Re: Which features would have your ideal zoom lens?

Some of the lenses mentioned here, will dwarf Berta...

As a I-prefer-only-one-lense-guy, I was perfectly happy with the 16-85... until I found too many shots were at 16mm and too often found wider was needed in-situ.

Replaced the 16-85 with a 12-24 and 24-120, both f/4, and have since then extremely rare shot above 100mm, so... my perfect zoom would be 12-100 f/4 (2.8 perhaps) or 12-70mm...

Of course sharp all over like the new 70-200...

That surely must be the f/3,5-5,6 version, you're referring to???
