I think this sets a record for me on camera gear. I ordered the FE 24-70mm F4 OSS and it finally arrived today at 1:15PM. I dropped it back to FedEx at 3:15PM!!

I knew it was a bad idea to pre-order just on expectation. I really got caught up in the positive reviews for the FE35 and FE55 and placed the order site and review unseen. I won't be making that mistake again.

At $1200, this lens should be spot on for the entire focal range, not just from 28-60 and it's not fast enough. Shame because Sony had such a good start with the other 2 Zeiss branded FE lens

From most users owning these as well the reviews, I have realized they are not entirely happy. Of course its not a prime but it makes you realize what a good value the 28-70 kit lens provides.

I am just beginning to use the FE2870 and was considering getting the 24-70 but looks like the 28-70 holds much better value at $400 compared to the $1200 for the 24-70.

See some of my FE28-70 photos here, I find it quite capable
