Hey guys, I'm upgrading to the full frame mirrorless Sony A7iii. I've been debating what lenses to get. I currently mainly use a 16-80mm and 70-200mm on an aps-c camera. I shoot a variety of subjects, mainly landscapes and cityscapes, but also some events and some portrait shots. So here's my thinking. The Sony 24-70mm f2.8 G Master is a great lens, but £2,100 and 950g so really expensive and the camera would be front heavy. So Tamron has just bought out a 28-75mm f2.8 for £800. It's not as wide as the Sony, but considerably cheaper and lighter at 550g. So I thought I'd go for this and the Sony F4 70-200mm. Anyway..... I was just talking to a fellow photographer (btw a lot more professional than me) and he says his go to lens is the Nikon 24-120mm. Ok. So I looked at the Sony equivalent: 24-105mm F4 £1,200 650g. I thought the image quality wouldn't be so good for such a zoom range, but apparently it is and the bokeh is ok. The ISO is so good on the latest cameras that you can boost it to compensate for slower lenses without noticeable noise. So..... Do I get the 28-75 and 70-200, or just the 24-105mm (which would mean I probably don't change lens so often)???? Decisions decisions!!! Has anyone got any thoughts? Maybe an entirely different suggestion even! Stephen
