    I think for the moment the 24/70 will do almost 90% of everything for me, the 135 I'm hoping will be my prime portrait lens on FF. I can't quite stretch to the 85 1.4 but I may get some milage out of a 50 or 58 Rokkor with a conversion, it could be a killer lens on the a900 for me.

    Anyway, a few days to wait before the packages start to arrive, plenty of reading to be done on the system.

    Thanks for your help
    HI Eoin
    Don't forget them in the future - they'll match most deals, and are always helpful.
    I only glanced through the (very slim) instruction book once - everything else seems pretty obvious, quite a tribute really.

    Just this guy you know

    Picked up mine yesterday + the 24-70 CZ ( I will be taking delivery of the 135 CZ + a MF screen at the end of next week). I am Waiting for an opportunity to do some real shooting (as opposed to photographs my shoe laces under the kitchen light) but work is going to be stifling this week.

    I agree with Jono, I have been scrolling the menus left and right thinking "that's it", so nice and simple.

    Hi guys,
    I just bought ZA 85/1.4 for my A900
    Here is a pic of ZA 85/1.4 with ZF 85/1.4





    So far i'm kind of confused with ZA 85/1.4
    This lens is super sharp @F1.4 at close distance! however, at long distance the lens is not too sharp.
    Is this normal???
    A sample from A900 + ZA 85/1.4 @F1.4


    It's really sharp...!
    Leica M9 | SE 18 | Lux 24 | Lux 50 | ZM 35 | Nikon D700 | 35/1.8 | 45 PC-E | 50/1.4 | 70-200 VR II | SB 800+600 |SF 58|

    Mine is as sharp at close range as it is at infinity. Try to manually focus to see if the AF is a bit off at infinity.

    One of my first photos with the A900 and Zeiss 24-70. A friend just opened a new Lebanese restaurant in Bangkok so I'm helping him with free photos for the menu. Using available light and reflector.



    Chicken Kebabs anyone?
