Sigma 18-50mm F2.8 DC DN Contemporary vs SEL1670Z size comparison

Seen a few videos comparing the new Sigma 18-50mm F2.8 DC DN Contemporary to the SEL1655G and the Tamron 17-70. Understandable as they're more comparable in terms of performance and image quality.

I've been keeping a hold of my SEL1670Z for its compact size and constant f4 and be willing to lose a few mm at the wide end for a constant 2.8 and better bokeh. As my camera is for taking photos of my hyperactive toddler. Not too bothered by the lack of image stabilization as I'm using a a6500

On their websites the sizes are

SEL1670Z 66.6 x 75mm (2-5/8 x 3in.) at 308g (10.9oz.)

Sigma  φ61.6×76.5mm (φ2.4in.×3.0in.) at 290g (10.2oz.)

Which look really good in terms of compactness but has anyone seen reviews/videos comparing the 2 or even handled the 2 themselves to compare. (I know the Sigma is on pre-order till late October)
