Tamron's 28-75mm f/2.8 Di III RXD lens for Sony mirrorless cameras has been an absolute runaway success, with its combination of portability, image quality, and affordable cost winning over many photographers and videographers. The 17-28mm f/2.8 Di III RXD follows a similar design philosophy, and many people are already excited about the lens. This great video takes a first look at the lens to help you decide if you should add it to your arsenal.
Coming to you from Dustin Abbott, this awesome video takes a first look at the Tamron 17-28mm f/2.8 Di III RXD lens for Sony mirrorless cameras. I had the pleasure of testing out the 28-75mm f/2.8 recently (review coming soon), and I found its image quality, price, and overall performance to be a real winning combination, enough so that I plan on picking one up for myself now that I've sent the loaner back. Nonetheless, a few photographers have missed the extra 4mm on the wide end (as these sort of lenses are typically 24-70mm), so the 17-28mm should be an intriguing option for anyone who is looking to round out the focal length range in their kit or simply for an affordable, high-quality wide angle zoom with a wide maximum aperture. Check out the video above for Abbott's full thoughts.
