Expanded Tamron 28-75mm f2.8 Di III VXD G2 for Sony E-Mount Key Features:

Redesigned and Updated

As the successor to the RXD model, this updated lens is equipped with an array of features that result in an even higher level of image quality, overall lens performance and usability. The 28-75mm f2.8 Di III VXD G2 is equipped with an intricate and redesigned optical pathway comprised of 17 premium glass elements, arranged into 15 groups. Within these groups, there’s the use of specialised lenses such as Low Dispersion and Glass Molded Aspherical lenses that significantly minimise aberrations and offer edge to edge sharpness across the entire focal range.

Additionally, the close focus (or Minimum Object Distance) has been improved, allowing you to focus as close as 18cm. This translates to a working distance of 4.4cm at the MOD. Furthermore, this means that the maximum magnification ratio is 1:2:7, enabling access to the world of close-up, macro photography.

AF Performance

This lens improves on its predecessor’s AF system with the addition of Tamron’s VXD linear motor focus mechanism. This system is exceptionally responsive and offers a potent combination of impressive speed and precision. In fact, this mechanism is approximately twice as fast as the 1st gen model meaning you can have confidence that the lens will be able to accurately see the frame you see in front of you from the moment you hit that shutter button. Furthermore, adding to the flexibility of this lens, is that the VXD motor is impressively quiet which not only allows for more discretion in sound-sensitive situations but is also ideal for capturing video.


Another area of improvement is the exterior and ergonomics of this 2nd-gen lens. It features an improved grip texture on both the focus and zoom rings that of course, allow for smoother and more precise movements. This results in more accurate images as well as providing a more premium feel to the overall build. It also features a shinier, more glossy finish that further adds to that high-quality feel. Finally, this lens has been built with reliable moisture resistance that whilst isn’t weather-proof, it will allow you to use this lens in a range of different scenarios.
