A Review of the Tamron 70-300mm f/4.5-6.3 Di III RXD Lens

In the last few years, Tamron has established themselves as a manufacturer of some of the most cost-effective and useful lenses available, offering practical capabilities and good image quality all at very affordable prices. One such option is the 70-300mm f/4.5-6.3 Di III RXD lens for Nikon Z mirrorless cameras, and this excellent video review takes a look at the sort of performance and image quality you can expect from it in practice. 

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 for Nikon Z and Sony E mirrorless cameras. At $699, the 70-300mm f/4.5-6.3 offers a wide focal length range at an affordable price, though it still comes with a range of useful features, including: 

  • RXD stepping motor unit for quick, accurate, and quiet autofocus
  • 15 elements in 10 groups with one LD (low dispersion) lens element for reduced chromatic aberrations
  • Compatible with in-camera correction features
  • Rounded seven-blade diaphragm for smoother bokeh
  • Aluminum-magnesium alloy body and moisture-resistant construction
  • Camera-based firmware update capabilities

Altogether, the 70-300mm f/4.5-6.3 Di III RXD looks like another impressive option from Tamron. Check out the video above for Frost's full thoughts on the lens.
