More than just bragging rights, I guess: for some uses, the narrower DOF an/or stop more light could be important. Relative to (other zooms' ) f/2.8 ... it's halfway to an f/1.4, after all!

For other users, of course, the benefits won't be worth the size & weight.

The f/2 on the wide end gives bragging rights, but makes is heavier I guess. Weight and size to me are reasons not going this route.

I bought this lens too. In hand, the lens is certainly a weighty one and bulkier than what I had in mind. I wish they had gone with a constant f/2.8 and reduced the weight a bit. But overall, for many purposes, can function as a single lens solution. Still trying it out.

Ok, I found this Tamron 17-28mm f/2.8 Di III RXD that looks nice. I can live with the gap between 28-35mm.
Got some good reviews as well.

Hmmm, don't now how to get it smother in the OOF area??? or perhaps you and I don't have the same formula for bokeh? Which ones do you prefer so I could post them as well?

Oops, was supposed to post the Draken in there but forgot

Yes, a 20-50mm could. do too... but 35mm -> 20mm feels a tad short, found a few, but not for e-mount.

Whether this is an "odd" lens I do not want to judge. It is certainly a very attractive zoom range. I already considered buying a Tamron 35-150mm F/2.8-4.0 DI VC OSD for Nikon and Canon DSLRs and put the Canon version to use with Sony E by adding a smart adapter (Techart or Sigma).

Tamron has a rather long history in comparable zoom ranges. For quite some time (till it broke) a Tamron SP 24-135mm F/3.5-5.6 had been my standard zoom on the A99M1 - and I still have the very compact, full metal Tamron Telemacro 35-135mm f/3.5-4.5 (soon to be tested with the LA-EA5). These lenses left a very positive impression on me - as do the more recent zooms for Sony FE (the 70-180mm F/2.8 tele zoom in particular).

The real innovation is the F/2.0 for the shorter angles (as the F/2.8 had been for their extremely versatile 28-200mm). I am looking forward to see the first reviews and to get more information (price? size? filter size? weight?) on the lens.


Been waiting a long time for a lens like this, so now I have bought it and I love it.
Now, waiting for a 14-35 f2.8 or f4 preferable from Tamron, Canon has a f4 one but it doesn't fit my Sony :-)

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?

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).

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.

However, as someone who mostly shoots when travelling somewhere, I can see sort of see why one would bring this schlepp. Especially if no other lens in its range and no tripod. I tend to bring a travel tripod however and for those instances speed is less relevant.


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
