I now have the Tamron 28-75mm F/2.8 XR Di lens in my hands, and will start on the Sony/Tamron 28-75mm F/2.8 comparison. I see the front and rear of each lens looks identical, though the body of the Tamron is slimmer. I’ll be doing a complete review of this lens, but since there is so much interest in the comparison, I’ll post the results as I get them, like the regular lens comparison reviews, (except on a separate page), that way I can get out the info much quicker, and you may be able to save several hundred dollars if you decide the Tamron meets your needs.
The Sony/Tamron 28-75mm F/2.8 comparison is brought to you by a thoughtful reader, Steve from Connecticut. Loaning me a lens or sending a donation is a good way to support this site, and allows me to continue to help others, which is especially important in these tough economic times.
