We’ll compare these two mid-range zooms and help you decide which is best for your shooting style. The Tamron offers more reach and value, while the Sigma has a wider view and a tank-like construction. By the end, you’ll be able to tell which of these high-capability lenses deserves a spot in your camera bag.
Introducing the Tamron 24-70mm F/2.8 Art and Sigma 24-75mm F/2.8 DiIII RXD
Two of the best zoom lenses for Sony mirrorless cameras are the Tamron 28-75mm F/2.8 Di III RXDThen, there is the Sigma 24-70mm F/2.8 DG DN Art. Both offer fast f/2.8 continuous apertures, high performance optics, and weather sealing. But which one would you choose?
The Tamron is the lighter and more compact of the two. Weighing just 19.4 ounces, this lens won’t weigh down your Sony a7 III or a9. It’s also more affordable, typically running a few hundred dollars less than the Sigma. The Tamron’s focal range starts at 28mm, which may be wide enough for some shooters. However, if you need to go wider, the Sigma’s 24mm reach could make a big difference.
Both lenses produce stunning images with sharp details, nice Bokeh, and minimal distortion. Sigma does have the slight edge in sharpness and color contrast. It also has a stronger build, though it is heavier at 31.5 pounds.
Fast autofocus and F/2.8 on either lens are great for low light and action photography. The Tamron is faster to focus, so it’s better for moving objects. But the Sigma’s superior optics may result in slightly better bokeh and subject isolation.
In the end, you can’t go wrong with either of these lenses. The Tamron 28 to 75mm is the best choice if you are looking for the lightest and most affordable option. Sigma 24-70mm art is worth it if you are looking for the best image quality and solid build. Your needs, preferences and budget will determine the choice.
