What are people's thoughts on long prime (135/200) lenses for A7/R
Nov 24, 2013

From my days with m43,  nex-7 and film rangefinders I have a decent selection of leica mount glass for use with the A7r which turned up at the weekend. I also have a lot of large nikon primes. One thing that I seem to be missing in my collection is anything over 90mm at a sensible(small) size/weight.  My nikon 135 and 180 seem ridiculously big and heavy on the nex.  This was never an issue with the nex7 due to crop factor.   I have been thinking of something like the Konica hexanon 200mm f4, but I havent got on with f4 teles in the past, they also have some interesting i35s. Not really tempted by Leica 135s as the f4s seem too slow and the 2.8 too heavy.

Anyone had had any other thoughts or suggestions?
