Tamron is one of the most well-respected lens brands out there, offering a variety of options at great prices. One such option is the 28-75mm f/2.8 Di III VXD G2, and this great video review takes a look at what you can expect from it.

Coming to you from Jacek Sopotnicki, this informative video review takes a look at the Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8 Di III VXD G2 lens and its build quality, image quality, and video performance, offering valuable insights for potential buyers.

Sopotnicki highlights the lens' solid construction and user-friendly features, such as the customizable button and convenient USB-C port for firmware updates. He praises the image quality, particularly the sharpness in the center at both wide and telephoto ends, even at f/2.8. While acknowledging some corner softness and chromatic aberration, he assures viewers that these issues are easily manageable in post-processing. The improved bokeh is a significant upgrade from the previous version, offering a smooth and pleasing background blur. Autofocus performance is generally reliable, with occasional slight hesitations that shouldn't pose major concerns.

The video also addresses performance against harsh light, highlighting the lens's ability to maintain good contrast. However, Sopotnicki notes that flare control could be better. For video shooters, the focus breathing effect is minimal, making this lens suitable for focus pulls. 

Sopotnicki concludes that the 28-75mm f/2.8 remains a compelling option for photographers seeking a versatile and high-performing zoom lens. Its combination of image quality, build, and features, along with a competitive price point, makes it a strong contender in the market. Check out the video above for the full rundown from Sopotnicki.
