F/2.8 ultra wide-angle, close focusing, fixed focal lens for Sony E-mount full-frame mirrorless cameras

The 20mm F/2.8 Di III OSD M1:2 (Model F050) is fast handling and packs expressive power that is the signature of fixed focal lenses. It’s the ideal first ultra wide-angle lens for any photographer. It is designed exclusively for mirrorless cameras. Light weight and compact, the Model F050 is extremely portable, ideal for situations where you need to travel light. The Model F050 is a creative tool that dynamically captures scenery by maximizing the perspective unique to ultra wide-angle lenses. The incredibly short 0.11m (4.3 in) MOD (Minimum Object Distance) makes it possible to get closer to your subjects than you’d ever imagined. In addition to the F/2.8 aperture, the Model F050 is constructed using special glass materials including LD (Low Dispersion) and GM (Glass Molded Aspherical) lens elements effectively arranged to quash aberrations. The Model F050 provides outstanding optical performance across the entire frame, and delivers a sharp image, right down to the texture of the subject. With Moisture-Resistant Construction and dirt-resistant Fluorine Coating, photographers can shoot confidently outdoors. If you can own only one ultra wide-angle, the Model F050 should be your first choice.

Get closer to your subject. As close as 0.11m.

One of the key features that makes this lens so exciting is its amazing ability to shoot close-ups. With this lens, you can get closer to an object than you’d ever imagined. At the 0.11m (4.3 in) MOD, the lens achieves its maximum magnification ratio of 1:2. You’ll never again be frustrated because you cannot get close to an object while shooting. This remarkable performance allows users to create compositions that exploit dramatic perspective (closer subjects are larger, and distant ones are smaller) and that are unique to wide-angle lenses. By getting close to an object, you can produce a one-of-a-kind photo and leverage the beautifully blurred background bokeh.

The extreme portability enhances the limitless versatility of the lens

Take it with you anywhere. This lens travels as well as it performs. And because it’s matched to lightweight full-frame mirrorless cameras, your entire system becomes light, fast and nimble. It has a very compact body, weighing just 220g (7.8 oz) and an overall length of 64mm (2.5 in). It’s comfortably portable, highly maneuverable and amazingly easy to use and compose. Because the overall length does not change when focusing, you can get as close to an object as you need to without fear of accidentally bumping the front element. The lens has the same 67mm filter diameter as the other members of the series of Tamron high-speed lenses for Sony E-mount cameras. So you can swap filters (like polarizers), lens caps and other accessories for convenience.

Ultra wide-angle is dramatically creative

This lens provides outstanding optical performance and overall image quality, characteristics relentlessly demanded from a prime, fixed focal lens. The expert arrangement of the LD and GM specialized glass elements greatly controls aberrations, including chromatic aberrations. Tamron’s proprietary BBAR (Broad-Band Anti-Reflection) Coating reduces ghosting and flare, which can otherwise occur when taking a photo against the sun. Moreover, leveraging your camera body’s features* it delivers, throughout the frame, high resolution performance that maximizes the benefits of the latest high-megapixel cameras. Whether shooting on the street, full-scale landscapes or architectural photography, this lens delivers exceptionally crisp, colorful and beautiful images and helps you fulfill your creative ambitions.

Tamron lenses for Sony E-mount cameras are functional, versatile and fun!

This lens is just one of many Tamron lenses for Sony E-mount cameras. Throughout the lineup you’ll find creative tools that help you enjoy the world of mirrorless cameras and a broader range of photographic possibilities. Small and light weight (the perfect match for mirrorless cameras) they are definitively portable and can easily be all carried together as a complete set that’s ready for every situation. For convenience sake, all of the lenses in the series have the same 67mm filter diameter. You can share the use of a single polarizing (or other) filter and avoid the aggravation of searching through lens caps when changing lenses. Built with convenience and ease-of-use in mind, you’ll be attracted by the compact size and thoroughly dazzled by the outstanding performance.

Made for Stunning Wide-Angle Images

Discover new angles with the Tamron 20mm f2.8 Di III OSD M1:2 Macro lens (Model F050). This fast prime lens embraces an ultra-wide perspective to bring  astro photography and street photography scenes brilliantly to life. With special Low Dispersion and Glass Moulded Aspherical lens elements and a BBAR (Broad-Band Anti-Reflection) Coating, the Tamron 20mm f2.8 recreates scenes with stunning precision, vibrant colour and lifelike texture, free from reflections and distortion.

Shoot as Close as 11cm at 1:2 Magnification 

Get closer to subjects than you ever thought possible. The Tamron 20mm f2.8 macro lens has an incredibly short MOD (minimum object distance) allowing you to capture objects at 1:2 magnification just 11cm away from the lens. Combined with the lens’ ultra-wide angle of view, this lets you creatively exaggerate perspective, enlarging close subjects and shrinking distant ones for striking effect.

Optimized Silent Drive for Fast, Silent AF

Don’t miss those hard-to-get moments. The Tamron 20mm f2.8 Sony lens’ newly designed AF (autofocus) system uses Optimized Silent Drive to detect and track subjects quickly, accurately and silently. So even if you’re photographing a swift-moving butterfly or a quiet presentation, you needn’t worry about missing the shot or disrupting the mood. Inner focusing keeps the lens’ length consistent during focusing, so you can approach subjects closely without worrying about bumping the front lens surface. 

Freedom to Move & Protection from the Elements

The Tamron 20mm f/2.8 Di III lens can travel almost anywhere and is perfect for shooting the best travel destinations in Australia. Weighing just 220g, it’s light and compact to match Sony mirrorless cameras, keeping your system easy to transport and handle – perfect for shooting on the go, whether on the streets of a foreign city or behind the scenes at a gala event. The Tamron 20mm f2.8 boasts a moisture-resistant build and dirt-resistant fluorine coating, so it’s perfect for outdoor shooting, too.
