Re: Constant zooms are a marketing gimmick and a way to protect customers from themselves.

So that makes sense, but the bigger point is that we could use a lens that is actually sharp at f4 through the entire zoom range. Maybe even an f2.8-f4 lens. So of course my f4-5.6 lens closes down the aperture for a good reason at the tele end, but I'd like a lens that didn't need to do that. The constant f2.8 zooms are presumably much better lenses...and much more expensive. A constant f4 zoom would be a decent middle ground.
