My opinion; 24-105 and a set of primes. I ended up selling the Tamron.

That 2.8 aperture isn’t as good as it is with primes. And that Tamron reach and range isn’t as good as the Sony. If you only pair it with one prime, get the 55 1.8.

This exactly explains why the choice is up to you. I find I never used the 55/1.8, but the Tamron was better doubling as a walk around + portrait/indoors lens. I sold the 55 to keep the 28-75 and 24-105 (I hope to sell one when I can decide which).

I love my 55 1.8, I just bought the tamron 28-75 to use as my main travel lens, not too big, lightweight & f2.8, not to mention I got it for a steal £615 from amazon SARL

The 4mm at the wide end doesn't bother me as I currently have the Batis 18 & will be getting the Tamron 17-28 when its released in a few months time

Just looking to add a 35mm f1.4 for low light stuff & that will most likely be the Samyang
