Nothing escapes this high-performance ultra wide-angle zoom
Light and Compact – Versatile lens to capture the breadth of your vision. Fast aperture and superb optical performance for dynamic images.
You’ll be amazed from the very first shot
Offering the unprecedented brightness of constant F2.8 and outstanding portability, the 11-20mm F/2.8 Di III-A2 RXD (Model B060) is a fast-aperture ultra wide-angle zoom lens for Sony E-mount APS-C mirrorless cameras. The F2.8 maximum aperture is a world’s first for Sony E-mount APS-C mirrorless in this category. Because the fast-aperture lets you maintain a high shutter speed even when shooting in dark conditions, you can capture sharp images with minimal hand shake. Also, special lens elements have been optimally arranged to suppress optical aberrations. These features combine to produce clear images and high-resolution performance. The lens is so light weight and compact that it is hard to believe it is a fast-aperture ultra wide-angle zoom lens. This makes it ideal for regular use, and for travel when you want to carry a smaller camera bag. The 11-20mm F2.8 achieves an MOD (Minimum Object Distance) of 0.15m (5.9 in) at the widest end and 0.24m (9.4 in) at the 20mm end, ensuring the ability to close in on subjects as you please. The lens also incorporates a fast precision AF drive system with an RXD (Rapid-eXtra-silent stepping Drive) stepping motor unit. Moisture-Resistant Construction and Fluorine Coating join forces to offer additional protection when shooting outdoors. Everything you see, from daily life to travels, is in your photographic grasp with this lens. The 11-20mm F2.8 will expand your enjoyment of shooting by combining excellent portability with the ability to capture images unique to fast-aperture lenses.
Capture dynamic images with a fast-aperture ultra wide-angle zoom lens
Covering focal lengths from 11-20mm (equivalent to 16.5-30mm in full-frame format), this lens is the first ultra wide-angle lens for Sony E-mount APS-C mirrorless cameras in the world to achieve a maximum aperture of F2.8 and allows users to fully enjoy the soft bokeh effects, distinctive depth-of-field and unique perspective provided by a fast-aperture lens. Enjoy a higher degree of photographic freedom than ever before, such as taking regular snapshots at the 20mm end, which has a rather natural angle of view, and then challenging yourself to take powerful ultra wide-angle shots at the wide end – all while enjoying the easy handling and the advantages that fast-aperture lenses offer. The lens shines in various scenarios, including architecture, landscape, indoor environmental portraits, and interior photography.
Explore a wide variety of situations by combining two lenses in TAMRON’s series of fast-aperture zooms for APS-C mirrorless cameras
By combining the 11-20mm F2.8 and its balance of excellent portability and high image quality with the 17-70mm F/2.8 Di III-A VC RXD (Model B070), the combination of these two lenses covers an extreme range of focal lengths from 11mm to 70mm (equivalent to 16.5mm to 105mm on full-frame cameras) with a fast, wide-open aperture of F2.8. The combined weight of the two lenses is only approximately 860g (30.3 oz). Drastically reducing bulky size and weight can greatly lighten the load during shooting and transportation and is convenient during travel when you want to reduce the size and weight of your camera bag as much as possible. Additionally, like most of the TAMRON’s other lenses for Sony E-mount cameras, the filter size is unified at 67mm. In addition to allowing the shared use of PL and various other filters between lenses, the unified size is also highly convenient as it eliminates the hassle of finding the right lens cap when switching lenses. With these two lenses covering a broad angle of view, users can easily enjoy photography spanning various genres from portrait work to tabletop photography and landscapes. Have it all!
High performance autofocus system means you’ll own every shooting opportunity
The AF drive on the 11-20mm F2.8 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 11-20mm F2.8 lets you shoot free from stress not worrying the drive sound in a quiet environment.
