I'm not a Tamron girl, but the reviews look pretty good on this lens:  https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1461529-REG/tamron_a046_17_28mm_f_2_8_di_iii.html/reviews#customerReview

I'm just posting this to see what comments other give on it.  I don't have any questions, just trying to determine if I want to buy it or not.  

Canon 7D, 18-55mm, 55-250mm, 70-200mm L f/2.8, 100mm and 17-55mm f/2.8

I don't own this one. My first full frame lens was the Tamron 28-75, and I remain happy with it to this day.

The problem with Tamron is (for some lenses) consistency. It used to be possible to get a lemon; maybe it still is. But they're perfectly capable of creating a very nice lens.

If this is a candidate, and you order one, use it right away to decide if it works well for you, meets your needs, and isn't a dud. If it fails those criteria, return it.
