In September 2021, Tamron announced their 35-150mm f/2-2.8 DI III VXD lens for Sony FE. It was an odd focal length range and even odder that it had a variable aperture. Well, now, Samyang’s announced the Samyang AF 35-150mm f/2-2.8 lens for Sony FE mount, and it seems to be quite a bit cheaper. Samyang claims their optical formula, which is different to the Tamron, provides superior sharpness right to the edge.
Photographer and YouTuber Tom Calton has had his hands on one for a little and has posted a review of the new Samyang, comparing it to the Tamron. It’s a good, in-depth comparison between the two and looks at a lot of different features. It’s clear that the design of the Samyang is heavily inspired by the Tamron, but it does have some unique features.
