego is either eucalyptus or a palm. I am thinking I should collect the fallen palm fronds (the leaves) and turn it into a bird costume.
