The Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8 Di III RXD lens captures crisp photos, focuses quickly, and balances well on Sony full-frame cameras.

    Compact. Wide, fixed aperture. Crisp results. Supports all Sony focus features. Quiet autofocus system. Moisture-resistant design.

  • -

    Not the best performer at 28mm f/2.8. Omits optical stabilization. Firmware update not available in macOS High Sierra.

This is an excellent, versatile lens with an affordable price. It takes impressively sharp images and yields beautiful bokeh. When it's working, the AF works remarkably fast and accurate so you can use it for slow action shots.

    Don't underestimate the new Tamron 28-75mm F/2.8 E-Mount lens. It may come in a basic, unassuming package, so much so we thought we must have gotten a cheap third-party lens by mistake, but this is an incredible and versatile lens you'll start to appreciate as soon as you take your first photos with...

    Unless you are pointing away from the sun or a strong light source, ghosting and flare are difficult to avoid with this glass, probably because it's using Tamron's older BBAR coating. These are easily reduced with a hood and filters, or removed in post, so we won't stress out about that...

Personally speaking, I’d reach for the Tamron. If I’m worried about sharpness, I’ll whip out my flash and do some high speed sync. If I want other things then I’m confident enough in my abilities in Capture One to be able to do anything that the Sony lens can do.

The A036 zoom features our new “Human Touch” design, a mixture of form and function embodied by the “Luminous Gold” brand ring above the lens mount. It tells you that no detail has been overlooked in creating a design and feel that’s easy to work with—everything you look for in a photography...

Tamron’s first dedicated FE lens is a very nice bit of gear at a modest price. It’s relatively compact and light for a standard zoom lens with an f/2.8 constant maximum aperture.

The new Tamron 28-75mm F2.8 Di III RXD isn't the best standard zoom lens for Sony full-frame mirrorless cameras in terms of outright image quality, performance and build quality, but it is currently the best lens in terms of its cost to performance ratio, offering a lot of bang for not a lot of...

Immediately after unboxing in my hotel room, I had to run down and shoot a large convention.. For the next 2 days I used this lens and it over performed.. I did not expect the amazing results that came out of this lens... This lens is worth every penny and more.. Stop thinking and buy it already.

I have had this lens for about three weeks and can't stop shooting with it. It is very sharp and auto focus is quick. It couples with all of the Sony functions without fail. I do not shoot video so can not attest to how it functions in that area. I wish I had had this lens a long time ago.

Great lens at any price point. Very sharp throughout the entire focal range. I have used the 24-70 G Master and this lens is just as sharp from corner to corner. I have updated the firmware and it focuses just as fast as the G Master if not a shade quicker.

Ive taken the lens out the past couple of weeks and am very impressed by its sharpness through the scope of the lens and while longer in length, its lightweight and well balanced on the camera. The focus and zoom ring are opposite to what Im used to but got the hang of it no time.

As an aspiring filmmaker and photographer while being in college, finding good gear at the right price is important to me. Considering the a7iii is the best camera on the market for the features you get for the price, I chose that as my base (after I upgraded from the a6500).

I have been used this lens with the Sony A7ii for 3-4 sessions at DCs cherry blossom. It took very sharp pictures. It will stay on the camera for probably a long time.

Unfortunately I have dropped this lens twice from aprox 1,5 meters and nothing happened. Solid as a rock.Very sharp and the focus is extremely fast.

After watching tons of videos and reading reviews, I was down to this and the Sony 24-70. I have no regrets and the price point is perfect. Its light so traveling with it works great. The focus and zoom are reversed but its not a big deal (to me anyway).

This is my first real lens, and Im pretty impressed so far. Excited for the 17-35 f2.8!
