16-35 in FF would have an equivalent Field of view of 24-52.5, not 70mm

I'd never thought of it like that... this would be an amazingly useful lens for me on an A7r.

In APS-C crop mode, it's a 24-52.5mm f/4 standard zoom, and since it's a FF lens it should be consistently sharp across the frame. 15.5 M pixels will do just fine for a travel zoom, which is what it would be for me.

Flip the camera into full frame mode, and it's an ultrawide zoom lens, and here I'd want to use the full resolution of the sensor.

Add the 55mm f/1.8 (a world-class fast standard prime used FF, and a capable short portrait prime when used APS-C) and all my regular focal lengths are there, in just 2 lenses!

I am not sure it needs to be enormous due to the short flange distance.
