The world's first all-in-one zoom lens with a bright maximum aperture of F2.8 at 28mm, the Tamron 28-200mm F/2.8-5.6 Di III RXD (Model A071) delivers high-level performance across the entire zoom range. The lens has a length of 4.6 inches and a weight of just 20.3 ounces, yet it covers this wide range.
The lens also provides high-level performance for close-up photography with its 7.5 in MOD at the wide end and 31.5 in MOD at the tele end. The cutting-edge 28-200mm F2.8-5.6 is unique among all-in-one zooms because it vividly captures virtually all possible scenes, including landscapes, portraits, snapshots, and close-ups.
The 28-200mm F2.8-5.6 is the first full-frame mirror less all-in-one zoom lens with a maximum aperture of F2.8. It performs exceptionally well across the entire zoom range, with aperture settings of F3.5 at 50mm, F4.5 at 100mm, and F5.6 at 200mm. The 28-200mm F2.8-5.6 delivers highly detailed images in a wide range of shooting conditions, including landscape, portrait, and candid shots. The application of BBAR (Broad-Band Anti-Reflection) Coating offers high anti-reflective benefits and reduces ghosting and flare that are otherwise likely to occur when shooting backlight scenes. The extensive use of special LD and XLD lens elements that have properties that are close to those of fluorite enables it to completely minimize chromatic and other aberrations. Additionally, the camera uses a coating that has high anti-reflective benefits.
Additionally, the lens achieves stunning images that are significantly superior to those produced by all-in-one zoom lenses in the past thanks to its excellent optical performance that matches the high-resolution image sensors on the most recent cameras.
Compact and lightweight design
All-in-one zoom lenses, from wide-angle to telephoto, offer a wider range of applications, from everyday snapshots to travel and more. As a result, Tamron designed the 28-200mm F2.8-5.6 with a high level of portability in mind. The result is a lightweight, compact design that measures just 575g and is just 117mm (4.6 in) long. Even during extended travel, the compact size provides comfort and convenience without the weight of a bulky camera bag. Other mirror less lenses from Tamron share the same 67mm filter size. This means that lens caps and filters like PL (Polarizer) can be used on all models in the series, making it easier to change lenses and more convenient.
Performance in close-up photography for an all-in-one zoom lens
For an all-in-one zoom lens, the 28-200mm F2.8-5.6 delivers exceptional close-up performance. The MOD is 0.19m (7.5 in) at 28mm wide-angle, and the maximum magnification ratio is 1:3.1. At 200mm telephoto, the MOD is 0.8m (31.5 in), and the maximum magnification ratio is 1:3.8. With a large F-number, you can use the blurred background bokeh to get unique close-up shots that were previously impossible with all-in-one zoom lenses. In addition, you can take stunning close-up photos.
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.
System for high-performance auto focus
An RXD motor unit is included in the 28-200mm F2.8-5.6's AF drive 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 made possible by a sensor that precisely determines the position of the lens. This is ideal for video recording or shooting subjects that are constantly moving.
Additionally, the 28-200mm F2.8-5.6's quiet and smooth focusing system lets you shoot in a quiet environment without worrying about drive noise.
The wide field of view.
From 28mm at the wide-angle end to 200mm at the telephoto end, the 28-200mm F2.8-5.6 for Sony E-mount offers a wide range of focal lengths in a single lens. This adaptable range makes it possible to capture a variety of photographic expressions, from wide-angle shots of vast landscapes to telephoto shots of close-up and compressed compositions. The lens is lightweight and compact, making it simple to carry at anytime and anywhere. The 28-200mm F2.8-5.6 is a very easy-to-use lens that can be used for almost any type of photography, including tabletop and professional-looking portraits, wide-angle landscapes, street shots, and more.
A circular aperture to create a bokeh with smooth edges.
Even when stopped down two stops from the wide-open aperture, a 7-blade diaphragm is designed to provide a smooth, circular aperture opening. This results in background light spots having a bokeh with smooth edges.
Coating: BBAR Coating for advanced anti-reflection
By suppressing reflections on the surfaces of lens elements with BBAR (Broad-Band Anti-Reflection) coating, unwanted ghosting and flare are minimized, and sharp, crisp, high-contrast images are produced.
