Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8 Di III VXD G2 Lens for S... Overview

By B&H Photo's

Featuring an updated optical design and refined focusing system, the Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8 Di III VXD G2 is a Sony E-mount zoom offering a versatile wide-to-portrait-length range and bright f/2.8 maximum aperture. Revamped optics yield higher resolution and improved sharpness over the previous generation and the focusing system has been replaced with a VXD (Voice-coil eXtreme-torque Drive) mechanism that achieves faster, more precise performance to suit both stills and video applications. As the second generation of this popular lens, this updated version also sees refinements to the exterior design of the lens, a closer minimum focusing distance of 7.1", and a new connector port for streamlining the process of working with Tamron Lens Utility software to adjust lens settings.

  • Versatile standard zoom designed for full-frame Sony E-mount mirrorless cameras but can also be used with APS-C models where it will provide a 42-112.5mm equivalent focal length range.
  • Bright constant f/2.8 maximum aperture affords consistent illumination throughout the zoom range and also affords greater control over depth of field for working with selective focus techniques.
  • Improved optical design increases resolution and enhances imaging performance.
  • VXD (Voice-coil eXtreme-torque Drive) linear motor focus mechanism provides fast, quiet, and precise autofocus performance throughout the zoom range.
  • Minimum focusing distance of just 7.1" and a 1:2.7 maximum magnification for working with close-up subjects.
  • Updated ergonomic design for improved operability.
  • Connector port works in conjunction with Tamron Lens Utility software for customizing lens functions and updating firmware through the lens rather than through the camera.

Noise when stopping down to F10 and above (F10 - F22)

When stopping down to F10 and above (F10 - F22), a noise comes from the lens (maybe the motor). When pressing the focus hold button, the sound stops--but restarts after releasing. I'm using two Sony FX3s (this happens on both of them). Lastly, I sent it to Tamron for warranty repair, and they stated their lens is not guaranteed to work on Cinema cameras, including the Sony FX3. Ironically, I tried it on the Sony A7SIII as well--same issues.

Purchased this instead of a Sony lens for my new A7 IV. Considering its cost, it is a great lens value. Helps keep my A7 IV compact and lightweight.

But this lens lacks soul and character. It is technically proficient, but it's probably one of the most boring lenses I've ever owned. I've made over a thousand images in search of love but all I do is yawn. I'm sure it's my fault as a photographer, but if so, I've never bored myself so much with any other glass. I will pay triple and see what the native Sony does.

Sharp on A6600

This lens is very sharp on the Sony A6600. Absolutely love the feeling in hand and how light weight it is. The range it provides is fair, just got to step back for a wider shot.

Everyday lens
