The Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8 Di III RXD has been a remarkably popular lens, while the Sony FE 24-70mm f/2.8 GM remains a top performer for standard zooms, albeit at nearly triple the price. Is that increased performance worth the price difference? This helpful video review helps answer that question.
Coming to you from Manny Ortiz, this great video compares the Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8 lens to the Sony 24-70mm f/2.8 G Master lens. Like every lens in the G Master line, the Sony is a top performer in all aspects, but it also has quite the price tag and is not a particularly light piece of glass. On the other hand, the Tamron is much cheaper and lighter and has impressively good image quality for the size and price, though the Sony edges it out. Nonetheless, that difference in image quality may not be enough to justify the price for some photographers. What may also matter to some photographers is the difference in focal lengths at the wide end. 24mm offers a noticeably wider perspective than 28mm, and you might want that extra bit. Check out the video above for Ortiz' full thoughts.
