    I'm stuck between the two, I shoot concerts, portraits, weddings etc. Which one do you think I should get?

    I've got the 28-75, among other things. It's my all purpose lens, and does a great job of it.

    The zoom.
    However that lens is not sharp until F4. It also does ok with macro so works for ring shots.
    Pick up a 50 1.8 for lower light opportunities.

    I currently own a 50mm 1.8 and 55-250mm, I feel its time to upgrade.

    The Tammy is a very good lens, I have a couple, the 17-50 2.8 is also a thought, might fit in with your needs. has some with to it but not much reach for portraits. the 28-75 2.8 is great for portraits. It is a give and take there.

    go with the Tamron. If you take the 100mm to a concert you will likely realise you will need to move around alot, but that likely wont be an option.
