Tamron 50-300mm f/4.5-6.3 Di III VC VXD Lens for Sony Summary

Combining 50mm at the wide end with a 300mm super telephoto reach at the other end, the Tamron 50-300mm f/4.5-6.3 Di III VC VXD Lens for Sony E full-frame mirrorless cameras (FE) delivers a unique zoom range for creators.

Tamron is well known for creating high-quality lenses for Sony with unique zoom ranges, including the extremely popular 35-150mm f/2-2.8 Di III VXD for Sony E. The latest 50-300mm follows this trend while remaining impressively compact and lightweight at just 665g. Despite this low weight, it packs an advanced optical design capable of rendering extremely high image quality throughout the versatile zoom range.

With a 50-300mm range available, users can capture diverse subjects including portraits, street photography, landscapes, wildlife, and travel, making it an excellent all-in-one zoom for video content as well.

Adding to its versatility is a fast and quiet linear focus system, close minimum object distance, and outstanding magnification of 2:1, which essentially enables half life-size tele-macro photography for frame-filling subjects.

Other benefits of this model (A069) include proprietary lens coatings that reduce the effects of ghosting and flare, a front element fluorine coating, and a compact 67mm thread to add cost-effective lens filters for any style of content creation.

Tamron 50-300mm f/4.5-6.3 Di III VC VXD Lens for Sony in More Detail

Unique Telephoto Lens with 50mm Wide End

The Tamron 50-300mm F/4.5-6.3 VC redefines the standard for 300mm-class telephoto zoom lenses by offering amore  versatile focal range starting at 50mm. This wider starting point enhances photographic possibilities, catering to users who need greater flexibility and a broader perspective.

Unlike traditional 70-300mm lenses, the 50-300mm begins at 50mm, incorporating Tamron's VC (Vibration Compensation) mechanism. This design ensures superior image quality throughout its range while maintaining the compact size that Tamron lenses are known for. At just 150mm (5.9 inches) in length and weighing only 665g (23.5 ounces), this lens is remarkably portable.

Its compact dimensions and lightweight construction provide excellent balance, particularly when paired with an APS-C camera, ensuring exceptional mobility. This makes it easier for photographers to focus on capturing the perfect shot without being encumbered due to unnecessarily heavy equipment.

Uncompromising Optical Performance Across the 50-300mm Zoom Range

The Tamron 50-300mm F/4.5-6.3 VC lens is engineered for outstanding optical performance throughout its extensive zoom range. Its optical construction features 19 elements in 14 groups, meticulously optimised for high image quality at every focal length.

The inclusion of two XLD (eXtra Low Dispersion) and two LD (Low Dispersion) elements effectively minimises chromatic aberrations and other optical distortions. Additionally, Tamron's BBAR-G2 (Broad-Band Anti-Reflection Generation 2) Coating significantly reduces ghosting and flare, ensuring crisp and clear images even in challenging backlit conditions.

This sophisticated optical design delivers exceptional clarity and contrast, bringing out fine details with stunning resolution. The lens produces sharp images from the centre to the corners, with beautifully soft bokeh that enhances subject isolation for a dramatic effect.

High-Speed and High-Precision AF with Superb Subject Tracking

The Tamron 50-300mm F/4.5-6.3 VC lens features Tamron's advanced VXD (Voice-coil eXtreme-torque Drive) linear motor focus mechanism, delivering high-speed and high-precision autofocus performance. This system allows users to quickly lock in accurate focus from the minimum object distance (MOD) to infinity.

The autofocus system excels in subject tracking, ensuring precise focus on moving subjects, making it ideal for capturing sudden or erratic movements with accuracy, especially when shooting with sports-orientated cameras like the flagship A1 and A9 III. The VXD linear motor also minimises drive noise and vibrations during focusing, providing a quiet operation that is perfect for both still photography and video recording in noise-sensitive environments including weddings or nature.

Exceptional Close-Range Performance for Half-Macro Shooting

The Tamron 50-300mm F/4.5-6.3 VC lens excels in close-range shooting, offering impressive 1:2 half-macro capabilities (half life size). At the 50mm wide end, the lens boasts a minimum object distance (MOD) of just 0.22m and a maximum magnification ratio of 1:2, allowing photographers to capture subjects up close with exceptional detail.

Even at the 300mm telephoto end, the lens maintains strong close-up performance with an MOD of 0.9m and a maximum magnification ratio of 1:3.1. This versatility enables photographers to highlight intricate details in their subjects, providing creative opportunities for unique compositions across all sorts of genres including macro nature, flowers and insects.

Proprietary VC Mechanism

The Tamron 50-300mm F/4.5-6.3 VC lens features Tamron's proprietary VC (Vibration Compensation) mechanism, designed to provide superior image stabilisation. When used with an APS-C camera like the Sony A6700, the full-frame equivalent focal length ranges from 75 to 450mm, making the VC mechanism especially beneficial at the telephoto end when shake is prevalent.

The VC system effectively reduces camera shake, ensuring sharp and clear images even in challenging conditions such as dimly lit interiors or low-light landscapes. This advanced stabilisation minimises the degradation of picture quality, allowing photographers to capture crisp, blur-free photos and smooth, steady videos. Previous lenses like the 150-500mm F/5-6.7 Di III VC VXD and 50-400mm F/4.5-6.3 Di III VC VXD have shown the effectiveness of Tamron’s stabilisation mechanism.

Additionally, at focal lengths up to 100mm, AI (Artificial Intelligence) technologies provide additional compensation tailored for videography. This enhances the lens's performance in capturing high-quality, stable video footage, contributing to this being an excellent choice for photographers and videographers.

Convenience and Operability

  • 67mm filter size is compatible with most other Tamron lenses for Sony mirrorless cameras, offering easy filter swaps
  • Focus set button enhances customisation by allowing for the assignment of camera functions and Tamron Lens Utility functions
  • User-friendly design with enhanced overall lens design ensures intuitive and efficient operation for photographers of all levels
  • Zoom lock mechanism prevents lens creep during transport, ensuring stability and convenience
