Putting the Tamron 28-75mm f2.8 Di III G2 Lens to the Test

For this shoot, I wanted to do something a little bit different. We went indoors to do some conceptual portraits with unique lighting, gels, etc. I chose this lens specifically for this shoot so I could focus on the concept and shooting at different focal lengths without constantly switching lenses. The beauty of the Tamron 28-75mm f2.8 Di III G2 Lens is the ability to zoom in and out and capture multiple different focal lengths without having to make your client move.

Even though we didn’t really take advantage of it on this particular shoot, my favorite feature of the Tamron 28-75mm f2.8 Di III G2 Lens is definitely the fast aperture. With the ability to go to 2.8, you can get some beautiful bokeh.

This lens feels so good in your hands; it’s really well constructed & sturdy. After being redesigned by Tamron from scratch, the image quality is so much more improved from the previous version of the 28-75.

The Tamron 28-75 is built with mirrorless in mind, with a fast, hybrid autofocus feature, eye autofocus, direct manual focus, in-camera lens corrections

Overall, the redesigned Tamron 28-75mm f2.8 Di III G2 lens is perfect for any genre – whenever you need one single lens that can give you that maximum variety, this should be your go-to.
