    Would compare the range 70-120 with z24-120 (both at f4) and 100-180 range at comparable f stops with z100-400

    I own the 70-200 2.8 S lens which I use extensively in the theaters when I am more stationary. For events, when I am moving around much more, I pre-ordered the 70-180 2.8. The weight difference between these two lenses is fairly significant for long photo shoots. The 70-180mm also has,a 1:2 macro ratio and is also designed to use Nikon's Z mount teleconverters.

    Hello,
    I have the 70-200 f/4 (on FTZ2) which is stabilized (by relatively old techno).
    I would be interested in the comparison:image quality both at fastest aperture and stabilization.
    In case you can have this lens...

Following the popular 18-35mm APSC lens, Sigma is back with a 28-45mm Full Frame version - & the optics are pretty great. But is the range broad enough? ?
