The 17-50mm F/4 Di III VXD (Model A068) spans a versatile zoom range from ultra-wide to standard focal lengths, eliminating the need to swap lenses. Whether you're capturing expansive landscapes with dynamic compositions or snapping casual portraits, this single compact lens offers a wealth of creative possibilities.

With a constant F4 aperture throughout the zoom range, it's a reliable choice for both photography and video, expanding your creative horizons.
Exceptional Optical Performance
The 17-50mm F4 boasts a sophisticated optical construction with 15 elements in 13 groups. It incorporates special lens elements, including three LD (Low Dispersion), one GM (Glass Molded Aspherical), and two hybrid aspherical lenses, effectively minimizing chromatic and other aberrations. The result is sharpness and clarity across the entire frame, complemented by beautiful bokeh when shooting wide open at F4.
Compact and Lightweight Design
Weighing just 460g (16.2oz) and measuring a compact 114.4mm (4.5in) in length, the 17-50mm F4 maintains a balanced feel when attached to your Sony mirrorless camera. Its fixed barrel length and internal zoom mechanism keep the center of gravity stable during shooting. This feature ensures you can maintain framing consistency for stills and video, and it's easy to balance when used with video rigs or gimbal stabilizers. Additionally, the lens is equipped with Moisture-Resistant Construction and Fluorine Coating, providing durability in outdoor environments and facilitating easy cleaning.
Swift and Silent Autofocus
The lens utilizes a VXD (Voice-coil eXtreme-torque Drive) linear motor focus mechanism for high-speed and high-precision autofocus. It operates with incredible speed and achieves remarkable positional accuracy in increments as small as 0.005mm. This ensures you never miss a moment when shooting on the move. The quiet operation of the autofocus makes it perfect for noise-sensitive settings, whether you're capturing still images or video.
Get Closer to Your Subjects
The 17-50mm F4 has a minimum object distance (MOD) of 0.19m (7.5in) at the wide end and 0.3m (11.8in) at the 50mm end. This allows you to capture tiny subjects with exceptional detail. At the 17mm end, you can get as close as 5.7cm (2.3in) to your subject, making it ideal for shooting in tight spaces or achieving creative compositions with stunning bokeh effects.
Enhanced with TAMRON Lens Utility™ Software
This lens is compatible with TAMRON Lens Utility software, a powerful tool for adjusting lens settings, assigning camera body functions, and updating firmware. The mobile version of the software also enables remote operation without touching the lens. This flexibility allows you to customize functions for various photography and videography styles, enhancing your shooting experience.
Every aspect of this lens has been carefully considered to enhance your experience. Its surface is shiny and glossy black, offering improved abrasion resistance and resistance to fingerprints. The brand ring's smooth, curved surface not only looks dignified but also enhances grip performance. It signifies both functional beauty and high quality.
One Filter Size for All
The 17-50mm F4 shares a 67mm filter diameter with other lenses in its lineup. This not only adds to the lens's portability but also saves you money, as you can use the same filters interchangeably. Additionally, you won't need to search for different-sized lens caps when switching lenses. This seemingly small feature greatly enhances convenience across the entire lineup, in addition to the lenses' outstanding optical quality.
