Spectacular optical performance that inspires creativity

Outstanding resolution and superb overall performance in a lightweight and compact zoom lens. The 28-75mm F/2.8 Di III VXD G2 (Model A063) is a fast-aperture standard zoom lens for full-frame mirrorless cameras. The lens is the successor to the popular 28-75mm F/2.8 Di III RXD (Model A036), the lens that flipped conventional thinking about standard zoom lenses upside down.

Outstanding high-resolution performance delivers an unprecedented photo experience

High definition and spectacular image quality are the key areas of advancements. The 28-75mm F2.8 G2 features a redesigned optical system but maintains a size similar to its predecessor. The lens provides exceptionally good optical performance, edge-to-edge across the frame, throughout the entire zoom range, along with the soft, beautiful bokeh effects that are distinctive to fast-aperture lenses.

Outstanding high-resolution performance delivers an unprecedented photo experience

With the goal of producing outstanding high image quality befitting a new fast-aperture zoom lens, TAMRON redesigned the optical design in the 28-75mm F2.8 G2 from scratch. The optical construction of the 28-75mm F2.8 G2 deploys 17 elements in 15 groups. To minimize optical aberrations to an extreme degree, two LD (Low Dispersion) and two GM (Glass Molded Aspherical) lens elements are used in an optimal arrangement.

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

The AF drive system is equipped with VXD linear motor focus mechanism. VXD is exceptionally responsive and operates at high speed with great precision. The AF speed marks approximately twice* as fast as the 1st-generation 28-75mm F2.8 (Model A036). With reliable, speedy focusing from the MOD to infinity and extremely good focus tracking, you are ready for those important moments even when photographing fast-moving subjects. Moreover, the AF drive motor is very quiet, making it ideal for still photography and videography when shooting in conditions where near-silence is required.

Lightweight and compact lens body

The 28-75mm F2.8 G2 is a fast-aperture standard zoom lens, and a remarkably compact and lightweight design, just 117.6mm (4.6in)2long, with a maximum diameter of 75.8mm and weight of only 540g (19oz)**. With a size that is easy to carry and a weight that’s well-suited for handheld shooting for extended periods, the 28-75mm F2.8 G2 will likely become your best choice for travel, street shooting, everyday carry, and spontaneous photo opportunities.

** Length and weight are based on the Sony E-mount lens.

Achieves an MOD of 0.18m (7.1in) and maximum magnification ratio of 1:2.7

Close focusing has also been improved. The MOD of the 28-75mm F2.8 G2 is 0.18m (7.1in) at the wide 28mm end, an improvement over the 1st-generation 28-75mm F2.8. This allows photographers to capture powerful shots that emphasize the perspective effects unique to wide-angle photography when shooting close-ups. The working distance becomes about 4.4cm (1.7in) 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 (15in). The magnification ratio when using the longer 75mm focal length is 1:4.1, enabling close-up shooting with greater working distance.

New 2nd-generation lens design improves both operation and ergonomics

The all-new 28-75mm F2.8 G2 incorporates a new design that becomes the hallmark of TAMRON lenses introduced in the future. In constant pursuit of improving products in every way possible, TAMRON considered customer feedback and reviewed each part and component of the lens down to the finest details. As a result, TAMRON has enhanced both the operation and tactile presentation of the lens.

Zoom ring, focus ring

Grip texture has been improved by redesigning the striped pattern on the rubber focusing and zoom rings. Certain internal parts have also been enhanced. These advancements result in smoother overall operability. TAMRON has also adjusted the stiffness and torque of the zoom ring to facilitate smoother and more precise operation

New sculpted shape

The diameters of the zoom ring and focus ring have been enlarged, and the body areas around them have been slimmed down to give the lens a contoured profile that makes it easier to grip. This creates a comfortable, uneven shape that fits snugly and naturally in the hand.

Exterior has deep, luxurious black finish

The surface of the lens exterior is shiny black, much glossier than previous models. Improved abrasion resistance makes the lens harder to scratch and resists fingerprints.

Brand ring

The "brand ring" on the lens mount is a sign of trust with the user, and the smooth curved surface and glossy surface treatment give the camera a unique and dignified appearance that is pleasing to both the eye and the hand.

TAMRON Lens Utility™ expands the possibilities of still photography and video shooting

The 28-75mm F2.8 G2 is compatible with the dedicated TAMRON Lens Utility software developed in-house by TAMRON that empowers users to easily update the lens to the latest firmware without going through the camera, and includes functions to support focusing operations and other actions when shooting still images or video. By utilising a wide range of functions*, users can expand the breadth of expression in still images and video. For example, A-B Focus allows users to limit focusing to two pre-set focus points, shifting focus from one subject to another with just a click of the Focus Set Button. Users can also choose between Linear and Non-linear, which affects how the focus shifts during manual focusing.

* The ring function (Focus/Aperture) is not supported for Nikon Z mount.
