Tamron 28-75mm F2.8 Di III RXD Lens Review (Opticallimits): “good and light-weight option”


Klaus Schroiff has just posted a full review of the newly announced Tamron 28-75mm F2.8 Di III RXD lens for Sony FE mount at the opticallimits.com. He tested this new lens on Sony a7R II and found it “good and light-weight option” .


ISO Speed 160 Focal Length 75.0mm Aperture: f/2.8 Exposure 1/2000s


ISO Speed 400 Focal Length 75.0mm Aperture: f/2.8 Exposure 1/2500s

Below is the conclusion:

It is easy to spot why the Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8 Di III RXD is so popular. There is, of course, the moderate price tag combined with the fast max. aperture which sets it apart from Sony offerings….

The build quality is on a very decent consumer-grade level. We are not convinced that the smooth finish will stand the test of time without scratches but out-of-the-box it certainly looks good (albeit a bit long-ish). An annoyance is the tendency of the rubberized zoom ring to function as a dust-magnet in no time. ..

If you can’t or don’t want to afford the Sony FE 24-70mm f/2.8 GM but still want an f/2.8 standard zoom lens, the Tamron is a good and light-weight option IF you can live with the rather moderate 28mm setting at the wide-end.
