i dream of tessar*
|Source : Google|
i spent too much time surfing and reading about the 'delicious' 16-70mm f4 ZA last night. apparently the lens already arrived our shore, and the only copy that i found so far, available at YLCamera bench. and it is at a discounted price vs. RRP.
it is a zeiss with a fixed f4 (not much), hence, explain the 'legs and arms' price tag. i saw few pictures taken with the lens, and i realized that i've been missing the wonderful colour of T*coating, all of this while. i mean, being a loyal and avid orange/alphanatics, not having at a zeiss seems an odd. i was close to get the 16-80mm back when i bought the 16-105mm DT.
with my plan to bring the only or all-rounder lens for my nex 7 for my upcoming trip, the arrival of this lens may be able to answer my 'needs'. but the price, ermm...
if it'll be the ultimate lens for my nex system, i thought, may be i should 'get rid' the other lens that i may not be using much once i have the 16-70mm - the pancake, the kit and the sigma. shashinki offers the platform to sell the 2nd hand items, and perhaps if all of these 3 lens sold, i will be able to cover some 'losses' when i decide to buy the 16-70mm.
things went for a while, and i almost put an order for the lens.
and the un-decided situation, evolved into a dream for me. my argument with myself to buy or not to buy, staged in my rem-cycle, like a Billy Elliot broadway, and i was almost sure that i bought it, before the Minions started bugging me with the Banana song.
period. it was only a dream.
