THis is a fantastic lens, as you can read in many other online reviews. The lens is not light, but isn't a problem to carry around all day if you have a strap or side bag. It is super sharp, and has great bokeh. It was so amazing to me how big a difference the lens makes - after renting it - I bought this lens for my own personal collection.

The Sony 24-70mm f/2.8 Carl Zeiss T* Lens is a professional-grade bright zoom lens specifically designed for the Sony Alpha SLR series. It follows a compact, lightweight design and offers a wide-angle to medium telephoto range, which makes it ideal for a wide range of shooting applications.
The constant aperture makes this lens ideal for video and the wide open aperture of f/2.8 allows for shooting in dim lit situations. If you want the actual 24-70mm range you can use this with the Sony A900 but with every other Sony camera you would be shooting with a cropped sensor making the range 42mm to 114mm.
I had read awesome reviews about this lens, and I knew I had to try it for myself. It just so happened that the week that I rented this lens it rained all 7 days, but I was able to use it for 20 minutes outside in between rain showers and inside a darkened room. Even in this minimal use I could clearly see a difference between the lenses that I have been using and this one, the definition was amazing!
