I had the Tamron 17-28 a few weeks ago, I returned as I did not like build quality.

The photos were ok, a few out of focus but generally good.

Nice lens to use but it felt very 'plasticky' and cheap (which it is not).

I now have the 16-35 f4 Sony which I really like.

When I used to spend more time on forums than I do these days, I remember there used to be reports of poor QC with the Sony 16-35 f4. It seems less of an issue now (?) but it still puts me off buying one.

Also have nagging doubt that f4 could be just too slow. I know that it's possible to use high ISO much more comfortably on the more recent bodies but lower ISO is still preferable.

I appreciate good build quality so I know where your coming from Thanks for the suggestion!
