Tamron 28-200mm F2.8-5.6 Di III RXD Lens Review: the Best All-In-One E-Mount Lens!

Thepixelconnection has just posted a full review of the newly announced Tamron 28-200mm F2.8-5.6 Di III RXD Lens (Amazon/ B&H/ Adorama) for Sony FE mount. It is the Best All-In-One E-Mount Lens, even better than Sony FE 24-240mm f/3.5-6.3 OSS Zoom Lens. You can buy it for your hiking tours. This new lens costs $729 and will start shipping on June 25, 2020. 

Below is his conclusion, “Having used Tamron’s other zooms and primes for Sony E-Mount, the RXD motor is a great choice by Tamron. The autofocus is quick and accurate, much like the 28-75, and considerably faster than the OSD motor found in the trio of prime lenses. Close focus capabilities are impressive, with a minimum focus distance of just 7.5” on the wide end (about 2” from the front element), and 31.5” at 200mm. The compact and lightweight design made it easy to carry around all day to take a variety of photographs without having to carry a camera bag. While the lens doesn’t have built in stabilization, the majority of Sony bodies have IBIS which should help greatly.

Eye-AF worked great for both people and animals, even in lower light conditions, as did the other AF modes. Like most recent lenses with focus by wire manual focus, the ring can feel a bit loose, but manually focusing isn’t too difficult. 

Chromatic aberration is considerably less present than Sony’s 24-240mm, and overall sharpness is a step above it as well, especially in the corners.

While it may not appeal to all professionals, the 28-200mm f/2.8-5.6 is bound to be a hit with entry-level photographers, travel photographers, and those looking for a lens that covers a large focal range without breaking the bank…”
