Price includes VAT, free shipping

The new 70-300mm F/4.5-6.3 is the first model designed specifically for mirrorless system cameras with full-frame sensors. The engineers aimed to make telephoto photography an effortless pleasure for photographers,
regardless of their experience level. The 70-300mm F/4.5-6.3 not only offers exceptionally high image quality, but with a length of 148mm, a diameter of 77mm and a weight of only 545g, it is also the world's most compact and lightest 70-300mm zoom lens in its class. The telephoto zoom makes it easier than ever to zoom in on distant subjects. The long focal length is not only suitable for sports, wildlife and nature photography, it also provides a flattering perspective for portraiture and street photography.

Used on a mirrorless system camera with a full-frame or APS-C sensor, the 70-300mm F/4.5-6.3 forms an optimally balanced unit. An effective focal length of 450mm (KB equivalent) is achieved on the APS-C sensor. The splash-proof housing makes the 70-300mm F/4.5-6.3 the ideal companion for outdoor and travel. Like the other models in the Tamron E-series, it has a 67mm filter thread, so a polarizing or gray filter will fit on all models. The lens is also compatible with Sony's advanced camera features, such as Fast Hybrid AF and Eye Detection AF, which make shooting even easier.

The very well made Tamron 4.5-6.3/70-300 mm Di III RXD should be stopped down despite the existing light weakness.

  • PositiveThe most striking features of the lens, apart from its very good imaging performance, are its compactness and light weight.
  • NegativeUnfortunately, it lacks an optical image stabiliser, which is unusual for a telephoto zoom. It is also considerably slower than its three siblings.

High telephoto performance at an affordable price was the focus of the Tamron 70-300mm, F4.5-6.3 Di III RXD. The lens delivers this and also scores with its compact size and low weight. This comes at the price of a missing image stabiliser and relatively low speed.
