Feedbacks On Tamron 17 – 28
It offers very good/excellent performances at 2,5 times less the price of the Sony FE 16-35 mm F2.8 GM
Bokeh and color rendition are very good and similar to the 16-35 GM
Sharpness is very good to excellent and similar to the 16-35GM. The Sony 16-35mm is however better at 24/28mm at F2.8 in the corners (only visible on 42 / 61 Mpix )
Just keep on visiting Amazon and try your luck if you can get the lens.
