    The Minolta 28-75 2.8 was pretty light.

    No, the 28-75 isn't macro, but then, the 28-135 is macro on the wide end (which some find less useful).

    More importantly, I've never heard the 28-135mm be called "light" before, either. ;-)

    Maybe consider a 17-50mm 2.8 Tamron. I hear it gets good marks, and would be less overlap with the 28-135mm. Not sure about its MFD. I have the 28-75 and like it.

    The Sony 28-75 f/2.8 is light compared to the Zeiss and weighs in at around 550gms if I recall. That is REALLY light for a Full-frame with a constant f/2.8 aperture and the range it provides.
    A900 with a few lenses, flashes etc.
