From Transcontinenta UK Ltd:

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

The Tamron 20-40mm F/2.8 is a unique and fast-aperture ultra-wide to standard zoom lens that can be easily carried around for everyday shooting. It is perfect for both shooting photos as video production. 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 F/2.8 zoom 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 autofocus system using the linear motor focus mechanism. The VXD gives a quiet and agile performance and achieves high-speed and high-precision autofocus. With an MOD (Minimum Object Distance) of just 17 centimetres and a maximum magnification ratio of 1:3.8 at the wide end, the lens provides powerful close-range shooting capability, offering the added feature of wide-angle macrophotography.

With this new 20-40mm F/2.8 zoom Tamron creates a new focal range for a standard zoom lens. 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 and 365g. 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.
