About the Lenses
The 70-180mm F/2.8 Di III VXD features a compact and lightweight design with a 67mm filter diameter, the same as Tamron’s highly esteemed 17-28mm F/2.8 (Model A046) and the 28-75mm F/2.8 (Model A036). The optical construction includes several special lens elements that contribute to the lens’s overall superb imaging performance and the very short 33.5” MOD (Minimum Object Distance) expands overall versatility. The lens utilizes Tamron’s newly developed VXD (Voice-coil eXtreme-torque Drive) linear motor focus mechanism that produces an autofocus drive that’s quieter and quicker than ever before.
The 28-200mm F2.8-5.6 Di III RXD is the first all-in-one-zoom in the worldto achieve a maximum aperture of F2.8 at the 28mm wide-angle end. To assure superb optical performance, it features a precise arrangement of special lens elements that accommodate the increasingly high resolutions of today’s digital cameras. Enabling high quality image rendering throughout the zoom range, the lens responds to users’ photographic expressions in powerful style. With its 4.6” length, 20.3 oz. weight, and filter diameter of a mere 67mm, the 28-200mm F2.8-5.6 offers excellent portability. When combined with a compact, lightweight full-frame mirrorless camera, it allows photographers to capture virtually every scene they encounter in daily use, travel, sports and nature.
The versatile 35mm F/2.8 Di III OSD M1:2 is ideal for everyday/every subject use and strikes a balance between gorgeous image rendering and superior operation. The lens features the same filter size (Ø67mm) for Tamron’s three prime and four zoom lenses and achieves the company’s aim of compactness. The 35mm lenses is capable of focusing very close, to an unprecedented in this category magnification ratio of 1:2. Other features include Moisture-Resistant Construction (for outdoor shooting) and a Fluorine Coating on the front element for easy maintenance and fingerprint removal. The 35mm is one of three primes launched by Tamron for the Sony full-frame mirrorless system. The 24mm F/2.8 M1:2 (model F051) and 20mm F/2.8 M1:2 (model F050) complete the prime line-up.
