        Tamron has launched the 28-300 mm F / 3.5-6.3 Di VC PZD, an advanced mega-zoom for full-frame DSLR cameras. A super zoom for full format in this price range? Can that be anything at all? After all, the comparable Canon EF 28-300 costs several times the Tamron price. To answer these questions, we have now subjected the Tamron to a test.

        The new 28-300mm F / 3.5-6.3 Di VC PZD Megazoom from Tamron, at 540 grams, is very light and compact as a lens for full-frame optics. The dust and splash-proof housing of the lens has an overall very good workmanship. The rings for focus and zoom are free of play. The zoom adjustment is quick, but a bit stiff in some places. The autofocus, based on ultrasound technology, works quietly and quite quickly in the wide-angle range. In the telephoto range, it becomes significantly slower, which is probably due to the low light intensity. An optical image stabilizer is of course on board, but it can't quite keep up with Canon. In the telephoto range, we only managed two steps before camera shake became noticeable. The image quality can be described as good, but without achieving “top performance”. But it should be clear to everyone that the lens is a compromise. The resolution and sharpness are good, but not quite on the level of the Canon lens. The images are much darker and not as rich in contrast. Overall, the images look a bit softer. The distortion can be clearly seen in the focal lengths. Vignetting can be seen when the aperture is open, but remains below one f-stop and can easily be corrected in Lightroom. Nevertheless, the Tamron 3.5-6.3 / 28-300 mm Di VC PZD shows quite good results in the tests.
        There are certainly better lenses out there. But none of them are as compact and light as the Tamron 3.5-6.3 / 28-300 mm Di VC PZD. We can warmly recommend this lens for everyone who wants to have a mega zoom on their camera at all times and who do not want to do without good image results. A recommended optics with good image quality and workmanship. All those who need absolute top quality then have to invest a few thousand euros more, and then lug one or the other lens along with them.
