The 18-35 is an equivalent field of view of 28-56 on full frame. If they made an f2 28-56, that would be amazing. A 24-35 is much narrower, IMO.
I agree the range is rather narrow. Would have been very intrigued if it was a 24-70 or 28-85 f/2

I imagine this type of lens would be useful for events, a 35-70F2 would be great for events.
I also agree here, but perhaps extend it out to 90 or even 105 mm. Take a bolder step with a 3X zoom.

If the lens gives similar sharpness to the Sigma 35mm Art, and lens correction profiles are made available for Sony/Canon/Nikon bodies, it'll be an interesting lens for sure.
Don't think of it as a zoom lens. Think of it as a way to carry a 24 f/2, 28 f/2 and 35 f/2 in the same space as one lens.
I had similar thoughts, reminiscent of a Leica tri-elmar style lens. I wonder if there will be click-stops in the zoom range.
