28-75 vs 24-70 2.8 + others, my Z9 is finally coming !!

Hi all,

Exciting news for me today , my Z9 is coming next week!

Ordered it back in January.

I originaly orded it with 50 1.2 and FTZ II.

But instead of the 50 1.2 I decided I'll go for a zoom first , and take the 50 1.2 later down the road (or possibly the 85 1.2 when it comes out)

As a stadard zoom, I'm deciding between those 2 lenses the 28-75 2.8 and the 24-70 2.8.

I'm not iterested in the 24-120 f4 or the 24-70 f4, since I shoout a lot of indoor sport so 2.8 is my go to.

(crossfit and wightlifting, so those ranges are enough for now )

So the quesion is which one?

If i take the 28-75 I have some more budget for other lenses.

Like a 2nd hand 200-500 / 150-600 and 14-30 f4 , and / or 85 1.8

Where the 24-70 2.8 chews it all up.

How much better is the 24-70 ? is it worth the extra?

One more key thing that I need is focus speed and acuracy .

So far I used an X-t3/4 for this and they did a good job overall but I did have some painful misses.

On that note, is the Z9 the leap I hope it would be over fuji? Or am i better off with Sony / canon ? a slight buyers remorse here , can't lie

I have some time for changes
