Tamron 70-300mm f/4.5-6.3 Di III RXD Reviews
i love it!
Images are visibly better than those taken with Sony 70-300
I sold my Sony OSS 70-300 lens because I wasn't satisfied with most of the images it produced on my Sony A7iii. Even when shooting at 1/320 or faster, the sharpness and resolution were often disappointing. So far I'm really impressed with my new Tamron 70-300. It costs less than half the price of the comparable Sony. More important, images are sharp, the colors pop and the bokeh is pleasing. Sure, I wish the lens had image stabilization, a side control button and a locking feature, but I don't miss the added weight of the Sony. The Tamron is incredibly light yet it still feels solid and smooth. In fact, because the lens is lighter and slightly narrower than the Sony, it's easier to pull from my bag and switch lenses on the fly. That means I'll reach for it more often. I had also considered the Tamron 70-180 2.8, which is a sweet lens and certainly better for low light or in situations where you want to limit depth of field. But in the end, I wanted the longer reach of the 70-300. Overall, I'm very happy with my purchase. It's a nice complement to my Sony OSS 24-105 4.0, which is my primary lens, and Sony 16-35 4.0. I keep a Sony 35 mm prime 1.8 for low-light situations.
Lightweight zoom lens for sports.
A high quality zoom lens for outdoor sports. Lightweight and fast focus. Very reasonable price.
Light weight travel gear
Light weight travel gear for landscape, portraiture, wildlife and birding! Paired with Sony A7C makes for a perfect compact telephoto zoom setup for hiking and travelling! Sharp, versatile and with a great reach using Sony camera feature like Clear Image Zoom which in combination with APSC crop mode effectively give a 2.25 times image zoom without much loss in image quality. This means my little Tamron 70-300 when paired with this compact full-frame camera can zoom up-to 675mm of telephoto range!! Just perfect!!!
Shipping was terrible
The product overall is fantastic, quality of the lens exceeded my expectations, and the packaging was excellent with plenty of bubble wrap. On the other hand Fed Ex took weeks to deliver. Luckily the product arrived before Christmas as a gift.
How can such a good lens be at this price?
Honestly after purchasing so many lenses that were over $1000 of dollars, it was hard to adjust my standards. I purchased this lens for a gift but, WOW! Very light and covers all the focal lengths for any situation. I'm honestly surprised how they made this lens within this price point. If you are looking for something light and covers most of the crucial focal lengths and want something entry-mid level lens. Here it is!
It's a good peace for a good price
I'm very Happy with this zoom lens...
This zoom lens is very sharp and light...
