Spectacular optical performance that inspires creativity
TAMRON’s 2nd-generation fast-aperture zoom lens optimized for the latest full-frame mirrorless cameras
TThe 28-75mm F/2.8 Di III VXD G2 (Model A063) is a fast-aperture standard zoom lens for Sony E-mount full-frame mirrorless cameras. The lens is the successor to the popular 28-75mm F/2.8 Di III RXD (Model A036). High definition and spectacular image quality are the key areas of advancements. Model A063 features a redesigned optical system but maintains a size similar to its predecessor. To minimize optical aberrations to an extreme degree, LD (Low Dispersion) and GM (Glass Molded Aspherical) lens elements are used in an optimal arrangement. The lens provides exceptionally good optical performance, edge-to-edge across the frame, throughout the entire zoom range, along with the soft, beautiful bokeh effects that are distinctive to fast-aperture lenses. Taken altogether, the enhanced features create a potent, everyday zoom lens that draws you a giant step closer to maximizing your enjoyment of photography.
Achieves an MOD of 0.18m (7.1 in) and maximum magnification ratio of 1:2.7
Close focusing has also been improved. The MOD (Minimum Object Distance) of the 28-75mm F2.8 G2 is 0.18m (7.1 in) at the wide 28mm end, an improvement over the 1st-generation Model A036. The working distance becomes about 4.4cm (1.7 in) at the MOD. The maximum magnification ratio is 1:2.7. Get closer to any subject and enjoy the world of wide macro photography. In addition, at the telephoto end the MOD is 0.38m (15 in). The maximum magnification ratio when using the longer 75mm focal length is 1:4.1, enabling close-up shooting.
Capture all the action with high-speed, high-precision AF
The AF drive system is equipped with TAMRON’s VXD (Voice-coil eXtreme-torque Drive) linear motor focus mechanism. VXD is exceptionally responsive and operates at high speed with great precision. The AF speed is approximately twice as fast as the 1st generation Model A036. With reliable, speedy focusing, you are ready for those important moments. Moreover, the AF drive motor is very quiet, which is extra important when recording video.
Proprietary software tool TAMRON Lens Utility for lens function customization
This lens is compatible with the new TAMRON Lens Utility software originally and uniquely developed by TAMRON. TAMRON Lens Utility can be operated using a computer by connecting the lens from its Connector Port via the optional TAMRON Connection Cable. Users can customize the functions and update the firmware through the lens.
New 2nd-generation lens design improves both operation and ergonomics
The all-new 28-75mm F2.8 G2 incorporates a new design that becomes the hallmark of TAMRON lenses introduced in the future. Grip texture has been improved by redesigning the striped pattern on the rubber of focusing and zoom rings. Certain internal parts have also been enhanced. The surface of the lens exterior is shiny black, much glossier than previous models. TAMRON considered customer feedback and reviewed each part and component of the lens down to the finest details.
