Got out of the hospital this morning and into the blind I went. Rainy of course here in cloudland and a bit dark. Good test of Riv and the new Tam.

Dallvr when I was on safari in the Timbavati/Kruger our drives were early morning and afternoon going into evening and I appreciated (though suffered the weight) 2.8mm primes....just thinking out loud about this lens and its aperture range versus the 70-180 and F2.8.
Of course that has to be weighed against lens changes and inside dusty Land Rovers

But I'm like you, 28-200 on the Riv and 200600 on the a9 (you have the a9ii I think) and I'll be good. AND I remembered I have the Rokinon 18/2.8 just in case I get a starry night It doesn't add

I was thinking mostly about the 28-200 on game drives, where I have been using the 200-600, 100-400 and 24-105, each on an E-mount body. I also have on hand, and have to do a lens change when I need the 90 macro or for stars or Milky Way, the 12-24. I have cleaned more photos of dust spots than I care to remember, so I am pretty fanatic about not changing lenses on the fly. (I have the a9i, not the ii, a7R4 and a7R3). Of course, with travel these days being what it is, I have plenty of time to think about what the kit should be for my next safari.

Those look really good. I'm seriously considering this lens. I also have the a7r iv and the a9ii. I just picked up the 200-600 for the a9ii and I'm not sure what to do with the 100-400 GM. The 28-200 on the a7r iv could work for a two lens carry with the 200-600 + 1.4x TC on the a9ii for wildlife/birds.

I also have the Sigma 14-24. I'm selling my Leica Q2 and I'm thinking the 14-24 and 28-200 could be a great travel combination with the r iv and a9ii during the day. At night I'll still probably carry some combination of the 14-24, Sigma 35 1.2 or Sony 50 1.4 ZA and the Sigma 105 1.4.

How do you find the AF performance of the Tamron?

I really want to see how this lens ends up comparing optically to Nikon's 24-200 superzoom. Nikon has the wider end while Tamron has the better aperture.

Today's walkabouts snaps.
No I wouldn't use this lens for BIF (huge crops), macro(realy pseudo macro), or brick walls, or mating turtles (deep in the forest, ISO 4000), but I would use this for just an awesome walkabout lens for fun snapping. Tamron gets another thanks from me.

I took some test shots with 24-70 f2.8 GM, 70-200 f4 G and this lens. I honestly do not see much difference between my Sony lenses and this Tamron. I was using A7R4 with f5.6-8.0, 1/500-1/1000 and ISO 100-400.

I owned FE 70-200mm F4 for several years, gave it to my best friend's daughter as a wedding present for her and her a6500.
I can only go by memory and the Tamron competes well with it, beating it in several areas, and sharpness at 200 me feeling the Tamron 28-200 wins. The real victory is the obvious 2.8 at 28mm and the extreme close focus at 28mm.

I can't say anything about the 70180. Never had it.

I'd love to see some of these, if possible. Not that I don't believe you, just really curious about this new Tamron now. Even just some more samples from the Tamron alone would be great. I have the 17-28, and was planning to get the 70-180 soon, but if I can fully cover 17-200 with two lenses that are pretty sharp at landscape apertures, I might go in a different direction for my lightweight backpacking kit. Either way, thanks for the info.

Any chance you can let me know what the aperture is at 70mm?

According to this Flickr image, the Tamron lens at 70mm is at f/4.

Dallvr, I forgot to tell you I did the kickstarter campaign for the rear pop in magnetic filters for the Sony FE 12-24mm. Sadly I leave for vacation in 2 weeks and they won't be here by then.

I do a decent amount of backpacking and hiking. Having a telephoto is a must for the type of landscape photos I take. I currently have a Voigtlander 21mm f3.5 and the 40mm Nokton f1.2 that I'd love to pair the Tamron 28-200 with.

Aldburg us too. Two weeks ago we did a 39 miler/4 days in GSMNP. My base weight out of the car was 15 pounds=everything for 4 days but water. Camera was a phone I'm too old to carry a real camera on real backpack trips anymore.
I've also got the VG 40/1.2=sweet lens!

Looking for a lens to use when I want good photos but photography isnít primary concern, family outings are large portion of this. A lot of super zooms get too slow, too quickly to be a lot of interest. I think that might be whatís most am attractive to me here. f/4 at 70mm, f/4.5 at 100mm, not too much worse than 75/2.8 in practical use and 200mm too boot. Itís always compromises with optics, to me this makes a lot of good ones. Itís a fair trade off to the 28-75/2.8. Ultimately Iím not sure which Iíd rather go with. Was thinking about comparing but not sure about the 28-75 I got.

Same for me as far as intended use...landscape shots on long hikes and backpacking trips. Right now I just carry my 17-28 and 70-200 when space and weight are important, but if I could fill in the 28-70 range while keeping similar IQ and actually reducing the weight, obviously that's intriguing.

MedicineMan, I have the Nisi filters for the 12-24, but am waiting for the rear magnetic filters to be manufactured. I had Aurora Aperture's rear filters when I had the Canon 11-24, and thought they were excellent.

I see this as a viable option for day hikes. Pair it with a 17-28/2.8 - or another large aperture wide angle - and you have your shots in the woods with poor light as well.
