18-35mm f1.8 lens on APS-C is like a 27-53mm f2.8 lens on FF.

Old 28-70 f2.8 lenses don't have quite the same quality as the 18-35.

The new 24-70 f2.8 lenses are more like it, and have stabilisation.

Personally I accept the wider range and stabilisation for the quality loss wide open in the corners especially.

If you yearn for more quality than a modern 24-70 I suggest you get a fast prime. They'll usually be two stops faster also.

You could waste your time lobbying for an FF 28-50 f2 but why not crack on and take photos now with some of the excellent lenses already available
