Comprising a flexible wide-angle range, the 17-28mm f/2.8 Di III RXD from Tamron is a versatile zoom for full-frame Sony E-mount mirrorless cameras. Covering ultra-wide to wide focal lengths, this lens is particularly suitable for landscape, astrophotography, and architectural shooting. Its bright f/2.8 constant maximum aperture complements this range and affords increased control over depth of field along with enhanced low-light performance. The optical design incorporates a both XLD and LD elements, which produce a highly corrected image with reduced chromatic aberrations and color fringing for improved clarity and color accuracy. Individual elements also feature Tamron's BBAR coating, which suppresses flare and ghosting for greater contrast when working in backlit and harsh lighting conditions. Additionally, adding to the versatility, an RXD stepping motor enables quick, near-silent autofocus performance to suit stills and video, along with full-time manual focus override and a minimum focusing distance of 7.5". Suiting this lens's use in inclement weather conditions, it also features a moisture-resistant construction along with a fluorine-coated front element to protect against fingerprints and smudging.

Tamron 17-28mm f/2.8 Di III RXD Reviews
i needed a wide len so checking the best len for my money, the T. 17-28MM hit the spot .I didn't send it back so for now its my wide len . around 20mm is the sweet spot for me .
Love this lens!
I'm familiar with the Tamron Trinity from YouTube reviews and Facebook groups. I finally got to try this for myself and love the images it produces. Nice sharp and light. It's weather sealed and has some crazy sharpness. The 28mm vs 35mm on the longer end doesn't seem as weird as I thought it would be. Highly recommend.
Good lent for my Sony a7rlll
I use this primarily for shooting 4K video on my A7IV and it works great.
Great lens. Lightweight and sharp. The only thing is I wish it punched in a bit more to 35mm.
Great lens and excellent companion for the Tamron 35 to 150
I bought this lens because I wanted a companion for the new Tamron 35-150 mm f2 to f2.8 With just two lenses I can cover from 17mm to 150mm full frame (with a very minuscule gap) and with a 2.8 aperture all across the range. For my style of shooting is exactly what I wanted (mostly video productions, Doc, very fast-paced), so I wanted just a lens for when I needed to go Wider than 35. Also works great with the Sony A7siii autofocus and it's also great for gimbal/glidecam/steadycam operation. The only caveat is that the motor is not linear (like newer Tamron lenses) so maybe Tamron will come up with a newer version like they did with the 28-75 and the 70-180. So at the time you read this, I would be aware of the possibility of a new 17-28 VXD linear motor.
Not a true Full Frame lens
You have to dig into the extra details to discover that this is an APS-C lens. I was disappointed to find that my affordable wide angle lens wasn't a true full frame. Be careful when purchasing.
Perfect lower cost wide angle zoom for video!
I needed a native E-mount lens for my new Sony, that would be compatible with Sony autofocus in video. It was the perfect focal length range for the event BTS video I bought it for. Used once, and it was just what I needed. The zoom ring is pretty tight, so you can't get a smooth zoom by hand while filming, but on the other hand, you at least know it won't slip around on you when you tip your camera. It's also the most compact zoom lens I own (coming from Canon), so it was the perfect lens for my gimbal rig, that still gave me some options!
