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.

Tamron 28-200mm f/2.8-5.6 Di III RXD Reviews
Ideal general-purpose lens for Sony
This lens is quite small, light and sharp with fast and silent auto-focus. It's a delight to carry in the field. It replaces the 24-70 and 70-200mm lenses, at a fraction of their cost.
Versatile & sharp all the way
I switched over from the Canon RF system, where I owned five lenses, including two L lenses, and this lens beats all of them hands down. Whether it's street photography, candid family photos and videos, talking head videos, and traveling footage, this lens covers all of it soo beautifully. Even at night time, if you can find the right lighting and composition, this lens will render beautiful images. I'm very happy with this purchase. Kudos to B&H for delivering so quickly as well.
Great pictures lens
I love how this lens work on both of my cameras, Sony A7IV and Sony A7C. Is not heavy and practical for any event and moment.

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.
Best Single Telephoto For Sony Full-Frame
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.
Great travel lens
Great travel lens from a size/range/aperture standpoint. Went on a multiway hike and used it for a bulk of my shots, and was happy with the results. From a price/size standpoint I am happy with the sharpness. Would purchase again.
The BEST all-in-one mirrorless lens on the market
This lens in my opinion, as the title says, is the BEST all-in-one mirrorless lens in the market for most hobbyists. When people talk about a zoom lens like this, the first impression will always be: this is a lens that has nothing but zoom range. However, things are changing rapidly. It is like 10 years ago when mirrorless first came out, nobody could imagine it is now an era for mirrorless. This lens is superb in every aspect: a fantastic zoom range up to 200mm! Very lightweight considering the zoom range, starting aperture at f2.8, and most importantly, the IQ does not compromise. It is also weather-sealed, has a fast focus, and comes with macro capability. What else can you expect from such a lens at such an affordable price? People probably don't understand what such an excellent all-in-one lens means: it is great for starters to know what focal length they love without compromising on other things; it is great for traveling and you just need one body and one lens to do everything; it is a great companion even for prime lovers to own the versatility. If you want an all-in-one, this is it.
