Heck, I can do you one better. I sometimes go out with just a Tamron 
28-200/3.8-5.6 asp on an OM, clearly further down on the optical 
performance totem pole than the 28-105/2.8. It does win the do the most 
in the smallest, lightest package award, though. And amazingly enough, 
it takes some pretty fine images. My TOPE 17 entry 
<http://www.tope.nl/tope_show_entry.php?event=17&pic=34> (same TOPE you 
cite.) is of about 16% of a 35mm neg taken hand held at 200mm with this 
lens, so it ain't a piece of crap lens, either.

Of course the 28-105 is a good lens.

And that wonderful shot is about 98% photographer and 2% lens!
