I've been shooting this lens all of July and I don't say this lightly, but the Tamron 28-200mm F/2.8-5.6 Di III RXD lens has my vote as the best super zoom lens ever (my previous vote went to the Nikon 1 10-100mm non-PD VR) and best lens for the 2020 pandemic! It's amazingly versatile with a fast wide f/2.8 aperture, fairly compact design and uniformly sharp images across it's focal length. It allows the shooter to get in close for details, but also maintain social distancing. Pair this lens with a compact wide and maybe a fast standard prime and you have everything covered! I could confidently shoot this lens in a parade (whatever that is), marathon (too much breathing) or even a protest! This lens is the pinnacle of Tamron's cumulative attempts at making cheap super zoom lenses throughout the years and it finally paid off! Highly recommended!
