Thanks, very interesting! After downloading and pixel peaking on the full size RAW-files I am not so sure if I want that lens any more, but that's just me being so spoiled by the 16-55f2.8 and 70-300 combo. The lens gives a fantastic range otherwise and allows an RX10III/IV like use of the A6###

Hi Dirk, I know what you mean.

I have mixed feelings about the lens, based on these samples. Would really need to see different samples from other sources first before making a final decision.

I also wonder if the APSC lens isnt playing as nice with the crop mode of the A7RIV. The official Tamron samples taken with an a6600 did seem better quality to me.

Further investigation required.

Yes, Mario, I will also closely follow up, because I so want to like this lens The A7RIV should normally offer even better results than the A6600 because it doesn't have the low pass filter and higher resolution in the crop.
