TAMRON 17-28mm F2.8 (Model A046) for Sony E-mount x Mediterranean street snap and landscape by Philip Ruopp
The new 17-28mm F/2.8 Di III RXD (Model A046) is a dream lens not only for sports and action photographers. It offers great closeup perspectives. Perfect for capturing the full dynamics of the subject. The large open aperture of F/2.8 ensures that the subject stands out sharply with a wonderfully soft bokeh. And best of all, the duo of 17-28mm and 28-75mm F/2.8 Di III RXD (Model A036) not only covers the most important zoom range, it also weighs less than a kilo together!
The sports, outdoor and travel photographer is on the move halfway through the year. Since 2011 he has travelled through fifty countries - from Greenland to Hawaii - with his camera, mostly on behalf of renowned outdoor manufacturers and together with extreme athletes. For the first eight years of his professional career, Ruopp spent most of his time in the studio, where he skillfully staged products for various manufacturers. Since then, technical aspects have been rather secondary to him and only a means to an end. He therefore always uses equipment he can absolutely rely on and prefers to concentrate on catching the right moment with the recording. With his pictures he tells stories that later bring the special atmosphere back to life.
