Tamron 17-70mm f/2.8 Di III-A VC RXD APS-C E-Mount Lens

Tamron 17-70mm f/2.8 Di III-A VC RXD lens for APS-C-format Sony E-mount mirrorless cameras ($799) offers a versatile 25.5-105mm-equivalent zoom range along with a fast f/2.8 max aperture. The wide to short-tele range is ideal for everyday shooting and the fast f/2.8 constant maximum aperture suits working in difficult lighting conditions and control over depth of field. Lens design includes both aspherical and low dispersion elements for high sharpness, clarity, and color accuracy. Individual elements also feature Tamron’s BBAR coating, which suppresses flare and ghosting for greater contrast when working in backlit and harsh lighting conditions.

Vibration Compensation image stabilization reduces the appearance of camera shake for steadier photo and video recording in low-light. An RXD stepping motor enables quick, near-silent autofocus performance along with full-time manual focus override and a minimum focusing distance of 7.5″. The lens features a moisture-resistant construction along with a fluorine-coated front element to protect against fingerprints and smudging.
