Ok let me start. What all around lens would you buy for a walk around? Landscape, buildings, portrait, and a half decent zoom with out any image loss as I am thinking of buying something within my budget of 700.00 to 900.00. I have the A6000

I'll be getting a 55mm 1.8 for this very purpose. Not a zoom, but I intend to shoot all primes anyways.

if you don't mind prime lenses, sony 35mm f1.8. For zoom though, you'll have to find something else.
night and landscape go for rokinon 12mm f2 or sigma 16mm 1.4

Now waiting for DJI Ronin-S to be in stock.

Btw for those new to getting A7/A9, get the 128gb or more SD card. I cheaped out by getting 64gb cards and they fill up too quickly with video/burst mode.

Pretty sure Vistek has them and just sitting.

Henry's has yet to get them.

I'm still waiting on my order from Adorama. They did shave off a $100 for me due to the wait.

Merging may be a good idea but is funny, no one used that thread in a long time.

LoL, should I ask Mods to merge?

Anyone on here have the Sigma 30mm f/2.8 EX DN for E-mount? I have one, and bought the hood for it, but the hood expects some kind of bayonet mount attachment and the lens has none. I'm wondering if my lens (which I bought second-hand) is missing a part or something.

I have it and I bought it new. It doesn't have any kind of bayonet mount, it is screw mount.

Thanks. I heard back from Sigma headquarters that there are two versions of this lens -- the 30mm f/2.8 EX DN and the 30mm f/2.8 EX DN Art, and the Art has a bayonet hood mount while the non-Art does not.

Hopefully I can return the hood! (it was pricey). The front element seems very close to the front of the lens, so it'd likely benefit from use of a hood.

Yea, they dropped the EX in the naming for the revision. You can see on the picture of the 30mm F2.8 DN that it has a bayonet system for the hood.
I bought a vent hood for mine from Fotodiox. Lens cover still work with it and it doesn't show vignetting.

i have the a5000 with kit and am debating if I should get the rokinon 12mm. Mainly shooting landscape and architecture.
