Also how does the Tamron 17-50 compare? I will not use it for video as my RX100 has become my video camera of choice so AF noise isn't important. Build quality of the 35 is good enough for me so that's not an issue. Weather sealing is of no importance. The 35 has outstanding IQ but I would like a fast zoom lens for more indoor versatility. I am afraid however if the zoom sacrifices too much as far as IQ it will be wasted money. Given all that should I buy the Tamron, Sony or just stick with the 35.
