Re: CZ 16-35 or 24-70 on A850?

I don't have either lens at the moment, but I do have an a850 and have been looking. For the two choices you listed, I would go with option 2. For most of my landscape work, I use a very small aperture to maximize my DOF. A 20mm prime would be very good to get me wider than 24mm when I needed it. For my travel photos, I don't think I would be happy with a 16-35 only, so the 24-70 is my leading candidate to spend the pennies I've been saving. I too can't afford both.
