Introducing the Tamron 70–300 f/4.5–6.3 Di III RXD

Coming late October, the Tamron 70–300mm f/4.5–6.3 Di III RXD will be the smallest and lightest full-frame E-mount 300mm-capable zoom lens in the world. What, exactly, does that mean? We’re talking a weight of just over a pound (19 oz) and a length of only 5.8 inches. 300mm in a barrel that can fit on a 4×6 print? Now that’s what I call travel convenience!

But wait—there’s more!

To spread a little cheer as the year starts to close, you’ll receive a free HGX Prime circular polarizer with any of Tamron’s other FE zoom lenses. As the highest quality CPL from ProMaster, that’s a $139.99 value, at no extra cost to you. And remember, all of Tamron’s FE lenses share a 67mm filter size, so that polarizer will be compatible with the whole series.

Eligible lenses include the 28–75mm F/2.8 Di III RXD (A036), 17–28mm f/2.8 Di III RXD (A046), 70–180mm f/2.8 Di III VXD (A056), and the 28–200mm f/2.8-5.6 Di III RXD (A071). This offer will be good through January 3rd, 2021.

As we’ve come to expect of this series of lenses, Tamron has focused on maximizing convenience without sacrificing quality. A few highlighted features:

  • The RXD (Rapid eXtra-silent Drive) uses a stepping motor to drive the precision autofocus system without ruining the audio in your videos.
  • An emphasis in engineering on avoiding the chromatic aberration common in long zoom lenses.
  • Surprisingly nice bokeh for a compact telephoto lens.
  • High quality coatings minimizing light distortion and protecting your investment.
