The Tamron 28-300mm f/3.5-6.3 Di VC PZD Lens for Nikon is a wide-angle to telephoto zoom lens for Nikon F-mount full-frame and APS-C cameras. It provides users with an extremely versatile all-purpose lens in a compact design and on APS-C cameras it has a zoom range equivalent of 42-450mm. Also, it has an aperture range from f/3.5-6.3 to f/22-40 across the zoom range.
The 28-300mm is also capable of decent macro capabilities with a reproduction ratio of 1:3.5 when zoomed in to 300mm. This is due to a minimum focus distance of 19.3\". Also, for excellent image quality, numerous special glass elements are used in the lens design in addition to Broad-Band Anti-Reflection coatings. There are one Hybrid Aspherical element, three Molded-Glass elements, four Low Dispersion elements, one Extra Refractive Index element, and one Ultra-Extra Refractive Index element.
For general use, there is a Piezo Drive autofocus system which is powered by a fast and quiet standing-wave ultrasonic motor. This allows you to quickly achieve focus for sharp images. There is also Vibration Compensation which provides optical image stabilization that reduces camera shake at slow shutter speeds and longer focal lengths. And, included with the lens are a flower-shaped lens hood as well as front and rear lens caps.
From the Manufacturer
Unleash the picture power of your digital SLR with this remarkable new compact, lightweight all-in-one zoom lens. Covering an impressive 10.7X, wide-to-longtelephotozoom range on both full-frame and APS-C format digital SLRs it gets down to an incredible 0.49m (19.3") at 300mm in Macro mode for dramatic framefilling close-ups.
And to optimize its outstanding real-world image quality we’ve built in our new high-tech, state-of-the-art VC (Vibration Compensation) system. The cutting edge 18-element and 13-group design of the 28-300mm VC lens incorporates XR (extra refractive-index ), LD ( low dispersion) and AD (anomalous dispersion ) glass as well as hybrid and GM (glass molded) aspherical elements to deliver exquisite sharpness and color correction over its extended range. The esteemed Di ( Digitally Integrated ) designation is your assurance of optimum digital and analog imaging performance. Capturing razor sharp handheld images just got
AF28-300mm F/3.5-6.3 XR Di VC Features
Lenses are designed for exclusive use on digital cameras with smaller-size imagers and inherit all of the benefits of our Di products. These lenses are not designed for conventional cameras and digital cameras with image sensors larger than 24mm x 16mm.
Vibration Compensation (VC)
Camera shake can ruin your photos, particularly at telephoto or in low light. Tamron's state-of-the-art Vibration Compensation mechanism incorporated into the award-winning 28-300mm zoom gives you blur-free hand-held images for incredible results! Finally, the technology you need in the lens you want.
- VC delivers blur free - handheld images for incredible results
- VC mechanism employs a three-coil system
- Lens element compensates for vibration using 3-steel balls (making movement quiet & smooth)
- Exceptional images at slower shutter speeds – reduces the need for a tripod
- Bring out contrast to motion & stillness
- Eliminate the need to shoot with a Flash
Low Dispersion (LD)
Low dispersion (LD) glass elements in a lens help reduce chromatic aberration; the tendency of light of different colors to come to different points of focus at the image plane. Chromatic aberration reduces the sharpness of an image, but glass with an extremely lowdispersion index, has less of a tendency to separate (defract) a ray of light into a rainbow of colors. This characteristic allows the lens designer to effectively compensate for chromatic aberration at the center of the field (on axis), a particular problem at long focal lengths (the telephoto end of the zoom range), and for lateral chromatic aberration (towards the edges of the field) that often occurs at short focal lengths (the wide-angle end of the zoom range.)
