Tamron


September 1, 2019 Tamron SP 35mm F1.4 (F045) Image Gallery

Tamron has pulled out the stops for its 40th anniversary of their SP brand (Super Performance).  The Tamron SP 35mm F1.4 Di USD (F045) is (according to them), the finest optical instrument that they have made.  It certainly is a beautifully made, beautifully performing lens, and it is extremely well priced compared to [Read more...]

July 27, 2019 Tamron 17-28mm F2.8 RXD (A046) Image Gallery

Tamron released their new 28-78mm F2.8 RXD lens for Sony full frame mirrorless (FE) last year to great fanfare, as it provided a legitimate alternative to the very large and very expensive Sony 24-70mm F2.8 G Master lens.  The 28-75 RXD went on to be the best selling lens of the year in its first […] [Read more...]

July 26, 2019 Tamron 35-150mm F2.8-4 VC OSD (A043) Review

When Tamron announced the 17-35mm F2.8-4 OSD last year, I was initially nonplussed. I was surprised to see them releasing a lens without VC (which has become a mainstay on Tamron lenses), a lens with a less sophisticated autofocus system, and delivering such a lens in the Canon EF/Nikon F mount where they already have […] [Read more...]

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...]
