What is the difference between Tamron 28-200mm and Sony FE 24-240mm

   Recently, Tamron officially released the 28-200mm F/2.8-5.6 Di III RXD lens, which is also the seventh full-frame lens released by Tamron for the Sony E mount. At a similar focal length, Sony has a FE 24-240mm F3.5-6.3 OSS full-frame high-magnification telephoto zoom lens. Let’s take a look at the difference between this new Tamron lens and Sony’s original lens.

In terms of price, Tamron’s new lens is priced at US$729, which is about RMB 5,100. Sony’s FE 24-240mm F3.5-6.3 OSS is currently priced at RMB 5050. The two are equally matched. It seems that as the first The Tamron of the three manufacturers does not have much competitive advantage in price.

If Tamron does not have an advantage in pricing, there must be other bright spots to make up for it. From the point of view of materials, Sony uses a structure of 17 elements in 12 groups, 5 aspherical lenses, and 1 ED low-dispersion glass lens, which is quite satisfactory. Tamron’s lens structure includes 18 elements in 14 groups, including aspherical lenses, composite aspherical lenses, XLD ultra-low-dispersion lenses, and LD low-dispersion lenses. It can be seen that this time Tamron used a variety of special material lenses to suppress chromatic aberration and reduce the production of glare and ghosting.

In terms of weight, Tamron’s 28-200mm F/2.8-5.6 Di III RXD has a focal length not as wide as Sony’s 24mm-240mm, and the volume is relatively lighter. Tamron is 117mm long and weighs 575g. Sony weighs about 780g, and Sony weighs about 200g.

   The aperture of this Tamron lens is larger than Sony’s F3.5-6.3. At the 28mm end, the maximum aperture is F2.8, and the maximum aperture of 150-200mm is F5.6, while the Sony’s maximum aperture at the 200mm end has shrunk to F6.3. So, judging only from the parameters, Sony can capture objects farther away, but when using the 150mm-200mm telephoto end to capture objects, with the advantage of large aperture, Tamron should be able to achieve better depth of field effects.

According to the description of Tamron’s official website, another highlight of this new head is its excellent close-up performance. The shortest shooting distance of this Tamron lens is 0.19m at the wide-angle end of 28mm, the maximum shooting magnification is 1:3.1, the shortest shooting distance at the telephoto end is 0.8m, and the maximum shooting magnification is 1:3.8. In terms of parameters, Sony’s FE 24-240mm F3.5-6.3 OSS has the closest focusing distance between 0.5m and 0.8m, and the maximum magnification is about 0.27.

   But Sony’s FE 24-240mm F3.5-6.3 OSS lens has built-in optical image stabilization. Tamron did not mention the image stabilization effect of this 28-200mm F/2.8-5.6 lens.

   In summary, the pricing of these two lenses is not much different, both from wide-angle to telephoto end, Sony’s focal length is slightly wider, wide-angle end to 24mm, telephoto end to 240mm, but Tamron’s lens is more lightweight. Tamron’s lens has a larger aperture and excellent close-up capability. Sony’s FE 24-240mm F3.5-6.3 OSS has built-in optical image stabilization.

   But these analyses are based on the comparison of the two parameters, and the specific image quality, anti-shake, and close-up capabilities of the new Tamron lens still have to wait for the official release. We have evaluated it before we can draw a conclusion. .
