These are some of Sony’s highest-tier lenses, and the prices certainly reflect that. The 24-70 F/2.8 ZA SSM II will costs $2,100 when it’s released in June. The 16-35mm F/2.8 ZA SSM II will command a hefty $2,250 when it hits the market during the same time frame. Both the Canon and Nikon 24-70mm F/2.8 lenses check in between $1,800 and $1,900, so the difference isn’t that pronounced. The Canon 16-35mm F/2.8L, however, costs just $1,599, which makes it considerably cheaper.
