Tamron 28-300mm f/3.5-6.3 Di PZD Overview

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.

question

How does this lens compare to the older Tamron AF 28-300mm F/3.5-6.3 XR Di LD (gold ring model)?
Asked by: Calvin Y.
This is a great all purpose lens, it takes sharp images. I use this lens on both of my Sony a900 and Sony a99. It can be used on a full frame camera or APS -C. it's not ideal for low light pictures, keep an eye on your IS0 and you'll do fine.I am a professional photographer and I can tell you that I will be using this lens for weddings!

question

I just purchased a Sony a7Rll camera. Is this lens compatible with it? Or does it require an adaptor?
Asked by: Anonymous
An adapter such as the Sony A-Mount to E-Mount Lens Adapter (Black) B&H # SOLAEA3 is required in order for the lens to autofocus on the Sony A7R II as well as offer full exposure control. Please see the image below for reference.

question

Does this Tamron zoom lens relay focal length selected to the camera body? I am using this lens on the Sony a7 with Sony LA-EA4 adapter. I want to use the Sony Playmemories Lens Compensation App. For the lens compensation app to work with a zoom lens the camera must know what focal length is selected on the lens.
Asked by: John
I use this Tamron lens on an a99 body. I do not see the focal length shown in the viewfinder or on the LCD. The focal length should be included in the metadata.

question

Autofoco speed in A99 ? For wedding or sports. macro can do?
Asked by: Mauro Lucio A.
I use the Tamrom 28-300 in my Sony a7R. The autofocus speed is pretty decent. I have used this lens in weddings as well sports events. Im also using it now more for macro. This lens is very versatile but it has a lot of limitations, like fringing, color aberration, noise and is not really sharp. Not for professional use but great for amateur stuff. Using Photoshop and Lightroom or other photo enhancement program is a must.

question

Is this lens (Tamron 28-300mm for Sony) compatible with the Sony A7S cameras?
Asked by: Dimitrios
You would need the LEA-4 adapter. With that it works well and will auto focus. You do lose image stabilization as the A7S has no in body stabilization. Unless you also have A mount cameras you would be better off getting the new Sony FE 24-240mm lens. The 24-240 lens has image stabilization. It is a much heavier lens than the 28-300. I own both. I have not owned the 24-240 long enough to compare them, though my first impression of the lens is good.
