My intention was to find opinions on classic range zoom like 24-70 f2.8 vs f4, and particulary the 70-200 f2.8 vs f4.

Considering that even an f2.8 in the range 24-105 can be considered slow in comparison with fast f1.4 primes.

Do we still "need" a fast zoom (2.8 vs 4)? would have been a better question.

Some people do, for some things. Others would be far better served with the f/4 zooms.
