Don't think so, there's a verification process.

Nope, better to spend that money towards a better lens.
Go with 28 - 75 2.8 tamron. Not too expensive and versatile.
Tamron 28-75 would be the cheapest lens worth buying if you're looking for a similar range. Full frame is expensive though, that's just something you'll have to come to grips with if you want good lenses.

Worth it to get with the 28-70mm lens for less than $200 more?

Any recommendation for such a lens? It seems like the Sony lens in that range rapidly get super expensive.

Full frame camera lenses will not be the cheapest. Keep that in mind before buying a full frame camera. Tamron zooms are great values, depending on why you want to shoot. The 28-75 2.8 covers your standard ranges and is a great single lens kit. 28-200 is a great travel zoom, at the expense of aperture. Samyang/Rokinon have a variety of autofocus prime lenses at good prices 18mm, 24mm, 35mm, 45mm, 75mm, 85mm. It really depends on what you want to shoot. You can't bird shoot with a 18mm lens very well and it will be hard to do indoor shots on a 70-300 lens.

Great deal. If you were in the market for something like a6600 definitely consider this deal for only few more hundos. You lose portability, and glass is more expensive but full frame has its advantages

Agreed. Prime lenses usually offer great bang for your buck. You obviously lose the zoom ability but a lot of pros prefer shooting this way. Helps you think more about how you will compose the shot.

The 50mm 1.8 is a great prime FF lens for Sony that regularly costs <$200. Though I hear it's not the greatest for video because of focus breathing.

What I was gonna say. You'll be surprised at how amazing this lens is. And this is coming from a prime lens guy myself. I use the 50mm f/1.2 but the tamron 28-70 would be the zoom lens I'd go to.

This was the case until recently. If you're going APSC, Fujifilm is usually the top choice, but they have a lack of cheaper lenses. Sony FF with the E-mount gives you a ton of options both prime/zoom. I have a Fuji kit, but sold most of my lenses and use a manual focus prime now on it. For Sony, you can build out a great kit using Tamron/Samyang/Rokinon/Sigma lenses and save some cash. Plus, if you buy the smaller primes, they'll work great on the A6xxx bodies. With that said, I still love my Fuji gear. If only Nikon would introduce more APSC/small primes for their new retro crop design body.

Its been "around the corner" for a while now.
Until there are solid details, assume no.
