Buy Tamron 17-28mm f/2.8 Di III RXD Lens for Sony E-Mount
Tamron's 17-28mm f/2.8 Di III RXD is a versatile zoom lens for full-frame Sony E-mount mirrorless cameras. Featuring ultra-wide to wide focal lengths, this lens is ideal for landscape, astrophotography, and architectural photography. With an aperture constant of f/2.8, the brightest lens in the range allows for maximum depth of field control and enhanced low-light performance. Both XLD and LD elements contribute to the improved clarity and colour accuracy of the image, reducing chromatic aberrations and colour fringing. A coating called BBAR impairs flare and ghosting, which is important when shooting in backlit or harsh lighting conditions. In addition, an RXD stepping motor offers fast, near-silent autofocus performance that works well for stills or video, and a full-time manual focus override is available.
With this versatile wide-angle zoom lens, you can use it on full-frame Sony mirrorless cameras as well as APS-C cameras.
An aperture of f/2.8 ensures consistent brightness at all zoom levels and allows you to control the depth of field more precisely.
As a result of XLD (Extra-Low Dispersion) and LD (Low Dispersion) elements, colour fringing and chromatic aberrations are greatly reduced throughout the zoom range, improving colour accuracy and clarity.
Featuring a fast, quiet, and smooth stepping motor, the RXD (Rapid eXtra-silent stepping Drive) autofocus motor provides impressive performance for both stills and videos. A minimum focusing distance of 7.5" is possible, and a magnification of 1:5.2 is available for working with close-up subjects. Full-time manual focus override is possible, and Direct Manual Focus is compatible with the camera.
This lens' moisture-resistant construction makes it suitable for use in inclement weather conditions, and its fluorine coating resists dust, dirt, and smearing.
With its nine blades, this camera provides an appealing bokeh effect.
