The AF drive system is equipped with TAMRON’s VXD linear motor focus mechanism. VXD is exceptionally responsive and operates at high speed with great precision. The AF speed is approximately twice as fast as the 1st generation. With reliable, speedy focusing, you are ready for those important moments. Moreover, the AF drive motor is very quiet, which is extra important when recording video.
Close focusing has also been improved. The MOD (Minimum Object Distance) of the 28-75mm F2.8 G2 is 0.18m (7.1 in) at the wide 28mm end, an improvement over the 1st-generation Model A036. The working distance becomes about 4.4cm (1.7 in) at the MOD. The maximum magnification ratio is 1:2.7. Get closer to any subject and enjoy the world of wide macro photography. In addition, at the telephoto end, the MOD is 0.38m (15 in). The maximum magnification ratio when using the longer 75mm focal length is 1:4.1, enabling close-up shooting.
The all-new 28-75mm F2.8 G2 incorporates a new design that becomes the hallmark of TAMRON lenses introduced in the future. Grip texture has been improved by redesigning the striped pattern on the rubber of focusing and zoom rings. Certain internal parts have also been enhanced. The surface of the lens exterior is shiny black, much glossier than previous models. TAMRON considered customer feedback and reviewed each part and component of the lens down to the finest details.
