Well... that escalated quickly

I got the R6 about 3 weeks ago . I instantly loved the camera and like it more the more i shoot with it which so far amounted to about only 300 photos. After some pixel peeping with kit lens and testing the AF and high iso I’m actually so impressed ( except the cheap plasticky built as I expressed before) that I got rid of my Z6 and 3 expensive lenses . Traded all the nikon stuff for the monster 28-70 plus 1400$ in my pocket. I did loose some money in the process trading with the guy I know and did business with few times before who buys and sells gear as a hobby... but It wasn’t that bad and I got very reasonable deal dictated by current average second hand prices. #YOLO 😂

The 70-200 was already on order. Originally wanted the 15-35 but I hardly shoot wider then 24 anyway and will use this lens much more.
it is a BEAST. Totally ridiculous ... not just very fat but HEAVY. The pictures just don’t do it justice. You will definitely have the holy $.!@ moment seeing and holding it in person first time.
70-200 came tonight with ups box looking like it came thru warzone but the lens seems ok so far. Its crazy that 70-200 2.8 feels like a small and light lens now lol.
pictures to follow...

here are the 2 side by side for comparison....

That is the 77mm “small” cap next the the 95mm 😂
