My mail clearly kicked off in bold with: what is the point?
I am not making a statement, I am asking a question.
So why do you say "Thankfully Canon isn't listening to you"? I'm simply asking what the purpose is. Why are you so aggressive to me?
Because your post reads like a nonsensical rant and your questions sound rhetorical?
Given the choices between the RF 24-105L f/4, 24-70L f/2.8, and 28-70L f/2, I went with the f/2. Really sad I did every time I have to carry it a long distance and really glad I did every time I look at the images taken with it.
The RF 28-70L f/2 is like having several Otus primes in one lens: sacrificing f/1.4 but gaining autofocus. The rest of the f/2 trinity will likely be equally world-class. But those for whom the IQ, convenience over primes, and rendering do not outweigh the lack of IS and the extra size and weight, Canon has us covered there, too with f/2.8 and f/4 versions.
Maybe you just got caught up in the whirlwind of everyone else's naysaying, and you genuinely wanted to know. I say look at threads about and images taken with the 28-70 to better understand why someone would want the rumored 14-28 f/2.
