Tamron 28-200mm f/2.8-5.6 Di III RXD Overview

Offering the unique mixture of an all-in-one zoom range and a fast design, the 28-200mm f/2.8-5.6 Di III RXD from Tamron is a wide-to-super-tele zoom distinguished by its bright f/2.8 maximum aperture at the wide end of the zoom, along with its sleek and portable design. A series of specialized elements are used to maintain high sharpness and clarity throughout the zoom range. 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.

All-in-one 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 42-300mm equivalent focal length range.
Bright f/2.8-5.6 maximum aperture range suits working in available lighting conditions, especially when working at the wide-angle end of the expansive zoom range.
A series of specialized elements control a variety of aberrations in order to achieve high sharpness and clarity.
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 1:3.1 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 seven-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality.
Zoom Lock switch keeps the lens in its retracted position when not in use.

Tamron 28-200mm f/2.8-5.6 Di III RXD Reviews

Good not great

I miss a little bit the image stabilization of my Sony 70-200 but this lense is still nice enough, I took it to the Amazonas and had a great performance there.

I love it

After research, it is exceptionally sharp and has a nice focal range.

Super versatile with great image quality

This lens should be everyone's must have. It is by far the most versatile sony E mount lens in the market. Only wishes are: 1. it would be better if it starts at 24 instead of 28 2. larger aperture (I may be too greedy)

By James

While I have only had the lens for a few weeks, it hasn't been off the camera since I got it. Its range covers almost anything I'd do albeit not with same level of quality that my 20mm f1.8 and 85mm f1.8 G lenses perhaps but I'm hard pressed to see any real differences. While my others lenses would be used for specific occasions, this lens is the best travel option for the money. For that reason alone, I would recommend it to any one in the market for such a lens.

Perfect travel lens

I rented this lens and the Tamron 18-300 prior to purchasing this 28-200. This lens is fantastic! I wanted one lens for when I travel and this lens fits the bill. I thought the 18-300 would but it was a little too big and the images from 300mm were not sharp. The images from the 28-200 are sharp across all focal lengths. Check out some of my sample images. Zoom in on the lighthouse top and you will see the woman's should er tattoo. And then check out the details of the eyes on the girl with the hat.

Best Single Telephoto For Sony Full-Frame

By Glenn
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-07-31

I recently bought a Sony A7Riv and thought the Sony 24-240 telephoto would work great with it. I already had the Sony lens and had been using it on a Sony A6000 for a few years. My photography is varied -- from skateboard videos to travel photography to nature stills. Using the 24-240 on a better camera revealed its shortcomings. I could not get a tack-sharp photo no matter what I tried. Tripod, remote, manual focus, setting adjustments and more -- nothing worked. There are higher quality Sony telephoto lenses but none that cover most of this range with a single lens. I don't mind carrying two lenses for travel, but it's a deal-breaker for video. After doing my research I decided to try the Tamron 28-200 and it's a very big improvement. I can obtain much better sharpness. Even videos look a bit crisper and can tolerate more cropping. Losing a bit of the wide end (from 24 to 28mm) has been a price worth paying. PROs (compared to Sony 24-240): significantly sharper; slightly lighter in weight; slightly less expensive; works almost seamlessly with the A7Riv. CONs: loss of the 24-28mm range; a tiny bit slower in focusing initially -- this hasn't been a problem for the type of photo/video I do, and continuous focus works well. I was going to sell the Sony 24-240 to B&H's used department, but it's value on the secondary market is low. I'm giving it to my son who has a Sony a6400.

The Tamron 28-200mm f/2.8-5.6 Di III is a manual zoom-based lens and doesn't electronically zoom. The other reviewer is correct you will need a PZ lens.

Set the focus mode in the camera to MF and then turn the thinner dial on the lens to do manual focus. A7iii also supports peaking and mf assist which makes manual focus pretty easy.

I just received this lens, and my camera (Sony A7riii) is giving me an f-stop range of 2.8-16 not 2.8-5.6. Anyon know what would cause that?
Asked by: Chris
The maximum aperture of the lens is 2.8 to 5.6. At 28mm it is 2.8 as you zoom out to 200mm, it is 5.6. The minimum aperture is f/16-f32 and will change as you zoom, that is known as a variable aperture lens.
