Z5 paired with 24-50mm kit lens or 24-70mm f/4 S?

Hi all,

I’m planning to purchase a Z5 soon.

I want to pair it with either the 24-50mm kit lens or the 24-70mm f/4 S lens.

Do you guys think the 24-70mm lens is dated? It’s been a couple years now. Released in August 2018.

The 24-70 lens is apparently more premium than the 24-50, but that 24-50 is newer.

Can anyone that has personally used both lens chime in?

(There is a sale at my local camera store so I’m afraid I can’t rent to test in case it gets sold out.

I’m not too concerned about price as I know I’ll get what I pay for. I’m more concerned about the age difference. I can probably get the 24-70 for $580 individually or 24-50 for an additional $200 as a kit lens with the Z5 purchase.)

Thank you for any response!
