A revolutionary first* for full-frame all-in-one travel-zooms, the Tamron 28-200mm F/2.8-5.6 Di III RXD for Sony FE manages to offer a practical zoom range and a large f/2.8 maximum aperture at its wider coverage. Maximize your creative potential and unleash the power of your full-frame Sony mirrorless camera. Be ready for that perfect moment, and ensure maximum versatility, even when you are only able to carry one lens.
Tamron has concentrated all its all-in-one zoom technologies into achieving an optical performance in the Tamron 28-200mm F/2.8-5.6 Di III RXD for Sony FE that sets a new standard among existing all-in-one zoom lenses. From casual snaps to serious photos, this single lens lets you enjoy a wide range of shooting situations with complete freedom of composition.
Tamron has taken an uncompromising approach to optical performance, making liberal use of special lens elements—including LD (Low Dispersion) and XLD (eXtra Low Dispersion) lens elements—to greatly suppress chromatic aberrations, making it possible to achieve high image quality from edge to edge. This innovative all-in-one zoom lens vividly captures virtually all possible scenes, from landscape photography to portrait photos and snapshots.
Additionally, with its short 117mm length, 575g weight and Tamron unified filter diameter of 67mm, the 28-200mm F/2.8-5.6 Di III RXD offers excellent portability. When combined with a compact, lightweight full-frame mirrorless camera, it allows photographers to capture virtually every scene they encounter in daily use, travel, sports and nature.
Experience the full-frame convenience of an all-in-one-zoom with a variable aperture starting at F/2.8 and utilise the latest innovation in an all-in-one Tamron full-frame zoom-lens legacy going all the way back to 1992!
Covering an expansive range of focal lengths from 28mm to 200mm, the Tamron 28-200mm F/2.8-5.6 Di III RXD for Sony FE empowers incredible diverse photographic expressions, from wide-angle shooting of sweeping landscapes to close-ups and compressive compositions at the telephoto range. This lens has it all and its compact design is super easy to carry at only 117mm length and a weight of just 575g.
A generous assortment of special lens elements spread over 18 elements in 14 groups that include GM (Glass Molded Aspherical), hybrid aspherical, XLD (eXtra Low Dispersion) and LD (Low Dispersion) lens elements are precisely arranged to effectively control chromatic and other aberrations, enabling high resolving power.
The clever BBAR (Broad-Band Anti-Reflection) Lens Coating provides powerful anti-reflection properties, effectively reducing ghosting and flare for clear and crisp images.
To mitigate distortion and to achieve uniform image quality from edge-to-edge at all zoom settings, in-camera correction features are utilized.
The Tamron 28-200mm F/2.8-5.6 Di III RXD for Sony FE delivers superior close up shooting performance for an all-in-one-zoom. At the lens' 28mm wide-angle the minimum focus distance is just 19cm, enabling you to get in close and intimate to achieve a maximum magnification ratio of 1:3.1.
Combined with the fast F2.8 aperture, this allows users to move in closer so that the subject is filling the frame while simultaneously showcasing a beautifully blurred background.
The imaging abilities of the 28-200mm F/2.8-5.6 Di III RXD are remarkable at the telephoto end too, with a focusing distance of 0.8m and a maximum magnification ratio of 1:3.8.
Capture impressive close-up images leveraging the bokeh for highly blurred backgrounds produced by the large F-number and enjoy exceptionally unique close-ups that were not possible with all-in-one zoom lenses until now.
Tamron’s new 28-200mm F2.8-5.6 is compatible with many of the advanced features that are specific to mirrorless cameras**. This includes:
Combine the 28-200mm F2.8-5.6 with other members of Tamron’s lineup of 67mm filter size lenses and cover an even wider range of scenes. The shared 67mm filter size enables efficiency in filter use; the same polarizer filters, or other filters, and lens caps can be shared between all models.
The AF drive incorporates a sensor that accurately detects the position of the lens while the RXD motor unit delivers optimized AF control. This achieves very fast and accurate autofocus operation, allowing users to maintain tack-sharp focus on continuously moving subjects or when filming videos.
Take advantage of the exceedingly quiet operation which virtually eliminates extraneous sounds during video recording.
Located at the lens mount area and other critical locations seals deter infiltration of moisture and/or rain drops and contributing to the Moisture-Resistant Construction. This feature provides an additional layer of protection when shooting outdoors under adverse weather conditions.
Additionally, the front surface of the lens element is coated with a protective fluorine compound that has excellent water- and oil-repellant qualities. As a result, the lens surface is much easier to wipe clean and less vulnerable to the effects of dirt, moisture or oily fingerprints, allowing for much easier maintenance.
Aiding mobility, and a must for travel photographers out sightseeing, a handy Zoom Lock switch positioned on the lens barrel prevents unwanted lens extension during transportation and storage.
