I have the konica-minolta 17-35 and it is a decent lens. It has problems when the sun is in the frame though with a circular flare that is really unusual. I also bought the SEL1018 and really like the results from 12-17. I've found some profiles for it on the A7R and it just takes a little vignetting adjustment. There is an ergonomic problem in that you can't use the hood without sever vignetting. I suspect the price is going to be very high for the new FE 16-35 and will likely pass on it since I can get good results with what I have.
