Night shots, 35mm F2.8 -or- 24-70 OIS F4?
2

I'm traveling soon and planning my gear, would like to ask the more experienced with night shots amongst us, which of the two lens spec is better for night shots in general, both family and cityscape, handheld?

I love the size and the sharpness of the 35mm FE F2.8 but wider could be nice and 24-70 FE for now is the only choice from Sony. It has OIS which could be good but also a stop slower, and worse is it's much bigger which is making me think twice.

So if the 2.8 is actually good choice already or similar then I wouldn't have to take the bigger 24-70. So not specific to these lens, just lens spec in general, what would be your choice?

Some samples from the 35.
