Awesome photos, awesome quality. Contrast, sharpness, zero hazing, no CA, etc.

I *think* that technically I can match that using my LA-EA2 + Tamron 17-50 F/2.8 lens, but I hate walking around with that because it doesn't have the stabilization obviously, and it's very bulky.... But pure hardcore quality wise, it'll match it (except for range obviously).

It *kind* of makes me miss my SLT now, which I just unloaded. It's A6000 + A3000 now... I'm aiming for the 18-105... crossing my fingers it's going to be good....

Thanks for the kind words.

I'm not a big fan of using adaptors especially for the A6000 where it will negate the speed of its focusing system.

I have the Canon 24-105/4 L IS and the Zeiss is very similar to its IQ and a lot of wedding pro photographers shoot with that Canon lens. I love to see a shoot-off between a 5DMKIII + Sigma 24-105/4 ART and my combo as I heard good things about the Sigma.

I've seen some superb shots from the 18-105G so I look forward to see your pictures with it.
