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

Surprisingly Excellent!

By Linda

I have never been a fan of Tamron lenses and have never kept one that I tried before when I had a DSLR. But this lens for the Sony E mount camera is different. The photos I've taken using it on my A7Riii are stunning with incredible sharpness from front to back. On a recent trip shooting waterfalls I took images focused on the foreground, middle, and background expecting to have to focus stack them in post-processing. But when I got them into Photoshop I was able to use a single image because it was sharp throughout the photo. There is no image stabilization but the Sony camera bodies have some internal stabilization that seems adequate enough for handholding the camera and lens. I've successfully shot a sharp night image handheld at 1/25th of a second. I can truthfully say that I am totally blown away by the quality of the images I've gotten with this lens. So much so that within 10 days of purchasing this Tamron lens, I sold my Sony 70-200mm f/4 lens. The Tamron did not come off my camera the whole time I was on vacation. It was fun to shoot with being able to zoom in and out to experiment with compositions and not having to change lenses. I compete regularly at a local camera club and need sharp images. This Tamron 28-200mm lens gives me that competition-worthy quality image.

More than expected

I purchased this lens in hopes of maybe taking it on vacation. However, I didn't think it would be an everyday lens. Boy was I wrong. I've used it on my A74 everyday since I purchased it. It's sharp, quick to focus with excellent color rendition. It is a much better lens than expected and at a great Price!

Tremendous Performance & Value

If you are looking for an all-in-one lens for the Sony E mount, this is the one to buy. It is extremely sharp at all apertures and focal lengths. Some have complained that it lacks in-lens stabilization, but with Sony's IBIS system, I can consistently capture crisp images at 200mm at 1/30th of a second. If you are into infrared photography, you are also in for a treat: this lens is a stellar performer. I tested it using a 720nm infrared filter and found it produced excellent results at every focal length and aperture. You will not find a better performing lens at this focal length range or a better value.

An all-around great, compact zoom lens

This lens manages to achieve very respectable image quality for the size, weight, and cost. This lens is an easy recommendation to people who want a versatile lens that they can use without needing a tripod. There are definitely bigger, heavier, more expensive lenses that offer a wider aperture and slightly better image quality, but there are trade-offs in every lens.

Excellent Lens

It's a great do everything you need lens for the money, sharp at both ends and fast focusing. Currently using this lens with my Sony A7III camera, very happy with the results.

Best for the value

This lens is faster than most variable zoom lenses which usually starts with f3.5 and this lens starts f2.8 and didn't go pass f4 until 65mm. This lens is sharp, fast and accurate focusing and rendering nice color. I think this is a great super zoom for travel, all I need is to bring one or two fast prime lenses, I'm all set. If I have anything more to expect is this lens is a bit bigger and heavier than what I hope for to go with an A7C body. 28mm is good for most use cases, 24mm would have been perfect but that would definitely add weight and size. So I think Tamron made a good decision. Don't let those pixel comparison reviews on YouTube mislead you about this lens being a variable, distortion....... This is a great lens for your money, I highly recommend it.

Great lens purchase

I have the Tamron 70-180 2.8, added this so can take graduation pictures from wide to telephoto and outdoor sporting events of my grandson. Just shot some birds at feeder and all pictures were perfect for the situation. Worked well using my Sony A7iii and 6500. BH photo is the best, fast shipping and easy checkout. I always tell others to try BH for best price and selection.

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.
