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 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.
