Tamron has set the stage for yet another milestone in the realm of photography gear. Following the resounding success of its 28-75mm f/2.8 Di III VXD G2 lens for Sony E-mount cameras, the company has announced the imminent arrival of its Z-mount counterpart for Nikon Z system mirrorless cameras.


The 28-75mm f/2.8 G2 marks the latest addition to Tamron's esteemed lineup of lenses tailored for Nikon Z mirrorless cameras, joining the ranks of esteemed optics such as the 35-150mm f/2-2.8 Di III VXD and the 70-300mm f/4.5-6.3 Di III RXD. Boasting a compact yet robust build, this lens embodies the perfect balance between portability and exceptional image quality, catering to the needs of both enthusiasts and professionals alike.

One of the standout features of the 28-75mm f/2.8 G2 is its cutting-edge linear motor focus mechanism, the Voice-coil eXtreme-torque Drive (VXD), renowned for its swift, precise, and virtually silent autofocus performance. This ensures that photographers can effortlessly capture fleeting moments with utmost clarity and accuracy, even in challenging shooting conditions.


Furthermore, the lens's remarkable close-up capabilities, with a minimum focusing distance of just 0.18 meters (7.1 inches) at the wide end, and a maximum magnification ratio of 1:2.7, open up a world of creative possibilities, allowing users to explore intricate details with stunning clarity and depth.

In terms of optical construction, the 28-75mm f/2.8 G2 incorporates 17 elements in 15 groups, including two low dispersion (LD) and Glass Molded Aspherical (GM) elements, meticulously engineered to minimize optical aberrations and ensure consistently high image quality across the entire zoom range.

Comparatively, the Tamron Z-mount lens stands shoulder to shoulder with its Nikon counterpart, offering photographers a compelling alternative without compromising on performance or build quality.


With a length of just 119.8 millimeters (4.7 inches) and weighing in at 550 grams (19.4 ounces), the 28-75mm f/2.8 G2 strikes the perfect balance between compactness and functionality, making it an indispensable tool for photographers on the move.

With the imminent arrival of the Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8 Di III VXD G2 for Nikon Z, photographers now have a trio of formidable f/2.8 standard zoom lenses at their disposal, catering to a diverse range of shooting scenarios and preferences. Priced competitively at $999, this lens promises to democratize access to premium optical performance, empowering photographers to unleash their creativity without breaking the bank.

While rigorous testing will be required to ascertain the lens's performance in real-world scenarios, early indications suggest that the Tamron Z-mount variant is poised to uphold the stellar reputation established by its E-mount counterpart. If proven to be on par with expectations, it stands poised to become the go-to choice for photographers seeking an affordable yet uncompromising standard zoom lens for Nikon Z-mount cameras.
