Re: New FE Lens Announced - Zeiss 16-35mm F4.0

The quality of this lens will determine whether or not I keep my A7r (which has been out for repair for over a month, btw!). I like shooting uwa a lot for landscapes, and if this lens doesn't deliver the goods I'm going to have to pass, given the lack of legacy ultrawides that work well on the A7r. I don't have a lot of faith in Sony honestly, given the FE 24-70 (good enough, but hardly worth $1200, and yes I have it). I can't see spending another $1200 on another mediocre lens. So while I really hope the 16-35 can deliver the goods, I'm resigned to the idea that it probably will not.
