Tamron's 28-75mm f/2.8 lens for Sony E mount has been a huge hit for the company. They eventually filled out the lineup with the 17-28mm f/2.8 and the 70-180mm f/2.8 Di III VXD lenses, creating a fantastic alternative for photographers looking for a cheaper f/2.8 zoom trio. This excellent review takes a look at the 70-180mm f/2.8 and if it can stand up to the heavy demands often placed on such lenses.
Coming to you from Dustin Abbott, this great video takes a look at the new Tamron 70-180mm f/2.8 Di III VXD lens. The 70-200mm f/2.8 is a staple lens in the bags of many photographers across tons of genres, and as such, such optics typically have high expectations placed on them. So far, the 28-75mm f/2.8 and 17-28mm f/2.8 have received great reviews, making them excellent alternatives to the much higher prices of first-party equivalents. Though it sacrifices 20mm of reach at the long end, at $1,199, Tamron's version undercuts the price of Sony's 70-200mm f/2.8 by more than half, and it looks like it has very good image quality and performance to match. Check out the video above for Abbott's full thoughts.
