This wide to standard Tamron 20-40mm f/2.8 Di III VXD Lens for Sony E offers full-frame (FE) Sony camera users an ultra-wide to standard zoom range, which is ideal for photography, video and vlogging. The lightweight and compact zoom lens can be handheld all day as it weighs just 365g, yet is capable of delivering beautiful images across the entire zoom range.

A wide f/2.8 maximum aperture is constant throughout, while the lens focuses as close as just 0.17m, which is perfect to fill the frame with your subject, whether creating videos, vlogging close to your camera or shooting stills. The lens is also fast to focus thanks to Tamron’s high-level AF  VXD linear motor, which is virtually silent for video capture and full compatible with Sony AF detection technologies.


  • Ultra wide to standard zoom lens with fixed f/2.8 aperture throughout the range
  • High quality optical design renders sharp images and video
  • Lightweight design weighing 365g
  • Fast and accurate linear Voice-coil eXtreme-torque Drive (VXD)
  • Compatible with Sony Fast Hybrid AF and Eye AF
  • Capture ultra wide macro images from 17cm with maximum magnification ratio of 1:3.8 at the wide end
  • Faster zooming with 65º zoom ring rotation arc
  • Updated lens design with improved texture and scratch resistance
  • Compact and uniform 67mm filter size, similar to other Tamron lenses for Sony E
  • Moisture resistant construction and Fluorine coating


The 20-40mm f/2.8 Di III VXD Lens delivers a fast, wide maximum f/2.8 aperture across the entire zoom range from 20mm to 40mm. It achieves this with a class-leading compact and lightweight design, which measures 86.5mm and weighs 365g.

At the 40mm end you can enjoy a natural perspective with a standard range, which is perfect for everyday shooting of anything from portraits and food photos to street photography and everyday snaps.

At the 20mm ultra wide end of the zoom, the focal length allows you to enjoy diverse subjects including landscapes, astro and cityscapes, capturing more in the frame than a classic 24mm wide angle lens.


The compact and lightweight 20-40mm f/2.8 lens delivers excellent handling which is well balanced even when accessories like camera grips or gimbal stabilisers are attached. With this one lens, you won't miss a shot, whether shooting street videography or vast landscapes during travel, as well as selfies that include expansive backgrounds.


The Tamron 20-40mm f/2.8 Di III VXD Lens for Sony E mount has an optical design with 12 elements arranged in 11 groups. These include four LD (Low Dispersion), two GM (Glass Moulded Aspherical) and one Hybrid Aspherical lens element. This generous arrangement of special lens elements strikes a balance between high image quality and the compact size. Another feature is the beautifully soft defocus blur effects and circular bokeh that are unique to the fast f/2.8 aperture from the 9 circular diaphragm blades, which remain circular for around 2-stops from f/2.8.


Tamron’s highly accomplished VXD linear motor focus mechanism delivers high-speed, high-precision AF which enables the lens to respond with quick focusing, from near to infinite. The lens provides excellent focus tracking with moving objects so that you never miss those important moments and the AF mechanism is extremely quiet, perfectly suited for both stills and video in conditions that warrant silent operation.
