Excerpt from the Award Citation of the EISA Jury:
EISA LENS OF THE YEAR 2021-2022: 17-70mm F/2.8 Di III-A VC RXD (Model B070)
For enthusiast photographers who use Sony cameras with APS-C sensors and are in search of a high-quality zoom, this might be the perfect choice. It offers a uniquely useful combination of a large maximum aperture and a broad 26-105mm full-frame equivalent focal length range, without compromising on optical quality. The lens is weather-sealed to match the higher-end Alpha 6000-series models, while its effective optical stabilisation allows handheld shooting at slow shutter speeds without blurring due to camera shake. In addition, the autofocus is quiet and accurate while being fully compatible with features such as Eye AF. Overall, it’s a great choice for everyday shooting.
EISA WIDEANGLE ZOOM LENS (APS-C) 2021-2022: 11-20mm F/2.8 Di III-A RXD (Model B060)
Designed for use with Sony E-mount cameras, this is the world’s first ultra-wideangle zoom lens for APS-C mirrorless to boast a fast maximum aperture of f/2.8. It is both compact and lightweight yet gives top-quality results. Its closest focusing distance is only 15cm at the shortest focal length, making it ideal for close-up shooting. The RXD autofocus motor is completely silent and focuses precisely and quickly on any subject, which is especially important for video recording. As a result, it’s the perfect choice for shooting with extraordinary viewing angles and striking perspectives.
EISA TELEPHOTO ZOOM LENS 2021-2022: 150-500mm F/5-6.7 Di III VC VXD (Model A057)
Tamron’s ultra-telephoto zoom for Sony E-mount provides a focal length range that is ideal for wildlife, sports and action photography in an impressively compact design. It also offers a minimum focus distance of 60cm at the 150mm position, providing a maximum magnification of 1:3.1 for close-up work. The Broad-Band Anti-Reflection coating suppresses ghosting and flare, while the optics are protected by the moisture-resistant construction along with a fluorine coating on the front element. This is the first Tamron lens for full-frame mirrorless cameras to feature optical image stabilisation, enabling sharp handheld ultra-telephoto shooting.
