Assuming you want to stay smaller you have to be willing to accept a stop slower than so an 85mm f/1.8 and 135mm f/2.8 would be primes I'd love to see as an alternative to the 70-200mm f/4 zoom.

Would you buy either of these before you would buy the the zoom if they were available?

Yes, I'd buy a FE 85mm f/1.8 for my A7/A7R before the 70-200mm f/4. I want a smaller lens.

No. Prefer to get the 70-200mm f/4 with OIS.

No. I prefer to get a UWA prime or zoom instead of a telephoto.
