The Tamron 70-300mm F/4.5-6.3 Di III RXD is not itself new, since it’s already available in the Sony FE mount, but what is new is that Tamron is broadening its scope to bring in Nikon Z users.

When we reviewed the Tamron 70-300mm F/4.5-6.3 Di III RXD we were impressed by the compact, lightweight build which Tamron says is the world's smallest and lightest 70-300mm. Will the Z mount version of the lens be exactly the same?
