Featuring an updated optical design and refined focusing system, the Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8 Di III VXD G2 is a Sony E-mount zoom offering a versatile wide-to-portrait-length range and bright f/2.8 maximum aperture. Revamped optics yield higher resolution and improved sharpness over the previous generation and the focusing system has been replaced with a VXD (Voice-coil eXtreme-torque Drive) mechanism that achieves faster, more precise performance to suit both stills and video applications. As the second generation of this popular lens, this updated version also sees refinements to the exterior design of the lens, a closer minimum focusing distance of 7.1", and a new connector port for streamlining the process of working with Tamron Lens Utility software to adjust lens settings.

  • Versatile standard zoom designed for full-frame Sony E-mount mirrorless cameras but can also be used with APS-C models where it will provide a 42-112.5mm equivalent focal length range.
  • Bright constant f/2.8 maximum aperture affords consistent illumination throughout the zoom range and also affords greater control over depth of field for working with selective focus techniques.
  • Improved optical design increases resolution and enhances imaging performance.
  • VXD (Voice-coil eXtreme-torque Drive) linear motor focus mechanism provides fast, quiet, and precise autofocus performance throughout the zoom range.
  • Minimum focusing distance of just 7.1" and a 1:2.7 maximum magnification for working with close-up subjects.
  • Updated ergonomic design for improved operability.
  • Connector port works in conjunction with Tamron Lens Utility software for customizing lens functions and updating firmware through the lens rather than through the camera.

This lens is very sharp on the Sony A6600. Absolutely love the feeling in hand and how light weight it is. The range it provides is fair, just got to step back for a wider shot.

It is a great lens. It is a great match with Sony A7IV cameras. Good focal length for everyday photography and video

(Using lens with A7IV in mostly indoor environments with drastically different lighting conditions, both 4k video and photos) I got this lens based off of essentially every youtube review saying that the original was one of the best lenses for the Sony cameras hands down. I was using a bunch of Sigma prime lenses and when this new one was announced and it was said that it is better than the original in every way I basically jumped on board almost immediately. I got it and I do very much think it's an amazing lens, but I do think my expectations were a bit too high in areas. The autofocus is great when it works and is better than most of my Sigma lenses (which are the older style that had mediocre video AF because they were DSLR conversions), but I was definitely expecting a bit better considering that these Sigma lenses had some issues with tracking. It might be because I wasn't sure what to expect because this is a zoom lens and the others were all Prime lenses, but I was definitely a little bit disappointed. I almost returned it due to this, but after using it for a while, and understanding how to make the autofocus work for me, I do think it's quite an amazing lens. Sharp almost always with very little issues in 4k video or photos. I think that the bokeh looks pleasing and it's been able to keep up in the focus department once I changed some settings in camera. I haven't been annoyed at all with the reversed focus and zoom rings and connecting to the app on my computer has been super easy and I've been toying around with settings on it, changing what the button controls and different settings for the ring. I'm not putting it at 4 stars due to my own misplaced expectations, I'm putting it at 4 due to the fact that it's definitely got some things I think could be better, mostly with autofocus in less than ideal lighting, but for the price, you absolutely cannot get better. This lens ties all of my Sigma prime lenses in sharpness and keeps up or beats them with the autofocus in well light situations.

Great zoom and small size
