Second, there is an 82mm filter thread. Why is this the second-most important difference for me to list here? Because it destroys the compatibility I had with the other two lenses in my travel kit (80-400g and 16-35vr). With the 24-70g, all three lenses shared a single CP filter AND you could interchange the lens caps on each

Ouch, that would be an issue for me too. I've invested a lot in filters and made the choice based on my largest filter size at the time (using step-up filters for the smaller sizes): 77mm, including my 24-70 G. I still only have only 1 lens over that.

However, for my part, the G version will do just fine anyway. I'm mostly shooting primes these days. Having the 24-70mm is nice at times, but is no longer my go-to in those focal lengths.
