For The Thousandth Time: 24-70+ Options

Hi,

Similar questions have been asked many times previously, and yet, I’m in the market for a 24-70ish zoom. I have an A7RII and an odd assortment of lenses, all primes (Minolta 55/1.7, Canon FD 50/1.4, Helios 58/2.0, and a Sony 100/2.8 STF that I got a deal on). I primarily shoot photos of my family indoors in my dark house (it’s old and it will continue to be poorly lit). I also will take several hundred photos while traveling and when walking around town. I love the Canon and Minolta and the Sony is great in good light and for portraiture, but I need something that’s flexible and will autofocus quickly. I value sharpness and bokeh more than focal length, but having the reach to 105 would be nice. I honestly think my house might be too dark for f4.

Here are the options:

1) Tamron 28-75

2) Sony 24-105

3) Sony 24-70/2.8

4) Canon 24-70/2.8 II on an MC-11

Thoughts are greatly appreciated.
