I agree with your assumption on size and weight being roughly equivalent with the Nikon 16-35mm f4.

Thank you for the mock up. This actually was very helpful.

I had the Nikon 16-35mm f4 with a Nikon D800 until about a year ago but rarely used it as the total camera/lens package was too large and somewhat heavy for air travel.

Seeing it here with the A7 helps me visualize the package size. It is probably fine with the Sony grip but then it is pretty close to the size of the D800.

This has convinced me to go with a prime and until we see a native Sony Zeiss FE UWA prime or Zeiss manual designed for FE mount, I guess I'll need to use the EA4/24mmZA

Thanks so much for your effort.
