comment Low weight photography bag recomendation
@DanWolfgang hehe. you can do it if you unmount the 200mm and put it into the upper department ). and it's not a lens case, but a 5-lens backpack

comment Is there anything in medium format systems which can beat pro-level 35mm digital with fast lenses in low light?
@StanRogers it's not just the ISO. If all things were equal, I'd shoot at lowest iso available, with the lens open as wide as possible. The stuff that I read basically says that medium format lenses do let more light through, but that that light has to be distributed around a large sensor, so in terms of light transmition, f/2 on medium format equals f/2 on 35mm sensor. My question is: let's say we are taking pictures with 100mm f/2 with 35mm sensor vs medium format. Will the two require the same exposure times to get the same picture if everything else is the same?

comment Compare Canon 16-35mm II and 14mm II in terms of image quality
@MichaelClark using Zeiss doesn't make much sense if you're Nikon shooter, but if I intend to use it on Canon body, Zeiss will give me focus confirmation on autofocus points, which is actually really helpful! It really sucks though that Nikon has proper wide angle lenses and Canon doesn't

comment Compare Canon 16-35mm II and 14mm II in terms of image quality
The thing is - I shoot most of my lenses wide open most of the time (especially that I'll need this lens to work inside the buildings). And at f2.8 Zeiss clearly outperforms the two other lenses across the field, and 14mm prime is the worst everywhere except in the center. Anyway, this is a better answer to my question, I'm awarding the answer to you. Thanks!

actually, if I want to have to live with another manual focus lens, I'll probably go for the Zeiss 15mm instead )

Sometimes there are moments where I regred that I'm not a Nikon shooter. This is one of them ). Looks like a really nice lens! Thanks for the suggestion

renting would be really nice. but they don't rent those lenses where I live. that's why I'm asking )

comment How important is a fast aperture in a wide angle lens?
I'd say, wide aperture is always important
