Any thoughts on surprisingly good but economically priced glass?

I love the Minolta 28-135mm lens for walkabout but it’s so often too narrow for my needs.

Is there any notable wide lenses that don’t break the bank?
I’m considering a used Tamron 10-24 mm f3.5-4.5

Thanks, was that on a FF body or on APS-C?
FF. A9II I like is so much that I’ve just ordered the 70-180 2.8

was considering the Sony 2.8 version but at Hal the weight, half the cost and in some reviews similar IQ and similar to better AF it seemed like a worthwhile gamble. I don’t plan on building a big Sony prime kit so this should be a very useful addition.
