Tamron Announce the 28-75 F/2.8 Di III RXD FE in the US for Just $799!

Tamron are staking their claim to be the go to budget friendly third party manufacturer for fast FE mount lenses today with the announcement of the 28-75 F/2.8 Di III RXD FE. The super fast constant aperture zoom is likely most noteworthy for it’s price, a frankly staggering $799. Although we do not know exactly how the lens performs,there is no doubt that a lens this fast, with a constant aperture, for this price is pretty awesome. Let’s hope it lives up to the hype:

  • E-Mount Lens/Full-Frame Format
  • Constant f/2.8 Maximum Aperture
  • RXD Stepping AF Motor
  • Fluorine-Coated Front Element
  • Moisture-Resistant Construction

Blending a sleek form-factor with a versatile working range, the 28-75mm f/2.8 Di III RXD from Tamron is a full-frame-compatible lens for Sony E-mount mirrorless cameras. Spanning wide-angle to portrait-length, a constant f/2.8 maximum aperture complements this range and affords increased control over depth of field along with enhanced low-light performance. Benefitting the optical design is an RXD stepping motor, which enables quick, near-silent autofocus performance to suit stills and video, along with full-time manual focus override and a minimum focusing distance of 7.5″. Suiting this lens’s use in harsh climates, it also sports a moisture-resistant construction along with a fluorine-coated front element to protect against fingerprints and smudging.

  • Versatile standard zoom is designed for full-frame Sony E-mount mirrorless cameras, however 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 brightness throughout the zoom range and offers improved control over depth of field.

  • RXD (Rapid eXtra-silent stepping Drive) autofocus motor delivers impressively quiet, quick, and smooth focusing performance to suit both stills and video applications. This focusing system also offers a minimum focusing distance of just 7.5″ for working with close-up subjects, affords full-time manual focus override, and it is compatible with Sony’s Direct Manual Focus function or fine-tuned manual focus control.

  • A moisture-resistant construction benefits this lens’ use in inclement conditions, and a fluorine coating has also been applied to the front lens element to protect against dust, dirt, and smearing.
