Tamron has announced a new 17-28mm f/2.8 Di III RXD lens for Sony FE mount cameras, priced at £899.99.

The new Tamron 17-28mm f/2.8 Di III RXD lens weighs in at just 420g and measure 99cm in length. It also offers a minimum object distance of 19cm at the wide-angle end of the focal range.

A built-in Rapid eXtra-silent stepping Drive (RXD) AF motor promises fast and quiet AF, which should appeal to videographers.

Other features include a moisture-resistant construction and a hydrophobic fluorine coating to prevent fingerprints and dust.

The Tamron 17-28mm f/2.8 Di III RXD will be released at the end of July 2019.
