Tamron 17-28mm f/2.8 Di III RXD Lens Price is $899

The US price of the Tamron 17-28mm f/2.8 Di III RXD FE lens for Sony E-mount is $899 and now available for pre-order.

The 17-28 is marketed as the ideal companion to Tamron’s excellent 28-75mm lens, adding a useful wideangle range. The 17-28 is 9cm (3.9″) long and weighs in at 420g (14.8oz.).  The lens is sealed against dust and moisture.

The lens is listed at AmazonBHphoto and Adorama. The Tamron 17-28mm F2.8 Di III RXD will start shipping in late July.

From the first reviews, the lens has superb optical quality, as is the FE 28-75mm f/2.8. It will have a competitive price around $899 much lower than Sony lenses.

The lens has a total of 13 elements, including two low-dispersion and one extra-low-dispersion element. It has a BBAR coating to reduce ghosting and flare and a fluorine coating to resist fingerprints and moisture. It has a minimum working distance of 19cm (7.5″) and maximum magnification of 0.19x. The lens is threaded for 67mm filters, just like the 28-75.
