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

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.

Versatile wide-angle zoom is designed for full-frame Sony E-mount mirrorless cameras, however can also be used with APS-C models where it will provide a 25.5-42mm equivalent focal length range.
Bright constant f/2.8 maximum aperture affords consistent brightness throughout the zoom range and offers improved control over depth of field.
XLD (eXtra Low Dispersion) and LD (Low Dispersion) elements greatly reduce color fringing and chromatic aberrations throughout the zoom range in order to realize improved clarity and color accuracy.
BBAR (Broad-Band Anti-Reflection) Coating has been applied to individual elements in order to suppress internal reflections, flare, and ghosting to achieve greater contrast and color fidelity when working in strong lighting conditions.
RXD (Rapid eXtra-silent stepping Drive) autofocus motor delivers impressively quiet, quick, and smooth focusing performance to suit both stills and video applications. This focusing system also offers a minimum focusing distance of just 7.5" and a 1:5.2 maximum magnification for working with close-up subjects. Full-time manual focus override is also possible and it is compatible with Sony's Direct Manual Focus function or fine-tuned manual control.
A moisture-resistant construction benefits this lens' use in inclement conditions, and a fluorine coating has also been applied to the front lens element to protect against dust, dirt, and smearing.
Rounded nine-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality.

Tamron 17-28mm f/2.8 Di III RXD Reviews

Lightweight and sharp!

Lightweight and sharp with very little distortion. Well made lens

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!

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.

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.

Is this similar to the Sony Wide Angle 16-35 F2.8 offered for $2,198?
Asked by: Timothy J
Yes, and arguably better overall. It is also lighter and nearly $1,300 cheaper than the GMaster. It is NOT a toy in any regards, except to a Sony Fanboy. There are many reviews already out, and this one really nails it, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CnfUoq6odgg So don't take my word or anyone elses until you watch several reviews. In the end, you will have to decide ultimately what the cost difference means to you.
