Re: Should I get the xvi-35 gm or 24-70 gm?
I currently take the a7r3 and a9. One camera will have the 85 prime number on while the other will have a full general usage lens. It volition be mainly for event and mural photography. I like the 16-35 for its wide angle to get more landscapes and possibly environmental portraits. The 24-70 deeps slightly into the wide angle and reaches the normal zoom range, but I accept the 85 on my other torso already.
Which lens would you propose I get?
Depend on what you lot use more oftentimes. I take 16-35GM, 24-70GM, 85GM. The 16-35 is fantabulous for out doors and landscape, yous tin can take portrait too however yous will see distortion at 16mm since most broad lens are like that. The 24-70 is splendid for events and group pictures & portrait. I love the 85GM, taking picture in low calorie-free is squeamish, 2 extra stop compared to f2.8 does make a great difference.
If you are doing more than on events then I suggest get the 24-seventy, at 24mm information technology also broad enough for mural

Re: Should I become the 16-35 gm or 24-70 gm?
The 24-seventy deeps slightly into the wide angle and reaches the normal zoom range, just I have the 85 on my other trunk already.
That answers your question, or am I missing something?

Re: Should I get the sixteen-35 gm or 24-seventy gm?
Hard to say. I have both lenses and for issue work I will tend to work with the 24-70 GM well-nigh of the fourth dimension with the 85 on my other body simply if I have a lot of large groups I may switch to the xvi-35 GM along with either the FE55 or 85. If you lot’re going to do a lot of landscape work then the xvi-35Gm is a real must and personally I at present shoot landscape with ii bodies with the 16-35GM on one and the 70-300 Chiliad on the other
