TAMRON’s 2nd-generation high speed zoom lens optimized for the latest full-frame mirrorless cameras
Outstanding resolution and superb overall performance in a light weight and compact zoom lens. The 28-75mm F/2.8 Di III VXD G2 (Model A063) is a fast-aperture standard zoom lens for Sony E-mount full-frame mirrorless cameras. The lens is the successor to the popular 28-75mm F/2.8 Di III RXD (Model A036), the lens that flipped conventional thinking about standard zoom lenses upside down.
High definition and spectacular image quality are the key areas of advancements. The Model A063 features a redesigned optical system but maintains a size similar to its predecessor. The lens provides exceptionally good optical performance, edge-to-edge across the frame, throughout the entire zoom range, along with the soft, beautiful bokeh effects that are distinctive to fast-aperture lenses.
The AF drive is equipped with TAMRON’s linear motor focus mechanism VXD (Voice-coil eXtreme-torque Drive) to enable high speed, high precision auto-focusing. Closeup shooting capabilities have also been improved and achieve an MOD (Minimum Object Distance) of 0.18m (7.1 in) at the 28mm wide end, and a maximum magnification ratio of 1:2.7.
The exciting 28-75mm F2.8 G2 is equipped with new, groundbreaking features that enable users to easily perform customization and firmware updates themselves. For example, users can reverse the direction of the focus ring during manual focus.
Additionally, TAMRON has adopted a new design with improved ergonomics and revised the coating of the lens exterior to improve scratch resistance. The filter size is 67mm, which is standard among TAMRON’s fast-aperture zoom lens series and enables the sharing of lens caps, filters, and other accessories.
In addition to features such as Moisture-Resistant Construction and a protective Fluorine Coating, the lens supports various features built into Sony E-mount cameras, including Fast Hybrid AF, Eye AF and in-camera lens corrections (shading, chromatic aberration, distortion).
Taken altogether, the enhanced features create a potent, everyday zoom lens befitting the very latest generation of mirrorless cameras, a lens that draws you a giant step closer to maximizing your enjoyment of photography.
