    24-70 F2.8 lens

    Has anyone seen this lens or tried it? Website says it comes out on February. I think this might be the lens that would win me over. I'm concerned about how big it will be.

    If you're referring to the ZFE 24-70 that's supposed to be released in February it's a f/4 lens for sure.

    I see
    Both the Sony and Amazon page says max aperture is 2.8, which is why I was excited.. I guess it's not

    The Zeiss/Sony 24-70/2,8 is for Sony A mount, but can be used on A7R via an adapter.

    Yeah but that lens has been out a while. I believe he's referring to the new FE mount 24-70 that will be released in February and it's a f/4 lens.

    No, there's a 28-70 kit lens (I think F3.5-5.6) that was released with the A7 but is available separately in some countries. I have tried it on the A7R and it gives acceptable results for its design and price point. The 24-70 is an F4 and due early next year.
