I think the slower aperture might eliminate it for some people, but IIRC it's pretty good wide open so realistically that's better than a 2.8 that doesn't sharpen up until it's stopped down a couple of stops.

Show us some footage already!!  :) 

I seem to recall that you were one of those people ;)

The thing with this is that of course this is my lens and I've obviously had it on a bunch of cameras so I'm familiar with how it looks so it was a bit wow how much new wow there was.

I'm not talking about wow when bringing it in to Lightroom and pixel peeping etc either but wow as in immediately just seeing it on the rear LCD.

It was very hot though so we could have just been hallucinating.

I often look at the 4 or 5 cameras in my bag and think “this cost me far too much and they’re all the same”. Then I have a cup of tea and try to forget about it. Yes it’s true, the full frame mar

We are both en route to an undisclosed European location to do some of that with the added bonus of the P6K being involved. Well he's already there and I'm en route in a car that couldn't be carr

Well, after reviewing the evidence, apparently I was!  LOL.

I second @kaylees suggestion of a vlog...  I think the recipe for a good vlog is 1) being interesting and 2) having hijinks.  I haven't met either of you, but I'm willing to say you've likely got both!

omg I WISH u had. next time pls do that and include thai food with commentary 

If you took out all of the libellous remarks, the conversation would pretty much have just ended up with "does this come with rice?" and "can we have the bill please".

If its any consolation, there is a thread on here somewhere where someone asks if anyone owns the 35-70mm and I replied saying that I regretted not buying it as I'd gone for the wider range of the 28-85mm instead.

However, I made that statement a good six months after I'd actually, erm, bought the 35-70mm and clearly completely forgetting I'd done so !

Not that I have an addiction or anything.

I'm not so sure about that.

If dour cynicism ever becomes a key driver of the YouTube algorithm then we might have a chance.

HA! I've been there too. Bought something then completely forgotten you'd bought it. Happens far more often than I'd care to admit. 

Gets even worse when you buy it a SECOND TIME, because you want it, and thought you didn't have it.....

Cynical British Guys Complaining About Cameras is a great vlog waiting to happen. its should take like 3 episodes before the goal of the first episode is reached, u kno? im entertained already @BTM_Pix @Andrew Reid

We'll make sure we give you a heads up when the first epsiode of 'Apertureholics Anonymous' is available then.

I'm hoping we can re-enact the camera shop incident from this most recent trip as it really did set the benchmark for what can happen when you have lens choice overload.

Good job the shop owner in Barcelona was an honest fellow, he could have played it to his advantage!

All the F1 stuff is done, and I've got race car fuel all over me... I am a bit combustable and face has gone red. That's what happens I guess when you have 150 laps each from 22 cars circling you for 3 days.

The GFX 100 is worth its weight in repeat lens purchases.

At least I can now stop buying cameras!

It's the end-game*

* For  6 months!

Looks like a good option for the GFX 100.

Most 85mm full frame lenses do cover, but surprised even the anamorphic will work.

Now if only Fuji would give us the 4:3 aspect ratio in video mode.
