The Canon-mount version of the lens is about 75% of the price of the E-mount version at the moment, and I already have an MC11 adaptor. Does anyone have experience of this combination?


I have this combo and it works well for my needs. Granted, my needs aren't particularly taxing (I shoot mainly landscapes and mainly with MF), so I can't really comment on AF speed, AF-C, etc. other than to say that AF-S works fine in my experience. IQ-wise, it's about the same as the Sony 16-35 f4 that I tried prior to this.

I'm sure you know this, but the 17-28mm FE is a different lens altogether. Honestly I wish Tamron had just made the 17-35 in E-mount, as now I'm undecided if I should give up the 28-35mm range in exchange for a native option with constant 2.8.
