uhhh, no.

Tamron's current stuff is absolutely top notch. Their 28-75 definitely hangs with anything, it's very good. Batis is overpriced and bloated from the start, you can say that about most zeiss branded sony lenses. The 24-70 f4 za is trash compared to the Tamron.....

Zeiss 16-35 is ok, not top tier.
I'm not saying Tamron is incapable of releasing good lenses. But they are mostly known for a budget glass that is mediocre in image quality. Zeiss, like any other glass manufacturer has their duds too. Agree on 24-70 F4 - that was one of the if not the worst full size zoom lens in the Sony E-mount lineup. But their primes are usually very good. And yes, they are overpriced, especially right after introduction. But I mostly buy on a used market and there prices are much more inline with the quality of the lens you get.
Now that Sony released their excellent 24mm f/1.4 GM, Batis 25mm is dropping in price and we will see more of these types of discounts in the future. At $900 with two free filters the price is very close to what you can get on the used market. So here you have an opportunity to buy an excellent lens in brand new condition with full warranty for a price of a slightly used lens.

Quote from Dimitris
:
IQ wise, nothing really leaped forward after the a6000. The newer a6xxx series have improvements in AF, Video & Hi-ISO because of better processors, but under most conditions, I doubt people can tell stills apart from them in a blind test: the a6000 is still one of the best APS-C cameras there are.

Now, I would personally not choose a large, mediocre fast prime designed for FF for this body, but this has nothing to do with the potential IQ. I'd rather compromise IQ or max aperture a bit to get something more portable and inconspicuous, which typically is also cheaper.

The "overkill" - IMHO - comes from the fact that this 25mm is a "big momma", not that it is "wasted" on a a6000. YMMV
I have a FE 28mm on my a6000, I'm pretty happy so i guess i should just focus on maximizing my gear before i buy new lenses or a FF sony camera

What lens does everyone recommend for street photography? I have the tamron 28-75 mm zoom and the Sony 85mm. Would love something to capture the wide. Or wait for the new tamron zoom?

Good (but expensive) choices are:
Tokina 20mm f/2 (very good but AF is noisy, making it bad for video), SONY 24 f/1.4 (the best optically, but expensive & hard to get), and this Zeiss 25 f/2. Zeiss is the lightest & smallest and has no weak spots (corners are great, AF is the best of 3, colors are the best as well). And Zeiss is actually 23mm lens. So, unless you need wider (Tokina), brighter (Sony f/1.4), Zeiss is still the best choice IMO. Samyang makes 24mm pancake but it's horrible in corners and is actually more like 25-26mm lens.

Depends if course on what camera you have. Assuming it's a full frame, get Sony 35mm f/2.8. It's a marvelous little gem that disappears on your camera and a perfect street lens. And if you want zoom, get one of the best latest Sony lenses in 24-105 f/4. Very sharp even wide open with great contrast and quick silent AF. With Sony full frame cameras I have no problem shooting at f/4 even in the very dark places due to low noise high ISO results I am getting.
