Tamron 11-20mm f/2.8 Di III-A RXD Lens for Sony E (APS-C)
Discover a world of new photographic possibilities with the Tamron 11-20mm f/2.8 Di III-A RXD Lens. This compact and lightweight ultra wide-angle zoom lens is designed for APS-C mirrorless cameras, offering a constant F2.8 aperture that ensures outstanding brightness and remarkable portability.
Unleash your creativity, even in low-light conditions, thanks to the fast F2.8 aperture, allowing you to capture sharp, shake-free images. The lens incorporates special elements to minimize optical aberrations, resulting in clear, high-resolution performance throughout the entire zoom range.
Despite its fast-aperture capabilities, this lens is incredibly lightweight and compact, making it a perfect companion for everyday use and travel photography, where a smaller camera bag is preferred. With an impressive Minimum Object Distance (MOD) of 0.15m (5.9 in) at the widest end and 0.24m (9.4 in) at 20mm, you can get up close to your subjects with ease.
The lens features a fast and precise autofocus system driven by an RXD (Rapid eXtra-silent stepping Drive) stepping motor, ideal for both still and video shooting. Its moisture-resistant construction and Fluorine Coating provide additional protection, making it a reliable choice for outdoor photography.
Explore New Horizons with an Ultra Wide-Angle Zoom Lens
Covering focal lengths from 11-20mm (equivalent to 16.5-30mm on a full-frame camera), this lens offers a maximum aperture of F2.8, allowing you to enjoy the unique depth-of-field and perspective of an ultra wide-angle lens. Whether you're capturing everyday scenes at 20mm or delving into powerful ultra wide-angle shots, this lens provides easy handling, creamy bokeh, and all the advantages of fast-aperture glass. It excels in various scenarios, including architecture, landscape, environmental portraits, travel, and interior photography.
Designed with portability in mind, the lens is a perfect match for APS-C mirrorless cameras. With an overall length of just 86.2mm (3.4 in) and a weight of 335g (11.8 oz), it's a compact powerhouse. You can shoot with ease, whether it's handheld still photography or comfortable video shooting on a compact tripod or gimbal.
Experience Exceptional Optical Performance
The Tamron 11-20mm F2.8 is a high-resolution lens that prioritizes image quality. Its optical construction consists of 12 elements in 10 groups, ensuring high-resolution performance across the frame. The well-balanced arrangement includes two GM (Glass Molded Aspherical) lens elements, two LD (Low Dispersion) elements, and one XLD (eXtra Low Dispersion) element to minimize chromatic aberrations, common in fast-aperture lenses. This results in clear, crisp images, further enhanced by the lens correction features available on Sony cameras.
Discover Wide-Angle Macro Photography
This lens boasts a Minimum Object Distance (MOD) of just 0.15m (5.9 in) at the widest end, allowing you to get incredibly close to your subject. With a maximum magnification ratio of 1:4 (impressive for an ultra wide-angle lens), it opens up the world of wide-angle macro photography. The F2.8 maximum aperture creates a pleasingly shallow depth-of-field, producing soft bokeh in the background for truly unique and expressive images.
Expand Your Creative Horizons
Combine the Tamron 11-20mm F2.8 with the 17-70mm F/2.8 Di III-A VC RXD (Model B070) to cover an extensive focal length range from 11mm to 70mm (equivalent to 16.5mm to 105mm on full-frame). These lenses, with their fast, wide-open apertures, weigh a combined total of only approximately 860g (30.3 oz). This reduction in size and weight is advantageous for shooting, transportation, and travel, making it easier to manage your camera gear.
Both lenses share a 67mm filter size, simplifying filter use and eliminating the need to search for the right lens cap when switching between them. This combination allows you to explore a wide variety of photographic genres, from portraits and tabletop photography to expansive landscapes. It's an all-in-one solution for versatile photographers.
Precision Autofocus for Every Shot
The 11-20mm F2.8 features an advanced AF drive system with an RXD motor unit, ensuring you never miss a moment. The RXD motor uses an actuator to control the motor's rotational angle precisely, directly driving the focusing lens without the need for a reduction gear. A sensor detects the lens position accurately, enabling high-speed and accurate autofocus, ideal for capturing continuously moving subjects or recording video. The focusing system operates smoothly and quietly, ensuring your shooting experience is stress-free, even in quiet environments.
