Thanks a lot! There is quite a big size difference between these lenses. We do know why (aperture, range, adapter). This is not an easy choise between these lenses. Cannot wait to see also side-by-side IQ comparison from landscapes.

When I handled RP in the shop, I also was thinking that the added grip would be needed, while using longer/heavier lenses. R is fine as it is.

The positive surprise here is that the Tamron doesn't feel heavier despite being bigger.

That is a surprise, given that the Tamron with the control ring adapter comes in at almost 900 grams compared to the Canon at 700 grams.

I guess it comes down to the focal range one uses more often. Is the 24-35 range more important or the 105-135 range? For a two-lens solution, would one rather carry an extra wideangle zoom or a telephoto zoom?

I must however say that the Tamron mounted on the R looks ugly. This is of course entirely subjective and will not affect the quality of the pictures ones takes with it. But it is ugly.

I often shoot with the R and RP. I can use a 24mm prime on the RP for landscape and wide angle shots, while the R gives me flexibility in the 35 to 150 range. Therefore this is an easy decision for me to make. I might eventually sell my 24-105mm.

You're right that it's not a sexy combo. But oh boy together they can make gorgeous images.
