Expanded Tamron 11-20mm F/2.8 Di III-A RXD Lens Key Features:

Optical Performance

Meeting the demands of professional users, this lens has been equipped with a highly intricate and advanced optical structure. The lens is made up of 12 glass elements that have been arranged into 10 groups. Within these 12 lenses, there are GM (Glass Moulded Aspherical) lens elements that have been precisely located along the barrel to ensure high resolution and edge-to-edge sharpness throughout the focal range. As well as this, Tamron has included one XLD (eXtra Low Dispersion) and two LD (Low Dispersion) lens elements that when combined, significantly reduces the appearance of optical aberrations for the highest image quality possible. Finally, to suppress ghosting and flare, Tamron has used a BBAR-G2 (Broad-Band Anti-Reflection Generation 2) Coating that is effective even in backlit conditions.

Versatile and Flexible

There needs to be harmony between a lens and camera to produce the highest image quality possible and versatility to the user. To match up to the Sony E-Mount APS-C cameras that this lens is designed for, Tamron has afforded a constant f2.8 maximum aperture throughout the focal range. This aperture not only provides users with excellent low-light shooting capabilities but also enhanced and expressive control over depth-of-field. Furthermore, the MOD (Minimum Object Distance) is just 15cm at the 11cm focal length and 24cm at the narrower 20mm end. Having this expanded range and a maximum magnification ratio of 1:4 means that this wide-angle lens, which is ideal for landscapes and astrophotography, can as easily be used for creative close-up macro perspective images.

Focus On This

This lens is equipped with a Rapid eXtra-silent stepping Drive (RXD) that has been designed with an actuator that is used to precisely control the rotational angle of the motor. This allows the driver to focus the lens without passing through a reduction gear and combined with the sensor that detects the position of the lens, you're able to achieve highly accurate and impressively fast autofocus. This is ideal for photography and videography where you have constantly moving subjects and further to this, the lens is also compatible with Sony's world-renowned fast Hybrid AF and Eye AF, too.

Surprisingly Small

It's true that often lenses of this calibre with advanced wide-angle optics and a constant f2.8 are bulky and heavy. But this lens breaks that trend. In fact, this lens is only 86mm long and weighs just 335g, which is remarkable considering the other similar lenses on the market. The benefit of this is that this lens is designed for use with Sony E-Mount APS-C mirrorless camera models that are compact in nature and therefore, you'll maintain the sleek and lightweight profile - Perfect for travel photographers who work with a weight limit.
