Tamron 28-200mm F/2.8-5.6 Di III RXD Lens for Sony FE is a wide-to-super-tele zoom distinguished by its bright f/2.8 maximum aperture at the wide end of the zoom, along with its sleek and portable design. A series of specialized elements are used to maintain high sharpness and clarity throughout the zoom range.
Benefitting the optical design is an RXD stepping motor, which enables quick, near-silent autofocus performance to suit stills and video, along with full-time manual focus override and a minimum focusing distance of 7.5″. Suiting this lens’s use in harsh climates, it also sports a moisture-resistant construction along with a fluorine-coated front element to protect against fingerprints and smudging.

A new model “71” that reinvents the notion of all-in-one zoom lenses
In 1992, Tamron launched its first all-in-one zoom lens, the AF 28-200mm F/3.8-5.6 Aspherical (Model 71D). At that time, the Model 71D astonished the world and overturned the existing perception of all-in-one zoom lenses as being large, heavy and delivering poor image quality.
Since then, Tamron has continued to develop and innovate as a pioneer in the field of all-in-one zoom lenses, delivering a stream of ground-breaking models such as the 18-400mm F/3.5-6.3 Di II VC HLD (Model B028), delivering the world’s only 22.2x zoom ratio*. Now the Model A071, too, shares the legendary name “71” given to Tamron’s revolutionary all-in-one zoom lens: a name infused with the destiny to write a new chapter in the history of all-in-one zoom lenses.
Compact, lightweight design offering superior portability with all-in-one zoom versatility
From wide-angle to telephoto, all-in-one zoom lenses deliver a wider range of usefulness, from everyday snaps to travel and much more. That’s why Tamron pursued a high level of portability in the development of the 28-200mm F2.8-5.6, achieving a compact, lightweight design that’s a mere 117mm (4.6 in) long and weighs just 575g (20.3 oz). The small size enables comfort and convenience, even during extensive travel, without the burden of a heavy camera bag. The 67mm filter size is the same as other lenses in Tamron’s mirrorless lens lineup*. This means that the filters such as PL (Polarizer) and lens caps can be used for all models in the series, for greater convenience and less hassle during lens changes.
Maximum aperture at the 28mm setting is a blazing fast F2.8
The 28-200mm F2.8-5.6 is the first*1 all-in-one zoom lens for full-frame mirrorless cameras to offer a maximum aperture of F2.8. It maintains outstanding performance throughout the entire zoom range, and aperture values of F3.5 at 50mm, F4.5 at 100mm, F5.6 at 200mm. From landscape photography to portrait photos and snapshots, the 28-200mm F2.8-5.6 delivers finely detailed images in a wide range of shooting situations.
The generous use of special LD and XLD lens elements (with properties close to those of fluorite) enables it to thoroughly minimize chromatic and other aberrations, while the application of BBAR (Broad-Band Anti-Reflection) Coating offers high anti-reflective benefits and reduces ghosting and flare that are otherwise likely to occur when shooting backlight scenes. Additionally, by leveraging camera functionality*2, the lens delivers excellent optical performance to match the high-resolution image sensors on the latest cameras, achieving beautiful images that are a cut above all-in-one zoom lenses of the past.
Close-up shooting performance that’s astonishing for an all-in-one zoom lens
The 28-200mm F2.8-5.6 delivers amazing close-up performance for an all-in-one zoom lens. At 28mm wide-angle, the MOD is 0.19m (7.5 in) with a maximum magnification ratio of 1:3.1, and at the 200mm telephoto end it has an MOD of 0.8m (31.5 in) with a maximum magnification ratio of 1:3.8. In addition to capturing stunning close-up images, you can leverage the blurred background bokeh utilizing a large F-number and enjoy unique close-up shots that were not possible with all-in-one zoom lenses until now.
High performance autofocus system means you’ll own every shooting opportunity
The AF drive on the 28-200mm F2.8-5.6 includes an RXD motor unit to help you stay focused on the action. RXD uses an actuator to precisely control the rotational angle of the motor, allowing it to directly drive the focusing lens without passing through a reduction gear. A sensor that precisely detects the position of the lens enables high-speed and accurate AF, which is ideal when shooting continually moving subjects or recording video. And with a focusing system that is both smooth and quiet, the 28-200mm F2.8-5.6 lets you shoot free from stress not worrying the drive sound in a quiet environment.
The extensive zoom range means you can capture every situation
The 28-200mm F2.8-5.6 for Sony E-mount covers a broad range of focal lengths in a single lens, starting from 28mm at the wide-angle end to 200mm at the telephoto end. This versatile range enables diverse photographic expression, from wide-angle shooting of expansive landscapes to close-up and compressive compositions in telephoto shooting. The compact, lightweight design makes it easy to carry the lens with ease, anytime, anywhere. The 28-200mm F2.8-5.6 is a very convenient lens that can be used for nearly any genre, from vast landscapes to snapshots around town, table-top photography and for professional-looking portraits.
Conquer any photo opportunity with Tamron’s 67mm filter size lineup
By combining the 28-200mm F2.8-5.6 with other members of Tamron’s lineup* of 67mm filter size lenses for full-frame mirrorless cameras you can cover an even wider range of scenes. For example, combining the 28-200mm F2.8-5.6 with the 17-28mm F/2.8 Di III RXD (Model A046) provides the focal length range of 17mm to 200mm, from ultra wide-angle to the telephoto. Even when carried together, these two lenses weigh less than 1kg (995g/35.1 oz), offering excellent portability.
Combining this all-in-one zoom with the 20mm F/2.8 Di III OSD M1:2 (Model F050) or other lenses in Tamron’s fixed focal lens series enables expansion of the wide-angle end to match the subject being shot. The combined weight of the two lenses is less than 800g (28.2 oz), so they’re astonishingly easy to carry together. The filter size 67mm is shared with other lenses in series, too. This enables efficiency in filter use and places an emphasis on flexibility, since the same polarizer filters and lens caps can be shared between all models.
