From Transcontinenta UK Ltd:

Transcontinenta UK Ltd., Tamron distributor for UK and Ireland, announces that Tamron starts the development of a brand-new lens for Sony E-mount full-frame cameras: the Tamron 20-40mm F/2.8 Di III VXD (Model A062).

The 20-40mm F/2.8, Tamron's latest innovation, is an unparalleled new fast-aperture standard zoom lens that can be easily carried around for everyday shooting, for both still images and video. Designed for Sony E-mount full-frame mirrorless cameras, the lens was created in aggressive pursuit of portability that is ideal for everyday use. Starting from 20mm at the ultra wide-angle end, and covering up to 40mm in the standard focal range, it is the smallest and lightest in its class. The Tamron 20-40mm F/2.8 delivers beautiful images across the entire zoom range and is great for still photography and for creating vlogs and other video content. The lens incorporates Tamron's VXD (Voice-coil eXtreme-torque Drive), an AF drive system using the linear motor focus mechanism. The VXD boasts superior quietness and agile performance, and achieves high-speed and high-precision autofocus. With an MOD (Minimum Object Distance) of just 0.17m (6.7 in) and maximum magnification ratio 1:3.8 at the wide end, the lens provides exceptional close-range shooting capability, offering the added feature of wide-angle macrophotography.

The 20-40mm F/2.8 is Tamron's innovative creation of a new standard zoom lens, born from the unbridled desire to produce a compact size that can be carried around easily. It delivers a fast F/2.8 aperture across the entire zoom range from 20mm to 40mm and achieves a class-leading compact and lightweight design at just 86.5mm (3.4 in) and 365g (12.9 oz). At the longest zoom end, the lens offers a standard focal range of 40mm, handy for everyday shooting of snaps, portraits, and food photos. Meanwhile, at the wide end, the ultra-wide 20mm focal length lets users enjoy a broad range of photography. This includes stunning and powerful natural landscapes that make use of the unique ultra wide-angle perspective, something that cannot be expressed as readily with a fast-aperture standard zoom lens that starts at 24mm.
