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.

Other features that support a great shooting experience include Moisture-Resistant Construction for added weather protection and Fluorine coating to the front element for easy maintenance. In addition, the 70-180mm F/2.8 is fully compatible with various camera-specific features including Fast Hybrid AF and Eye AF.

Developed under the concept of 'making large aperture zoom lenses user-friendly', the70-180mm f/2.8 provides users with a great portrait & telephoto option to complement the existing 17-28mm f/2.8 RXD wide-angle zoom and the 28-75mm f/2.8 RXD standard zoom lens. 

The Tamron 70-180mm f/2.8 Di III VXD is available to pre-order now, with stocks due from 14 May 2020. It has an RRP of £1349.99.

Other lenses in Tamron's Sony E-Mount fast full-frame range are the 17-28mm and 28-75mm optics.
