The Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8 Di III RXD lens is lightweight and compact, weighing just 550g with a total length of only 117.8mm (4.6 in). The lens captures fine details across the focus plane, delivering excellent image quality. Whats more, the highly rendered optical performance of the A036 supports the latest high-resolution cameras, while providing all the characteristics of a fast aperture lens. Stunning bokeh spreads softly from the plane of focus to accentuate the subject, making the A036 ideal for all types of photography, from portraits to landscapes to street photography.
The Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8 Di III RXD lens breaks all the rules regarding minimum focus distance. No longer must the minimum focus distance of a zoom lens be fixed throughout the focal range. The A036 reaches a short minimum focus distance of 19cm at the 28mm wide-angle end achieving a maximum magnification ratio of 1:2.9. A working distance of just 5.7cm from the front element allows you to shoot close-up with a sense of perspective unique to wide angles. At the 75mm telephoto end, the 39cm minimum focus distance provides an image magnification of 1:4, allowing close-up shooting with a pleasantly blurred background similar to a macro lens.
The AF drive incorporates an RXD (Rapid eXtra-silent stepping Drive) stepping motor unit. RXD uses an actuator that is able to precisely control the rotational angle of the motor, allowing it to drive the focusing lens without passing through a reduction gear. The addition of a sensor that detects the position of the lens to a high degree of accuracy enables high-speed and precise AF, which allows you to maintain razor-sharp focus when shooting continually moving subjects or filming video. The lens is also remarkably quiet, eliminating concerns of drive sounds being picked up while shooting video.
A special glass with an extremely low colour dispersion index for the greatest level of sharpness and compensation of chromatic aberration.
The extension length of the lens does not change during focusing and the close focusing distance is significantly reduced across the entire focusing range.
