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.

Significant improvement

Upgraded from prior version. I think it is noticeable sharper. Also has other features such as plug-in firmware update, lens focus button, etc.

Love it.

I am a hobbyist who primarily wants to photograph kids/family. Excellent, fast lens for most situations (nearly always f2.8).

I really wanted to like this lens and you know what? I do!. Great IQ, light weight, affordable. Highly recommend for you A7III shooters

I had a few wide to tele lenses before this one, but f/2.8 has become a must for me and since I travel extensively, I didn't look favorably on the much heavier and/or significantly more expensive alternatives out there, the reviews were very positive, and I decided to go for it. I am not disappointed. This is an excellent lens. IQ is great and it is definitely more affordable the Sony's alternatives. I am very happy with this purchase.

Fantastic Lens

I have owned the Sigma version of this lens (24-70mm) and the Tamron G2 is on par with, or even exceeds the Sigma in terms of clarity, focusing and weight. It is significantly lighter without feeling cheaply made, and focusing is fast and accurate. I feel confident in this lens to perform how I need it to and I will be purchasing more Tamron lenses in the future!

It's okay.

But it lacks soul. I really love my Zeiss primes, and my Sony 70-200. This Tamron just seems to be missing something I can't quite identify.

Nice and Crisp

Focus is faster than the original version of this lens, which I also now . Much better build quality, much stiffer so the focus doesn't bump out so easy. Not sure about the open port but time will tell. Very quick and speedy delivery.

Excellent
