2019 Lens Wishlist
2

List 3 lenses you would actually buy that aren't currently for sale, in decreasing order of importance

  1. Sigma 24-70 2.8 ART FE- I'm mulling saving my pennies for a used GM, but I've finally relented to the usefulness of a 2.8 standard. At ~$1300 or so I'd have no qualms picking one of these up. I think the Tamron 24-70 is better but I don't see them stepping on the 28-75's toes in FE mount.
  2. Sigma 40mm F/2 Contemporary- 40mm is my favorite focal length, but all the options available in FE are compromised in some way. Furthermore I think top end prime coverage is largely complete; FE system is long overdue for a set of good, affordable, light weight midrange lenses. If someone could make a set of primes and zooms for under $500/500g- 24/2, 40/2, 55/2, 85/2, 135/2.8, 18-35/4, 24-85/4, 70-200/4 possibly- I think they'd do very well
  3. Tamron 70-210 F/4- A decent compromise for a tele. F/4 is OK for portraits and light enough for travel. I'd get more use out of this than an F/2.8
