Tamron SP AF 17-50mm f/2.8 Vs Tokina AT-X 235 AF Pro AF 20-35mm f/2.8

Hi All,

I have the Tokina AT-X 235 AF Pro AF 20-35mm f/2.8 and the range is what's i am missing in this lens.

Will there be any advantages of Tamron 17-50 f/2.8 over this lens. I know these are not the same lenses.

If the 20-35mm doesn't offer enough range then, yes, the 17-50 will cover more range and thus be more useful.

That is very much the point, range. If you are aps-c shooter tamron will give to you lot more. But on FF tamron will not work so well. I have 235 pro. But for K-3 I bought DA*16-50 to have wider range. It has also more contrast and sharpness..not to forget closer focus.
