Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8 overview

  • 1Description

Blending a sleek form-factor with a versatile working range, the 28-75mm f/2.8 Di III RXD from Tamron is a full-frame-compatible lens for Sony E-mount mirrorless cameras. Spanning wide-angle to portrait-length, a constant f/2.8 maximum aperture complements this range and affords increased control over depth of field along with enhanced low-light performance. The optical design incorporates a series of low dispersion and aspherical elements, which produce a highly corrected image with reduced spherical and chromatic aberrations for improved sharpness and clarity. Elements also feature Tamron's BBAR coating, which suppresses flare and ghosting for greater contrast and color fidelity when working in backlit and harsh lighting conditions. Benefitting the optical design is an RXD stepping motor, which enables quick, near-silent autofocus performance to suit stills and video, along with full-time manual focus override and a minimum focusing distance of 7.5". Suiting this lens's use in harsh climates, it also sports a moisture-resistant construction along with a fluorine-coated front element to protect against fingerprints and smudging.

Versatile standard zoom is designed for full-frame Sony E-mount mirrorless cameras, however can also be used with APS-C models where it will provide a 42-112.5mm equivalent focal length range.
Bright constant f/2.8 maximum aperture affords consistent brightness throughout the zoom range and offers improved control over depth of field.
One XLD (eXtra Low Dispersion) element and one LD (Low Dispersion) element greatly reduce color fringing and chromatic aberrations throughout the zoom range in order to realize improved clarity and color accuracy.
Two hybrid aspherical elements and one molded glass aspherical element minimize distortions and spherical aberrations in order to produce greater sharpness and accurate rendering.
BBAR (Broad-Band Anti-Reflection) Coating has been applied to individual elements in order to suppress internal reflections, flare, and ghosting to achieve greater contrast and color fidelity when working in strong lighting conditions.
RXD (Rapid eXtra-silent stepping Drive) autofocus motor delivers impressively quiet, quick, and smooth focusing performance to suit both stills and video applications. This focusing system also offers a minimum focusing distance of just 7.5"and a 1:2.9 maximum magnification for working with close-up subjects. Full-time manual focus override is also possible and it is compatible with Sony's Direct Manual Focus function or fine-tuned manual control.
A moisture-resistant construction benefits this lens' use in inclement conditions, and a fluorine coating has also been applied to the front lens element to protect against dust, dirt, and smearing.
Rounded nine-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality.

    Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8 reviews

    28-75mm f/2.8 Di III RXD Lens for Sony E is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost perfect. This lens is absolutely gorgeous. Minus some vignetting, a stiff zoom, and the focal ring being behind the zoom for some reason, it's a pretty great lens. At the time of writing this, Tamron released this first roung with a pretty awful bug -- the focus doesn't work sometimes. Not just the AF, but in manual as well. Apparently this will be fixed in an upcoming firmware update through the camera. It can usually be fixed by turning the camera on in photo mode first and/or re-attaching the lens, but still. Pretty big error on Tamron's part. And hopefully the bug is fixed immediately. If not, I will be returning it. I hope it doesn't come to that.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Selling my GM Ive been shooting with this lens for the last 2 days, on actual photoshoots and it has been flawless. I actually listed my GM on ebay after the first day. Sharpness has been truely amazing. Shooting on a A7R3. I compared it to my GM and couldnt justify keeping the GM. The Tamron for my use it a better lens with better autofocus speed and 99% the same sharpness? REPLY

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great lens but.... Lets face it, for the price of this lens it is amazing. The pictures are sharp, it has great colors, and the constant aperture makes it a no brainer. One thing that concerns me is the focusing issue. I experienced it when recording my daughters show and throughout her concert i had to attach and reattach the lens. I dont know if this is something tamron can fix through firmware so i will return mine and pick up another copy as soon as the fix is proven to work as this is a great all around lens, and a perfect lens for those looking for this range without spending the gm money.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great lens-- great price I could go on and on about the positive aspects of this lens-- weight, size, PRICE, speed... it is truly great. The only hiccup I had was trying to shoot something in low-light. The AF was not detecting anything and I couldn't seem to nail it on manual either. Been reading about how a new firmware update should be out soon, so hopefully that little issue will be solved

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW! For the price this thing can't be beat. I've had the 28-75 since launch date and its an almost perfect lens other than few caveats and one kinda major issue that will be fixed soon. The lens is very sharp, sharper than my 24-105 F4 Sony lens which is also a very sharp lens. There are a few major selling points and #1 is the price. This thing is a 1/3 the price of Sony's G-Master 24-70 which I'll be comparing this thing to very soon on my YT channel. #2 is the size and weight. You just can't compare. Having it be 28mm on the long end really helps out and this lens is perfectly balanced on an a7iii (which a lot of people will be pairing it with) and other E mount cameras. I did an hands on review (Just search for Max Yuryev 28-75 on youtube) and compared it a bit to the 24-105. When the autofocus worked (which was most of the time) it was spot on and lightning quick. All the focus points and features work great. I did have the AF not function a few times, and it required the camera to be restarted. This seems to be possible if you're turning on your camera in movie mode but in photo modes its fine. Tamron now knows about this glitch and will release a firmware update. The only other thing I don't love is the zoom ring being in front of the focus ring. It's not an issue if you don't have many zooms lenses but if you are constantly swapping between a Sony lens and this one if does get a bit annoying. I did get used to it mostly after a while but that would depend on you. The only real negative is the barrel distortion on the wide end. It definitely worse than the 24-105 at 28mm. This is an easy fix for photos and also possible for video. The good thing when shooting video is you're not using the corners in the 16x9 video framing so its less noticable. Overall for the price I highly recommend it, and will soon do a detailed comparison with my 24-105 as well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from You won't regret it I'm an enthusiast photographer, so most of my photos are not for clients, but for the occasional gigs that I do take (family photos), I would not hesitate to bring this lens on the shoot.� IQ is very high, it is sharp, nice colors, lightweight, reliable fast and responsive AF that will not break a sweat when doing candids of the kids.� I have an A7RIII and I have been using the Sigma 24-105 (MC-11) for wider shots, but honestly, this lens will probably take over that role because of the faster aperture and better low-light AF and also much smaller profile.� Still love you 24-105--you are pure magic at 105mm (I don't want it to get jealous). Elephant in the room: the weird focus bug that was reported by some youtubers.� I haven't experienced it.� That said, the demonstrations were in real time, so I do not doubt that the bug exists; I just haven't encountered it.� This is probably because I do not shoot much video.� Either way, Tamron said they will fix the issue here pretty quickly with a firmware update, so I am not worried.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth every penny for my needs! (Mounted on an original a7s) It's not 100% perfect - definitely has a good (but easily correctable) amount of distortion and I did get a weird error message when I unintentionally fired a burst, with an almost dead battery, using a shutter release mode I usually don't use, one time (might actually be the issue the firmware update is addressing)... But that one anomaly aside (out of maybe 500 shots so far), it's probably the best image quality and low light performance versus portability you could ask for at a very attractive price (I had convinced myself it would be $1,200 before it was officially announced). And with a zoom range that covers both my primes and then some (35/50). The only REAL problem is, when is that a7sIII announcement coming!
