It's arrived :-)

The lens arrived this morning, just before Lightroom was automatically updated with the lens profile

My A7Rii has older firmware (3.3) and doesn't apply corrections in camera. According to some articles, the latest firmware should solve that issue.

Initial 'test' shots suggest all is well. It's certainly very sharp, at least in the centre, and compares favourably with my wider primes even at the edges. Distortion is quite pronounced but that was expected.

I'll enjoy exploring the capabilities of the lens over the coming days/weeks/months. I'll need some time to practice wide angle photography which is well outside of my comfort zone. At least now I have a lens that I feel worthy of spending the time to master!

Thank you to everyone who contributed to this thread
