Sony G Master Alternative?
We are excepting the new Tamron 17-28mm f/2.8 is going to be the same as the Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8 in terms of the image quality, build quality and more importantly price which is very less if you compare to the Sony native lenses. This lens is going to be very useful for low light and wide shot because it has f/2.8 aperture which produces better bokeh and low light performance.
Tamron 17-28mm f/2.8 Review
Focal length: 17-28mm
Format: Full Frame
Minimum focus distance: 19cm
Tamron is going to release three lenses Tamron FE 17-28mm F2.8, at the same time SP 35mm F1.4, 35-150mm F2.8-4 and the idea is Tamron wants to complete the holy trinity lenses for the third party users who can’t afford the expensive native lens.
Price and Release Date
And while the Sony 16-35 f/2.8 GM is known for its exceptionally high-quality optics and has a longer zoom range, But the Tamron 17-28 in the other side will also be about 2cm shorter and perhaps 1/2 pound lighter. And $1000 less expensive? Let’s hope.
