Tamron SP 35mm F/1.4 Lens Review – A Perfectly Executed Prime Lens? – Photography Article

I’ve evaluated and reviewed quite a few lenses over the years – twenty-three to be exact. Throughout those reviews, I’ve been fortunate enough to encounter many that were good, a few that were great, and an oh-so limited few that were absolutely magic. Yet, I can honestly say that I have never experienced the overwhelmingly universal praise and excited electricity surrounding a freshly released lens as I have witnessed with the new Tamron SP 35mm F/1.4 Di USD (for Canon,…

Sony lenses are notoriously expensive, so it’s a welcome relief that third-party manufacturers have been making solid E-Mount lenses. The Tamron 17-28mm f/2.8 is one such lens. It is the highly anticipated follow-up to the Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8, which was announced in 2018 and is almost always on backorder due to its popularity. After testing the Tamron 17-28mm f/2.8, I have no doubt that this lens will be equally popular. Read on to find out why. The Tamron 17-28mm f/2.8…

A Prime Lens Photographer Tries Out Tamron f/2.8 Zoom Lenses – Photography Article

Being in the photography game over 12 years has given me some fixed routines that are hard to break. Routines like focusing solely on prime lenses. In the last few years I’ve been carrying 20mm, 35mm, 85mm, and 200mm fixed focal length lenses on my camera bag while occasionally wondering if the grass looks greener on the flexible focal length side. Spectacular clouds and the calm sea in the morning. Tamron 28-75mm @28mm, f/9, ISO 100, 6-25s, ND filter. 4…

Roger Cicala at LensRentals is on a quest. A quest to MTF everything that moves… or in this case zooms. After putting off zoom lens comparisons as long as possible, Roger finally bit the bullet and published his 70-200mm f/2.8 MTF chart comparison. What’s an MTF Chart?

The Tamron 17-28mm f/2.8 Di III RXD has only been available for pre-order one week, but already Tamron has had to issue an apology about availability. Apparently demand for the new Sony E-Mount lens has been so high that even those who have already placed an order might have to wait a little while longer to receive their unit—to say nothing of new orders. The apology was published by Tamron Japan, who made it pretty clear that not all pre-orders…
