Tamron has announced its new 20mm F/2.8 Di III OSD M 1:2 full frame lens for Sony E-mount will start shipping on the 30th of January for $349 USD.

Tamron announced the 20mm F/2.8, 24mm f/2.8 Di III OSD M1:2, and 35mm f/2.8 Di III OSD M1:2 back in October last year.

Key features

  • Wide-angle prime is designed for full-frame Sony E-mount mirrorless cameras, however, is also suitable for use with APS-C models where it provides a 30mm equivalent focal length.
  • Modestly bright f/2.8 maximum aperture strikes a balance between being suitable for working in available lighting conditions and realizing an impressively compact and lightweight profile.
  • Three LD (Low Dispersion) elements reduce chromatic aberrations and color fringing in order to produce increased clarity and color fidelity.
  • One molded glass aspherical element suppresses distortion and spherical aberrations for greater sharpness and more accurate rendering.
  • BBAR (Broad-Band Anti-Reflection) coating has been applied to lens elements to reduce surface reflections and prevent lens flare and ghosting for increased contrast and color accuracy.
  • Ideal for close-up shooting, this lens offers a half life-size 1:2 maximum magnification along with a minimum focusing distance of 4.3″ to suit working at near distances.
  • OSD stepping motor offers especially quiet, fast, and precise autofocus performance along with full-time manual focus override.
  • A moisture-resistant construction benefits this lens’ use in inclement conditions, and a fluorine coating has also been applied to the front lens element to protect against dust, dirt, and smearing.
  • Rounded seven-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality.

The 20mm f/2.8 Di III OSD M 1:2 is a flexible wide-angle prime designed for full-frame Sony E-mount mirrorless cameras. This lens uses a modestly bright maximum aperture to achieve a small and lightweight profile that is ideal for every day, walkaround shooting.

Also contributing to its versatility is a half life-size 1:2 maximum magnification ratio and 4.3″ minimum focusing distance for working with close-up subjects. An OSD stepping motor achieves fast and near-silent autofocus performance along with full-time manual focus override. Additionally, the lens sports a moisture-resistant physical design along with a fluorine coating to suit working in inclement conditions.
