Tamron Co., Ltd., has unveiled its new 28-75mm F/2.8 Di III VXD G2 (Model A063) lens, specifically designed for Nikon Z mount full-frame mirrorless cameras. Scheduled for release on April 18, 2024, this lens promises outstanding resolution and performance in a compact package, enhancing the creative potential for photographers. Sony E mount users will already be familiar with the lens which has proved to be a popular choice.

The 28-75mm F2.8 G2 distinguishes itself with its lightweight and compact design, making it an ideal companion for the high-resolution demands of modern digital cameras. The lens features Tamron’s VXD (Voice-coil eXtreme-torque Drive) linear motor focus mechanism, known for its speed, precision, and quiet operation, suitable for both stills and video recording.

One of the standout characteristics of this lens is its Minimum Object Distance (MOD) of 0.18m (7.1 inches) at the wide end, allowing for a maximum magnification ratio of 1:2.7. This close-up capability, paired with its zoom range, provides versatility for various shooting scenarios, from landscape to macro photography.

Tamron has also paid particular attention to the lens’ usability and durability. The barrel features a coating for enhanced scratch resistance, and the rubber focusing ring ensures a comfortable and secure grip. These design choices underscore Tamron’s commitment to both functionality and aesthetic appeal.

In terms of optical performance, the lens boasts an advanced construction with 17 elements in 15 groups, including LD (Low Dispersion) and GM (Glass Molded Aspherical) elements to minimize aberrations. This setup ensures sharp, high-resolution imagery across the entire zoom range, even at the maximum aperture of f/2.8, which also facilitates beautiful bokeh effects.

Additionally, the 28-75mm F2.8 G2 is compatible with the Tamron Lens Utility software, enabling firmware updates and customization of lens settings to suit individual shooting styles. Its moisture-resistant construction and fluorine coating add a layer of protection against the elements, making it a reliable tool for photographers in various environments.

Weighing 550g (19.4oz) and measuring 119.8mm (4.7 inches) in length, this lens is both portable and practical for a wide range of photography pursuits, from travel and street photography to event and studio work.

The Tamron 28-75mm F/2.8 Di III VXD G2 is a testament to Tamron’s innovation in the compact fast-aperture zoom lens category, now extended to Nikon Z mount users, offering a blend of performance, convenience, and creativity.
