What will be specs of 28-70mm f4 FF lens for A7 and A7r?
Oct 8, 2013

Size, price and is it a G lens? Any info on design or features would be interesting and appreciated.

Thank you.

P.S. The reason I'm asking is that it appears that this lens will be a kit lens and most probably will be a main walk-around lens for many (at least initially). If I buy A7 (which I'm leaning to) this lens will be my 1st choice (only as a kit).

P.P.S This is what I know so far: this lens is going to be light and focusing group is going to be made move fast for fast video focusing (will this mean faster AF for stills as well?). F4 should keep it quite small for FF lens and range is good for keeping lens small. I really hope that it will be small, light and with fast and accurate AF. Also, I hope that given that it is not fast zoom like f2.8, but rather f4 - it could be more simple design and thus more easy to make it perfect optically.

What do you think guys?
