Compared to the kit lens, it seems like a bit thinner & a bit longer ::)

Pls let us know how you like it? from handling to IQ :o

I haven't made any worthwhile photos with it yet, but the build quality is not at all appealing ... my EF 50 f/1.4 has better build quality than this "ZEISS" 24-70 f/4 lens ... the build quality of this lens is a bit of a let down for me ... but I suppose they had to keep the weight down and thus the feeling of cheaper build quality  :-\  ... or am I just unfairly comparing it with Canon L lenses  :-\ ... but again, to me, it does not even seem to match even the build quality of my EF-M 18-55 IS STM.
I'll shoot some images in the morning and see how it performs optically.

O-no :-\

I hope you can return it if thing doesn't work out. As an owner of 50mm f1.4, I know the build quality of this lens(not that great).

The Zeiss FE 55mm is solid - from build quality to IQ.

Should I cancel my pre-order?

I am not going to return the FE 24-70 f/4, coz from the random shots I did today, the image quality is definitely a lot better than the kit lens ... its just that the build quality that is bugging me ... maybe its just me, so don't go by my word.
But I did ask my eldest son to hold both the lenses in his hand and asked him about which he thinks has better build quality ... I did the same thing with my wife ... both of them (son & wife) felt the EF-M has slightly better build quality. 
Maybe its because of the shiny/slippery plastic used for this lens ... don't go by my word ... you may want to actually hold it in your hands at your local store, and then make up your mind. Personally, as far as build quality is concerned, I was expecting a lot more from a lens that cost me $1047 :-\

I just found this review on FE ZEISS 24-70 f/4 lens ... maybe you might find it useful, before you buy this lens. http://phillipreeve.net/blog/rolling-review-carl-zeiss-vario-tessar-t-fe-424-70-za/

Personally, I feel it should be priced around $750-$800

At £1049 in the UK thats a hell of a lot for a F4 zoom… It better be good, makes the camera seem pretty pointless its huge!!

I agree that its quite pricey ... to me it feels like a lens worth $800 max ... but the lens is not huge, maybe its the way I've photographed it with my mobile phone that is making it look big ... on my a7 it looks well balanced and complements well with the camera body ... personally I would have preferred a third of an inch shorter.

It's nice to have feedbacks from hand-on user ;)

I read some reviews, most of them didn't give positive feedbacks as much as FE 35mm & 55mm. Looking at your photos, I feel this might be a bit bulky for this system already(i have shot with kit lens).

I'll look forward to see more FE primes in wider end. I heard Sony/Zeiss got some issues with this lens and they delay the shipment in US to late Feb. Not sure is a design issue or just some minor ones.

I don't mind spending $1100 to $1300 - as long the lens can deliver high IQ.

Unfortunately, the FE 24-70 f/4 is not worth spending that much  :( ... I think you'd be better served with the FE 35mm f/2.8
As I said earlier, it is better than the 28-70 kits lens, but not so much that one would want to spend $1047 (in USA, it costs $1198).
Sometime in the near future I may get the Canon EF 24 f/2.8 IS, EF 35 f/2 IS and use them with the metabones adapter ... that way I get lenses that can be used on both the systems and still get Image Stabilization ... also I've seen some images of people using those lenses on the a7 and am pretty much convinced.

These are the first few photos I've made while testing the FE ZEISS 24-70 f/4 OSS lens (mounted on Sony a7) ... today as usual is a dusty day here ... but one of my neighbors grew this sunflower in front of the house (this is very unusual for this part of the world as you only see them during flower exhibitions and not in anyones house as they do not survive in this dry/hot weather) ... anyway with not so nice weather, I had to make do with this beautiful sunflower.
All the images are shot as jpg at 70mm and handheld and in slightly windy condition ... I've posted 16 of the same images but shot at different apertures (starting from f/4 to f/22).
The first two here are at f/4 (1/500sec, ISO 100) & f/4.5 (1/400sec, ISO 100)
