Re: It depends

The 12-60mm is a fine lens.  If you sell it and get $700 for it you will be lucky.  If you buy a Zeiss 24-70mm, you will drop $2,000.   Net cost $1,300 and you still need to buy a Sony camera.  If your choice is the a77, you will be dropping another $1,000.   Total for the switch--about $2,400.   You can pick up an new e-5 for $1,500 on sale.

Is the Zeiss 24-70mm any better than the 12-60mm?  I don't know, but many people think there is premium paid for the Zeiss name.
