it is true normhead. majority of my walkaround lens would be outdoor.
But if you're walking around as it gets dark,
or when it's a really dull day,
then that f/2.8 is handy outdoors as well!

I can only comment on the 17-50mm Tamron. The performance is very good, except that the focus plane curves severely at the wide end. That's a known design flaw, so it's not the first choice for taking photos of brick walls, especially at wider apertures.

Im looking to buy a tamron 17-50mm f/2.8. But im hearing alot of good things about the tamron 28-75mm f/2.8. I just need an everyday walkaround lens. Please your advice is needed. Thanks and have a great weekend.
what you really need is a lens you will only find secondhand, and then only rarely, and that's the FA24-90. Much better, IMHO, than the average rating on the database suggests.
