are you talking about this lens test results for SAL-1650 f/2.8 at Photozone The new EF 24-70/4L IS wasn't tested yet, but it might be assumed the results will not be worse than for EF 24-70/2.8L as it is by one stop less ambitious (f/4 ​vs. ​f/2.8), and if so I'm not sure that SAL 16-50 is a competitor

In terms of sharpness, yes, the L glass will be sharper, but the 16-50/2.8 still looks pretty respectable to me--especially in the center area.

When I said it was equivalent, I was referring in terms of DOF, brightness, etc.., taking into account the fact the 16-50 is APS-C whereas the 24-70 is full frame (F/4 on FF is fairly similar to F/2.8 on APS-C)

... Sony-Zeiss SAL 24-70/2.8and then they're about equal, although S-Z is almost one 1 kilo in heft ,
