1. Best image quality in standard zoom lens class
The optics have been revamped from the ground up, employing the latest design expertise to develop an optical construction with 17 elements in 15 groups. With two optimally arranged LD (Low Dispersion) and GM (Glass Molded Aspherical) lens elements, optical aberrations are controlled to the maximum degree possible. Image quality at wide-open aperture has been significantly improved over the predecessor Model A036, offering extremely high resolution throughout the entire zoom range and from edge-to-edge of the frame. The lens also delivers the soft and beautiful bokeh effects distinctive to fast-aperture lenses. The new 28-75mm F2.8 G2 achieves extremely high performance when paired with high-grade, ultra-high resolution digital cameras and is the same compact size as its predecessor Model A036.
2. Fast, quiet VXD linear motor for high-speed and high-precision autofocus
The AF drive system employs TAMRON’s VXD linear motor focus mechanism. The high-speed, high-precision AF is exceedingly responsive to the actions of the photographer, providing a dependable and steady focusing experience from the MOD to infinity, despite the fast F2.8 aperture. Focusing speed has been improved approximately twice2
as fast as its predecessor. The lens offers excellent focus tracking of moving objects so you are ready for those important moments. Additionally, the focus motor is quiet, so it is ideal for shooting both still images and video in situations that demand low noise.2 Compared to RXD (Rapid eXtra-silent stepping Drive) used in Model A036
3. MOD of 0.18m (7.1 in) at wide end and maximum magnification ratio of 1:2.7 for creative close-ups
The Model A063 features an MOD of 0.18m (7.1 in) at the wide end, an improvement over the 0.19m (7.5 in) limit of the Model A036. The working distance shrinks to around 4.4cm (1.7 in) when operating at the MOD. With a maximum magnification ratio of 1:2.7, you can get close to your subject for wide macro photography, enabling powerful visual impact with the subject large while keeping a wide view of the background in frame.
4. New design provides enhanced texture and greater user-friendliness
The all-new 28-75mm F2.8 G2 incorporates a new design that becomes the hallmark of TAMRON lenses introduced in the future. Changes to the texture of the zoom ring surface and focus ring surface improve the grip and enhance ease of operation. The surface of the lens exterior is shiny black, much glossier than previous models. Improved abrasion resistance makes the lens harder to scratch and resists fingerprints. In addition, certain internal parts have been enhanced. These advancements result in smoother overall operability. TAMRON has also adjusted the resistance and torque of the zoom ring to facilitate smoother and more precise operation.
5. Lightweight, compact design with emphasis on ease of use, plus 67mm filter size
6. Compatible with many camera-specific features and functions, including Fast Hybrid AF and Eye AF
