Tamron 28-300mm f/3.5-6.3 XR Di for Sony

Available Today

The Tamron 28-300mm f/3.5-6.3 XR Di Macro lens is a remarkable 10.5x zoom that delivers surprisingly good image quality. With 18 elements in 13 groups, including low dispersion elements, the lens can focus as close as 13 inches and provides a good all-in-one lens package for those times, when you can’t be bothered with changing lenses.

OK, let’s be really clear: this is a consumer grade super zoom. It zooms 10X times. That’s awesome, having a 10X zoom. You don’t get amazing image quality, wide apertures, and 10X zooming, though, that isn’t how photography works. You get adequate image quality (well, the range from 250-300 requires a broad definition of adequate, but it’s OK).

If you want more than adequate image quality, you have to take advantage of the hint they give you when they named these “interchangeable lens cameras”. But for posting on Facebook and other online .jpg locations, viewing vacation shots on your digital photo frame, etc., this will be just fine and very convenient.
