Tamron 17-70mm F2.8 Di III-A VC RXD Lens for Fujifilm X Officially Announced, Priced $799, Available for Pre-Order

Tamron 17-70mm F2.8 Di III-A VC RXD lens was officially announced for Fujifilm X mount. It features a maximum aperture of F2.8 across the entire 4.1x zoom ratio that covers the focal length range of 17-70mm (full-frame equivalent of 25.5-105mm), and superb optical performance. It is a small, lightweight lens equipped with Tamronfs VC (Vibration Compensation) mechanism to minimize camera shake. The VC mechanism leverages AI technology when shooting video. It is also equipped with the quiet RXD (Rapid eXtra-silent stepping Drive) AF motor and has minimal focus breathing. These features enable videographers to shoot comfortably when using a mirrorless interchangeable-lens camera. For added versatility, the 17-70mm F2.8 offers an exceptional MOD (Minimum Object Distance) of 7.5f at the wide-angle end, Moisture-Resistant Construction and Fluorine Coating. Its 67mm filter size is the same as most TAMRON lenses for mirrorless cameras. It is a highly useful lens that delivers high image quality for photography and videography with its fast F2.8 aperture.

This new lens costs $799, first available for pre-order at B&H/ Adorama.
