The Tamron 17-70mm lens 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). It’s small and lightweight design is equipped with VC (Vibration Compensation) mechanism to minimise camera shake, which also leverages AI technology when shooting video. Focussing is both fast and quiet with Tamron’s RXD (Rapid eXtra-silent stepping Drive) AF motor and the optical design has great control, limiting focus breathing to a minimum.
These two features give this lens great credentials for videographers and stills shooters to create outstanding results using a mirrorless interchangeable-lens camera. For added versatility, the 17-70mm F2.8 offers a really close MOD (Minimum Object Distance) of 19cm at the wide-angle end and 39cm at the telephoto end.
The lens is well protected from the elements with Moisture-Resistant Construction having seals to protect the moving surfaces of the lens, along with a Fluorine Coating to the front element to make it water and oil repellent as well as easy to clean. Its 67mm filter size is the same as the Tamron 18-300mm for Fuji X mount, making it easy to swap Polarizers, ND filters etc between lenses.
It’s broad zoom range and high image quality will help you to capture all the excitement and discoveries with the finest possible detail, either for photography or videography, with its fast F2.8 aperture, VC stabilization and moisture resistant construction.
