Telephoto zoom takes you closer to the action
The world’s smallest and lightest* telephoto zoom lens for Sony full-frame E-mount mirrorless cameras

The 70-300mm F/4.5-6.3 Di III RXD (Model A047) for Sony full-frame E-mount mirrorless cameras is a telephoto zoom lens designed and created so photographers of all skill levels can enjoy high quality images comfortably. It achieves the world’s smallest size and lightest weight, coming in at 148mm (5.8 in) long with a maximum diameter of 77mm, and weighing just 545g (19.2 oz). With special emphasis on resolving power, Tamron has deployed special lens elements appropriately arranged to correct chromatic aberration, generally very strong in a telephoto lens, as well as other aberrations. Users can enjoy high-resolution images combined with the stunning bokeh qualities that are achievable only with a telephoto lens. The lens also incorporates the RXD (Rapid eXtra-silent stepping Drive) stepping motor unit, a high-speed precision AF drive system that is remarkably quiet. The 70-300mm F4.5-6.3 is a versatile lens for photographing landscapes, sports and other action, pets and wildlife and more. The lens also demonstrates its potential for portrait shooting, casual snapshots and scenarios that require you to be mobile and shoot handheld, like sporting events. The apparent image compression and the close-up effects characteristic of telephoto lenses naturally amplify photographic expression. Zooming in on distant objects and making them appear closer is one of the joys of telephoto shooting. This zoom lens provides an entryway into that new world.

High quality images with beautiful, dreamy bokeh
The lens is made up of 15 elements in 10 groups with an appropriate arrangement of LD (Low Dispersion) lens elements. Aberrations such as axial chromatic aberration (which tends to occur in telephoto lens designs) have been well corrected. The 300mm end, which receives particularly frequent use in a telephoto zoom, provides excellent high-resolution performance from the center of the image all the way to the corners. Stunning bokeh (intentional background blur qualities) are another remarkable feature of this new lens.

Superb AF keeps it sharp and quiet
The AF drive incorporates an RXD (Rapid eXtra-silent stepping Drive) stepping motor unit. RXD uses an actuator that is able to precisely control the rotational angle of the motor, allowing it to drive the focusing lens without passing through a reduction gear. The addition of a sensor that detects the position of the lens to a high degree of accuracy enables high-speed and precise AF, which allows you to maintain razor-sharp focus when shooting continually moving subjects or filming video. The lens is also remarkably quiet, eliminating concerns of drive sounds being picked up while shooting video.

Tamron offers a unified system of lenses with 67mm filter size
Combine the 70-300mm F4.5-6.3 with other members of Tamron’s lineup of 67mm filter size lenses and cover an even wider range of scenes. The shared 67mm filter size enables efficiency in filter use; the same polarizer filters, or other filters, and lens caps can be shared between all models.

Built with Mirrorless in Mind
Tamron’s new 70-300mm F4.5-6.3 zoom is compatible with many of the advanced features that are specific to mirrorless cameras. This includes:
– In-camera lens correction (shading, chromatic aberration, distortion)
– Fast Hybrid AF
– Direct Manual Focus (DMF)
– Camera-based lens unit firmware updates
* Features vary by camera. Please consult your camera’s instruction manual for details.

Sony a7SIII vs ARRI ALEXA Mini LF vs Sony VENICE 6k

We have all waited a long time for the Sony a7SIII and now that it is here Indy Mogul is comparing it to cameras multiple times its price ($60,000 not including $20,000 lenses) to see how it stacks up. Below is a summary of their findings and watch the above video for more details.

