    Jorge?

    Hopefully it's a shift to something more exotic.

    Re: Selling all my Sony stuff.

    The reason I went for the Sony was for the AF Zeiss lenses. however, I only have 3 of them, 85, 135 and the 16-35. I thought that by now there would be other choices but unfortunately not. I love the 85 and 135 but am not thrilled with the 16-35. I may end up with Canon or Nikon using the manual focus Zeiss glass including the new 21! Will have to wait and see. If Sony reads any of this, they can basically say they are losing a customer because of the lack of Zeiss primes. I think the A900 is an awesome camera but I need more glass HIGH QUALITY glass.

    Jorge,

    Good luck with the sale. I guess you might be coming back over to the dark side again.

    Btw, for anyone looking at the this Sony listing and doesn't know Jorge, I've bought from (and met) Jorge and he's a straight shooter.

    Thanks guys. I have forgotten how much stuff I own and sell. When you are not a professional its just a consumer game

    Re: Selling all my Sony stuff.

    Kit,

    Long time no hear from.

    Since I am not a professional but rather an enthusiast, I really have no brand loyalty. Except when it comes to glass. I tend to follow the glass I have been eying the new Zeiss glass coming out for Canon and it looks very impressive. I like the electronics and adjustment of aperture ring via camera controls. However, I also like the Sony and the image quality. Having said that, let me complicate things more. I love the Nikon bodies

    So here is my dilemma. In my opinion, Nikon bodies are the best, Canon offer good glass via the new ZE line of Zeiss, and Sony offer the best file from any dslr. These are just my opinions so I am not starting a brand war here. Having said that I would love to morph all 3 But I can only jump from one to one and play with them.

    In the end, If the Sony does not sell in the next week, I will remove it from the classifieds and be happy with what I have.

    Hello Jorge,

    Totally understand that.

    For me, last week I was on the verge of getting back into at least one pro Canon body—just for the new 17 TS-E (the one that has the tilt axis independently adjustable from the shift one). But then there's the processing issues and color consistency across Nikon and Canon shot together.

    In the end I stayed with the two Nikon bodies I use, but that 17 sure is a step up for Canon. Good luck.

    Did you not play with the Zeiss ZS 25 f:/2.8, 35 f:/2 or 50 f:/1.4?. All M42 mount with an adapter to tide you over until Sony release new ZA Zeiss.

    Anyhow, best of luck with your sale,
    A7II, FE 35, 55 C/Y 18, 28, 85, 100, 28-85
