Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8 Di III VXD G2 Nikon Z Lens

The Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8 Di III VXD G2 Nikon Z Lens is a versatile wide-to-portrait-length lens for full-frame Nikon Z-Mount mirrorless cameras and APS-C models, where it provides a 42-112.5mm equivalent focal length range.

With a bright constant f/2.8 aperture and a host of upgraded features, it offers the best image quality in the standard zoom lens class. Revamped optics yield higher resolution and improved sharpness over the previous generation and the focusing system has been replaced with a VXD (Voice-coil eXtreme-torque Drive) mechanism that achieves faster, more precise performance to suit both stills and video applications.

As the second generation of this popular lens, this updated version also sees refinements to the exterior design of the lens, a closer minimum focusing distance of 18cm, and a new connector port for streamlining the process of working with Tamron Lens Utility software to adjust lens settings.

It also offers a fast, quiet VXD linear motor for high-speed and high-precision autofocus.

Various customisation with TAMRON Lens UtilityTM

Outstanding high-resolution performance delivers an unprecedented photo experience

The optical construction of the 28-75mm f/2.8 G2 deploys 17 elements in 15 groups. To minimise optical aberrations to an extreme degree, two LD (Low Dispersion) and two GM (Glass Moulded Aspherical) lens elements are used in an optimal arrangement. The lens demonstrates high resolving power to the edges of the frame at all focal lengths, while also offering the soft and beautiful bokeh that is distinctive to fast-aperture lenses. The lens is ideal for a wide range of photographic genres from street photography and portraiture to landscapes and general family events like vacations and holidays.

Capture all the action with high-speed, high-precision AF

This advanced AF mechanism combines class-leading speed and precision, enabling fast and accurate focusing from MOD (Minimum Object Distance) through to infinity. What’s more, excellent focus tracking performance of moving objects makes it possible to capture sharp images. Plus, the lens is extremely quiet, so it’s perfectly suited for both still and video shooting in conditions that demand silent operation.

Compact and light weight design

The 28-75mm f/2.8 G2 for Nikon Z mount is 119.8mm long and weight 550g that is easy to carry and a light weight that’s well-suited for handheld shooting for extended periods. The lens will likely become your best choice for travel, street shooting, everyday carry, and spontaneous photo opportunities.

Achieves an MOD of 0.18m and maximum magnification ratio of 1:2.7

Close focusing has also been improved. The MOD of the 28-75mm f/2.8 G2 is 0.18m at the wide 28mm end, an improvement over the 1st-generation Model A036. This allows photographers to capture powerful shots that emphasise the perspective effects unique to wide-angle photography when shooting close-ups. The working distance becomes about 4.4cm at the MOD. The maximum magnification ratio is 1:2.7. Get closer to any subject and enjoy the world of wide macro photography. In addition, at the telephoto end the MOD is 0.38m. The magnification ratio when using the longer 75mm focal length is 1:4.1, enabling close-up shooting with greater working distance.

Lens customisation by TAMRON Lens Utility

This lens is compatible with TAMRON Lens Utility software (for PC/ for devices with Android OS) that was developed in-house by TAMRON. TAMRON Lens Utility will let users customise focus ring settings and update to the latest firmware when necessary. In addition, by using the mobile version, Focus Preset and A-B Focus are available, and those functions can be operated remotely without touching the lens. Users may customise functions for various still photography and videography shooting styles, thereby providing a more personalised and fulfilling shooting experience.


Moisture-Resistant ConstructionFor greater protection when shooting outdoors, leak-resistant seals throughout the lens barrel help protect your equipment. Also, the Connector Port is the water-proofed USB Type-C variety.
Focus Set ButtonFluorine CoatingThe front surface of the lens element is coated with a protective fluorine compound that is water- and oil-repellant. The lens surface is easier to wipe clean and is less vulnerable to the damaging effects of dirt, dust, moisture and fingerprints.
