    The Sony 18-135 is back on sale for $498 so I sold my Sony 18-105 PZ and picked it up. I haven't had much of an opportunity to test it yet but I already appreciate that it's smaller and lighter while having a touch more zoom. I'll try to get some photos and post them up.

    Do you know how long it's on sale for? I'm renting both the 16-70mm Zeiss and the 18-135 this week. I shot with both yesterday and so far both are way better than the kit 16-50PZ (obviously). I need to shoot more with the 18-135 but my initial impression is that it's good enough that it's not worth the extra $$ for the Zeiss.

    Not sure how long, but it's on sale through Sony, so all retailers.

    Has anyone shot with the 18-135 on one of the full-frame bodies in crop mode? I'm thinking of getting the A7iii, but I need a lighter combo to take on my MTB trips. Right now I've got the M50 and the 18-150, which is tiny and works well. I think an A7iii plus the 18-135 would be great... I don't need huge files since they're only posted online, so the 10-12MP crop effect would be fine. Just wondering about compatibility and if there are any compromises that I'm not thinking of.

    Ooohhhhh a7iii.... That would be sweet.

    Have you handled the body before? Def a tad bigger than my a6500. For biking, why not consider a crop body? I'd think the auto focus is a tad nicer vs your m50. PQ is prbly a toss up depending on your glass.

    Although I love the idea of owning an a7iii at some point, the convenience of having the smaller body (especially for biking) is too hard to pass up IMO.

    I'll prbly still get an a7iii

    A7iii AF is beyond description. Full frame pictures blown up are insanely sharp.

    For pocketable cameras I use a RX100. For my SLR - an A7ii (don't have the bling power of smokan). I had considered the A6*000 series but if I wanted an interchangeable lens camera my personal preference was to go whole hog.

    I use the A7ii with a Sony 24-105mm, Sony 50mm, and a Canon 70-200 with adapter (the last one rarely). So cannot comment on how the non full-frame Emounts work

    Right now I've got the Canon M50 and I just sold the 6D (full frame)... because I want one camera, not multiple. That said, I don't want a crop camera because I want full-frame for vacations and other personal stuff. And then I want the size/weight to be manageable for my CE trips. My lens lineup would look something like:

    Sony 18-135
    Sony FE 24-70 f/4
    Canon 70-200 f/4 IS w/ adapter
    And then a couple of primes TBD

    Thread bump. How do you like the Canon 70-200 on the A7iii? I just pulled the trigger and since I already have the 70-200 f/4 IS, I'm going to use it for a while with the MC-11 instead of splurging for Sony glass. Most of my shots with that lens will likely be landscapes or portraits so I'm not too concerned with AF speed, but I'm curious to hear your experience so far.

    I'm using the 70-200 the same way. Ie shooting far away slow moving or still objects. It's not seeing much use as the Sony 24-105 is so good. But it's fun to have around and old glass so owes me nothing
