Tamron 17-28mm f/2.8 Di III RXD Lens for Sony E Cameras - Black
The Sony full-frame mirror-less Tamron 17-28mm f/2.8 DI III RXD (model A046) lens offers all the advantages of a fast f/2.8 aperture in an ultra-wide-angle zoom lens. With a total length of just 99 millimeters and a weight of just 420 grams, it has an astonishingly lightweight and compact design. It is great for traveling because of its small size, which provides excellent balance and makes it simple to carry, especially since the barrel does not extend when focusing or zooming.
The 17-28mm RXD offers edge-to-edge high contrast and a large f/2.8 aperture throughout the entire zoom range. In a variety of situations, the ultra-wide-angle focal length, large constant f/2.8 aperture, and 19cm minimum object distance (MOD) at the wide-angle end encourage richly expressive and creative photography. The RXD (rapid extra-silent stepping drive) AF motor unit powers the 17-28mm Zoom's AF drive system. This allows it to operate at high speed, high precision, and exceptionally quiet levels, making it suitable for virtually noise-free video and still photography.
A hydrophobic fluorine coating and a moisture-resistant construction also repel dirt and fingerprints. Additionally, the 17-28mm RXD is fully compatible with several camera-specific features, such as eye AF and fast hybrid AF. The 17-28mm zoom is made of optical construction and design with high performance and exceptional portability. The ideal size for your mirror-less camera body, making it suitable for both enthusiast and professional use.
System for high-performance auto focus
An RXD motor unit is included in the AF drive of the 17-28mm zoom to help you stay focused on the action. RXD directs the motor's rotational angle precisely through an actuator, enabling it to drive the focusing lens directly without passing through a reduction gear. High-speed and precise AF is possible with a sensor that accurately detects the lens's position, which is ideal for video recording or shooting subjects that are constantly moving. ideal for street photography and group shots of friends.
Additionally, the new 17-28mm zoom features a quiet and smooth focusing system, so you won't have to worry about picking up ambient drive sounds while shooting video.
Small enough to take with you wherever you go.
Tamron makes huge opening ultra-wide-point photography seriously invigorating, and for this focal point we zeroed in on ease of use. The range of the 17-28mm zoom was carefully chosen; that allowed for a size that was surprising small: just 99 millimeters (3.9 inches) long and weighed 420 grams (14.8 ounces).
During zooming, the lens's overall length does not change, allowing for stable shooting and consistent handling. ref. animation for zooming) In addition, the ultra wide-angle zoom lens's 67mm filter size is small for a large aperture. In addition, the high-speed standard zoom lens in the series, the 28-75mm F/2.8 Di III RXD (Model A036), has the same filter diameter. This means that both models can use the same lens caps, accessories, and filters like the PL (Polarizer).
Creativity is facilitated by superior close-up shooting performance.
The wide 17mm end of the 17-28mm zoom has a MOD of 0.19m (7.5 in), giving it a maximum magnification ratio of 1:5.2. The maximum magnification ratio is 1:6 at the tele end, and the MOD is 0.26 meters (10.2 inches). Essentially, it is simple to get close enough to fire a powerful shot.
By opening the aperture and getting close to the subject, you can produce soft expressions with a shallow depth of field characteristic of large aperture lenses and emphasize the perspective that is unique to ultra-wide-angle lenses. Flexible, utilitarian, and hair-raising — all simultaneously.
Capture each and every scene and vista exquisitely.
Despite its small size, the 17-28mm zoom produces stunning images without sacrificing quality. To eliminate chromatic and other aberrations, two LD lens elements and one XLD lens element, which has fluorite-like properties, are precisely positioned. Additionally, when shooting in backlit conditions or against the glow of the sunset, the BBAR (Broad-Band Anti-Reflection) Coating reduces ghosting and flare on the lens surfaces.
It utilizes camera functions to provide excellent optical performance across the entire zoom range, matching the most recent high resolution image sensors from edge to edge. You can enter the breathtaking world of ultra-wide-angle photography with the 17-28mm zoom.
Fluorine Coating for safe cleaning and protection
A protective, oil- and water-resistant fluorine compound is applied to the front surface of the lens element. The surface of the lens is easier to clean with a cloth and less susceptible to the damaging effects of fingerprints, moisture, dirt, and dust.
Design that is easy to use is beautiful, long-lasting, and useful.
The 17-28mm zoom has a design that is not only beautiful but also useful. It has a metal lens mount that is precise and rigid, a Luminous Gold brand ring that is delicately worked, and an outer housing that fits the body of the lens. Whether a Tamron branded lens is used by itself or is attached to a camera body, the Luminous Gold brand ring reinforces its distinctive appearance.
