Re: Tamron 17-28mm user experience

Bought a Tamron 17-28mm. Was not happy with corner performance and it was slightly decentered or tilted. So I tried the Sigma which turned out to be a stellar performer, sharp corner to corner wide open at all focal lenghts. Best UW zoom I've ever had by clear margin.

The Tamron wins in most aspects in my opinion: size, weight, cost, the ability to use filters and autofocus performance. But Sigma wins on IQ and in my copies the difference was quite clear and big enough that I went with the Sigma and returned the Tamron. For me the zoom range on the Sigma also fits better in my kit.
