  • Constant f/2.8 maximum aperture provides bright illumination throughout the zoom range and also enables precise control over depth of field for working with selective focus techniques.

  • Compatible with many camera-specific features and functions including Fast Hybrid AF and Eye AF.
  • Minimum focusing distance of just 6.7" and a 1:3.8 maximum magnification for working with close-up subjects.

The focus ring on the Tamron 20-40mm f/2.8 Di III VXD Lens for Sony E can be customized to control the aperture with the Tamron Lens Utility software available on the Tamron website. The lens has a USB-C port.
