Tried it out now. They have none mounted on camera. Just one behind glass and I got to try it on my camera as well as the new 85. First impression was nothing special from looking at the back of the camera but the inside of the Sony show room is nothing special anyway...

AF was nice and fast though and absolutely silent. Same goes for the new 85.

Kind of hard justifying the purchase of this new 100 when I already have the 90G macro and the Leica 90AA though. If only I could borrow/rent one and try it outside. It's

I haven't used any stf lens, but looking at pictures, I have always felt that a natural environment/background makes these lenses shine. City lights? Not so much. When I tried out the 90 2.8 Macro at that Sony Store, I wasn't too impressed with the display/items they let you photograph. Granted the Canon and Nikon in Ginza showrooms are nothing to write home about either, but at least the Nikon showroom in Shinjuku offers a very nice view and in the Canon showroom in Shinagawa they offered me to take an expensive lens outside.

Tax free would be 155,000 yen. Still on the high side for such a niche lens. Easy for me to resist, which is good, after spending 2 weeks in Japan, eating like a pig every day

I'll let this one go for now and give it another try when back home. There I can take it out for a spin from my local camera store when Spring finally starts hitting the streets of Stockholm.

Yesssssss! Just got a call from my dealer and my 100mm STF is shipping today. Should have it in a couple days. Just in time for an engagement shoot this weekend.

Ken, I would love to see a comparison between this and the (in my book) bokeh-machine, the 85mm GM at wide open.

You can count on it. Since I have two A7RII's I can shoot back to back.

I may throw my 135mm f1.8 ZA in the mix too if I can borrow a friend's A7RII.

Order just placed for the 85. Excited to have a second native lens. I picked up the 28mm f/2 at the same time as the A7R2, taking advantage of the trade-in through BH. Silly good lens for what I ultimately paid for it. I've used my Nikon 85mm 1.8 G on the A7R2 with a dumb adapter and the results have been gorgeous. Really looking forward to this : )

Weather has been shitty today but I hope to get out this evening for some pictures... Here's a comparison of the size difference with the GM85 and 135 1.8... (and this shot was taken with a 50mm f1.0)
