I wish it is, but I honestly have to say that 80% of the time I leave home with the R and the 50 stm rather than the 24-105 because it is smaller, lighter, and easier. I also know though that if the 24-105 was a 24-70 f2.8, I would more likely to have the latter with me. So I am curious of the 28-70 f2, and other’s opinion cause I am a sucker for prime quality

On my DSLR, for family and dinners, etc. I would have carried the 24-70 f/2.8.   The R version of that lens is only a bit less than the 28-70 f/2.  If I was responding $2-3k on an R lens,  I would choose the 28-70 again, as I don't mind the weight, don't use IS on less than 70mm and prefer the extra stop I get with f/2.

If I wanted to save money and weight, I would more likely get the RF 24-105mm f/4.
