Firstly Canon has stable work horse lenses, 24-70I, II, 70-200 I, II, non-ISO, F4IS, 16-35, 50L, 24L, 85L, 100L; Sony simply cannot compete against this complete line.

Sony has all these lenses covered

Actually Sony doesnt.

24-70 2.8 zeiss

This lens new and only competes with 24-70 II, many working pros do not spend that much on a lens, they still use 24-70I.

70-200 2.8 G

Again, this lens is fairly new and only competes against Canon 70-200II. Sony has no low cost offerings like 70-200/2.8 non-IS, 70-200 F4IS, 70-200 I (tens thousands in secondhand market).

50 zeiss

24 zeiss

85 zeiss

All of these have smaller aperture compared to Canon Ls. And I am fairly sure 24mm and 85mm do not compete well against Canon counterpart.

100 macro

sure. Canon has 3 100mm lens. a very good and affordable 100/2 USM sports and portrait lens, a very good and affordable 100/2.8 macro, and a high end hybrid IS 100L. the Sony is about the same class as the Canon 100/2.8 macro, with extra 200 bucks on the price tag.

Sony A mount does not need multiple versions of the same lens, Image stabilization is IN BODY

You stated you wanted work horse lenses, I presented you work horse lenses, MOST pros want f2.8 zooms. You're spouting off all these expensive lenses, but then when I list the Sony offerings in equivalence, you say there are no low cost ones. Youre quite funny.
