Re: FE 24-70 f/4: Holding me back from going to A7x

The lack of a great 24-70 also holds me back from buying a A7rii.

I'm sure the FE 24-70 is able to capture some Ok pictures, but I if put >$3K in a new body, I want great not "just fine" pictures.

There are some alternatives, like Metabones + Canon 24-70 , or LEA3 + Tamron . But I would miss some of the cool features (AF eye tracking , etc) that motivate me to get the A7rii.

one solution I'm considering is a FE lens (like the Zeiss 55mm) for the features (and quality), and Canon 24-70 f4 + 70-200 F4 for the quality only. But not sure it makes sense to invest in some Canon lenses in this context.

( I know there is a good FE 16-35. But I'm not convinced that this focal range only would work for me. Or perharps I should rent/try the 10-18 on the A6000 and see if I like it )
