70-180mm F/2.8 Di III VXD Lens - Sony E-Mount

    The 70-180mm F/2.8 Di Ill VXD is a large aperture telephoto zoom lens for Sony E-mount full-frame mirrorless cameras. The greatest feature is its superb performance even while attaining a fast F/2.8 aperture across the entire zoom range and offering the world's lightest and most compact package at just 149mm (5.9 in) length (at the 70mm setting) and a weight of 81 0g (28.6 oz). Thanks to the generous use of special lens elements, the 70-180mm F/2.8 achieves excellent optical performance from center to edge. With the short MOD (Minimum Object Distance) of 0.85m (33.5 in), the 70-180mm F/2.8 expands the possibilities for photographic expression.

    For the AF drive, Tamron has newly developed the VXD (Voice-coil eXtreme-torque Drive), a linear motor focus mechanism. A unique capability of the 70-180mm F/2.8 is shooting in the close-up range down to 0.27m·2 (10.6 in) at the 70mm wide-angle end, specifically when manual focus (MF) is set on the camera body. Add it all together and you can go light while going long-and get the shot!
