Tamron


June 29, 2019 Tamron 35-150mm F2.8-4 VC OSD Gallery

When Tamron first announced the Tamron 35-150mm F2.8-4 VC OSD, I was first nonplussed (odd focal range), then disappointed that it was not for Sony, but then intrigued as I thought about the potential of such a lens for shooting events, weddings, or even for travel.  It essentially combines the “meat” of a 24-70 [Read more...]

November 21, 2018 Tamron 17-35mm F2.8-4 OSD (A037) Review

There have been a variety of high end wide-angle zooms and primes released over the past 4-5 years, but very few in an important demographic – the affordable end of the full frame spectrum.  Tamron is looking to address that with their new 17-35mm F2.8-4 Di OSD lens.  It sports a nicely weather-sealed body in [&h [Read more...]

November 14, 2018 Tamron SP 15-30mm F2.8 VC G2 (A041) Review

The Tamron SP 15-30mm f/2.8 Di VC USD entered my collection a few months after my review of the lens in February 2015.  It resonated to me as a lens that, while large and heavy, really delivered a fantastic optical performance.  It was also the only wide angle zoom at the time to hit 15mm […] [Read more...]

June 29, 2018 Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8 RXD (A036) Review

Sony has been vying to steal some market share from Canon and Nikon for some time, but, while their innovation and impressive spec lists have been widely applauded, the Sony E mount has lacked a competitive lens selection. In some ways that remains true (particularly in the telephoto department), but there has been a significant [Read more...]

June 21, 2018 Tamron 70-210mm f/4 VC USD Review (A034)

See the autofocus section for some fresh observations from October 2018 after firmware update 2.0. In the past two years the “third party” lensmakers have really been taking it to the “first party” lensmakers (Canon and Nikon). Both Tamron and Sigma had a renaissance around six-seven years ago where they shifted from mak [Read more...]

May 30, 2018 Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8 RXD (A036) Image Gallery

It was with great excitement that I saw Tamron’s announcement in February at the WPPI Conference of an all-new lens designed from the ground up for Sony FE.  The new Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8 Di III RXD (A036) provides something that the Sony platform has had few of – solid alternatives to the expensive premium Sony [Read more...]
