Tamron 28-300mm f/3.5-6.3 overview

  • 1Description

The Tamron 28-300mm f/3.5-6.3 Di VC PZD Lens for Canon is a wide-angle to telephoto zoom lens for Canon EF-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 44.8-480mm. 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.

This lens features full-time manual focus capabilities

    Tamron 28-300mm f/3.5-6.3 reviews

    28-300mm f/3.5-6.3 Di VC PZD Lens for Canon is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 102.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice lens This is the first Tamron lens I have bought so there is always that hesitation. I have the Canon 28-300mm which I do use a lot but it is so heavy it is not always convenient. I was looking for a decent walk around lens that was light weight and compact to use for more casual shooting. This lens seemed like it would fit that. So far I have been very pleased with it. The shots have been sharp and clean. The only thing is that you need to keep the zoom lock on when not using it or the lens will slowly creep all the way out. But to be fair this happens with my Canon and Sigma lenses too so it is not a complaint just something to be aware of.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Much improved lens!! I have to agree with the previous reviewer about this lens. This lens (for me ) is great as a general walk around/vacation lens. While admittedly it is not in the same league as the Canon 28-300 in IQ, the same is also true in reference to price and weight. This lens in much improved in IQ over the previous iteration. I had the last version of this lens and it was soft all around, this lens is sharp with accurate AF. I'll definately be taking this lens on vacation with maybe a prime, if I have some special shots in mind. I'm figuring that this lens will handle at least 85 - 90% of the shot I'd be looking at when on vacation.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Turned my Canon 5D Mark iii into a point and shoot I bought this lens after receiving an endorsement email from Scott Kelby about being the perfect travel lens. I was hoping to substitute this for my 24-105 and 70-200 L glass lens when I travel. I tried it this weekend and can say that the images are a little too soft for my liking. I submit my images to contests and the sharpness of this lens just doesn't cut it. On the plus side, it is a light lens, so my hopes were up after opening the box. It is OK for street photography, but I tend to do more landscapes and environmental portraits. So, back it goes.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just got my lens Just got my lens yesterday,so I've only made about a 120 shots;my expectation have been exceeded.Figure it will take a few weeks to really master the lens, but I am very happy with the quality & range of the images from this lens. So far I have shot orchids,macros of flowers, spiders, lizards, landscapes,& even an indoor meeting without a flash.I admit I was worried with it being a new product, but my initial evaluation of this lens is very positive. Quality images @ an affordable price. This is definitely going to be my goto walk around lens for my Canon 5D MKll, I will also try it on my old Rebel when I'm on the water going for bird & scenery shots.It was worth the wait.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Economical all-purpose lens I bought the lens to have a lightweight walk-around lens that could handle landscapes and portrait shots. Using it with the 5D Mark II and 5D Mark III, this lens is great on blue-sky days. It takes great portraits and clear landscape photos. I agree with other reviewers that it is not as sharp (especially for rapidly moving subjects) as some Canon lenses, but it is also not as expensive or as heavy as the comparable Canon lenses. I have had no problems with lens creep; it has a good heft to it, feels solidly constructed for its long zoom range. I would not be using it for wildlife or bird photography, but this is a great lens for city shots and portraits.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This lens rocks Scott Kelby in a recent seminar recommended using only one body and one lens for travel as opposed to lugging around a ton of stuff. His suggestion was the previous generation 28-300 for full frame. When I went online to order I saw that Tamron was coming out with an updated version which was almost twice as expensive as the orignal. I decided to give it a try and boy am I glad I did. I use this lens on my Canon 6D full frame and it works beautifully. I also use it on my crop sensor 7D which has a multiplication factor or 1.6. and then it becomes a 45 to 460. I have several expensive L lenses and this one is either almost or just as good. It absolutely rocks. You will not be disappointed. Just buy it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Walk Around Lens I'm using this as as substitute for my Tamron 24-70 f/2.8 and Canon 70-300 L on my Canon 6D. It's really marvelous. It weighs much less than either of the other two. It is not as fast as either of the other two lenses. It is ever so slightly less sharp and has slightly more distortion. But wow, it is so light and easy to use, that I am grabbing more great shots than ever before. If I'm going to sit with a tripod for a fixed, predictable shot, I'm going to use one of the other more expensive lenses. But if I want to walk around and be ready for anything, this lens can't be beat. And it's slight short-comings are mostly correctable in Lightroom (the latest Lightroom version comes with this lens' profile already built in). I hardly ever feel like picking up the other two lenses any more.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Walk Around Lens This is a nice walk around lens. It is a bit soft, especially on the wide end, but it improves with auto-focus micro-adjustments. I normally shoot with Canon L lens so I'm used to a different quality in terms of sharpness, speed (both in f-stop and auto focusing), and build. However, for the money, this Tamron lens does a good job. I bought this lens to carry on a cruise where I didn't want to carry 3-heavy Canon L lens. For this purpose, this lens is hard to beat. If you can live with a light lens with great range, acceptable sharpness, slower auto-focusing and marginal performance in low light, then this lens might just be for you.
