I’m slightly more than half way through my experiment with using my iPhone 13 Pro as my main camera. I committed to one year back in November of 2021. What have I learned? I think that in most cases – for most people – it’s all the camera you need.
They are both very good and while the Sony is more expensive, it’s not like it’s overpriced. You get good value there for your money. BUT…
The Tamron price is ridiculously low for all this technology and high image quality.
The Tamron is not a perfect lens but it’s probably better than most of the photographers who are using it. And I do not think the Sony is $600 to $850 better than the Tamron – not even close.
The three lenses I am talking about are the Tamron 17-28 | 28-75 | 70-180 i.e., the trinity zooms covering everything from 17mm to 180mm with a fast fixed aperture and all three together cost slightly more than just the one Sony 70-200 G Master.
