I don't have either of the Tamrons (I do have a 70-300 Tammy), but have the DA 16-45. It's a great lens, I take pictures indoors without flash and outdoors in full sun trying to freeze the wings of bumblebees at 1/2000 sec shutter speed. It's plenty wide for me, with just a bit of fish-eye effect wide-open.

It's more reliable than the FA 100 Macro for some of those insect shots, particularly continuous shoot mode.

I really haven't had much problem being too dark, I'll often shoot Tv mode with a wide ISO range.

You'll like that lens a lot if you get it. It's well worth the money I spent.
