You could have the Tamron 17-50 AND Sony DT 35mm f1.8 for less than the price of the Sony 16-50. The little 35mm prime possibly beats both in some aspects of IQ.

I believe there is no doubt the 35 beats those 2 cameras in IQ. All things being equal a prime will have better IQ and the 35 has outstanding IQ even for a prime.
