Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8 Di III VXD G2 Lens for Nikon Z Summary

Although arriving for Nikon mirrorless cameras for the first time, the Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8 Di III VXD G2 Lens for Nikon Z mount introduces second-generation enhancements, which include improved resolution, optics, focusing capabilities and design refinements.

Model A063 as it is internally referred to by Tamron, is an accomplished standard zoom lens, with a large constant aperture and versatile range for everything from landscapes and portraits to travel and video recording.

Despite being an extremely compact and portable full-frame Nikon Z mount lens, it delivers excellent optical performance, especially when paired with high-resolution digital cameras. A fast and quiet VXD linear motor focus mechanism offers excellent AF, while the minimum object distance opens up creative avenues for engaging macro-type shots, high magnification and frame-filling details.

Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8 Di III VXD G2 Lens for Nikon Z in More Detail

Outstanding image quality

Delivering unparalleled image quality within its class, the Tamron standard zoom lens incorporates cutting-edge design with an optical configuration comprising 17 elements in 15 groups. By strategically positioning two LD (Low Dispersion) and GM (Glass Moulded Aspherical) lens elements, optical aberrations are effectively controlled, ensuring high-resolution performance across the entire zoom range, even at wide apertures.

Furthermore, its compact size and exceptional performance make it an ideal companion for premium, ultra-high-resolution mirrorless cameras such as the Nikon Z8, Z7 II and Z6 II. The fast aperture facilitates the creation of soft, round bokeh, which particularly enhances portrait photography, and other subject-driven genres where foreground / background subject operation is desirable.

Compact and lightweight

Combining a fast-aperture standard zoom with excellent portability, the Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8 Di III VXD G2 Lens for Nikon Z is remarkably compact and lightweight, measuring just 119.8mm in length and weighing a mere 550g.

Its manageable size and weight make it ideal for various shooting situations, including travel, street photography, and everyday use, and it will quickly become a preferred lens for on-the-go shooting.

High-speed AF system

Benefiting from Tamron's VXD linear motor focus mechanism, the AF drive system ensures rapid and precise autofocus performance. Whether capturing subjects from MOD to infinity or tracking fast-moving objects, the lens delivers reliable focus accuracy, even at its widest f/2.8 aperture. Furthermore, the AF motor operates quietly, making it suitable for noise-sensitive environments, for both still photography and video recording.

Close minimum object distance

With an impressive minimum object distance (MOD) of just 0.18m at the wide end, the 28-75mm F2.8 G2 lens allows for creative close-up shots. Achieving a maximum magnification ratio of 1:2.7, it enables eye catching macro photography, capturing detailed subjects while maintaining a wide background view for visually striking compositions.

Tamron Lens Utility for still photography and video

The 28-75mm F2.8 G2 is compatible with Tamron Lens Utility software developed in-house that enables users to easily update the lens to the latest firmware without going through the camera, and includes functions to support focusing operations and other actions when shooting still images or video.

For example, A-B Focus allows users to limit focusing to two pre-selected focus points, shifting focus from one subject to the other with just a click of the Focus Set Button. Users can also choose between Linear and Non-Linear, affecting how the focus shifts during manual focusing, which is especially useful for videographers.

User-friendly operation

The lens design has been refined to prioritise user-friendly operation. From the surface texture to grip performance, every aspect has been designed for excellent usability and ergonomics. The glossy black exterior is more resistant to scratches and fingerprints, while the brand ring's elegant curve adds a touch of functional beauty.

Our Verdict

This is the first time the 28-75mm F/2.8 Di III VXD G2 is made available for Nikon Z mount, and it’s a high performing standard zoom, which deserves serious consideration.

As only the fourth Tamron lens for Z cameras, the 28-75mm F/2.8 Di III VXD G2 (Model A063) offers a distinct zoom range, which is slightly wider than the outstanding 35-150mm f/2-2.8 Di III VXD Lens for Nikon Z. The two models share plenty of characteristics, which set Tamron apart from other options, such as the high-speed VXD autofocus system and second-generation design updates.

For creators this means the benefits of a versatile zoom, which is well-suited for capturing various subjects, from portraits to landscapes, cityscapes, travel and more. Its moisture-resistant structure and fluorine coating protect the front element, while the BBAR-G2 Coating minimises flare and ghosting. Despite these enhancements, the lens remains compact and lightweight, making it an excellent choice for everyday use.

When you consider the excellent image quality, improved resolution, focusing, and design updates, the Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8 Di III VXD G2 Lens for Nikon Z is a tempting proposition. A close focusing distance allows for creative close-ups, and the lens also offers enhanced usability with Tamron Lens Utility software, making it a versatile and user-friendly option for photographers and videographers.
