  • Four Low Dispersion Glass Elements
  • Three Molded-Glass Aspherical Elements

The Tamron 28-300mm f/3.5-6.3 Di VC PZD Lens for Nikon is a wide-angle to telephoto zoom lens for Nikon F-mount full-frame and APS-C cameras. It provides users with an extremely versatile all-purpose lens in a compact design and on APS-C cameras it has a zoom range equivalent of 42-450mm. Also, it has an aperture range from f/3.5-6.3 to f/22-40 across the zoom range.

The 28-300mm is also capable of decent macro capabilities with a reproduction ratio of 1:3.5 when zoomed in to 300mm. This is due to a minimum focus distance of 19.3". Also, for excellent image quality, numerous special glass elements are used in the lens design in addition to Broad-Band Anti-Reflection coatings. There are one Hybrid Aspherical element, three Molded-Glass elements, four Low Dispersion elements, one Extra Refractive Index element, and one Ultra-Extra Refractive Index element.

For general use, there is a Piezo Drive autofocus system which is powered by a fast and quiet standing-wave ultrasonic motor. This allows you to quickly achieve focus for sharp images. There is also Vibration Compensation which provides optical image stabilization that reduces camera shake at slow shutter speeds and longer focal lengths. And, included with the lens are a flower-shaped lens hood as well as front and rear lens caps.

        Comments about Tamron 28-300mm f/3.5-6.3 Di VC PZD Lens for Nikon:

        Compact and light weight, it is a very good lens for its intended use. Although it lacks the crispness and high contrast produced by its much more expensive younger siblings, the Tamron SP 24-70/f2.8 and SP 70-200/f2.8 Di VC USD, it produces good, sharp pictures for travel use, and it is easy to lug around the neck all day long without having to change lenses. The speed is slow though, but it is expected and no surprise here. That is the only draw back I noticed. Although I have been a Nikon shooter for decades, this is definitely a good addition when all I want is capturing casual shots when traveling.

        Comments about Tamron 28-300mm f/3.5-6.3 Di VC PZD Lens for Nikon:

        This is the only lens I leave on my Dfx now. Fast focusing and very clear images. While it could be a little faster, I almost always use flash for fill so I don't notice the spped that much. Ergonomically this lens is easy to handle and fast to zoom in and out. I'd recommend this to anyone.

        Comments about Tamron 28-300mm f/3.5-6.3 Di VC PZD Lens for Nikon:

        I have tested this lens, outdoors only. The images may not be as sharp as my Tamaron SP 24-70mm F/2.8 Di VC USD Lens (which is probably the sharpest zoom lens at this time) but it is good enough and with the circular diaphragm of this lens you get a softer Bokeh. it is very light and almost half the size and weight of the Tamron SP 24-70mm F/2.8 Di VC USD Lens. Auto focus is very fast and quiet and to sum it up: it is great for travelling and with 28-300 mm focal length it is a very good Swiss Army Knife of lenses.

            This is what I was waiting for! Picked up a new D610 and really wanted to have one all around lens! The Nikon version was 2 times the weight! This is a breath of fresh air to my D610! So far loving it! Crisp images great color and love it! No more swapping lens for me !Plus weather sealed! Great Job Tamron!

              As a general purpose, zoom lens, the Tamron 28-300mm is hard to beat. Not only is it less expensive than the Nikon equivalent, it's equal in quality and, most important, it's nearly ⅓ lighter. If you're using it as a traveling lens, the difference in weight alone is a compelling reason to consider this lens.

                  For my D610 I love the overall quality of Tamron's 24-70 f2.8, but really missed being able to take one lighter do-everything lens for travel and this fits the bill just fine. Naturally it can't match the pop of the 24-70 or Nikon 70-200 f4, but it is more than adequate. Nice and sharp except at the 300 end, but just as good image quality as the other all-in-ones I've tried. I was a little surprised at how smooth and constant the zooming is after a little break-in and the bokeh is very nice! I do also like Tamron's more subtle branding. All around, a nice buy.
