Huh? The FE 24-70 is a very nice lens. It is certainly a step up from the 28-70 but not as much as the APS-C 16-70 vs 18-55 or 16-50.

The FE 28-70 is sharper than the FE 24-70.

I will not call FE 28-70 is sharper but close to 3x more expensive FE 24-70 that is a failure design of this critical zoom

I wish this FE 24-70 (or future FE 24-70 II) is as sharp as Canon 24-70L/2.8 II but only one stop slower.  You see 24-70L II @f2.8 is sharper than FE 24-70 @4.0 at least in edges. I don't mind future FE 24-70 II weight upto 600g, bigger and costs even a bit more provided it can close to 24-70L II.   And Canon has patent for 24-70L/2.8 IS that will be released in next two years.

Meanwhile I use 24-70L II on A7R thru adapter.  AF is slow but no complaints in sharpness from edge to edge.
