I have the Tamron 28-75 f2.8 and it's pretty good for the price.

The lowest price I've seen this go for was £499 on Amazon.co.uk back in November. I live in Canada and the total price with postage and packing was £506.60 (about $656.55 USD). Despite the excellent price, I decided to cancel my order and use the money towards a used Sony 24-105mm.

the 28-75 is a great lens.

on my a9 i get about 10 fps with continuous autofocus, and even then it misses sometimes. for portraits, landscapes, street photography etc it's awesome just don't expect to be blown away for fast action

and yes it's sharp enough to use with the a7r IV, i've tested it on there and it resolves just fine.

This is especially great paired with the EDU rebates, if you qualify for the $50 and $100 off, respectively.

Nice. I bought both of these through Greentoe as well. $780 for the 28-75 in August, $820 for the 17-28 in October. Nice to see prices down a little now. I also received both education rebates from Tamron (I'm staff at a university), so got $150 back. Both fantastic lenses.

Do you have the latest firmware? There was an update to improve auto focus.

It isn't as good as native glass but still very usable for sports on my a7iii. It might miss on some frames but at 10 fps, chances are you will still get the shot the vast majority of the time in a nearby frame.

Pretty sure it's the latest version (3), that firmware came out in January of 2019.

I mean yeah it's acceptable for half the price of the g-master, but I was just saying you won't hit as often Smilie

Ok then that's the latest firmware.

I usually use my Sony 70-200 when shooting sports, so it's not much of a downside for me, plus the 24-70gm is bigger and heavier than the Tamron, which to me is a worthwhile trade off since I can use this Tamron 28-75 lens all day at Disneyland or whatever, whereas I wouldn't take the GM in that situation due to size and weight.

So what's with Tamron forcing people to buy their little dock, just to perform firmware updates that are actually bug fixes? Every other lens manufacturer has allowed firmware updates via the camera: you can go to the about screen in menus, and see both the camera version number and current lens version number, facilitating updates without having to purchase a proprietary hardware device.
