Tamron has officially announced that its 'world-first' lens for full-frame Sony E-mount mirrorless, Tamron 17-50mm f/4 Di III VXD, will be released next month, October 2023. The lens was announced as being in development last month, but now we have the full specifications and price. 

The lens boasts an impressive focal range, running from ultra wide-angle at 17mm to a standard zoom length of 50mm, making it a 'world-first' for Sony E-mount users. The dynamic focal range enables great versatility for still and video purposes as well as reduces the need to swap lenses, making it an ideal walk-around lens. With a range that covers the most popular prime focal lengths of 24mm, 35mm, and 50mm, this lens offers a convenient and cost-saving alternative.
