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.

HI,this lens is good for work sports photography?
Asked by: Wilfredo
I use it mostly for low light photography with the Sony a7iii. Given the excellent high ISO performance, it should be good for sports photography, I also use it for bird photography. It is good, but not excellent.

What would be the closest competitor for this lens? Also, how well would it replace the FE 4/24-105 G OSS ?
Asked by: Steph
Hey, so I have been shooting professionally with the Tamron 28-200mm for a few months now, and have tested it extensively in the field. The closest competitor to this lens would be the Sony 24-240 f6.3 lens. I have also used this lens and the Tamron outmatches it every time especially in sharpness and weight. The Sony was prone to dust finding its way into the lens, the focus rings coming loose over time, and being soft focusing lenses. As for the Sony 24-105mm lens, you are almost talking about two different sections of lenses. The 24mm will get you a little wider than the 28mm; might be great for large crowds or landscapes but it's not too far off from 28mm. But, the 28-200mm is an f2.8 at 28mm and f5.6 at 200mm which will get you better depth of field, better light production, and the extra reach for at 200mm is so handy. Furthermore, the Tamron is around $799-$899 the Sony 24-105mm is $1199 and the Sony 24-240mm is $900-$1099. Buy the Tamron, seriously I was shocked at the sharpness, smoothness, and quietness of the motors, focus accuracy and speed, build quality, and the plastics work, the lock switch is awesome but the lens doesn't creep, used it all day in the rain the other day (covered but very humid) and it never fogged up and kept its focus.

Since my Sony ar7ii has built in image stabilization, but this lens does not, does it matter?
Asked by: Anthony
I have the Sony A7R III and the A9II and have used this lens extensively on both cameras. The longer the focal length utilized on the 28-200, the more apparent it is that the camera suffers from the lack of image stabilization. I account for this by using a higher shutter speed at longer focal lengths than I do at shorter focal lengths with the 28-200.
