The 24-70 f2.8 is already like a bag of f1.8 primes. So colour me uninterested.

Really ? How do you shoot your f2.8 lens at f1.8 ?

“Like” a bag of primes. The output from the zoom is just about as good as bringing a bag of primes.

So you think a f2 zoom would not be as good as the 24-70 f2.8 ? What if it is ?

I think it will be better, but the whole point of a zoom is convenience. Kinda defeats the purpose if it’s the size of the Canon’s 28-70. Or the old 24-70 f2.8e for the matter.

And there’s also the price. If it’s really nice, then it can be something worth renting, just not worth owning.
