One Lens for All Your Needs: A Review of the Tamron 28-200mm F/2.8-5.6 Di III RXD Lens

Sometimes, for any one of many reasons, it is preferable to shoot with just one lens that covers a wide variety of focal lengths instead of carrying a bunch of individualized lenses. If you are looking for such a lens, check out this great review of the new Tamron 28-200mm f/2.8-5.6 Di III RXD for Sony E mount.

Coming to you from DPReview, this helpful review takes a look at the Tamron 28-200mm f/2.8-5.6 Di III RXD for Sony E mount. Tamron's lenses for Sony E mount have proven to be wildly popular, with great image quality in combination with very affordable prices, and the 28-200mm f/2.8-5.6 looks to continue that trend, coming in at just $729 and offering a tremendously useful do-it-all focal length range with decently wide apertures. It also comes with a great minimum focus distance of 7.5", which translates to a maximum magnification of 0.32x, RXD (Rapid eXtra-silent stepping Drive) autofocus motor with full-time override, moisture-resistant design along with fluorine coating for protection against dirt and fingerprints, and a rounded seven-blade diaphragm for pleasing bokeh. For any photographer who needs a all-in-one option that will not break the bank, it looks to be a strong lens. Check out the video above for the full rundown.
