Just curious what were the issues you had? Focus fine tuning? I did the painstaking process of fine tuning all my Tamron lenses and some of the adjustments were like +17. Can definitely see issues with the fine tuning.

I went the other way and sold the Nikon for the Tamron because it was just too big I never took it anywhere. Haven’t gotten around to fine tuning it yet.

If you had to fine tune your lenses to +17, you should have returned them if you could, for another copy.   Mfg defect.     Most of my Nikon pro's were perfect, no fine tuning,  the rare ones that did, I returned them for another copy, which was than fine.

The Tamron isn't exactly light, it's nearly 900 grams,  only 170 grams lighter.
