Commack, NY—Tamron is developing an X-mount version of the 11-20mm F2.8 Di III-A RXD lens (model B060). The company will soon offer the fast-aperture ultrawide-angle zoom lens for Fujifilm APS-C mirrorless interchangeable-lens cameras.

Furthermore, the 11–20mm f/2.8 ultrawide-angle zoom lens features a constant aperture of f/2.8. However, despite its fast f/2.8 aperture, the lens is very small. Tamron says it “feels perfectly balanced attached to a compact APS-C mirrorless camera body.”
In addition, with the full-frame–equivalent zoom range of 16.5–30mm, the lightweight lens is a solution for everyday photography. What’s more, its compact size, fast f/2.8 aperture and practical zoom range also make the 11–20mm zoom a choice for travel, landscape, street and general photography.
At the 11mm ultrawide-angle end, the lens also allows dramatic close-range shooting performance. It achieves an MOD (minimum object distance) of just 5.9 inches and a maximum magnification ratio of 1:4. As a result, the lens is an option for wide-angle macro shooting that exploits the creative effects of naturally occurring distortion that ultrawide-angle lenses can provide.
Additionally, the lens employs a quiet RXD (rapid eXtra-silent stepping drive) stepping motor AF drive. The drive also makes the lens suitable for both still and video applications.
Other features include moisture-resistant construction and a durable fluorine coating that provide extra protection when shooting outdoors. Tamron will release further specs, availability and pricing at a later time.
