Sony's new 24-70mm f2.8 G for video?
Sony is about to start shipping their new 24-70mm and it costs a pretty penny.
I just switched all of my gear recently from the GH4 to an a7sii. I really like it and am glad I made the switch, but I just bought the Sigma 50mm f1.4 and the Sigma 24-105 f4 with a metabones. I have no qualms with the lenses. They're great, but I'm really missing autofocus (which is worthless because of the Metabones). I primarily shoot video, so I can cope without the AF most of the time, however, I'd like to get a small gimbal, in which case having a lens with continuous AF might come in really handy.
Anybody have thought about the new Sony 24-70 in terms of video use?
To make matters more ambiguous, Sigma is rumored to come out with an adaptor of their own to Sony E-mount, which might improve AF, but I'm sure it won't be nearly as good as a native lens...
