PhotographyBlog's conclusion;

The new Tamron 17-28mm F2.8 Di III RXD is a fantastic lens in its own right and a great partner for the popular Tamron 28-75mm - the two lenses are a very affordable way to shoot at F2.8 on Sony Alpha full-frame cameras.

As with the 28-75mm lens, the Tamron 17-28mm F2.8 Di III RXD isn't the best wide-angle zoom lens available for Sony full-frame mirrorless cameras - that title probably goes to the Sony GM 16-35mm optic - but it is currently the best wide-angle zoom lens in terms of its cost to performance ratio.

Indeed, it even outshines the excellent Tamron 28-75mm, offering better image quality when shooting wide-open at F2.8 throughout the zoom range, whilst being even lighter and more compact thanks to using the same polycarbonate construction as its sibling.

Tamron have hit another home run with the 17-28mm F2.8 Di III RXD, and we can't wait to see what they can offer in the F2.8 telephoto zoom department...
