The fast and compact ultra-wide-angle zoom Tamron 11-20mm F/2.8 Di III-A RXD is made specifically with many disciplines of photography in mind

This exciting announcement tells of the development of the Tamron 11-20mm Di III-A RXD, which features an ultra-wide angle, fast aperture and exceptionally quiet RXD stepping motor drive. These facets come together for exceptional optical performance. For use with Fujifilm X-mount camera bodies.

The Tamron 11-20mm is perfectly balanced with its ultra-wide angle and fast aperture compacted into a small but mighty package. It is the ideal companion for an APS-C mirrorless camera body.

Ideal for everyday use, the lens possesses a full-frame equivalent zoom range of 16.5-30mm. At the ultra-wide 11mm end, it delivers captivating close-up performance, with a minimum object distance (MOD) of 0.15m and maximum magnification of 1:4. This allows macro shots to be taken at an extremely wide angle, with a rage of creative effects. A close-up of a flower and its natural surrounding can be captured with immense detail, while a telephoto macro shot shows only the flower against a blurred background.

In addition, the whisper quiet RXD stepping motor AF drive gives photographers and videographers a fantastic option for travel, landscape, street and general photography. Protected by a moisture resistant construction and durable fluorine coating, the waterproof design gives extra protection against the elements and transit.

The Tamron 11-20mm F/2.8 Di III-A RXD (model B060) for Fujifilm X-mount cameras will be available from Tamron dealers in the UK and Ireland in the spring. The exact date and recommended retail price will be announced in due course.
