  1. Depreciating so quickly, you will get a steal...I'll keep mine!
  2. Thank you for your insight!! I took the plunge! I await arrival... What glass are pairing it with?
  3. Has anyone traded up to the Sony a7RM4 from the Sony a7RM3? If so, what is your pros and cons of doing so? Any insight in: IQ, ergonomics, file/data handling & buffering, and focus speed and accuracy, low-light and high-ISO noise Thank you in advance!!
  4. Yes, it is best when you can keep the hooded unreversed. I find it better than the supplied hood, but still not perfect.
  5. It is a great lens, and as you know paired with either teleconverter (and I've seen some folks using both simultaneously with an extension tube) provide excellent image quality! I usually carry it paired with the Sony a9, and carry the a7M3 paired with the 100-400. Often the 100-400 gets the 1.4x, and the 2.0x goes in a pocket to swap. I have also used the a9 into APS-C mode for more reach. I use a Think Tank Glass Taxi, to lug the lens along with the hood reversed, and I had to get a LensCoat Hoodie which allows for a better fit than the Sony provided velcro hood. I normally use a BlackRapid strap to carry the rig, but I just picked up an Arca Swiss strap from Kirk that I am yet to try.
  6. The Eagle has landed... After some panic set in when the shipper switched from FedEx, where I was having the lens held, to UPS. A redirection to a UPS Store, was required, then finally the lens arrived! After a quick change of the tripod foot to the Wimberly and wrapping in a LensCoat, we were ready to go. Field reactions to follow...
  7. I don't have an answer to the weight question. I purchased the Wimberley AP-609 from B&H for $79.00. It does lower the profile nominally.
  8. I have been making weekly inquiries as to the ETA of the lens. I do so each Thursday afternoon. I was mentally reminding myself that I had to get an update tomorrow earlier today. Nonetheless, shortly thereafter, unless there is a very cruel person at Crutchfield, my copy of the lens has shipped. I eagerly await its arrival.
  9. Good to know, and that matches well with the 10-week timeline you originally noted. I'm sure you cannot wait for delivery. Keep me posted, as I will as well. Here's to hoping you get delivery inside the 10-weeks!
  10. Unfortunately, not. I do check-in weekly (each Thursday) and have gotten various indescript responses. The latest: I do not have the 70-200 2.8 E-mount, but I do have the A-mount version. I often carry around a well worn Minolta AF 80-200mm F2.8 HS APO G (screw drive) lens that produces amazing colors and nice separation. The focus is not as snappy as the newer lenses, but it is built like a tank and the results are great for a lens that is over 30 years old.
  11. I share your hesitation, concerns and now heavy anticipation. I have a Sony a9, but do not have a Sony a7RIII (I do have the predecessor). and a Sony a7M3. I can't wait to be able to get out and shoot with the lens.
  12. Thank you, I'm interested to see if there is any true discernible pattern based upon location and retailer.
  13. Thank you 2xbass for the response. This is very helpful. Do you mind sharing from which retailer you decided to order? I ordered from Crutchfield on January 4, 2019. For those interested, I will share updates on the process as it progresses.
  14. Is there any ETA for shipments of the Sony FE 400 mm f/2.8 GM OSS (SEL400f28GM)? Sony's website indicates that online retailers B&H, Crutchfield, Bedford, & Focus have "Preorder "availability, while Adorama denotes, "Backorder". Any insight would be greatly appreciated.
