Tamron Announce 70-180mm f/2.8 Di III VXD Lens For Sony E-Mount: 70 180mm Side View

Tamron has announced a new Sony E-Mount full-frame lens which is quiet in operation, as well as offering fast focus and superb performance.

It features a newly developed VXD (Voice-coil eXtreme-torqueDrive) linear motor focus mechanism which produces an autofocus drive that is quieter and quicker than ever before making it ideal for fast moving subjects and also great for video.

In addition, a floating system is used to achieve excellent optical performance at all shooting distances. By simultaneously operating two VXD units via electronic control, the system produces impressive optical performance throughout the focus and zoom range.

Construction of the 70-180mm VXD lens includes several special lens elements that contribute to its superb imaging performance. The very short 0.85m MOD (Minimum Object Distance) expands its overall versatility as well, making it great for close up’s too. Its 67mm filter diameter is also common with other Tamron lenses for Sony E mount full-frame cameras, adding to user convenience when having a range of Tamron lenses in this series.
