Driven by a determined quest for portability, the 20-40mm F/2.8 Di III VXD (Model A062) is TAMRON’s innovative, fast-aperture Sony E-mount zoom lens that will change your mind about standard zooms. The lens starts from 20mm at the ultra wide-angle end and covers up to 40mm in the standard focal range. Despite the breadth of the zoom range, it still offers class-leading compact size and light weight. Useful in a wide variety of shooting situations, the new zoom is ideal for everything from casual snaps and family events to landscapes captured with natural compositions and perspective, and even indoor photography in tight quarters using the ultra wide-angle. In addition, since the 20mm wide-angle field-of-view captures scenes in all their glory, it is also ideal for self-shooting during vlogs and other content. The lens’s AF drive uses the fast and high-precision linear motor focus mechanism VXD (Voice-coil eXtreme-torque Drive). The optical design makes use of special lens elements and strikes a perfect balance between a compact body and high image quality. The lens offers excellent close-shooting performance, offering wide macro shooting with an MOD (Minimum Object Distance) of 0.17m (6.7 in) and maximum magnification ratio of 1:3.8 at the 20mm end. All these exciting features are brought together into a super-compact package, making the 20-40mm F2.8 a lens that lets you enjoy hassle-free shooting. The high-quality finish pleases the eye, while the exceptional portability and light weight of this fast F2.8 lens means you’ll always want it with you as you pursue a joyful world of photographic encounters.
