I like to think that my approach to the 28-70G would be the same -
wait to see what Zeiss come up with - but I'm not sure I could
resist if I found one for a good price.

The 28-70G is a little tougher ... while the 17-35 really shines on
FF and you don't get a lot for your money on APS-C, AF and close
focussing are both reasonable. The 28-70 offers high IQ, nice
build, and doesn't extend when zooming, but significant
disadvantages in AF performance (and MF ring feel) and close
focussing. So it or a cheaper lens like the 28-75D could be a
better choice depending on what you're shooting.

I will probably trade mine for the new SONY 24-70/2.8 G when it's out..although I think the AF performance is not that bad...
