Re: Tamron 28-75 2.8 or Sony 85mm 1.8

I also have both. My gear set is quite the same with you three months ago LOL. (I have a7ii and Zeiss 35mm at that time)

I purchased the 85mm first and was really impressed by the sharpness of this lens.

I then purchased the Tamron lens. And since it covered 35mm f/2.8, so I tested the sharpness against Zeiss and find the differences are hardly noticeable. Therefore I sold the Zeiss.

Personally, I would recommend Tamron if you can only buy one lens. But if you decided to sell your Zeiss 35mm I'd say get both. 85 for portrait and Tamron for events. And if you miss the compact design, maybe you can get a Samyang version, it is on sale for $249 now (brand new), much cheaper than the Zeiss.
