See my previous post on my recent hike but the smoke that forced me to leave two days later.
I’ve been distracted by catch-up stuff at home (backups, a macOS crash on my Mac Pro, some server maintenance), but I intend to show some examples from hiking soon.
I never did get to evaluate the Sony FE 12-24mm f/2.8 GM for general purpose hiking use last year (due to my infirmity), but I can now say that the 12-24/2.8 GM is a fabulously useful lens for hiking, offering not only a super-wide end at 12-14mm (beating out every other mirrorless), but rivals or outperforms all prime lenses in its range that I have tested.
