I think this sets a record for me on camera gear. I ordered the FE 24-70mm F4 OSS and it finally arrived today at 1:15PM. I dropped it back to FedEx at 3:15PM!!

I knew it was a bad idea to pre-order just on expectation. I really got caught up in the positive reviews for the FE35 and FE55 and placed the order site and review unseen. I won't be making that mistake again.

At $1200, this lens should be spot on for the entire focal range, not just from 28-60 and it's not fast enough. Shame because Sony had such a good start with the other 2 Zeiss branded FE lens

I bought a GM1 and returned it the same day.

Was my purchase mistake worth telling the world? Probably not.

i thought this was a camera gear forum, rather than a consumer mistake forum.

BTW mine performs as well as the Canon 24-70/4 and 24-105/4 at 24mmm
