    Top comment

    "I recently upgraded my DSLR to Mirrorless (5 months ago) and have been using this lens since. This is a fantastic lens and not only feels more premium (over the DSLR G lenses), but the performance of sharpness is unmatched for a short-zoom lens. ...Great lens! I like the zoom range and will pair with the new 70-200 (2.8) lens once released. ...The standard 2.8 zoom lens gets even better"

    "Good lens...Really good lens. I do wish it was f/2.8, but its a nice trade off for the size....The Perfect All Around Fuji Lens...It also is harder to do run and gun videography on a gimbal with this lens because you have to rebalance the gimbal slightly anytime you change the zoom. "

    "Lens is good but not worth the price....Better use a FTZ if you have a AF-S zoom lens lying around.

Smooth zoom action, very quiet auto focus. Paired with a Z5! "

    The Tamron 28-75mm F/2.8 Di III VXD G2 (Model A063) provides outstanding resolution and superb overall performance in a lightweight and compact zoom lens for Sony E-mount full-frame mirrorless cameras.

Additionally, Tamron has adopted a new design with improved ergonomics and revised the exterior coating of the lens body to improve scratch resistance. The filter size is 67mm, which is standard among Tamron's fast aperture zoom lens series and enables the sharing of lens caps, filters, and other accessories. In addition to features such as Moisture-Resistant Construction and a protective Fluorine Coating, the lens supports various features built into Sony E-Mount cameras, including Fast Hybrid AF, Eye AF and in-camera lens corrections (shading, chromatic aberration, distortion).
