I'm interested in this, I fear it'll be priced excessively though, £1500 or something crazy, in which case I probably won't get it.

Nikon 16-35mm f/4 VR is $1250 US, so my guess is about that price. Being for mirrorless the lens could be cheaper, but my guess is Sony will use that for increased profit instead


That's probably the best we could hope for.

However:  The Sony 70-200 costs $1500.  The similar lenses from Nikon and Canon cost $1400-$1450.  So I don't expect the new Sony 16-35 to be cheaper than the Nikon version.  It will probably be more.

I'm guessing $1400-$1500.  Considering the blue plate... maybe even more.
