Tamron 28-300mm f/3.5-6.3 overview

  • 1Description

The Tamron 28-300mm f/3.5-6.3 Di PZD Lens for Sony is a wide-angle to telephoto zoom lens for Sony A-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. And, included with the lens are a flower-shaped lens hood as well as front and rear lens caps.

    Tamron 28-300mm f/3.5-6.3 reviews

    28-300mm f/3.5-6.3 Di PZD Lens for Sony is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 15.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A versatile lens that is very good I had a stroke that left me with little use of my left hand. I now use my Sony A99 or A77II with a ProMaster pistol grip with my left hand, or a tripod. I had Sony G, Zeiss ZA, and Minolta lenses, but they were too heavy, and I found it difficult to change lenses in the field. So, I bought this lens as a compromise and sold my other lenses. As it turned out, the lens isn't as much of a compromise as I originally thought. The lens is small, but it gives very good sharpness and image quality. I only rate it as 4 stars because it is not as fast as the lenses that it replaced, but the image quality is nearly as good.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My SONY A99 Has A New Permanent Partner I waited a long time for the SONY mount for this lens. I wanted a versatile zoom that would allow me to use my full frame SONY A99 for practically any shot without having to change to a different lens. I'm a serious amateur, not a pro, and my camera has a wide ISO range and shoots pretty good photos at the higher ISO's so I'm not so concerned that this lens is not as fast as one of the lens it replaced. I have used it to photo my dogs running in a large field and for family photos with flash over the holidays. I'm very happy with the results in terms of sharpness and color saturation. And, as for video, this is the quietest lens I've found yet for auto focus (still not totally silent like my camcorder, but not bad). So far I have found nothing to dislike about this lens.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'M PLEASED! Thus far I am pleased with this lens, and, I can say that with conviction since I'm comparing it with its earlier version which I purchased some nine years ago. The earlier version did not render good images; I was never able to do critical focusing because the focusing ring was never tight and it made a scratching sound when you turned it, and the autofocus was noisy. Once, I was in a camera shop that had the same lens for sale - I asked to see it and it performed the same as mine (so that relieved me of the thought that it might be just my lens). So, I took a leap of faith and purchased the Di PZD lens: the images are WAY better (speaking unprofessionally), the focusing ring is tight meaning I can do critical focusing, and the auto focus is so quiet I have to rely on the beep in my viewfinder to know that the subject is in focus, and, it's fast. As I use this new lens more and more I'd like to update this review.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Nice Multipurpose Lens It kind of grinds my gears that Sony doesn't make this lens for full frame cameras. This is my first Tamron lens. I use this on my new Sony a99 II. So far, excellent results. This will be my go to lens for all around shooting.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from TAMRON 28-300 I have found this series of Tamron lenses to be among the most versatile and user-friendly affordable lenses available. Well-constructd and durable, the images are excellent quality throughout the range. The are not too heavy so you can carry them around and use them without a tripod. The are great for travelling.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for Travel I purchased this lens to use for travel. It is attached to my Sony a99. Macros at 300mm are good. Scenics from 28mm to 300mm are good and quality appears to be limited by my holding the camera steady and atmospherics. I used /f8 to f/11 for my pictures (Mammoth area including Mono Lake and Convict Lake). I have not tried the lens wide-open as I usually do not take low-light pictures. With the a99 I use manual focus to take advantage of the depth-of-focus preview. I have noticed any lens creep.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good value I am using this lens for my principal lens. It works well, but does not support the Sony Hybrid AF system. It does focus ok, but you cannot use all the camera AF features. Value seem good.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome all-around lens Love this lens. I use it on my Sony a99II. I would highly recommend it.
