Re: Tamron 17-28 F2.8 vs Zeiss 16-35 F4

I’ve owned both lenses.  The 17-28 is excellent, in my opinion.  For me the decision came down to whether I would find myself making frequent lens changes to cover the 28-35 range.   I found i shoot more often at 24 instead of 35 so I purchased the Tamron.  And I thought the 16-35 was good but wasn’t better than the Tamron.  The 16-35 GM was just to big.  I now travel with the Tamron 17-28 and 28-200 on vacation.
