I'd trade my standard zoom for a Sony 24-200mm in a heartbeat (if the rumors are true)

There have been a lot of rumors about Sony lenses of late and not all that much in the form of cold, hard facts - but that doesn’t stop us from getting excited about what could be, especially as a Sony shooter. 

Last week we shared the first leaked images of the Sony 24-50mm f/2.8 lens but personally, I think the news of a 24-200mm f/2.8-4.5 G OSS is even more exciting! For what and how I shoot the range of the 24-50mm would be quite limiting and I don’t care enough about the size and weight of a standard zoom lens to compromise on zoom capabilities. However, the 24-200mm would offer an all-in-one solution for shooting needs thanks to its massive focal length range.
