"Just barely under 1kg. Filter size is 82mm." according to SAR.
Can't be much bigger than the Sigma 40 1.4 Art

Who is this lens for? Good focal length for street photographers, but its gigantic. Do wedding/portrait photogs shoot at those focal lengths? If so, is the size a problem for them?

That thing looks like it'll be about the size of the Tamron 35-150, but with a fraction of the range and only slightly faster in the overlapping range.

Not sure who the target market is for this to be honest.

I don't know, 1.8 looks nice for sure but it's only 28-45 mm.
Maybe if it were 24-50, it would contrast with Sony's own nicely .

I think I'll wait and see if 24-70/2 rumors materialize.

I wonder why they don't make it 24-35, they used to have one for DSLR if I remember that right.

I would think more people would shoot around the 40-50mm range than the 24-28mm range.

@ 45mm it's f/2.2 vs f/1.8.

35mm as your widest or 28mm as your widest matters. Not always, but sometimes it does. In cases 28 is wide enough while 35mm isn't you don't need the second camera for something wide, so you can use that camera for a 85mm f/1.4 (2 stops extra over the Tamron) or a 70-200mm f/2.8 (50mm longer). Or a future constant aperture Sigma 45-85mm f/1.8.

There's a Canon RF 28-70mm f/2.0 L USM lens, and yes, wedding and event photographers do use this lens, despite it's 1430grams.
Compared to a 28mm and 40/50mm prime you're trading a little bit of aperture for not having to change lenses and to combine this stuff in one lens, which makes it a relatively light weight. As a one lens solution it's more flexible than a 35mm prime. And in a two lens solution I would rather combine this with an 85mm than a 35mm with an 85mm.

I have a feeling that it is optimized for video

No way.

Give me a 28/1.4 that I can crop to 45/2ish and make it the size of the 24GM. Thatís a lens I might buy.
