16-70 / F2.8 APS-C Lens?

I often read about requests or wishes from users in direction to Sony for an 16-50 / F2.8 lens for APS-C.

Why is nobody requesting a 16-70 / F2.8 APS-C Lens?

16-70 is a very practical zoom range on the A6x00 series. Maybe it is not the sharpest but I really use it a lot. Well balanced, good zoom range, ...

When looking on my compact 16-70 F4 Sony-Zeiss I would assume that a 16-70 / F2.8 lens should be an viable option or am i wrong?

The 24-70 F2.8 G-Master has a filter diameter of 82mm. A 16-70 F2.8 for APS-C only should be equal or less.

At the moment It sound like a dream lens for APS-C to me:

- 16 - 70mm
- F2.8 constant
- Focus Hold Button
- "G-Master like optical quality".
- Price between 1200 and 1800 €.
