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.

If that f2 zoom would be 24-50 or 60 it would probably be the same size, weight, price as the 24-70 f2.8. But i doubt we will ever see a f2 zoom from Nikon.

Sure.  But tops out at 50mm.  So if you want the 24-70 or 24-105 range you have to buy both.  Money and weight.
