Very average glass

Well, the edges are soft and the corners even softer. This is a lens problem. Perhaps you have a bad sample. In any case, I would certainly try another lens! At f8 and 46mm I would certainly expect better. The reviews on this lens aren't that good. Let me quote: The Tamron 24-70/2.8 VC delivers a pretty good overall performance - only the FX-corners disappoint especially at 35mm. On an unforgiving 36MP full-frame body you need to stop down to f5.6 to lift FX-corner performance to near good levels.

Most pros I know test their lenses - I know I always did. Still do even though I am retired. Good glass is vital.
