    Top comment

    "My go to lens for EVERYTHING!...The weather-sealing provides added peace of mind when shooting in varying environmental conditions. The smooth manual focus ring is a nice touch, offering precise control for those who prefer manual adjustments. ...Nice lens...I have not tested or programmed the button and I feel that I could use that (if it works) to auto focus with the button while the camera is set to manual focus.

    Product Description

    The Tamron 28-75mm F/2.8 Di III VXD G2 (Model A063) provides outstanding resolution and superb overall performance in a lightweight and compact zoom lens for Sony E-mount full-frame mirrorless cameras. High definition and spectacular image quality are the key areas of advancements. The Model A063 features a redesigned optical system but maintains a size similar to its predecessor. The lens provides exceptionally strong optical performance, edge-to-edge across the frame, throughout the entire zoom range, along with the soft, beautiful bokeh effects that are distinctive to fast aperture lenses. The lens features Tamron’s VXD autofocus motor to enable high speed, high precision auto-focusing. Closeup shooting capabilities have also been improved and achieve an MOD of 7.1” at 28mm and a maximum image magnification ratio of 1:2.7. It is equipped with new, groundbreaking features that enable users to easily perform customization and firmware updates themselves. For example, users can reverse the direction of the focus ring for manual focus operation. Additionally, Tamron has adopted a new design with improved ergonomics and revised the exterior coating of the lens body to improve scratch resistance. The filter size is 67mm, which is standard among Tamron's fast aperture zoom lens series and enables the sharing of lens caps, filters, and other accessories. In addition to features such as Moisture-Resistant Construction and a protective Fluorine Coating, the lens supports various features built into Sony E-Mount cameras, including Fast Hybrid AF, Eye AF and in-camera lens corrections (shading, chromatic aberration, distortion).
