Sony 16-50 f/2.8 vs Tamron 17-50 f/2.8 for A77
8 months ago

Actually i have the Tamron 17-50, and it works beautifuly, it's almost all the time on my A77.

But in my country, the Sony 16-50 is selling for $500 new, and i can sell my tamron in $380; so for only $120 i can "Upgrade" to the Sony.

I like the weather sealing and SSM of the Sony, also the 16mm vs 17mm it's welcome, because i use my tamron mostly for astro, landscapes and social photos (Here are my photos with the Tamron )
Do you think it's a worth upgrade?
The 16mm f/2.8 is critical for me, it's sharper than the Tamron?
