Tamron introduced the 70-300mm F/4.5-6.3 Di III RXD (Model A047), a full frame lens which appeared a week ago. It is designed for mirrorless cameras with Sony E mount. The development of the product, which the manufacturer calls the smallest and lightest full-frame zoom lens for mirrorless cameras with a focal length range up to 300mm, was announced in early August.
The manufacturer called the lens release date October 29, warning that the “current global health crisis” could affect production timing and delivery schedule.
The product features include a high-speed auto focusing stepping drive (RXD – Rapid eXtra-silent stepping drive) and support for all focusing functions available in Sony cameras, including eye tracking. In addition, image correction with camera tools and lens firmware updates are supported. The lens is weatherproof.
