Tamron has announced an 11-20mm F/2.8 Di III-A RXD, a new wide-angle zoom lens for Fujifilm X-mount cameras with a release date set for spring 2023.
The 11-20mm lens gives a 16.5-30mm equivalent range on an X-series camera, providing a faster alternative to Fujifilm’s own XF10-24mm F4 OIS WR though not going as wide as the XF8-16mm F2.8 WR.
The Tamron 11-20mm F/2.8 Di III-A RXD allows a minimum focusing distance of 0.15m and a maximum magnification of 1:4, allowing users to shoot wide-angle macro shots.
Also on board the Tamron 11-20mm F/2.8 Di III-A RXD is the company’s Rapid eXtra-silent stepping Drive (RXD), which enables quiet performance when filming video.
Key details of the Tamron 11-20mm F2.8 Di III-A RXD for Fujifilm X-mount:
- Ultra-wide angle zoom lens with F2.8 aperture
- RXD stepping motor drive for silent stills and video shooting
- MOD of 0.15m (5.9in) at 11mm focal length
- Waterproof construction and fluorine coating
Other features include a Fluorine Coating and a moisture-resistant construction.
The Tamron 11-20mm F/2.8 Di III-A RXD price tag will be revealed at a later date, the company says. Tamron started releasing FUJIFILM X-Mount lenses in 2021, and it seems like for now, the company is focusing on producing zoom lenses. Last year, the Tamron 17-70mm F/2.8 Di III-A VC RXD was launched, an affordable and versatile piece of glass with built-in image stabilization. It is now listed at B&HPhoto.
