Zoom in and enjoy the world around you!
NEW Tamron 70-300mm F/4.5-6.3 Di III RXD
Transcontinenta UK Ltd., distributor for Tamron UK and Ireland, introduces a new a telephoto zoom lens for Sony E-mount full-frame mirrorless cameras: Tamron 70-300mm F/4.5-6.3 Di III RXD (Model A047). While Tamron has manufactured many popular telephoto zoom lenses that extend to 300mm for DSLR cameras, the newly released 70-300mm F/4.5-6.3 Di III RXD is the first model designed for full-frame mirrorless cameras. Developed with the concept of bringing the joy of easy telephoto shooting to photographers everywhere, it’s the world’s smallest and lightest 70-300mm zoom lens at 148mm and 545g and delivers exceptional image quality.


The smallest and lightest telephoto zoom lens in the world for Sony full-frame E-mount mirrorless cameras

Tamron uses a special design for mirrorless cameras and has once again achieved a compact size by moving the aperture up to F/6.3 to the telephoto range. This allowed the maximum diameter to be limited to 77mm. The 70-300mm F/4.5-6.3 Di III RXD is the world’s smallest and lightest telephoto zoom lens for full-frame mirrorless cameras. Compatible with Sony’s popular E-mount cameras, the lens was developed from the concept of enabling photographers to make the universe of 300mm telephoto zoom photography easier.


Compact size ensures maximum mobility

Users can enjoy high-resolution images combined with the stunning bokeh qualities that can only be achieved with a telephoto lens. The Tamron 70-300mm F/4.5-6.3 Di III RXD is a versatile lens for shooting landscapes, sports and other action, pets, wildlife and more. The lens also demonstrates the potential for portrait photography, casual snapshots and scenarios where you need to be mobile if you need to shoot out of hand. Zooming in on distant objects and bringing them closer is one of the joys of telephoto shots. This new zoom lens gives you access to that new world.


High quality images and perfect handling

Tamron strives for light design as a top priority and has developed a compact 70-300mm F/4.5-6.3 zoom lens that makes taking 300mm telephoto shots easier and more fun. With the introduction of this lens, all photographers, from beginners to experienced enthusiasts looking for a compact, lightweight telephoto zoom, can comfortably enjoy the benefits of a powerful, versatile zoom without worrying about size or weight. Photographers shooting with in-camera image stabilisation or using a tripod can reduce the weight of their equipment with this new Tamron lens. In addition, the 70-300mm F/4.5-6.3 Di III RXD maintains a good balance even when used with APS-C E-mount cameras that are smaller than full-frame cameras (e.g. a Sony α6500), so that these users can enjoy shooting with an even “longer” telephoto zoom with an equivalent telephoto zoom range of approx. 450mm!


Superior AF keeps it sharp and still

The AF drive includes a sensor that accurately detects the position of the lens, while the Tamron RXD motor unit provides optimised AF control. This ensures very fast and accurate autofocus operation and allows users to focus on continuously moving subjects captured in telephoto zoom mode. The ultra-quiet AF allows the lens to be used discreetly in concert halls and other low-noise situations, including video recordings.
