Best value lens ever

Cheaper at …Cheaper at Clifton...https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/tamron-28-75mm-f28-di-iii-rxd-lens-sony-e-mount-black-friday-offer-3336782


Clifton pays their tax too and deserve the trade more so I’d buy it from them. Good shop!

True. I think it was earlier but yes, best price (and still pretty good) now, with the benefit of Amazon's delivery options.
Is this compatible with my Sony A7ii??

Is this compatible with my Sony A7ii??


Did you honestly just ask that?
does anyone have this on the a6000 series cameras? how does it compare to the standard apsc zoom lenses in terms of iq?
I suggest to seriously consider Sony FE 24-105mm as a slighty more expensive option which has more zoom range and image stabilization + sharper corners. Yes, it is more expensive, but it's worth.

f4 though?

Yes, but f2.8 vs f4.0 on full-frame is negligible difference in either bokeh or ISO - people overrate 1 stop difference, they just want to have the option, but practically f/4.0 on full frame is still shallow and enough. One stop difference is offset by having image stabilization in lens (which btw Tamron lacks). And if one needs more blur for the background (i.e. portraits), usually can step back, zoom in and get the same effect.

My main camera is Panasonic GX80 with Micro Four Thirds sensor and Panasonic Leica 12-60mm f/2.8-4.0. And it is the best combo ever and I rarely take anywhere my Sony A7RII.
And please don't even start with "yeah, but people have different needs" argument. In the end it just boils down to skill and having a good eye. People take amazing photos with their phones, small sensors etc.

my 2 cents

Sorry but that is simply not true.

F2.8-F4 is double the light at which is significant when you're shooting in low light conditions. I couldn't get by with an f4 lens. There is a reason that 2.8 is so much more expensive than f4.

Plus - you cannot achieve a 2.8 look with an f4 lens.

You probably missed the bit where I am talking in the context of the full-frame. Of course, going by the book argument of double light etc. is always the easiest - but I am talking about actual and practical negligible differences between f/2.8 and f/4.0 on full-frame sensors. One stop difference might would make sense if you're pushing between 12500 and 25000 ISO - and even then depending on the sensor one has.

And please let's not begin with "the 2.8 look" or like many others "full-frame look". I bet you couldn't tell a difference between f2.8 and slightly zoomed-in f4.0 bokeh side-by-side.
Yes, F2.8 is much more expensive because of more glass and better optical qualities required when lens is wide open at f/2.8 in terms of corner sharpness - manufacturing becomes more complicated, hence the size and price.

Still incorrect for full frame. There is a clear difference between f2.8 and f4, it'll make a difference at any ISO and aperture is arguably the greatest tool in the triangle.

F2.8 is definitely a different look, slightly zoomed in won't look the same though will it, low light won't look the same - if this was the case they wouldn't bother with f2.8 zooms. F2.8 is more expensive because it's a tool needed for low light and shallow DOF that cannot be achieved with an F4 lens.

I do however, very much like the 24-105.

Hi, Are you on instagram, would like to see the pics you have taken
it would be nice if you both like to post pics here

Just try to figure out how good have to be in order to bring clients. Looks good enough to me, but yeah, I am just an amateur(although I have sell some stock and been paid £1 and free takeaways to take website photos of my mate's chippy )
