Hands-On with the Tamron 17-70mm F/2.8 for FUJIFILM X Mount

Hands-On with the Tamron 17-70mm F/2.8 for FUJIFILM X Mount

What's new from Tamron?

The 17-70mm F/2.8 Di III-A2 VC RXD Lens for Fujifilm!

Previously released for the Sony system, it is now available for Fujifilm X Mount.

This is Tamron's second zoom lens for the Fujifilm X Series cameras. Last year they released the 18-300mm f/3.5-6.3 Di III-A VC VXD for Fujifilm.

It's really great to see brands like Tamron releasing high-quality, compact zoom lenses for the X series cameras!

Some of the features of the 17-70mm F/2.8 include:

  • 25.5-105mm (35mm Equivalent)
  • Aperture Range: f/2.8 to f/16
  • Three Aspherical Elements
  • Two Low Dispersion Elements
  • BBAR and Fluorine Coatings
  • RXD Stepping AF Motor
  • VC Image Stabilization
  • Moisture-Resistant Construction
  • Rounded 9-Blade Diaphragm

Let's Go On Location with the Tamron 17-70mm F/2.8

I got to take this awesome lens out for a spin at Pike Place Market recently, check out the video to hear more about the capabilities of this lens.



This lens is a great choice for a variety of genres including landscapes, portraits, street photography, cityscapes, and travel.

It's lightweight, and compact. With the moisture resistance we can feel confident heading out on a drizzly PNW day, paired with their vibration compensation, we have a powerhouse of a lens that won't break the bank!

Pick yours up today for only $799, for Fujifilm or Sony.
