TAMRON 20-40mm f/2.8 Di III VXD Zoom Lens
TAMRON announces the launch of the 20-40mm f/2.8 Di III VXD (Model A062), a fast-aperture standard zoom lens for Sony E-mount full-frame mirrorless cameras.
The 20-40mm f/2.8, TAMRON’s new fast-aperture standard zoom lens is designed for Sony E-mount full-frame mirrorless cameras. Starting from 20mm at the ultra-wide-angle end and covering up to 40mm in the standard focal range. The 20-40mm f/2.8 delivers beautiful images across the entire zoom range and is great for still photography and for creating vlogs and other video content. The lens incorporates TAMRON’s VXD (Voice-coil eXtreme-torque Drive), an AF drive system using the linear motor focus mechanism. It has a MOD (Minimum Object Distance) of just 0.17m (6.7 in) and a maximum magnification ratio of 1:3.8 at the wide end, the lens provides close-range shooting capability, offering the added feature of wide macro photography.
The lens has an f/2.8 aperture, compact size, and 20-40mm zoom range. It is compact and lightweight in design. It weighs about 86.5mm (3.4 in) and 365g (12.9 oz). At the longest zoom end, the lens offers a standard focal range of 40mm, ideal for everyday shooting of snaps, portraits, and food photos. The ultra-wide 20mm focal length lets users enjoy a broad range of photography like natural landscapes that make use of the unique ultra-wide-angle perspective.
The 20-40mm F2.8 has an optical construction of 12 elements in 11 groups. With four LD (Low Dispersion), two GM (Glass Molded Aspherical), and one Hybrid Aspherical lens elements. Another feature is the soft defocus blur effects and circular bokeh.
The autofocus drive system uses the VXD linear motor focus mechanism. The AF enables the lens to respond to the creative intentions of the photographer by making focusing quick and definite, even with fast-aperture lenses, from the MOD to infinity. The lens provides focus tracking of moving objects, also the lens is extremely quiet, so it’s perfectly suited for both still and video shooting in conditions that demand silent operation. It can be connected with the TAMRON Lens Utility software and has Moisture-Resistant Construction and Fluorine Coating among other features.Tags: Tamron, Tamron Lenses
