Tamron Di III RXD 17-28mm f/2.8 Lens for Sony E-Mount

The Tamron A046 17-28mm f/2.8 Di III RXD is a high-speed ultra wide-angle zoom lens made for Sony E mirrorless cameras. Its incredibly small diameter is evidenced in it 67mm filter size. The lens is an amazingly lightweight and compact lens with fast constant aperture and high resolution and contrast. It is designed for expressive photography that brings out your inner creative.

Optical Construction

The Tamron 17-28mm’s optical design utilizes 13 lenses in 11 groups, including three aspherical lens elements, two LD (Low Dispersion) lens elements and one XLD (eXtra Low Dispersion) lens element. These elements effectively reduce chromatic aberrations. Plus, the lenses come with a BBAR (Broad-Brand Anti-Reflection) Coating that effectively reduces ghosting and flare.

High Image-Quality and Optical Performance

The A046 17-28mm lens provides high edge-to-edge resolution and contrast and fast aperture throughout the entire zoom range. The ultra-wide angle focal length and constant f/2.8 aperture, as well as a close focus range of 7.5" (0.19m) at the wide-angle end, combine for superb optics and quality. You can flex your creative expression in a variety of situations.

For Full-Frame Mirrorless Camera

Portable and easy to carry, the A046 zoom lens enables outstanding balance when attached to a full-frame mirrorless camera. This also makes it applicable to a range of shooting scenarios. With a modestly sized 67mm filter thread, this extremely compact and lightweight lens features an extraordinarily small diameter for its class.

Fast, Precise and Quiet Operation

Powered by the RXD (Rapid eXtra-silent stepping Drive) stepping motor unit, the wide-angle zoom lens is optimized for autofocus control. If you want high speed and precision as well as near-silent operation for video and stills, this lens will get your job done.

Moisture-Resistant Construction

The lens comes sealed near the mount area and other critical locations that protect its optical elements from moisture and rain drops. This moisture-resistant construction makes the lens suitable for shooting outdoors under adverse weather conditions.
