Tamron has a trio of Sony E fit, full-frame prime wide-angle lenses that are small, light and very reasonably priced. A matching set comprising 20mm f/2.8 Di III OSD, 24mm f/2.8 Di III OSD and 35mm f/2.8 Di III OSD has to be an exciting proposition. Add to this a macro close focus magnification of half life-size and things start to look very interesting indeed. First off, let's look at the 20mm f/2.8 lens, coupled with the 42MP Sony A7R III camera body, and see what it can do.

Tamron recently announced three new wide-angle primes for Sony full-frame E-mount cameras, with 20mm, 24mm and 35mm focal lengths. All share a common aperture rating of f/2.8 and a filter size of 67mm. The primes have a tough act to follow, as we’ve recently been hugely impressed with the Tamron 17-28mm and 28-75mm constant-aperture f/2.8 zooms. Keeping in step, this 20mm lens is very lightweight in build and price tag, but goes large on performance with sumptuous image quality.

The Tamron 20 mm f/2.8 Di III OSD M1:2 is a great wide angle for the Sony cameras and is perhaps the most attractive of the three new Tamron wide angles. For a 20 mm, the dimensions are not too big, and the weight is nice and low. The optical performance is good and will also satisfy demanding users. The Tamron 20 mm f/2.8 Di III OSD M1:2 performs excellently for all the things for which you would like to use a wide angle: landscapes, travel and documentary photography and interiors and architectural photography. Thanks to all the seals on the lens, you can use it under all circumstances. Considering the quality and the possibilities, the price that Tamron asks for this 20 mm is very attractive.
