70-300mm lenses offer an alternative to the more standard 70-200mm zoom for photographers who do not need the wider aperture and would prefer a bit more reach on the long end. Sony shooters have a few options, namely the company’s own FE 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 G OSS and the Tamron 70-300mm f/4.5-6.3 Di III RXD, and this excellent video review compares the performance of both.
Coming to you from Christopher Frost, this great video review compares the Tamron 70-300mm f/4.5-6.3 Di III RXD to the Sony FE 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 G OSS. A 70-300mm lens can be really useful for anyone who does not need the wider aperture of a 70-200mm but who wants a lot of reach, making it a good option for things like travel photography, wildlife work, or as a longer lens for landscapes. At less than half the price of the Sony, the Tamron version is also an impressive bargain and even outpaces the Sony in a few areas, most notably its sharpness, making it a great compliment to the company’s other impressive and highly popular E mount lenses. Check out the video above for Frost’s full thoughts.
