Tamrons worth full price?

Recently picked up a Sony A7RII for a good price. Now I'm debating which lens to get with it.

Up here in Canada, my options are:

Tamron 28-75 (full price, no discounts or used deals) (i.e. $900 USD)

Sony 24-70 f/4 (used is about half the price of the Tamron) (i.e. $450 USD)

Sony 28-70 (used is about only 15% the price of a Tamron). (i.e. $150 USD)

There is also the Sony 24-105 for higher than the Tamron even used (i.e. $1200 USD).

There is also the Sony 16-35 f/4 (i.e. about $950 USD).

I've read spectacular reviews for Tamron, but wonder if it is not quite wide enough.

I'm tempted by the Tamron 28-75 and (eventually Tamron 17-28 (not available here), and call it a day.  But would I be better served picking up used Sony lenses at less than retail prices?
