The Tamron is a C-grade optic that needs stopping down to f/5.6 to even approach the resolution of the ZD 14-35 at f/2.0, and simply never reaches the contrast or colour fidelity, that's how. LOL - comparing the two is quite a funny proposition Thanks for the laugh.

Is not 14-54 what used to be Tamron? So 14-54 would be a C-grade lens just as well, or is it not so? (Hypothetically) mounting it on a high resolution full frame camera would not make any difference either, you say?

If you prefer a smooth but bland and mushy high-megapixel image, that's your business. I prefer an ultra-sharp, contrasty, vivid image at a lower resolution. With lots of PP and downscaling you could make your image look like that too, but I made a different choice.

When downsizing high resolution image to the current 12MPx size frame? - I don't think you will see much of mushiness in it, if there was any. From my observation.
