The f2 zoom lens would be too big and expensive. It would be lighter and less expensive if you add a prime.

Thank you all for the tips and advice! It would be nice to have both of these, but financially, that's not going to happen. I may lean towards the 85 because a lot of the shooting I plan on doing is outdoors where I won't be limited by space. I'd like to try the 85 1.8 to see if there's any major differences (I don't have a trained eye, nor do I pixel peep and wouldn't necessarily know what to look for anyways). I just see that it's $1200 cheaper as one of you mentioned above.

Before I switched to Sony from Canon, I saw that Canon came out with a 28-70 f/2 for their mirrorless body. Is there anything like that in the works for Sony? If there is, I could wait and eventually get it while selling the 24-70 GM.
