Bob Atkins Reviews Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8 XR Di AF Lens
Bob Atkins has published a review of the new Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8 XR Di AF lens With equivalent own-brand lenses from the likes of Nikon, Canon and Minolta costing several times more, the £300 Tamron lens could find its way into quite a few photographer’s bags (and is currently in mine).
“Compared with the Canon 28-135/3.5-5.6 IS ($400) at the same f-stop, the Tamron is generally sharper and more resistant to flare, though of course the zoom range is less and it doesn’t have IS. Overall I have no hesitation in recommending the Tamron SP AF28-75/2.8 XR Di LD Aspherical (IF) Macro to anyone looking for a fast lens with this zoom range. The fact that it comes with a standard 6 year warranty is an added bonus.”
