    It’s probably because I cut and pasted the etx.  As long as it doesn’t show up elsewhere we will not worry about it.

    I find that the Sony GM lenses to be ideal.  I have few primes that are useful when I know they can be used.  My kit that sits in a ThinkTank Airport Security bag roller is the a7r iv and a1.  In the kit id 12-24mm, 24-70mm GN, 16-35mm, 100-400mm.  I also have the 200-600mm lens and the 70-200mm lens.  I can readapt the kit based on what I anticipate shooting.  I do have a number of primes and frankly, it is hard to see any differences when I use just primes.  The GM zooms are really good and the kit I have gives me two great cameras and lens coverage fro 12-600mm.  I can always add the 1.4 or 2 x extender if needed.

    My kit a1, a7riv, 100-400mm, 24-70, 12-24mm, 16-35.

    I visited this place a few times.  From the days when real things were being invented.
