Until we get some definitive tests from DxOMark, or whoever, the 16-70 remains somewhat of an unknown quantity. I recommend the FE 28-70 as being superior to the kit 18-55. I own both.

Different ranges though - not really compearable. The 28mm FE would be narrow when on APS-C camera (well over 20mm+ APS-C equivalent vs 18mm), right?

Yes, FE28-70 will be exactly that on APS-C eg. 28-70. It is a good zoom though. If I had A7 my first choice would be FE28-70 over FE24-70.

Yup, (not meaning the Spanish swear word) the 28-70 may be an even better lens when used on APSC because there are no soft edges or corners.
