Why not something like this? Or is the allure of the dark side too strong?
Got turned off with Tamron lenses when I got a 28-75/2.8 which, a year later experienced fungus problems A friend of mine also purchased a 28-75/2.8 and has TWICE had to have it cleaned because of fungus (second cleaning came a little over a year after the first!). There are a couple of used Tamron lenses being sold in a local website but (surprise, surprise), both are already showing fungus growth. I am convinced that tamron scrimped on lens coatings and rubber bushings which make their lenses susceptible to fungus growth in humid places like here.

My Voigt 58/1.4 SLII had six moisture spots inside which were there for over a year until I decided to have the lens throroughly cleaned. Well, the technician told me that these moisture dots are what start to turn to fungus. Luckily for the Voigt, it's lens coatings are excellent, and the moisture dots never got to form into fungus

Anyway, you can't compare the color rendition of a Voigt to a Tamron

Oh my... that bokeh + those processing styles are really a great combo!

So I'll stick with the more economical 90/3.5.
You'd better hurry then!


Also: after-action report. I got the lens a couple days ago and it's just like I anticipated. A bit soft in the corners before stopping down and it has some complex distortions on film (just barrel near the center with APS-C but it moves to pincushion at the edges of the film frame. Fantastic stopped down/mechanical quality/flare control/etc though. I think I'll be happy with this.
