A short break in my LA-EA2 review.
Having received the lens yesterday, I had a few moments of clarity. 1) 16-50 is NOT the range I need. It’s way too wide for me, a 28 or 24 to 70 or 75 is way more useful for what I shoot. 2) 2.8 is still not bright enough for indoor use without flash, especially once you account for the light loss that goes with the SLT tech in the LA-EA2, making it more an actual 3.2 as far as light gathering goes (the 2.8 DOF capability is maintained, though).
All in all it’s screaming at me to keep it. I’ll take it for a spin at the stables on Wednesday and see what happens. In the meanwhile if you’re debating getting one and it’s in your budget, I can only testify it’s a very lovable piece of glass 🙂
