perhaps tamron 28-200mm f2.8-5.6 might be to you liking
its f4.5 @105mm instead of 135mm but its f2.8 instead f4 at 28mm plus you have reach to 200mm all in a smaller package.

Knowing what we know about the size and aperture now if f2.8 at 35mm bought the size down to 70-180mm levels I'd have preferred that too. but it is what it is now.


If you don't go down past 35mm often, its range and wide aperture would probably be a good wedding option. I've been at a couple of weddings where the second lens was a 70-200/2.8 G (usually on a second camera) and it's a tad heavy. Plus switching cameras still adds a friction.

I can see the appeal of a more seamless 1 lens solution. (And maybe a second camera with a smaller, wide prime)

I think for travel, there are three traits in a lens you want- range, speed and low weight/size. But with any actual lens, you can only (at best) pick two of those traits

I meant mainly that my definition of "travel" might not be everyone else's which I've always without thinking much interpreted as "small and light". Yours seems to be the standard lens wishlist and reflecting upon it the term can mean many things.
-Travelling to another part of the world where there's a very real danger of theft? Maybe make an old film camera look worn :) Travelling with your spouse to Venice? They might not want to wait for you to setup your tripod or be seen in your and your telephoto lens' company, plus there are airplane restrictions. Going on a daytrip? Perhaps there aren't many restrictions, if it's a photo trip. Planning on staying the night in the outdoors? There will be some weight and size restrictions. Climbing a mountain? Weight and size. Going to Mordor? A fast prime is the best travel lens then. ETc

Right. "With one notable exception, the lens offers similar ergonomics to the company's just-announced 28-75mm F2.8 Di III VXD G2, with focus and zoom rings that are well demarcated from the lens barrel thanks to their slightly greater diameter. However, the zoom and focus rings' positions are switched."

I guess then that the 28-75g2 has the zoom and focus rings in the same position as the 28-75g1, which is to say focus closest to the camera. Perhaps we'll see in reviews indications as to why lenses released at the same time for the same mount with very much the same features and look would differ in this regard.

I see it is now officiallyAnnounced

To my mind, too heavy at 1.17kg and too expensive at 1900usd.

Yes - a bit disappointed. Heavier and more expensive then I hoped for. But I guess you cannot change physics or the cost of material (and labour).

Yeah, I'd balk at calling anything over 1kg a travel lens. The optics and speed look excellent though. I wonder what niche it will end up filling?
