Most people seem to think that the new high-IQ zoom lens will be an e-mount version of the SAL1680Z, which makes sense to me.

There's also a "mid-range zoom" on the e-mount timeline for this year.  Though, since it's not supposed to be a "Zeiss" or "G series", it seems doubtful that it'd be a fast(er) telephoto zoom.. but it may be worthwhile waiting.

I have tried legacy primes, FD mainly.  I've not been happy with the IQ when wide open, though.  The FDn 85 f1.8 is the best that I've tried.  The FD 200 2.8 is fairly poor when wide open.  The Takumar 135mm f2.5 is so-so.  I have tons of legacy glass though, not really looking to buy anymore.

My research shows that the LA-EA2 *does* support OS on the Sigma lenses that provide it.
