This Lens is God-Master 😁. Great Video as always!
If it weren't for Tamron's close relationship Sony we probably would have got a 24-70mm – but then Sony probably wouldn't have given them access to the protocol.
I have the same setup you have. A7III – 28-75 and the 85mm 1.4…
If it's my first lens for A7iii, mainly for video and wedding, which one should I go for? 17-28mm 2.8, or 28-75mm 2.8? And why?
Or a 17-28mm 2.8+ 85mm 1.4+35mm 1.4
Just got this lense and wow, it’s a killer. It’s only my a7riii 95% of the time and the 18-28 tamron for video
So for weddings do you mostly use the zooms now instead of primes?
Excellent review and photos. Subscribed too:-)
I had the lens for 14 months now, and it's fantastic. You can even use it for street photography, as it's so small and anonymous, with a very modest look. It has some vignetting, but when I remove lens vignetting in C1 and add creative vignetting, I usually find myself going back to the lens vignetting, as I find it more pleasant and graduated. That it's not a 24 mm is perfect, because then you can justify to buy the GM 24 mm f1.4, the world's best 24 mm! I ordered the Tamron 17-28 mm, but returned it. I think it was a little decentered, and the distortion was too much on the wide end for my use, and the corners not so sharp as on the 28-75 mm.
For wide angle I hear the new Sigma 14-24 mm eats the Tamron for breakfast, for those who used both. But you have to buy a special adapter on it for filters, and the filter holder becomes massive: http://sonyaddict.com/2019/09/14/nisi-150mm-square-filter-holder-s5-sigma-14-24mm-f2-8-dg-dn-exclusive-model-released/
I used the lens in extreme cold, no problem.
Simply incredible. Great images 🙏
Excellent overview of this lens with samples of your work over the last year, well done!
I’m a prime Sony photographer but interested in this Tamron lens for it’s portability/flexibility at such a reasonable price. However I am concerned about concessions with distortion in this telephoto lens. In one of your sample images with a groom being held in the arms of the bridesmaids taken at 33mm, there appears to be some fairly significant uncorrected vertical distortion of the Manor Parc building on the left side of the frame. Your camera angle seems fairly perpendicular to the groom and ladies, so I doubt this is adding much to the phenomenon. Are you using a lens profile correction when processing your images? I doubt if your wedding clients would even notice this, but for the work I do it would be a problem.
Thanks much for responding and keep up the good work!
I am a retired U.S. Navy Photographer and no longer shoot for a living. I was shooting with Canon gear since 1965 when the camera shop in Yokosuka, Japan where I purchased my first SLR camera did not have a Nikon in stock so I opted for a Canon (a Canon FD which cost me $95 U.S. dollars). I just never left the Canon family until the last year or two. I purchased a Sony A6500 because I liked the concept of Eye-AF, I then teamed it up with the A6400 for its full time Eye AF combined with later Animal Eye AF (I photograph dogs for our rescue group: https://rpcrowe.smugmug.com/Pets/MALTESE-RESCUE-CALIFORNIA/i-QNbLZ2V ) with the most recent firmware update. The APSC format was fine for me since I was not making money any longer with my camera, However, I really missed a 1/8,000 second shutter speed and/or ISO 50 capability since I do a lot of shooting wide open with fast lenses.
I shot with the A6400 and A6500 in tandem ever since the A6400 was introduced and really liked the combination because of the form factor but, I still did not have the shutter speed or ISO to enable me to shoot wide open in bright light conditions. I was also wanting a 1/250 second sync speed since I use fill flash extensively outdoors and the 1/250 second would allow shooting with standard rather than high speed sync in many cases, The hype regarding a successor to the A6500 got me excited because I more and more was using the A6400 as my primary camera but, the A6600 disappointed me since it did not have enough bells an whistles to justify me choosing it over either the A6500 or especially the A6400.
I have just completed selling virtually all my Canon gear and the proceeds are burning a hole in my pocket. I have ordered the 28-75mm Tamron and I am pining over the new 200-600mm Sony lens. I still use the Canon 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS ii lens on my A6400 with a Viltrox focal reducer. Decent but, not great results.
My decision was to purchase an "open box" A7iii and I really love the capabilities of that camera. Although it is a bit heavier and a small bit larger than the APSC cameras that I was using, the extra capabilities of this camera more than make up for those shortcomings. It also allows me more versatility when shooting in tandem with an A6400, As an example, pairing a 24-70mm and 70-200mm lens with the APSC and full frame cameras, I can have either the 24-70mm and 105-300mm equivalent; or a 36-105mm equivalent AND and 70-200mm focal length, depending upon which body is wearing which lens.
Why do I want top-line gear when I am not making money from it? I am used to shooting with excellent cameras and lenses and can afford good but, perhaps not the best like the A7Riv or A9ii…
Great review as always. I have a question. All your sample photos at the end looked great, but all at f2.8.
Even your wide shots and group photos are at f2.8. Wouldn't a higher aperture give sharper results with better contrast?
The Tamron 28-75 and the Samyang 85 are currently the only two lenses I own, I can get most stuff done with those two. I did buy the 17-28 Tamron but unfortunately my copy was soft and seemed to miss focus quite often so I had to send it back. Need something wide but not sure whether to try again or go for one of the Sony versions now, or even the Sigma 14-24 FE
I have a 24-70mm f/4 Vario-Tessar which I am not in love with! The I/Q of that lens just doesn't ring my chimes. It will go on eBay along with a couple of other odd lenses. I plan to shoot with the Tamron 28-75mm on my A7iii in tandem with my A6400 with the 70-200mm f/4 G OSS lens when I need reach or with the 12mm f/2.0 Rokinon when I want to go wide.
Did you use ND filters?
I love your videos but you said all about photography .We need something about Videography . PLIZzz
I'd love one…
Mate imo, your videos are to long…
what picture profile do you use, i use landscape also tell the settings you keep in the picture profile thx
Does this lens make your zeiss 55mm redundant?
Said it before and will say it again, love your videos – right balance of length, information and the reel of your work is the cherry on top. Fantastic and keep it up! On a side note I think I will be picking up the samyang 1.4 over the Sony 1.8 85, cheers!
Must have lens!
