    Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8 reviews

    A09 SP AF 28-75mm f/2.8 XR Di LD Aspherical (IF) Macro Zoom is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 51.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Don't even think about buying any other! This lens is amazing...sharp even wide open, light weight, and fast to focus on an A900. But the real killer is that this lens is so affordable compared to Sony's 28-70 (a Tamron design as well) and the mega-expensive Zeiss 24-70. Just get this lens and smile every time it's used like I do. I don't mind the plastic even though many claim it feels cheap. I don't get that feeling holding the lens as it seems quite sturdy to me. The only negative I can comment on is that the focusing ring rotates during autofocus, but you get used to it quickly. I can carry this lens around all day...something you wouldn't want to do with the heavy Zeiss.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best lens that no one knows about This lens is great. I never heard a lot about it before I got it (there's always someone raving about the 20ish to 70ish iterations from Nikon, Sony, and Canon), but I'd put this against all of them. This is one of three lenses always on my camera (besides the 70-200 f/2.8 and a 50 mm 1.8 prime). I actually use this sometimes instead of my 50mm 1.8 prime if I'm shooting f/4 or above. Pretty sharp wide open and razor after f/4. It's great shooting events in low light without flash. It has a little lens creep, but I don't mind because 1) it has a lock and 2) it's not that long fully extended to really bother anything. Save your money and get this lens.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Save you money - get Tamron. Sony FF boom members! Owners of A900 and A850 listen to my voice. First it was created Tamron 28-75/2.8 famous glass sharp and good end to end. Then Minolta bought this lens from Tamron, and after all, Sony purchased it. They made a minor modification (made it 24-70, Etc. But in their lenses (made from plastic too) Tamron made glasses are installed. There are a lot of different comparative reviews you will not make mistake. The only thing is different - Sony has better quality control (for doubling the price) but Tamron has 6 Years of warranty! My advice buy Tamron 28-75/2.8 and check it carefully on various zooms and distances, opened and closed Aperture. ...

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Matches well with the 70-200/f2.8 As a weekend action sports shooter I travel up and down the east coast photographing bicycle races. I needed a lightweight short telephoto zoom to match up with my 70-200/f2.8 main lens. With this lens mounted on a second body all the bases are covered for those shots requiring a short zoom range. Internal focus means the front element does not rotate while focusing so you can use all filter types on this lens without having to reposition them after focus lock (polarizers and gradient filters). The circular filter gives pleasing out of focus background effect.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Lens For The Money I needed a good walk around lens and wider angle lens to compliment my Canon 70-200 F/4L lens which is the epitome of sharp. I chose the Tamron 28-75 F/2.8 based on reviews and price point. I have shot enough pictures now to know what all the rave is. My pictures are sharp with proper contrast, and colors seem rich in good light. I have read this lens does focus slow and with noise. I found neither to be true. My lens is not perfectly quiet but I found noise and speed more than acceptable. Now at 75mm at F/2.8 the lens is soft as you will note in many of the reviews you read. However by F/3.5 the lens recovers nicely and by f/4.0 the lens is razor sharp. I would have no problem recommending this lens or purchasing it again. Being used on a Canon 7D.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Investment After months of researching I finally took the plunge and purchased this lens. I have mounted on an Alpha 700 and it performs beautifully. I was blown away with how sharp this lens is!! I'm a staff photographer with a rat rod magazine so I shoot with cars and models frequently. The locations range from outside to inside small garages with limited lighting options, this lens has not let me down. Without a doubt this lens is a solid investment that you will enjoy for years to come!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great alternative to the Carl Zeiss 2470 This lens is very impressive for the price. It costs about a third of the Zeiss lens and can handle the 24 mega pixel sensor of the Sony A900. It focuses quickly and accuratley. Boken is just right when used wide open. It really gets sharper when used at f4-f8. This lens hands down is better than the Sony 28-75 because you get more for your money.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great all around lens I find myself primarily using this lens. Focus seems to be fast and pictures come out clear. The bokeh I get from this lens is pleasing. Build quality seems very solid. Its also great for recording video with my Sony A77. This lens has become my all around lens. This a nice portrait lens too. This lens is worth a look.
