Tamron 11-20mm F2.8 Di III-A VC RXD Lens - Sony E Mount
World's first F2.8 ultra-wide-angle zoom for APS-C mirrorless cameras:
The 11-20mm F2.8 is an ultra-wide-angle zoom lens with an aperture of F2.8 across the entire zoom range. Meanwhile, it is compact, lightweight and very practical.
Compact and lightweight for superior usability:
The 11-20mm F2.8 is only 86.2mm in length and weighs just 335g. For a fast-aperture F2.8 ultra-wide-angle zoom lens, this is a remarkably compact and lightweight combination.
Outstanding optical performance:
The 11-20mm F2.8 construction includes 12 elements in 10 groups. Two precisely located GM (Glass Moulded Aspherical) lens elements assure high resolution across the entire image, from edge to edge.
Powerful Close Focus at 11mm:
The 11-20mm F2.8 boasts an MOD (Minimum Object Distance) of 15cm at the 11mm focal length setting and 24cm at the 20mm end. At the widest 11mm setting it has an astonishing maximum magnification ratio of 1:4.
A user-friendly unified 67mm filter size across the series:
The 11-20mm F2.8 is so light that the total weight of it and the 17-70mm F/2.8 Di III-A VC RXD (Model B070) standard zoom lens for Sony E-mount APS-C mirrorless cameras together is only approximately 860g. The combination of these two lenses covers an extreme range of focal lengths from 11mm to 70mm (equivalent to 16.5mm to 105mm on full-frame cameras) with a fast, wide-open aperture of F2.8 at every focal length.
Quiet and Rapid RXD focussing – ideal for Video too:
RXD (Rapid eXtra-silent stepping Drive) uses an actuator to precisely control the rotational angle of the motor, allowing it to directly drive the focusing lens without passing through a reduction gear. A sensor that precisely detects the position of the lens enables high-speed and accurate AF, which is ideal when shooting continually moving subjects or recording video.
Indulge in the exciting world of wide-angle macro with an MOD of 0.15m
The MOD is j u s t 0 . 1 5 m (5.9 in) at the widest end. This extreme close-range shooting performance allows you to get as close to a subject as you like. The maximum magnification ratio is 1:4 and it unlocks powerful wide-angle macro shooting utilizing the unique perspective that makes near objects look larger, and distant objects smaller. Additionally, using the F2.8 maximum aperture produces a shallower depth-of-field that creates soft bokeh in the background, allowing users to take distinctive images with unique expressions.
Cover every situation by combining two fast, sharp zooms for APS-C mirrorless cameras
By combining the 11-20mm F2.8 and its balance of excellent portability and high image quality with the 17-70mm F/2.8 Di III-A VC RXD (Model B070), the combination of these two lenses covers an extreme range of focal lengths from 11mm to 70mm (equivalent to 16.5mm to 105mm on full-frame cameras) with a fast, wide-open aperture of F2.8. Ideal for travelling, the combined weight of the two lenses is only 860g (30.3 oz). Drastically reducing the bulky size and weight can greatly lighten the load during shooting and is convenient during travel when you want to reduce the mass and weight of your camera bag. The unified filter size of 67mm allows the shared use of various filters and eliminates the hassle of finding the right lens cap when switching lenses. With these two outstanding lenses covering a broad angle of view, users can easily enjoy every photographic opportunity. Have it all!
