Tamron 70-300mm f/4.5-6.3 Di III RXD Reviews

Great lens for A7C

By Frank
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-09-26

I am an advanced amateur and mostly take family and travel photos. I mainly post pictures on social media and some of the photo sites. When I print, I mostly print on my Canon printer to 12x16. I was looking for a low-cost travel-friendly lens to give me some reach, and this lens fills the build. It worked well at my granddaughter's field hockey game. I kept the shutter speed up to reduce camera shake and to stop action. Clearly, this is a lens for outdoors. The weight and size fit well with the A7C. I am quite pleased with the image quality. Only taken a few hundred pictures with it, and have yet to take it on the road, but so far, so good.

Disappointing focus performance

By Robert

I can't tell if I got a defective unit or if the lens is just mediocre. Autofocus was unreliable, especially at the midrange of the zoom. At some settings, the focus was good across the frame. At other settings, the focus was uneven across the frame. Sometimes it was sharper at the edges than at the center. It's not a lens I could rely on. I have other Tamron lenses that I like, but not this one.

Surprisingly good lens.

Excellent value for the money. Yes, it's a little slow, particularly on the super-telephoto end, but it was surprisingly sharp. Maybe I set my expectations really low because of the price, but I am quite pleased with the quality of the photos I've gotten from this lens.

Lightweight and Very Sharp

By Boris

I owned the Canon version of this focal range about 10 years ago. That was a fantastic lens. So is this lens. It is plenty sharp. Focusing and focus tracking are excellent. I was able to track a flying Osprey who had caught a fish some distance away. The bird was small in my frame, so I cropped it to get a larger image of the bird and the fish. To my surprise, I got a perfectly usable image after cropping. The bird was probably occupying about 5% of the frame. I used the lens with my Sony A7RIV and used the APSc mode to get to 450mm. On the trip this is the lens I used the most along with my Tamron 17-28. The combo is all I am going to bring on my next trip as I did not use any of the other Tamron lenses (28-75 and 70-180) I had with me. The 70-300 is very light. So light that it almost feels like you have a cheap lens! Let me tell you this is no cheap lens. It is light which is a major plus and a delight to carry on long hikes and it is plenty sharp for pro results.

Very good value

By Noah

I paid $450 for this lens but even at the MSRP of $550 it would be a great value. Autofocus works well and the images look sharp enough on my a7IV. The lens is very lightweight so I can bring it on outings when most super-telephoto lenses would be too cumbersome. I don't find the lack of stabilization to be an issue, with IBIS I'm able to shoot handheld at 300mm in moderate light and still get sharp images. The build feels solid enough, though the focus ring is somewhat stiff. I haven't needed the weather sealing yet but it's good to know it's there.

There is no difference in the optics of the lenses between the Nikon mount version and the Sony mount version. The only difference is the camera compatibility.

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 .
