While 70-200mm lenses are generally the standard for telephoto zooms, if you do not need a wider aperture, a 70-300mm lens can offer you more reach on the telephoto end and is often far cheaper than a 70-200mm f/2.8 or f/4 lens. Such is the case with the Tamron 70-300mm f/4.5-6.3 Di III RXD, and this excellent video review takes a look at how the lens performs in the real world.
Coming to you from Christopher Frost, this great video review takes a look at the Tamron 70-300mm f/4.5-6.3 Di III RXD lens. At just $499, the 70-300mm f/4.5-6.3 is very affordable, but offers a versatile focal length range and quite decent image quality. Its features include:
- RXD stepping motor for fast and quiet autofocus (compatible with Sony Fasy Hybrid AF and Eye AF)
- Aluminum-magnesium alloy and moisture-resistant construction
- Low dispersion front element
- Rounded seven-blade diaphragm for smoother bokeh
No doubt, keeping in line with many other modern Tamron lenses, the 70-300mm f/4.5-6.3 Di III RXD looks like it offers a lot of bang for the buck. Check out the video above for Frost's full thoughts on the lens.