  • Still some megenta shift on the Sony a7SIII using LOG
  • Probably going to be a lot of cinematographers using the a7SIII for B came footage for the VENICE 6k
  • It was easier to match the a7SIII to the VENICE 6k for color
  • Both cinima cameras had higher end glass on them for these comparisons
  • It should be fine to mix and match the a7SIII to the VENICE 6k
  • For the ISO testing they used the same glass on every channel
  • ALEXA Mini LF maxed out at 3200 ISO which is good qualiity
  • VENICE 6k maxed out at 10,000 ISO and it looks usable here
  • The Sony a7SIII is the ISO king as they take it all the way up to 102,400 ISO, which still looks good compared to the ALEXA at 3200 ISO and then they go beyond to 409,600 ISO
  • The Sony a7SIII isnt like a ALEXA Mini LF or VENICE 6k, but you can get very good image quality and crazy low light
  • It’s impressive that you can get a fully capible cinima setup now with a camera like the Sony a7SIII or Fujifilm X-T4 for far less than cameras like the ALEXA Mini LF or VENICE 6k
  • The Sony a7SIII should have anything you would want
  • Everything shot here was internal and the image quality would hold up on the big screen

Optical Limits: Sony FE 200-600mm f/5.6-6.3 G OSS – It Alone May Be A Reason For Buying Into The Sony System

I have been recomending this lens to friends since launch due to its excellent price point and performance, but now Optical Limits has released their review and they consider this lens to be a reason to buy into the Sony echosystm of cameras if you’re into telephoto glass. High quality long glass was really the last area for Sony to concquore and they have done a great job on their first attempts. Below is a summer of Optical Limits findings and you can read the full review here.

The Sony FE 200-600mm f/5.6-6.3 G OSS is not a perfect lens but it is no less than a steal for the money and it alone may be a reason for buying into the Sony system – if you are really into such long tele lenses. The Sony lens is, unsurprisingly, very sharp in the lower to mid parts of its zoom range. At 600mm, the corner quality suffers somewhat whereas the center quality remains impressively high. Most photographers won’t probably ever notice this but there are limits when it comes to astrophotography here. Image distortions are present but can be handled via image auto-correction activated. This will also take care of the lateral CAs which are on the high side. The native vignetting is typical for such a lens. A positive surprise is the quality of the bokeh which is (substantially) better than most lenses in this class although prime lenses are better still.

The build quality of the Sony lens is superb thanks to a tightly assembled, metal body. Sony also didn’t forget to implement dust- and moisture-resistant seals. We can’t emphasize enough that it is unusual for a sanely priced super-tele zoom lens to have a constant physical size. Other than the obvious advantage regarding air movement within the lens, it also allows for a much smoother (easier) zoom experience compared to the usual “air pumps”. The AF is pretty fast and noiseless. We were also impressed by the real-world efficiency of the image stabilizer.

The Sony FE 200-600mm f/5.6-6.3 G OSS is a big and heavy lens and mounted to a small Sony camera, the setup can feel a bit unbalanced so adding a vertical grip may be a sensible investment for improving handling. Regarding the sum of its qualities combined with the very reasonable price tag, the verdict can only be – highly recommended!

Sony a7IV and New $5,999 Professional Sony Camera Leaked

Photorumors is reporting that Sony has two cameras coming in 2021. One is the Sony a7IV and the other is a professional top of the line camera that could be a Sony a9III or maybe a Sony a9R or even a Sony a9S if Sony is looking to expand their a9 lineup of professional cameras.

Sony hasn’t really reached up to the $5,999 price point with their still cameras so this should be something completely new, but I would venture to guess with a9 in the name. Either way we will know soon since this camera is rumored to be Q1 of 2021.

In Q1 2021 Sony will launch a new top of the line camera with the following specifications:

  • Bigger and truly pro body
  • 9.44M dots EVF
  • Newly developed sensor
  • 8K video recording with no overheating
  • Dual card slots
  • New menu systems from A7S3
  • IBIS with Steady shot active mode
  • Everything about this camera is new
  • Price $5,999

Sony a7 IV will be launch sometime in 2021 (probably Q3) with the following specifications:

  •  Slight bigger and more comfortable body than A7III
  • 3.68M dot EVF
  • 1.44M dot LCD
  • Newly developed 30 MP sensor
  • 4K 60p with no overheating
  • Dual SD and CFexpress Type A card slots
  • New menu system from A7S3
  • 5-axis in-body stabilization with Steady shot active mode
  • Price $2,499

Prototypes for both cameras are already out in the wild.
