Travel lens - which option?

OK - here are the options for my A77:

  • Sony 16-50 f2.8 
  • Tamron 18-250
  • (Or buy new Tamron 18-270 PZ)

Obviously the 16-50 has a limited focal length, but it has the benefit of the fast aperture (and is slightly wider).

Is there an advantage in IQ between the newer Tamron and the old Tamron 18-250? (obviously the PZ silent focus motor)

Anyone who has used these on a trip in dull dreary wet winter weather ?

Thanks in advance......

Still not enough time to take pictures....... Is there ever?