Extra Refractive Index Glass (XR)
Extra Refractive Index (XR) glass can bend light rays at steeper angles, thereby decreasing the physical length of the lens while enhancing imaging performance by minimizing optical aberrations. This has allowed Tamron to develop a line of shorter, smaller-diameter, lighter lenses without sacrificing lens speed, and actually upgrading image quality compared to older designs. XR glass is costlier than conventional glass but it yields enhanced optical power distribution, making possible many of the outstanding and innovative lens designs that bear the XR designation. XR glass, with its superior light-bending power, makes it possible to design a short-barrel lens with the same light-gathering ability (aperture value) as a long-barrel lens—even with a smaller lens diameter. By using this principle Tamron has been able to shorten the length of the entire optical system and produce lighter, more compact lenses of the same speed, and also to provide greater zoom ranges in lenses that are much more convenient to carry by hand.
Aspherical Elements (ASL) Provide the Ultimate in Image Quality and Compactness)
Tamron uses several hybrid aspherical lens elements in many lenses bearing the Aspherical designation. These innovative optics allow us to achieve the ultimate in image quality, and at the same time produce lenses that offer remarkable zoom ranges in extraordinarily compact packages. By perfecting theses cutting-edge advances for series production, Tamron has advanced the state of optical design, and virtually eliminated spherical aberration and image distortion from the high-power-zoom series.Through the effective application of Hybrid Aspherical Technology, one lens elemen tcan take the place of multiple elements without compromising performance. This is what allows us to produce remarkably compact long-range lenses that deliver a uniformly high level of image quality at all focal lengths and apertures.
Internal Focus (IF)
Internal focusing (IF) provides numerous practical benefits to photographers including a non-rotating front filter ring that facilitates the positioning of polarizing and graduated filters, and more predictable handling because the lens length does not change during focusing. Even more important, Tamron’s Internal Focusing (IF) system provides a much closer minimum focusing distance (MFD) throughout its entire focusing range. In addition, IF improves optical performance by minimizing illumination loss at the corners of the image field, and helps to suppress other aberrations that become more troublesome at different focusing positions.

Pros: cost less than a Canon 28-300 at $2,600.00.
Picture quality is not all that bad for indoor wedding photography. (Comparing 'L' glass with Tamron can't be done)
The Tamron lens is VERY light compared to the Canon 3+ lbs.
Cons: Hunts for focusing when room light is lacking. A whole lot worse if the AF is on. I leave the AF off.
Build quality is not even close to Canon 'L' glass.
Not weather protected.
Hand focusing is difficult and takes valuable time when in situations where you have to work fast.
Overall: Glad I bought it, just wished it had better quality. But you pay for what you get.
The construction seems solid; the focusing smooth; the weight - ideal. The only thing I really do not like is that the lens does not stay where it is at. This is not a tripod lens unless shooting at 28mm or 300 mm. Anything in between could be troublesome. There is no "lens creep." There is, instead, "lens swoosh." Tip the camera up or down and it really moves to the opposite end quickly (swoosh!!!).
I generally keep it locked at the 28mm end.
Indoor, low light condition, the lens performs well, and the VC really helps get the shot in one go. It has made a huge difference since I had very slow f/4-f/5.6 lens 35-85mm and f/4-f6.7 for 100-300mm.
Outdoor pictures, are just fabulous. Absoloutely sharp, crisp, more so at 200-250 range with VC on.
Compared to Nikor 18-200, f/3.5-f5.6 , the lens is lighter shorter, but there brighter image with Nikor lens, although the shutter speed and sharpness remains the same.
Macro , option is a definitive plus, i could have never imagined doing 300mm , at one and a half feet from the flower. Would post some pictures if allowed.
the only glitch that i found so far was, seeking focus at 250-300 range, but as long as I am not doing sports shooting, it is acceptatble.
I have compared this to canon f/1.4 50mm and the pictures are comparable , atleast outdoors.
I have given it 5 stars since for the price, i could not have asked more. Excellent lens from a amature point of view
It is also easy on hands, not too heavy. Great walk around lens for sure.
I have now used it for 4 months. Some shots are very disappointing. Specially the focusing is very slow.
Very poor in low light conditions. I will change my star rating to 3+ now.
Its great outdoor lens. Poor quality in low light.
Looking back at the time I have spent with this lens, I don't think I would purchase another one, I would spend the extra money and go after a more expensive lens. I still have use this lens too this day.
