Excerpt from the Award Citation of the EISA Jury
EISA WIDE-ANGLE ZOOM LENS 2019-2020
17-28mm F/2.8 Di III RXD (Model A046)
The Tamron 17-28mm F/2.8 Di III RXD is an affordable large-aperture wide-angle zoom for Sony full-frame mirrorless cameras.
Designed to complement the firm’s 28-75mm F/2.8 Di III RXD, it features a similarly compact, lightweight design and weather-resistant construction.
It’s a really strong performer in terms of image quality: resolution and contrast are excellent for its class, while the optical system assures outstanding colour accuracy with minimal chromatic aberration.
The lens employs a silent and fast stepping motor for autofocus, making it very suitable for both stills and video recording.

35-150mm F/2.8-4 Di VC OSD (Model A043)
The Tamron 35-150mm F2.8-4 Di VC OSD is a standard zoom lens for Canon and Nikon full-frame DSLRs.
Its somewhat unusual zoom range, combined with a minimum focus distance of 45cm, makes it particularly well suited for portraits, ranging from environmental studies to close-ups.
Thanks to its compact size and light weight it is also a perfect travel companion.
It offers an unusually fast aperture for such a range, from f/2.8 at wide-angle through to f/4 at the telephoto end.
The lens incorporates Tamron’s Dual Micro-Processing Unit system, which assures optimal autofocus performance and effective vibration compensation, allowing for sharp handheld shots.
