Re: Tamron 17-28mm user experience

I had a Sony 16-35 F4 in 2015 and found it suprisingly good at 16mm wideopen across the frame (especially given how bad the 24-70 F4 was) and used ones can be had for quite a bit less than the Tamron .. if the Tamron ultra wide was the same price as the 28-75 then it`d be a different matter but at the price it is (UK) , I`d not even consider it .

I`m likely to go the prime route, the new 18mm Samyang is well under half the price of the Tamron , is wide enough for most things that don`t need ludicrously wide like a 12mm or so , is also F2.8 , compact and I never found the "long" end of ultra wide zooms to be up to much anyway, even expensive canon and nikon ones ..... otherwise I`d get another used  Sony 16-35 F4
