Tamron 28-75 f2.8 di lens opinions?

I am an event photographer

My main gear: canon 6d body / 5d mark iii

Lenses: sigma 24-105 f4 art ...canon ef 85 f1.8..canon 50 f1.8 stm

My workhorse is my sigma lens that i really love and for some low light closeup decorations/ photowalls i usually use my canon 50mm

I want an alternative not too expensive zoom lens to have as a backup in my bag

The tamron 28-75 f2.8 di is in my bugdet

I've read mixed reviews though...some reviews writing that is a very good and sharp lens even in today's standards and also excellent image quality and fast focus. Some other reviews though are saying that its too soft at corners and also at all the range at.f2.8..giving it average.scores

Any opinions? Is there any other similarly price alternative to consider?

Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 STM Canon EOS 5D Mark II Canon EOS 5D Mark III Canon EOS 6D
