Fast Aperture, Ultra Wide-Angle Zoom Lens
Covering focal lengths from 11-20mm (equivalent to 16.5-30mm in full-frame format), and achieving a maximum aperture of F2.8 it allows users to fully enjoy the soft bokeh effects, distinctive depth-of-field and unique perspective provided by a fast-aperture lens. Enjoy a higher degree of photographic freedom than ever before, such as taking regular snapshots at the 20mm end, which has a rather natural angle of view, and then challenging yourself to take powerful ultra wide-angle shots at the wide end – all while enjoying the easy handling and the advantages that fast-aperture lenses offer. The lens shines in various scenarios, including architecture, landscape, indoor environmental portraits, and interior photography.
Compact and Lightweight
The lens was designed to be exceptionally compact and light weight, an ideal match with Fuji mirrorless cameras. It has an overall length of 86.2mm (3.4 in), and weighs 335g (11.8 oz). Imagine a lens so small and light that it is hard to believe it is a full-fledged fast-aperture ultra wide-angle zoom. You can concentrate on shooting without worrying about bulk or weight. When used with a compatible Fuji mirrorless camera body, you will enjoy carefree handheld shooting of still images, or even find it easy to shoot video using a compact tripod or gimbal.
Outstanding Performance of the Tamron 11-20mm f/2.8
The 11-20mm F2.8 is a high-resolution lens that focuses on superb image quality as a full-fledged fast-aperture ultra wide-angle zoom. The optical construction includes 12 elements in 10 groups. High resolution performance is maintained across the entire frame with the well-balanced arrangement of two GM (Glass Molded Aspherical) lens elements. Two LD (Low Dispersion) and one XLD (eXtra Low Dispersion) lens elements are used to suppress the chromatic aberrations that tend to occur when shooting at the wide-open aperture of fast-aperture lenses. These features combine to render clear, crisp images. In addition, the use of the lens correction features built into Sony cameras lets users harness extra lens performance gains.
Wide-Angle Macro with an MOD of 0.15m
The MOD (Minimum Object Distance) is just 0.15m (5.9 in) at the widest end. This extreme close-range shooting performance allows you to get as close to a subject as you like. The maximum magnification ratio is 1:4 (an astonishing feat for an ultra wide-angle lens) and it unlocks powerful wide-angle macro shooting utilizing the unique perspective that makes near objects look larger, and distant objects smaller. Additionally, using the F2.8 maximum aperture produces a shallower depth-of-field that creates soft bokeh in the background, allowing users to take distinctive images with unique expressions.
Wide Variety of Solutions
By combining the 11-20mm F2.8 and its balance of excellent portability and high image quality with the 17-70mm F/2.8 Di III-A VC RXD (Model B070), the combination of these two lenses covers an extreme range of focal lengths from 11mm to 70mm (equivalent to 16.5mm to 105mm on full-frame cameras) with a fast, wide-open aperture of F2.8. The combined weight of the two lenses is only approximately 860g (30.3 oz). Drastically reducing bulky size and weight can greatly lighten the load during shooting and transportation and is convenient during travel when you want to reduce the size and weight of your camera bag as much as possible. Additionally, like most of the TAMRON's other lenses for Fuji cameras, the filter size is unified at 67mm. In addition to allowing the shared use of PL and various other filters between lenses, the unified size is also highly convenient as it eliminates the hassle of finding the right lens cap when switching lenses. With these two lenses covering a broad angle of view, users can easily enjoy photography spanning various genres from portrait work to tabletop photography and landscapes. Have it all!
High Performance Autofocus System
The AF drive on the 11-20mm F2.8 includes an RXD motor unit to help you stay focused on the action. RXD uses an actuator to precisely control the rotational angle of the motor, allowing it to directly drive the focusing lens without passing through a reduction gear. A sensor that precisely detects the position of the lens enables high-speed and accurate AF, which is ideal when shooting continually moving subjects or recording video. And with a focusing system that is both smooth and quiet, the 11-20mm F2.8 lets you shoot free from stress not worrying the drive sound in a quiet environment.
