Lens Description

The Tamron Di III 70-180mm F/2.8 VXD is a normal to medium telephoto zoom designed for cameras with a Full-Frame sensor. This bright constant-aperture zoom covers a 70mm to 180mm focal-range. The body of this lens is weatherproof against adverse weather such as rain and snow. It has sealing to prevent entry of water and dust.

This zoom can focus down to 27cm from the imaging plane which gives it a maximum magnification of 0.5X. The lens supports autofocus and features a switch to disengage AF for focusing manually. A built-in focus motor is used to set the focus-distance. It allowed Tamron to optimize the motor precisely for this lens in order to maximize performance.

This lens is only available for Sony E. Follow this link for all current compatible digital cameras: Sony E mount cameras with Full-Frame or smaller sensors.
