My main objective isn’t to provide an in-depth ‘review’ of the lens, but I hope to offer the reader a few insights in terms of how the lens performs from a landscape photographer’s perspective. A photographer who usually prefers to shoot ultra wide angle. I received the Tamron 17–28 in October and have had time to play around with the lens a little; enough to form an opinion and to shoot some example images (by adding a Dark Reader extension to your browser it will be possible to view the images on black).
A few days ago, the $900 Tamron 17-28mm f/2.8 Di III RXD for Sony FE was officially released for preorders. The new lens seems to have got many Sony users excited. So excited, that Tamron can’t keep up with their demands, so the lens won’t be shipped on the scheduled 25 July to everyone who preorders it.
