Sony FE 28-135mm f4 G PZ OSS Lens - £1,659 after cash back @ Amazon

15
Found 23rd Oct
Amazon just discounted this lens by £170 to £1,829 - typically retails at £1,999.

Potentially an anomaly, as Sony winter cash back is a further £170 - taking this down to £1,659. By far the cheapest this lens has ever been available from a UK stockist, and cheaper than any grey importers.

Currently out of stock, but due back in within a few days.

I think it's the same on the A7, price matching another site's price quoting the price with the cashback discount. I've wondered if this lens might somehow be related in optical design to the old Minolta 28-135mm (often referred to as "secret handshake" ).

what am I missing, seems very expensive for only f4?

a second hand rx1 would be a better bet

my comments are not uninformed, they are different to yours but that imo is a good thing

what do you want me to say about the deal?
lowest ever price = hot
bit of a niche lens though so almost certainly will go cold

that's more useful. To me this lens is too expensive when compared against nikon/canon.

Maybe you could also comment on the other thread as to why you think cropping on an rx1 is a poor idea.

ah you compare this lens against the whole of canon and nikon as a company - ace
as for the other thread - its obvious

I do compare the value of lenses from one system to another; but it seems you don't. guess you must have so much money its not an issue.

Re cropping; do you understand that an rx1 is much higher resolution than the rx100? So far your comments haven't shown any understanding of the issues.

how can you compare a lens against a system? you need to compare a lens against a lens
which lenses did you use to compare with?

re cropping 24mp vs 20mp so obviously that makes it the best - thanks for the education

Nikon / canon do 2.8 max aperture zooms for this money.

And ok I see you haven't understood that the effective resolution of the rx1 is above the rx100; it has much bigger pixels as it is a ff sensor.

nono, i didn't ask for generalities - which lenses are you comparing this one with?

i am well aware of effective resolution though i didn't think you were... seeing as the point obviously doesn't change the fact that cropping an rx1 isn't equivalent (or better as you say) to using a rx100-V

I believe it will be quite a bit better as the sensor is so much bigger in the rx1.

yes we know that but you didnt back it up - just repeated what you already said
even if it was true it doesn't really change anything

thanks for the lens comparison, guess you decided to stop drawing attention to that irrelevant assumption
