The Tamron 17-28mm F/2.8 Di III RXD is a fast, compact wide-angle zoom lens designed specifically for Sony Mirrorless full-frame cameras. Constructed so it weighs just 420g and measures less than 100mm in length, the lens barrel doesn't extend when focusing or zooming, ensuring perfect balance. High-speed and high-accuracy focus is achieved thanks to Tamron's Rapid eXtra-silent stepping Drive (RXD) focusing system which is also silent, making it ideal for both photography and videography.

Superb optical performance
The 17-23mm F/2.8 features a construction of 13 glass elements in 11 groups, including 3 aspherical, 2 low-dispersion elements, and an extra low-dispersion element. These elements marry together to suppress artefacts and aberrations, while Tamron's Broad-Band-Anti Reflection coating effectively reduces flares and ghosting.

Fantastic versatility
The 17-28mm focal length offers fantastic versatility as an all-day travel lens, while the lens can focus as close as 19mm on the widest focal length, and 26mm when zoomed in, with a magnification ratio of 1:5.2 – 1:6, allowing users to get creative with perspective in ways very few other lenses can achieve.

Outstanding AF performance
Tamron's Rapid eXtra-silent stepping Drive (RXD) focusing system offers high-speed and high-accuracy performance and is ideal for both video and photo work.

Built to last
The lens features moisture-resistant construction, offering protection when shooting outdoors in adverse weather conditions. The front glass element is coated with a protection fluorine compound that repels water and oils, making it easier to wipe clean and protecting it against dirt and fingerprints.

The Tamron 17-28mm Di III RXD features a completely new Tamron-designed fast and accurate AF system. The RXD (Rapid eXtra-silent stepping drive) delivers the perfect balance between speed and quiet operation, making it perfect for both video and photo shooting. The case has a moisture-resistant construction essential for shooting in poor conditions, plus a hydrophobic fluorine lens coating that is highly resistant to moisture, fingerprints and dirt. The Tamron 17-28mm Di III RXD is fully compatible with the various Sony camera-specific features, such as in-camera lens correction and Direct Manual Focus (DMF), Fast Hybrid AF and Eye AF. As a result, this new professional ultra-wide-angle zoom takes full advantage of the advanced camera functions, which ensure an optimal user experience.

This ultra-wide-angle zoom lens delivers superior optical performance with excellent image quality). This is only possible with high brightness, rounded aperture blades and thanks to a new optical system specifically designed for Sony mirrorless cameras. The Tamron 17-28mm stimulates expressive and creative photography in a variety of scenarios, thanks in part to a unique minimum focusing distance of only 19cm in wide-angle and 26 cm in tele-mode.

The overall length does not change when zooming in or when focusing, therefore creating a stable, well-balanced operation and excellent portability. In addition, the Tamron 17-28mm has a filter size of only 67mm, which is very small for an ultra-wide-angle zoom lens. The usability and versatility inherent in compact Full-Frame mirrorless cameras are enhanced by the compact length and light weight of the Tamron 17-28mm, which is only 99mm and 420 gram.

Understanding: Aperture

Aperture is the opening in a camera lens that controls how much light enters the camera. It's measured in f-stops like f/2.8 or f/8. Lower f-stop numbers mean wider openings, letting in more light and creating a shallow depth of field (blurry background). Higher f-stop numbers mean smaller openings, letting in less light and creating a larger depth of field (more of the scene in focus). Aperture also affects the quality of out-of-focus areas in the image (bokeh).

Understanding: Lens Types

Different lenses have different purposes to achieve different styles of images, some popular ones include:
Prime Lens: Fixed focal length, sharp images, great for portraits and dark settings.
Zoom Lens: Variable focal length, versatile for different shots and everyday use..
Wide-Angle Lens: Captures wide scenes like landscapes.
Telephoto Lens: Magnifies distant subjects, ideal for sports & wildlife.
Macro Lens: Perfect for close-up photography of small subjects.
Fisheye Lens: Ultra-wide perspective, creates unique images.

Understanding: Lens Mounts

Different camera brands use different lens mounts, which are like connectors that attach lenses to camera bodies. Each mount is specific to a particular brand and camera series. For example, Canon uses the EF and RF mounts, Nikon uses the F mount, Sony uses the E mount for its mirrorless cameras. These mounts dictate which lenses are compatible with which cameras. Some brands offer adapters to use lenses from other systems, but it's essential to ensure compatibility for proper functionality and autofocus performance.

Understanding: Manual and Autofocus

Manual focus and autofocus are two ways to adjust the sharpness of a camera lens. With manual focus, you turn a ring on the lens to bring the subject into focus yourself, giving you full control over what appears sharp in the image. Autofocus, on the other hand, relies on the camera's built-in technology to automatically adjust the focus for you, usually by detecting contrast or phase differences in the scene. Autofocus can be convenient, especially for fast-moving subjects or when you need to capture a quick shot, whereas manual focus allows for precise adjustments and creative control over the final image.
