Tamron 17-28mm F/2.8 Di III RXD Short Review
Even if you haven’t thought about adding a wide-angle zoom to your camera kit before, you might want to when you get your hands on the Tamron 17-28mm F/2.8 Di III RXD. The second lens to be added to Tamron’s E-mount series, it inherits many of the features we loved about the Tamron 28-75mm F/2.8 Di III RXD, except in a more compact barrel that matches the Sony a7R III small form perfectly.
The Tamron 17-28mm F/2.8 Di III RXD blends affordability with spot-on sharpness, ace autofocusing, and extensive weather-sealing, giving Sony’s FE 16-35mm F/2.8 GM a proper run for its money, all $2,199.99 of it.
Is it something you absolutely need in your bag? If you’re into travel and landscape photography, as everyone seems to be in this day and age of Instagram, then without question. If you’re not, get the Tamron 17-28mm F/2.8 Di III RXD anyway. We see a lot of potential use for this lens, from portraits and filmmaking to street and pet photography. And considering how compact and light it is, once you have it, you’ll probably never want to switch it out for another lens.
