The world's first 17-70mm F2.8, large aperture standard zoom lens for APS-C mirrorless cameras
The 17-70mm F/2.8 Di III-A VC RXD (Model B070) is a large aperture everyday zoom lens for Sony E-mount APS-C and Fujifilm-X mirrorless cameras. This lens was created to achieve a broad zoom range and excellent image quality. With a focal length range of 17-70mm (a full-frame equivalent of 25.5-105mm), it’s the world's first F2.8 standard zoom lens with a 4.1x zoom ratio for APS-C cameras. The 17-70mm includes Tamron's proprietary VC (Vibration Compensation). Additionally, this lens focuses very close. It features an MOD (Minimum Object Distance) of 0.19m (7.5 in) at the wide-angle end and 0.39m (15.4 in) at the telephoto end. When shooting very close to the subject, the lens enables expressive imagery with highly blurred backgrounds, a feature unique to large aperture lenses. From portrait to landscape, and your everyday life, this lens captures all of the excitement and discoveries with the finest possible detail.
Features and Functions
VC for worry-free still photography and video capture
The 17-70mm F2.8 utilizes Tamron's highly regarded, proprietary VC image stabilization to maximize the inherent optical performance of the lens. It reduces the degradation of picture quality caused by minute camera shake that is likely to occur during handheld shooting at slow shutter speeds under low-light conditions indoors or at dusk. When shooting video, by leveraging AI technology, image stabilization performance improves compared to conventional models.
Superb AF keeps it sharp and quiet
The AF drive incorporates an RXD (Rapid eXtra-silent stepping Drive) stepping motor unit. RXD uses an actuator that is able to precisely control the rotational angle of the motor, allowing it to drive the focusing lens without passing through a reduction gear.The addition of a sensor that detects the position of the lens to a high degree of accuracy enables high-speed and precise AF, which allows you to maintain razorsharp focus when shooting continually moving subjects or filming video. The lens is also remarkably quiet, eliminating concerns of drive sounds being picked up while shooting video
Built with Mirrorless in Mind
Tamron’s new 17-70mm F2.8 zoom is compatible with many of the advanced features that are specific to mirrorless cameras. This includes:
Fast Hybrid AF
Direct Manual Focus (DMF)
