Review Date: Oct 29, 2016 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Excellent colors, very sharp to the corners, fast zoom movement
Cons:
None

Sony makes some of the best zoom lenses that act more like primes.
The resolution is wonderful and sharp to the corners
Colors are excellent and weight and size are perfect for what it is

Pros: Light weight, quality made, excellent optics native lens on the A7

none

I love this lens, the photo's that come from it remind me of the Canon 200 1.8 prime from the past I had and that saying a lot.

Fast focusing and love that it's a native lens on my Sony A7

Review Date: Mar 25, 2008 Recommend? no | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 4 

 
Pros: Can't think of any
Cons:
Don't like the coating on the lens Stiff focus ring Back focused on the 1DII

I found the lens over priced and had back focus issues
and the coating on the body was inferior to Canon's


 
Tamron 28-75MM F/2.8 XR Di LD Aspherical (IF)

2875mm
Review Date: Mar 2, 2008 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $339.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Small, Light, Sharper then Canon, Less expensive
Cons:
Not really. but just a bit more mm on both ends would be nice

I've had Tamron in the past when I did film and trust there lenses.


After switching to Canon I had both the Canon 24-70 and 24-105 and the Tamron 28-75 beats them both with first hand real world test I performed on them all.


Color is equal, contrast from the tammy was better, sharpness, the Tamron won by just a bit.


AF from the Tamron is just a hair under the speed of the Canon's and is accurate in low light.


The Tamron was a bit soft wide open @ 2.8 but any smaller it was killer sharp.


If you need weather sealing and IS then you know your choices.


But if your after IQ the Tamron 28-75mm is King and well built too.


The newer generation of lenses in the world of 3rd party are now equal or surpass Canon.


I'm very much a Canon red ring, L nut but this Tamron 28-75 stands out as a winner for Tamron similar to the Cinderella story.
