Tamron’s 28-75mm f/2.8 lens has been a runaway hit for the company among Sony users, with its combination of a useful focal length, f/2.8 aperture, light weight, image quality, and affordable price making it highly popular. The 17-28mm f/2.8 Di III RXD is the accompanying wide angle zoom, and this great video review takes a look at the lens to help you decide if it is right for you.
Coming to you from The Hybrid Shooter, this excellent review takes a look at the Tamron 17-28mm f/2.8 Di III RXD lens. The 17-28mm f/2.8 is quite the intriguing lens (much like the accompanying 28-75mm f/2.8), as it comes in at just $899, less than half the price of the Sony 16-35mm f/2.8 and in quite the small package. Of course, it has a smaller focal range than the Sony version, but if you own any sort of standard zoom lens, you will have the telephoto end covered (in fact, you could purchase the 17-28mm and the 28-75mm for less than the price of the Sony 16-35mm), and unless you absolutely need 16mm, 17mm is a decently wide angle for most genres, from events to landscape work. Altogether, if you are looking to save a significant chunk of change, you should definitely take a look. Check out the video above for more.
