Sigma 28-70

I am not a Sigma fan in fact I dislike them but this lens if it tests well and renders nicely intrigues me. I hope it is sharp at least from F4 on and renders nicely.

The size is surprisingly small, 2oz lighter and smaller diameter than a 35 GM and only two tenths of an inch longer.

If it is good enough a 28-70 having such a useful range seems perfect for non critical use and would be hard to pass up.

There are a lot of times where ultimate IQ is not required and I am sure it is plenty good enough for a lot of my events and just walking around.

That goes against the grain with my philosophy of using the best of the best but a good deal of the pics I take are not for my portfolio of best images.

One could also carry a diminutive 15-21mm prime and or Loxia 85 especially with a a7rIV and crop it out to 127.5 and be good to go. Even the A1 will work.
