Tamron 28-200mm F2.8-5.6 Di III RXD E-mount lens review by nandbytes
|nandbytes#45611 date: Nov-10-2020|
flare control: 5
|ownership:||I own this lens|
|compared to:||Sony 24-240mm|
Sony 24-105mm f4
|price paid:||£899 (new)|
|positive:||Sharp lens especially on a 24mp body.|
Fast aperture through a good range of the zoom focal lengths
Good AF, with flare and distortion reasonably well controlled (in fact for this kind of a lens its very good!)
Its compromise is very obvious, nothing hidden and horrendous like other superzooms (look in negatives below)
|negative:||Only 28mm start but I suppose that keeps the lens compact and optical formula simpler to make this lens sharp at the range I does provide.|
Rendering especially sunstars and bokeh not the best.
|comment:||This is a very viable alternative to the 24-105mm f4 G which is actually you a rather sharp lens through the zoom range. What you lose in reach on the wide end you make up for in reach at the long end and also a stop more light at 28mm. The results from this lens does give more resolution than just cropping results out of 24-105mm, so that is a pretty good result overall.|
Sony 24-105mm does render more nicely and sunstars are very nice in comparison.
the Sony 24-240mm isn't really a serious contender when it comes to IQ.
