According to the press text, the Tamron 35-150mm F/2-2.8 Di III VXD and Tamron 28-75mm F/2.8 Di III VXD G2 will be available for sale after 28 October 2021 along with the Tamron 18-300 mm f/3.5-6.3 Di III-A VC VXD (model B061X) for Fujifilm X-mount.
The Tamron 35-150mm F/2-2.8 Di III VXD is the world’s first mirrorless zoom lens with a maximum wide-open aperture of F2.
The lens uses the company’s VXD linear motor, which the company says will give fast, precise autofocus, including full compatibility with Sony’s Fast Hybrid AF and Eye AF systems.
Minimum focus distance ranges from 33cm (13″) at the wide end to 85cm (33.5″) at full tele, giving a maximum magnification ratio that ranges from 1:5.7 to 1:5.9.

The 28-75mm F2.8 Di III VXD G2 has been redesigned to make use of a VXD linear focus motor, rather than the RXD stepper motor used in the original lens. This should result in faster, smoother autofocus.
