One of the best parts about traveling is photographing new people and places, but determining what lens to use for travel photography may be difficult when space in your bag is limited.

Travel photography can be exciting and challenging! Shooting in a new location with new conditions can push you to become a better photographer. However, with space in baggage at a premium it can be difficult to decide which lenses you should bring. You might need to pack light and bring as little equipment as possible or consider flying or tour weight restrictions. The lenses you choose must be versatile and capable of photographing everything from mountain panoramas to portraits of friends and family to food.

With enough zoom for portraits and wide enough for landscape photography, the 28-75mm G2 for Sony full-frame E-mount mirrorless cameras is a versatile choice. Tamron’s offering is lightweight, maneuverable, and compact which makes it a perfect choice for travelers, influencers, and professionals alike! Plus, it’s compatible with the Tamron Lens Utility™ for unique customization of your lens to your shooting style.
