I really enjoyed using the TAMRON 20-40mm F/2.8 Di III VXD (Model A062) in my latest road trip in Switzerland for multiple reasons:
Having a compact lens is always suitable for travel photographer/filmmaker like me, because this allows me to be more creative and focus on creating content without making a lot of effort carrying heavy gear. I really like being lighter without compromise of image quality, which brings me to the second point. The 20-40mm F2.8 has a very good image quality, it's sharp even at fast-aperture F2.8 paired to the demanding Sony α1.
The lens has very good low light capabilities thanks to the fast-aperture F2.8 which allows to take high quality pictures without a tripod like the pictures I took during the sunset. The bokeh at F2.8 is smooth and the result was good. The lens is versatile and gives us the opportunity to take close-up shots (wide macro). This option is very welcomed to have very close focus subject like the pictures of flowers/insects I took during the road trip. The Moisture-Resistant Construction allowed me to take pictures in a rainy condition and had no problem.
Overall, the lens is very versatile, we can use it for different cases (landscape/cityscape/macro/travel/portrait), the image quality is very good and the form factor makes it a go to for a travel photographer/filmmaker.
