Probably size and cost concerns. The f/2.0 FT zooms were generally criticized for their being the same size as, and more expensive than, FF f/2.8 glass; enough so that, looking at the systems separately, you'd actually save money and gain capability going for an FF system with a 24-70 and 70-200 over an FT system with a 14-35 and 35-100. While they may have been marvelous pieces of glass, they didn't by any means play to the system's strengths.

You think its due to size concerns? How is the Sony 28-70 able to be so small then and priced well too?

The combo comparison size and price are almost the same, although its well known the quality of the Panny lens is superior to the Sony.
