The Tamron 20-40mm F/2.8 is a unique and fast-aperture ultra-wide to standard zoom lens that can be easily carried around for everyday shooting. It is perfect for both shooting photos as video production. Starting from 20mm at the ultra wide-angle end, and covering up to 40mm in the standard focal range, it is the smallest and lightest F/2.8 zoom in its class. The Tamron 20-40mm F/2.8 delivers beautiful images across the entire zoom range and is great for still photography and for creating vlogs and other video content.

The lens incorporates Tamron's VXD (Voice-coil eXtreme-torque Drive), an autofocus system using the linear motor focus mechanism. The VXD gives a quiet and agile performance, and achieves high-speed and high-precision autofocus. With an MOD (Minimum Object Distance) of just 17 centimetres and a maximum magnification ratio of 1:3.8 at the wide end, the lens provides powerful close-range shooting capability, offering the added feature of wide-angle macrophotography.

Fast F/2.8 aperture, compact size and versatile 20-40mm zoom

With this new 20-40mm F/2.8 zoom Tamron creates a new focal range for a standard zoom lens. It delivers a fast F/2.8 aperture across the entire zoom range from 20mm to 40mm and achieves a class-leading compact and lightweight design at just 86.5mm and 365g. At the longest zoom end, the lens offers a standard focal range of 40mm, handy for everyday shooting of snaps, portraits, and food photos. Meanwhile, at the wide end, the ultra-wide 20mm focal length lets users enjoy a broad range of photography. This includes stunning and powerful natural landscapes that make use of the unique ultra wide-angle perspective, something that cannot be expressed as readily with a fast-aperture standard zoom lens that starts at 24mm.

Fabulous for family videos, vlogs, and other online content

The compact and lightweight 20-40mm F/2.8 offers excellent handling that is well-balanced, even when using a camera grip or gimbal stabilizer. With this unique lens, you won't miss a shot, from street videography to vast landscapes during travel and selfies with wide backgrounds.

High image quality in a compact, lightweight body

The 20-40mm F2.8 has an optical construction of 12 elements in 11 groups. With four LD (Low Dispersion), two GM (Glass Molded Aspherical) and one Hybrid Aspherical lens elements, it boasts a generous arrangement of special lens elements. This strikes a balance between high image quality and compact size across the entire zoom range. Another feature is the beautifully soft bokeh that is unique to the fast F2.8 aperture.

Tamron's VXD linear motor for silent high-level AF speed and precision

The autofocus drive system uses the VXD linear motor focus mechanism. The high-speed, high-precision AF enables the lens to respond to the creative intentions of the photographer by making focusing quick and definite, even with fast-aperture lenses, from the MOD to infinity. The lens provides excellent focus tracking of moving objects so that you never miss those important moments. Plus, the lens is extremely quiet, so it’s perfectly suited for both still and video shooting in conditions that demand silent operation.
