How is this lens for Friday Night Football Games with A73 ?
Asked by: Hugh
It is a very good lens in general. But it is f/4.5-6.3. So not the best for low light compared to others. Depending on how dark it is you will need to up your iso. And it will not be as fast to Autofocus compared to an f/2.8 lens like a 70-200, https://bhpho.to/3s0NRMl .

Any idea if the IQ will be close to the Sony 70-350?
Asked by: Larry
At this time there is no reviews comparing the two lenses. The Tamron is not out yet and will not be till around October 30th. Chances are the Sony optics will be better. Note, the Sony 70-350 is not a full frame lens. It is for APS-C sensors. And the Tamron 70-300mm f/4.5-6.3 Di III RXD Lens for Sony E is for full frame cameras.

Any advice on how to prevent the lens from "creeping"? I like to wear my camera with the Peak Design Strap connected to the side lug and tripod mount. With the strap slung diagonally across my torso, the camera rests comfortably and compactly on my side or back with the lens pointing down. It only takes a couple of minutes for the Tamron to fully extend.
Asked by: Petr
Anti-creep bands such as this LensBand help prevent creep when stretched diagonally over the zoom ring and the rest of the lens' body. https://bhpho.to/3DhntEB

Will the Tamron 70-300 mm lens work on a Sony A6500 camera?

Since this lens does not have Image stabilization will it work normally for camera body without IBIS such as Sony a7 mark-1 ?

Yes, it will work. IBIS and stabilized lens elements are pluses, but not having them isn't that big of a detriment.
