  • PositiveFor an entry-level lens in the ultra-telephoto zoom range, the new Tamron offers very good image quality and pleasant ease of use
  • NegativeIn the 500 millimetre setting, the lens becomes very top-heavy due to the wide extension of the tube
  • NegativeThe tripod clamp is then a good help

Tamron supplies the segment of entry-level lenses for the Nikon Z system with appealing solutions. This is no different in the case of the 150- 500mm F/5-6.7 Di III VC VXD, as it gives the photographer great creative freedom in the extreme telephoto range and good image results for little money.

... The drop in resolution is again very low, that of the contrast moderate. Stopping down almost cancels it out - but that is already f/11 in our measurement. The decisive 500mm unfortunately performs worse. At open aperture 6.7, the values in the centre of the image almost correspond to those at 275mm, but the drop in contrast and resolution at the edges is now more pronounced...
