Re: 24-70 F2.8 or 24-105 F4 for Alpha A1

Actually I own the GM lens only and, thus, cannot give a perfect recommendation. The GM is a perfect zoom lens covering a widely used focal range and comes as an absolutely professional tool (... such as your Alpha 1 is). Weight is just okay (... it is f2.8), but AF is almost perfect and IQ is extremly good. The only limitation for you could be the focal range when travelling, because from time to time you want to have just a bit more than 70 mm ...

Hence the G f4 can be a solution to go with, the better lens certainly is the GM (... though many people say that the G lens is even better than the GM).

That means whatever your decision might be, it cannot be wrong ... both lenses are really great. For my style of photography, f2.8 (... bokeh 😀) is more important than the focal range, but that can be different for your eyes.

Happy shooting and enjoy your new Alpha 1!
