If the 200-500 turns out to be any where near as good as my 70-200 f/4, then I will definitely be dumping my tamron 150-600 and picking up the 200-500. Can't wait to see how it performs. f/5.6 might be tough in a few situations but, I can live with that.
Will probably hang on to my existing 24-70, but I am interested to see if edge sharpness improves. It would have to be a big improvement to push me into spending that much. Esp since I don't really need the VR that much (landscape on tripod mostly for me). So guessing I'll wind up passing on this one, at least for time being.
On the 24 f/1.8... really don't need f/1.8 in that focal-length. But the 20 f/1.8 I have is quite good. If this one turns out to significantly beat my existing 24-70 at 24... just might might spring for it.
All in all, IMHO some exciting new lenses here. Very, very pleased to see this. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that these new guys won't have a lot of QA problems and variation...
jfw: Lightroom Cloud probably isn't far behind... any one know if Capture One can read Lightroom XMP sidecars and wind up with a good result?
You just might be right BJL... but still would like to know the answer to my Capture One question... haven't found a good answer on the web yet. Cheers.
