Tamron 17-28mm F2.8 RXD (A046) Image Gallery

July 27th, 2019

Tamron released their new 28-78mm F2.8 RXD lens for Sony full frame mirrorless (FE) last year to great fanfare, as it provided a legitimate alternative to the very large and very expensive Sony 24-70mm F2.8 G Master lens.  The 28-75 RXD went on to be the best selling lens of the year in its first year of release, which is a pretty stunning endorsement of its blend of solid build, good autofocus, and great optical performance.  This year Tamron has introduced a second lens in a presumed trilogy of fast zoom lenses for Sony.  They’ve tackled the wide end of things with the Tamron 17-28mm F2.8 RXD (A046).  Like the 28-75mm, they’ve chosen a slightly less conventional zoom range.  In this case, it is a little narrower than, say, the Sony 16-35mm F2.8 GM lens.  Tamron undoubtedly made this choice to allow them to create a smaller, lighter lens with excellent performance across its limited zoom range.  I’ll see how well they did in my tests. I’m doing these tests and comparisons on the Sony a7RIII.  Stay tuned for my review of the lens!
