sony 16-70 F4 a mount lens

i know the FE 24-70 f4 is on its way very soon but is it worth looking at the 16-70 f4 a mount?

i know its an APS-C sensor so itll cut my a7r in half regarding image resolution but i tested the lens out briefly yesterday and was shockingly surprised with its range and image quality. however the test was brief... maybe 5 mins at most.

although it doesnt take full advantage of the MP of my a7r.... i fell in love with the focal range (effectively somewhere around 24-85 which gives slightly more reach than the expected 24-70)... then i started thinking about how much i really would be sacrificing if i purchased this lens for an everyday on the go lens?

has anybody put this lens through the paces regarding IQ? ive read reviews on both sides of the fence and havent found ANY great video reviews on it.

thoughts?
