Thanks for all your responses.

Hinman, I think u have just nailed it for me. I should really pair the Tamron 28-75 with a DA12-24. I should have thought of that. I love my DA14 but it is just wide with no zoom and in a lot of cases, I am swapping DA14 and Tamron on/off in the field and it is just too cumbersome. The DA12-24 will have the wide end of the DA14 and yet gives me the zoom from 15mm to 24mm. Perfect!

Looks like I will be adding another zoom lens to my collection.
