January 12, 2021 Tamron 17-70mm F2.8 Di III-A VC RXD (B070) Review

Tamron has emerged in the last 7 or 8 years as the king of third party zooms.  They’ve had a few standout prime lenses (the SP 35mm F1.4 being chief), but where Tamron has made its living has been with well regarded zoom lenses that have been well made and optically excellent while also being […] [Read more...]

November 23, 2020 Tamron 70-300mm F4.5-6.3 RXD (A047) Review

Tamron has been on a tear in the last few years on the Sony FE (full frame E-mount) platform, releasing one high-performing, reasonably priced zoom after another.  This started with the very well received 28-75mm F2.8, followed by the 17-28mm F2.8, then 70-180mm F2.8, the travel-ready 28-200mm F2.8-5.6, and now a longer tel [Read more...]

August 20, 2020 Traveling with the Tamron 28-200mm RXD

When I reviewed the Tamron 28-200mm F2.8-5.6 RXD in June of 2020, I theorized that it might just be the best travel option available on Sony.  I put that to the test recently and traveled to Mont Tremblant, Quebec (one of my favorite spots), and used the A071 (28-200mm) almost exclusively on that trip.  I […] [Read more...]

July 6, 2020 Tamron SP 85mm F1.8 VC Long Term Review

In 2020 I’ve been doing a series of long term review of lenses that have managed to stay in my own personal kit for years on end.  I evaluate these lenses using my current review techniques and with the unique insight that comes with knowing how well the lenses have held up to real world […] [Read more...]

June 29, 2020 Tamron 28-200mm F2.8-5.6 RXD (A071) Review

Tamron continues to flesh out their lineup for Sony FE (full frame mirrorless) with another intriguing new entry.  Even those who buy expensive, full frame cameras sometimes want a single lens solution for outings or travel where bringing a big kit along isn’t really an option. The Tamron 28-200mm F2.8-5.6 RXD helps t [Read more...]

June 20, 2020 Tamron 28-200mm F2.8-5.6 RXD Image Gallery

Tamron continues to flesh out their lineup for Sony FE (full frame mirrorless) with another intriguing new entry. The Tamron 28-200mm F2.8-5.6 RXD helps to fill the role of a competent all-in-one/travel lens for full frame mirrorless, though with a much better optical performance on most measures than what I typically see.  [Read more...]
