This lens does interest me. Biggest reason is its low weight. And then there is the focal length range.

As far as light goes:

>. Excepting IR, the first requirement for photography is light. Sure, I love shooting in low (up to 3 hands high) direct sunlight. But I also like shooting in rain. We cannot always have abundant or "sufficient" light.

>. I am finding that a lot of my shots were taken at ISO 25600 (with my Z8). Both the Z8 and D850 focus very fast..... even in low light.

In post I can effectively convert and denoise, (and sharpen if desired).

I did not notice this lens until today. Must keep looking at it more now.

Still thinking about the 100-400 S too.

I'm coming to a conclusion that for me anything below 400mm this lens will do. Not necessarily a bird lens because of the f/8 aperture. But great as a wildlife with environment. Sharpness is very good. It's pretty close to Sony 100-400 at 400mm. I know it's hard to accept. But the AF accuracy suffers sometimes may be because of f/8. Anyhow couple of samples wide open
