Re: 28-70 Kit vs 24-70 on A7

I got this lens yesterday and I am resisting comparing with the kit lens as I don't expect a huge difference and therefore won't be disappointed, that said I think curiosity will get the better of me!

I think often the differences in lenses are never as great as we expect, for example I had the Canon 24-70 f2.8 MKII and compared it to the Tamron with VC which was less than half the price and for most of the time the IQ was much the same, unless you pixel peep.

My take is, just knowing you have the best available and the build is better, and you get 4mm wider for me is worth the extra, particularly with the  7R.

I am a zoom guy and therefore I have no options, however if a 24mm prime arrives then it may be a different storey for some people.

Either lens will take good images, and both will rely on PP to maximise the end result.
