Excerpt from the Award Citation

  1. The Tamron 28-75mm F2.8 Di III RXD has the distinction of being the first third-party lens designed from scratch to be compatible with Sony's full-frame mirrorless cameras. It has seriously impressed us with its optical quality, close-up ability, relatively fast (and silent) autofocus, pleasant handling and excellent value for money. A perfect companion to Sony's a7 III, we hope that the 28-75mm F2.8 Di III RXD is the first of many future mirrorless-oriented lenses from Tamron, which has really impressed us in the past couple of years with its range of high-quality Di prime and zoom.
