Tamron 70-300mm F/4.5-6.3 Di III RXD Lens Summary

The new Tamron 70-300mm f/4.5-6.3 Di III RXD lens for full frame Sony E-mount claims the current title of world's smallest size and lightest telephoto zoom at this range. It measures just 148mm long with a diameter of 77mm and weighs just 545g. Despite its’ ultra compact form the lens has been designed to provide versatile zoom capabilities for a number of subjects including sports, action and wildlife photography. Optics include 15 elements in 10 groups with LD (Low Dispersion) lens elements, combining to deliver excellent high resolution performance from the centre to the corners.

Autofocus is fast and quiet thanks to a Rapid eXtra-silent stepping Drive and the lens maintains full functionality with Sony’s renowned AF system, including Face and Eye Detect. Further compatibility comes in the form of integration with Sony mirrorless camera stabilisation and the Tamron 70-300mm f/4.5-6.3 Di III RXD lens benefits from all available in-body stabilisation. Useability is further enhanced through the inclusion of comprehensive moisture sealing allowing photographers to work throughout inclement weather. The lens also benefits from Tamron’s anti-reflective coatings, providing more crisp, sharper images with high contrast.

Our Verdict

Tamron has been impressing photographers across brands with their latest lens offerings. Somehow they manage to consistently design extremely competent lenses at competitive prices and the 70-300mm f/4.5-6.3 Di III RXD lens is set to continue this trend. Sony full-frame users will at some time rely on advanced AF functions for which their cameras are renowned and Tamron has fully integrated this lens with Sony’s Fast Hybrid AF, Eye AF and Direct Manual Focus (DMF) systems. Further compatibility includes body stabilisation which allows this lens to be used hand-held with sharper results, drawing from Sony IBIS.

The size and weight of this telephoto is quite extraordinary for this focal range and users will be able to travel anywhere with a compact sized zoom, which also delivers excellent image quality. The consistent 67mm filter size which Tamron designs throughout their lens range for Sony allows photographers to invest in multiple high quality optics which all use the same filter thread. This is very useful for polarisers and ND filters which are often employed for outdoor work or any other system such as LEE filters.

Any photographer working in the mid to telephoto range would be well advised to consider this excellent new offering from Tamron. It is compact, light and provides excellent results with full integration with Sony systems.

We Love

  • Ultra compact and lightweight all-in-one telephoto zoom able to travel anywhere
  • Benefits from full compatibility with Sony systems including Face and Eye AF and stabilisation
  • Exceptionally quiet Rapid eXtra-silent stepping Drive for quick, assured focus in near silence
  • Weather sealed for uninterrupted outdoor work from sports and action to wildlife photography
  • Quality assured thanks to Tamron’s free 5 year extended warranty for ultimate peace of mind
