I have this lens and use it on my a7II and a6300. I found it to be sharper than the Sony 24-70 in my applications.
I also have the Tamron 17-28. Now I understand they are introducing a 70-180 f/2.8 in E mount.

The three constant f/2.8 E-mount lenses from Tamron just might be everything that a photographer needs - except for special uses: perhaps a fast portrait lens in the 85mm f/1.8 or 1.4 range and a super telephoto if sports or wildlife is the object. Although a macro might be nice, the 28-75mm provides very nice close-up capability. Unless you do a LOT of actual macro work, the 28-75mm with the possible addition of an extension tube set may be enough for most folks... Some folks might want even a wider lens or a faster f/1.4 or so lens for low light work...

However, I shoot with both A7iii and a couple of APSC cameras and I am very happy with four lenses - two full frame and two APSC... Tamron 28-75mm, Sony 85mm f/1.8, full frame lenses (which I use on both full frame and crop cameras and Sony 70-350mm f.4,5-6.3 (although I wish this were at least f/5.6 at maximum focal length) and the 12mm f/2.0 Rokinon... Plus a handful of cheap and fun to use Legacy lenses.

I also have a fast Sigma 30mm f/1.4 lens and a Sony 70-200mm f/4 G OSS lens which I will most likely sell after the COVID-19 scare gets over - If it ever does...
