Tamron 70-300mm f/4.5-6.3 Di III RXD Reviews
Using this on a Nikon Z7II camera. It's sharp, easy to mount, and lightweight despite its length.
Great low cost zoom.
Great low cost alternative to the more expensive option out there. Not the fastest lens but with good light the image quality is excellent. Also it's very light weight and weather sealed which is a big plus.
Good Good Lens
My first Tamron lens. Can't beat the price. Have only had it for a few days. Focus is not always spot on but not an issue yet. I've not tried it on fast moving objects/sporting events. Using it on a7Riii. Thus far I'm pleased. I'll follow up later.
I'm hoping that this was a one-off issue and I'll get help, but the lens has stopped focusing at its max zoom after just 6 months. Pretty disappointing for a $500 investment.
High Performing, Light Weight telephoto for Nikon Z
I must say that this lens is a gem for Nikon Z shooters. Not as sharp as the 70-200mm f2.8, but much lighter and more manageable, and wonderfully sharp within its sweet spots.
Nikon Z Overpriced
Not a bad lens, 1) not clearly better than old Nikon AF-P on FTZ and 2) why is this 50% more than the Sony version that otherwise seem exactly the same? Improve Q or drop $.
I like it.
I've had this lens for a couple weeks now and so far, I like it. For the price, I am satisfied with the capabilities. If you buy this lens knowing it is not going to be the same quality as a $2,500+ native lens, I don't think you're going to be disappointed in it. It can be a little slow to focus and sometimes focus is a little soft, but that is probably more from user error on my end than the actual lens itself. I like being able to have that extra reach so I can start learning how to shoot wildlife and practice my skills while I still save up for one of the native telephoto lenses. I'm pairing this lens with a z6ii and it seems to do well with it. My camera does handle higher iso's alright so the 6.3 hasn't been a deal breaker. I probably wouldn't pair this lens with a with a camera that doesn't have in body stabilization because even when I shoot handheld at shutter speeds over 1000, I do get some softness from camera shake. It would probably be far worse if my camera didn't have the in-body stabilization.
Review above 200mm
I have come to the conclusion that a picture above 200 mm is out of focus on a Nikon z7. I have tried this with my Nikon z6, with the same results. I photograph wildlife only and need the 300mm for long range.
