I'm hoping for a 24-105 F4, but that isn't really 'unusual'. I use my 24-240 like a 24-120 as it tends to fall apart after 130mm, so its just a heavy 24-105!!

I have bought Canon 24-105/3.5-5.6 and use it with Sigma MC-11. I works well in decent light and appeared very compact and light combo. The lens itself is very good.

I just had a look and that lens is 525g, plus the weight of the MC-11 (125g?) That gives a total weight of 650g against 780g for the Sony so not really saving much weight for half the reach.

The length is also 104mm, say add 25mm for the adapter and that's 129mm against 118mm for the Sony 24-240, so the canon is actually longer for half the reach.

Looking for something smaller to be honest
