I gotcha...you don't want wider for landscapes? Im a big fan of a 14mm prime and a 16-35. Good luck with the switch, I'm certain you won't be disappointed.:thumbsup:Basically it's because I want to go wider and I seriously haven't used it in almost 6 months. It's big, heavy, and cumbersome to lug around to the point that I hate bringing it places. It definitely has its uses but at this point, I don't have a purpose for it. I can snag a Zeiss Batis 20mm for about the value of the 70-200 and have one of the best wide primes in the world. If the lens doesn't sell, I'll keep it.
I have someone who wants to trade my 70-200 for 24mm 1.4L prime. Good trade?I gotcha...you don't want wider for landscapes? Im a big fan of a 14mm prime and a 16-35. Good luck with the switch, I'm certain you won't be disappointed.:thumbsup:
Well, you're asking me personally, so I'm going to give you my opinion as if someone was offering me this trade....dollar wise, the 24mm is a $1450 lens. The 24-70 is an $1800 lens and the 70-200 2.8 non IS is a $1250 lens....all are current BH prices...so financially, you're making out well. However, IMHO of course, 24mm is good for general vacation range, but only when it's attached to a zoom. It isn't wide enough for many European museums and such, it doesn't create grand landscapes (IMHO) and it's kind of a very limiting option. Furthermore, it's not small....and at 24mm, you'll never shoot wide open because, well.....you just dont. I never shoot my wides below F8, I want maximum sharpness. The 70-200 obviously has limited use, but it does provide shots that no current sony lens can give you, and it does make for some incredible portraits. Landscapes are often amazing as well with the compression of a 70-200....so, IF you are going to be using a canon lens on the a7r2 body, and you are going to trade, I'd want to trade it for a 24-70 f2.8, which is a FANTASTIC lens, and gives you excellent vacation range, great bokeh when you want it, and great landscapes when you want that as well. Sadly sony doesn't yet have a quality zoom at any range, so if you want a good zoom, you'll have to stick with Canon...but the good news is, under around 140mm, Canon zooms work incredibly well on the latest metabones and the a7r2...at 200mm+, it starts to hunt on subjects that are really close.I have someone who wants to trade my 70-200 for 24mm 1.4L prime. Good trade?
Also, while I like wide, I don't like super wide. My ideal sweet spot is 20-30mm on a FF body.
Lol trust me the only thing I can offer is an extremely low ball offer that isn't worth the time. Struggles of college^ We can work out a good price for you if you want.
Decided to keep the 70-200 and run with an adapter. Even though I don't use it a ton now, it's a useful lens to have and I know a day will come that I really really wish I had it.
