Tamron Co., Ltd. announces the development of a new high-speed standard zoom lens for 35mm full-frame mirrorless cameras, the 28-75mm F/2.8 Di III RXD. This signals Tamron’s plans to further expand and improve its lens lineup for 35mm full-frame mirrorless cameras, in addition to its lenses for DSLR and other mirrorless camera formats.

This new lens delivers superb optical performance, including both outstanding image quality and beautiful background blur effects (bokeh). Photographers will enjoy dynamic wide-angle expressions like never before thanks to a minimum object distance of 0.19 m at the wide-angle zoom setting. Usefulness and versatility are enhanced by its compact size and light weight, measuring only 117.8mm and weighing 550g.

The lens incorporates an all-new high-speed and precise RXD AF driving system. The RXD (Rapid eXtra-silent stepping Drive), stepping motor unit, operates with remarkable quietness, making it perfect for video use. The lens also features Moisture-Resistant Construction that is helpful in outdoor photography, plus hydrophobic Fluorine Coating that is highly resistant to fingerprints and debris. In addition the lens is compatible with the ''Direct Manual Focus (DMF)'' system feature of Sony cameras, enabling this new zoom to take full advantage of the advanced functions that ensure comfortable user experiences.
