Tamron 17-70mm f/2.8 Di III-A VC RXD Lens for Sony E

The Tamron 17-70mm f/2.8 Di III-A VC RXD Lens is designed for Sony E-mount APS-C mirrorless cameras. Created for everyday use, this wide to short-telephoto range lens allows you to shoot in difficult lighting conditions while maintaining control over the depth of field. It captures high-quality images with Vibration Compensation (VC) for crisp, shake-free images. The focal length range of 17-70mm is equivalent to 25.5-105mm for full-frames and features the world's first f/2.8 standard zoom lens with a 4.1x zoom ratio for APS-C cameras. 

Enjoy a Minimum Object Distance (MOD) of 0.19m for wide-angle shots and 0.39m for telephoto shots. When shooting very close to the subject, the lens enables expressive imagery with highly blurred backgrounds, a feature unique to large-aperture lenses. The high-speed RXD (Rapid eXtra-silent stepping Drive) AF drive system enables razor-sharp focus when shooting moving subjects or filming videos. The lens is remarkable quiet, eliminating possible drive sounds being picked up while shooting video. 

The lens is designed to enhance the mirrorless camera features by allowing: Fast Hybrid AF; Eye AF; Direct Manual Focus (DMF); In-camera lens correction (shading, chromatic aberration, distortion); Camera-based lens unit firmware updates.

Expand photo experiences with an advanced standard zoom lens

The 17-70mm f/2.8 Di III-A VC RXD (Model B070S) is a large aperture everyday zoom lens for Sony E-mount APS-C mirrorless cameras. This lens was created to achieve a broad zoom range and excellent image quality. With a focal length range of 17-70mm (a full-frame equivalent of 25.5-105mm), it’s the world's first f/2.8 standard zoom lens with a 4.1x zoom ratio for APS-C cameras. The 17-70mm includes Tamron's proprietary VC (Vibration Compensation). Additionally, this lens focuses very close. It features a MOD (Minimum Object Distance) of 0.19m (7.5 in) at the wide-angle end and 0.39m (15.4 in) at the telephoto end. When shooting very close to the subject, the lens enables expressive imagery with highly blurred backgrounds, a feature unique to large-aperture lenses. From portrait to landscape and your everyday life, this lens captures all of the excitement and discoveries with the finest possible detail.

VC for worry-free still photography and video capture

The 17-70mm f/2.8 utilizes Tamron's highly regarded, proprietary VC image stabilization to maximize the inherent optical performance of the lens. It reduces the degradation of picture quality caused by minute camera shake that is likely to occur during handheld shooting at slow shutter speeds under low-light conditions indoors or at dusk. When shooting video, by leveraging AI technology, image stabilization performance improves compared to conventional models.

Superb AF keeps it sharp and quiet

The AF drive incorporates an RXD (Rapid eXtra-silent stepping Drive) stepping motor unit. RXD uses an actuator that is able to precisely control the rotational angle of the motor, allowing it to drive the focusing lens without passing through a reduction gear. The addition of a sensor that detects the position of the lens to a high degree of accuracy enables high-speed and precise AF, which allows you to maintain razor-sharp focus when shooting continually moving subjects or filming video. The lens is also remarkably quiet, eliminating concerns of drive sounds being picked up while shooting video.
