Development Announcement : Tamron 11-20mm F2.8 for Fujifilm X-mount

By on

Tamron has announced the development of a new FUJIFILM X-Mount zoom lens: the 11-20mm F/2.8 Di III-A RXD.  The 11-20mm lens gives a 16.5-30mm equivalent range on an X-series camera, providing a faster alternative to Fujifilm’s own XF10-24mm F4 OIS WR though not going as wide as the XF8-16mm F2.8 WR.

This lens, already available for Sony E-Mount cameras, covers APS-C image sensors. It has a constant F/2.8 maximum aperture and features a quiet RXD stepping motor handy for video use. It uses the same 12 element/10 group design which means it also maintains the 15cm (5.9″) minimum focus distance at the wide end, which provides 1:4 magnification.

Exact specs haven’t been provided but it’s reasonable to assume the X-mount 11-20mm will closely match the 73mm (2.9″) width, 86mm (3.4″) length, and 335g (11.8oz) weight of the E-mount version. It will accept a 67mm front-mounted filter.

Tamron started releasing FUJIFILM X-Mount lenses in 2021, and it seems like for now, the company is focusing on producing zoom lenses. Last year, the Tamron 17-70mm F/2.8 Di III-A VC RXD was launched, an affordable and versatile piece of glass with built-in image stabilization. It is now listed at B&HPhoto. The price is not yet released.

TAMRON Announces Development of Compact, Lightweight F2.8 Ultra Wide-Angle Zoom Lens for FUJIFILM X-Mount APS-C Mirrorless Cameras

February 19, 2023, Commack, NY – TAMRON announces the development of the 11-20mm F/2.8 Di III-A[1] RXD (Model B060), a fast-aperture ultra wide-angle zoom lens for FUJIFILM X-mount APS-C mirrorless cameras.

The TAMRON 11-20mm F2.8 ultra wide-angle zoom lens features a constant aperture of F2.8. Despite its fast F2.8 aperture, the lens is very small and feels perfectly balanced attached to a compact APS-C mirrorless camera body. With the full-frame equivalent zoom range of 16.5-30mm, it’s the ideal lens for everyday use. At the 11mm ultra wide-angle end, the lens allows stunning close-range shooting performance, achieving an MOD (Minimum Object Distance) of 0.15m (5.9 in) and a maximum magnification ratio of 1:4. This feature invites wide-angle macro shooting that exploits the creative effects of naturally occurring distortion that only ultra wide-angle lenses can provide. Additionally, the quiet RXD (Rapid eXtra-silent stepping Drive) stepping motor AF drive is perfect for both still and video use. Moisture-Resistant Construction and durable Fluorine Coating provide extra protection when shooting outdoors. The compact size, fast F2.8 aperture, practical zoom range and superb image quality make the 11-20mm zoom an ideal choice for travel, landscape, street, and general photography.
