Home Gear

Tamron has created several highly popular lenses over the last couple of years, offering great performance at highly competitive prices. They recently released the 28-200mm f/2.8-5.6 Di III RXD for Sony E mount, which seeks to offer every focal length a photographer could need all in one optic at a very affordable price. This helpful video review shows what you can expect from the lens in practice.

Coming to you from The Snap Chick, this helpful video takes a look at the Tamron 28-200mm f/2.8-5.6 Di III RXD lens. The 28-200mm comes with a minimum focusing distance of 7.5″ for an impressive maximum magnification of 0.32x, specialized elements to reduce aberrations and improve sharpness and contrast, weather-resistant construction, fluorine coating for reducing dirt and oil accumulation, a RXD (Rapid eXtra-silent stepping Drive) autofocus motor with full-time manual override, and a rounded seven-blade diaphragm for smoother bokeh. Undoubtedly, at $720 and with an impressive combination of quality and versatility, the 28-200mm f/2.8-5.6 Di III RXD looks to be another winner for Tamron, particularly for shooters who don’t want to carry around the extra weight of multiple lenses.

Check out the video above for the full rundown.
