Hello,

I am considering this lens for my Canon 7Dii

I know Tamron SD series is reportedly weather sealed Not looking to take it out in a monsoon, but I am curious if anyone has experience with this lens or Tamron’s sealing in general

Is there any reason to think it would be less well sealed than a Canon brand lens?

I have that lens in its Nikon mount version.

My main gripe is that it isn't real sharp wide open as it is when it's stopped down to f 4.0. I don't know if this is a problem just in my copy or for this lens generally.

I have read that in a lot of reviews of the lens.  It sounds like the norm for that lens, though the salesperson said 2.8 is fine with hat lens in bright daylight.  Makes me a little wary.
