well you can always rent t o try and see what you like with your style of shooting
i did with a 16-80cz this summer and now i have my own (GF got it for me today )

it could be the best blend of zoom range and F speed while still keeping IQ up that said i here good things of the 16-105 but i wanted a bit faster lens

now that i have this im looking at the tamron 70-300 USD and hopping that sony down the road makes a FF lens that woudl work as a middle range zoom on the crop cams (liek the older "handshake" lens )

the kids football and soccer coudl most days be covered by 40-160 F4 depending on where i set up on the fields
