Tamron 28-300mm f/3.5-6.3 overview

  • 1Description

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.

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 Nikon is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 29.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just What I Was Looking For 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great All Around Lense This Tamron lens has increased the quality of my photos very much. I also use it for film making and couldn't be happier. My camera body is very low quality and this lens removes the grainy quality in photos. Obviously you'll have to adjust your camera settings to get the right look, but this lens helps a lot. During filming the low light situations are not good, but with a better camera body I'm sure it will be better. Overall a great lens! Good Job Tamron, I'm a fan!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice and light but... I do like the size of this lens. It makes for a nice lightweight walk-around combo with my Nikon D610. Unfortunately I sent it back because it wasn't as sharp as Nikon's 28-300 which I kept after testing both of them side by side. Also, the Nikon version is a bit faster (f/5.6 vs f/6.3).Other than the Tamron images being a bit soft it was a nice lens and it is a few hundred dollars cheaper than the Nikon if you are on a budget. So, it is up to you to decide which is more important, price, weight or sharpness.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Pleased with this lens As a multipurpose all in one lens it does an excellent job. very sharp on the wide end and with sufficient light on the long end can be sharp there as well. Auto focus is quick, VC works very well. This was one of the lenses I took on a recent cruise,and was very pleased with the results. I was a little skeptical when I bought it, but I'm pleased to say it's exceeded my expectations.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great travel lens for full frame DSLR I travel a lot but sometimes to remote places where one is limited to small amounts of luggage and/or carryon. This lens is proven to be well suited to my needs and takes excellent photos throughout the entire zoom range 28-300 mm. It is smaller, lighter and less expensive than the OEM option. It is also claimed to be weather resistant and should work well with my weather resistant camera body.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My all around lens I am a semi pro photographer and I do a lot of travel photography. We travel all over the world and this is my go to lens, just because of the weight, the zoom and the range it can go. It does some amazing photos. I have other lens but when I am just out and about this is the one I always have on hand.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid Performer Best rating should be 4.5, but this lens is still the best performer at this price and weight savings. I have been using mine for a few months now, on my D750. I find the weight and range a saving grace. Love the sharpness wide open and since I shoot in raw, easy enough to add some post sharpenning if needed at the long end. I use this lens with 20mm and 85mm G lenses. Love to have a 40mm in this equation. Build is excellent for a super zoom despite its light weight. Optics are best in class for a full frame super zoom. Auto focus speed is really fast and accurate on 95% of my experiences lately. Have only 2-3 percent of hesitation or miss in extream lowest light conditions. I wouldn't ever trade this lens for range and weight unless the Nikon version proved to be that much better. But so far colors, contrast and control of abberations is as good as any super zoom at this price. Colors are also very close to Nikons almost indistingushable. if you want the lightest sharpest best bang for the buck, this is the lens on a D750. Honestly I can see this lens softer on a 36 megapixel body, so test first is recomended. Both images are at 300mm with limited sharpening (25) the standard in LR6.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good for its intended use. 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.
