New to Sony E-Mount full-frame camera? Take a look at this “one-package” lens for all occasions, the all-in-one Tamron 28-200mm F2.8‐5.6 DiⅢ RXD
The Tamron 28-200mm F2.8‐5.6 DiⅢ RXD, also code-named Model A071 which was launched earlier this month. This is an all-rounder lens to fit your regular photoshoot, especially cool if you are travelling and just wanted to bring ONE lens, and this should be that ONE lens – although there’s a native Sony version which cost around 25% more and starts at F3.5.
These are the top five reasons why you should consider to add this lens to your collection.
World’s First Superzoom to starts at F2.8
Designed exclusively for Sony E-mount. The lens has a large maximum aperture of F2.8 at 28mm wide end, which represents a world’s first for all-in-one zoom lenses, and delivers high-level performance across the entire zoom range, from the 28mm wide-angle end to 200mm telephoto. It maintains outstanding performance throughout the entire zoom range, and aperture values of F3.5 at 50mm, F4.5 at 100mm, F5.6 at 200mm. From landscape photography to portrait photos and snapshots, the 28-200mm F2.8-5.6 delivers finely detailed images in a wide range of shooting situations.
Mighty Zoom yet Compact
From wide-angle to telephoto, all-in-one zoom lenses deliver a wider range of usefulness, from everyday snaps to travel and much more. The compactness and lightweight design that’s a mere 117mm long and weighs just 575g. The small size enables comfort and convenience, even during extensive travel, without the burden of a heavy camera bag. The 67mm filter size is the same as other lenses in Tamron’s mirrorless lens lineup for its fixed and zoom lenses. This means that the filters such as PL (Polarizer) and lens caps can be used for all models in the series, for greater convenience and less hassle during lens changes.
Excellent Close-up shooting
The 28-200mm F2.8-5.6 delivers amazing close-up performance for an all-in-one zoom lens. At 28mm wide-angle, the MOD is 0.19m with a maximum magnification ratio of 1:3.1, and at the 200mm telephoto end, it has a MOD of 0.8m with a maximum magnification ratio of 1:3.8. In addition to capturing stunning close-up images, you can leverage the blurred background bokeh utilizing a large F-number and enjoy unique close-up shots that were not possible with all-in-one zoom lenses until now.
The AF drive on the 28-200mm F2.8-5.6 is powered by an RXD motor unit to help you stay focused on the action. RXD uses an actuator to precisely control the rotational angle of the motor, allowing it to directly drive the focusing lens without passing through a reduction gear. A sensor that precisely detects the position of the lens enables high-speed and accurate AF, which is ideal when shooting continually moving subjects or recording video.
Great Glasses and Built
The generous use of special LD and XLD lens elements enables it to thoroughly minimize chromatic and other aberrations, while the application of BBAR (Broad-Band Anti-Reflection) Coating offers high anti-reflective benefits and reduces ghosting and flare that are otherwise likely to occur when shooting backlight scenes. Additionally, by leveraging camera functionality, the lens delivers excellent optical performance to match the high-resolution image sensors on the latest cameras, achieving beautiful images that are a cut above all-in-one zoom lenses of the past.
While we awaits for the actual unit to test and review, this lens should be available this July 2020 with the retail price of RM3,380. Contact Futuromic Photo AV Sdn Bhd if you want more details.
