Are you looking for a lens that is ready for anything? Well, Tamron recently released their 28-300mm F/3.5-6.3 DI VC PZD lens and they are calling it the “innovative all-in-one zoom.

19 June 2015

Tamron have offered a 28-300mm super-zoom lens of one kind or another for 35mm full frame cameras for quite some time now. This lens is the latest refinement, which sports optical vibration compensation, a silent piezo-electric focusing motor and a splash-proof construction.

The Tamron 28-300mm f3.5-6.3 DI VC PZD is a lens designed for the photographers that just want to shoot and care about nothing else. And with the introduction of more affordable full frame camera bodies, there are loads and loads of them.

Superzoom lenses like this offer a versatile, compact option which is great for travel, or simply for when a large zoom range is convenient. This lens adds a decent vibration compensation system, resistance to dust and moisture and fast focusing to allow this lens to be used in a wide range of...

    Not much different in price between this and Nikon marque lens

17 September 2014

Announced at the CP+ show in Japan in February, the Tamron 28-300mm f/3.5-6.3 Di VC PZD (Model A010E) lens initially went on sale late in June. Replacing the previous model (A20), the new lens is smaller and lighter, thanks to a new mechanical design with a multi-stack-cam layout that takes up less...

This is the first Tamron lens I have bought so there is always that hesitation. I have the Canon 28-300mm which I do use a lot but it is so heavy it is not always convenient. I was looking for a decent walk around lens that was light weight and compact to use for more casual shooting.

Excellent lens. I use it with my D500 for wild life. It is fast and reliable. Focus is sharp and quick even when camera is in boost. I would recomend to anyone who needs a excellent lens for wildlife.

After realizing that i was constantly shooting my 24-105L at f8 or f11, and at the same time leaving my 100-300 f5.6L in the car rather than taking it up to the 24th floor apartment where it would have been good to have for some quick snaps I decided to look into the dreaded field of superzooms.

    Small, Light, Better than expected

    would it have been better if it was just alittle bigger?

At a comparably low price for that range, with its light weight, it seems to be a good lens to travel with. One has to be psychologically prepared for slightly lower picture quality. Was this review helpful?

    Light weight, low price when compared with S series lens, reasonable sharpness, most suitable for travel and walking around with.

  • -

    While the edge sharpness is ok, the pictures seem to lack good gradations. In unfavorable lighting conditions, it seems to be not doing well.

I bought this lens as a travel lens. I have only begun to use it. However, so far I am impressed with the sharpness and clarity at all the focal points that I have used so far. I shot a few burst mode series of a dog playing and found it to focus very quickly.

I didn't previously own any lenses except for Canon L glass. I wanted an inexpensive walk-around lens for my Canon 5D MK IV. I decided against the Canon 28-300 because of its cost, size and weight. The Tamron 28-300 got great reviews and it seemed to fit my needs so I ordered it.

I really like this lens. It's great for overall general use. I like to take it with me for Photo-walks around the town.

This lens is my carry everywhere lens. I very rarely carry other ones because this gives me close-up and distance with sharp photos.
