Tamron 70-180mm f/2.8 Di III VXD First Look

Digitalcamera.jp posted the first images of the Tamron 70-180mm f/2.8 Di III VXD in addition to some more info which you can read translated below or in Japanese here. The blog doesn’t break posts down into pages so I cant link to the post exactly, but as of today it is still on the main page. He also got a look at the new Tamron 20mm, 24mm, and 35mm lens.

The Tamron 70-180mm f/2.8 Di III VXD will be released next spring and the Tamron 20mm f/2.8 will be released in January.


-Tamron will be exhibiting the new E mount lens, which will be unveiled for the first time in general, at the booth over acrylic.
-With a development announcement, the 70-180mmF2.8 is extremely compact, although it will be released next spring.
-If you look at the actual machine, it is compact enough not to think of F2.8. It feels even smaller than Canon’s “RF70-200mmF2.8L”.
-Weighs in the 800g range, this size makes it feel like you can easily carry it around.
-Furthermore, the AF speed is quite high, so it seems to play an active role in shooting moving objects. It ’s a very fun lens.

-In addition, “24mmF2.8” and “35mmF2.8” released in December and “20mmF2.8” scheduled to be released in January are also reference exhibits.
-This is a single-focus lens that can shoot up to 1/2 times macro photography, and it is an affordable full-size lens that costs 46,000 yen.
-The appearance is the same for all three, but the lens hood is an inner-type square only for 35mm, so you can expect the effect as a hood.
-It is very lightweight because it suppresses the brightness with F2.8. Moreover, this is also a great expectation for a lens that can be enjoyed up to full-scale macro photography.
