Tamron SP lenses have been around for 40 years. To celebrate this anniversary, Tamron has decided to launch an “ultimate” 35mm lens for Nikon and Canon DSLRs. The SP 35mm f/1.4 Di USD is coming soon and it’s going to be “the finest lens in Tamron’s history.”
When buying a new lens, a common dilemma is whether to go for a native or a third-party lens. The third-party lenses are usually much cheaper, but how good are they? In this video, Jay P Morgan and Kenneth Merrill compare two standard E-mount zoom lenses for full frame Sony cameras: an $879 Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8 Di III RXD and a $2,198 Sony FE 24-70mm f/2.8 GM. How do they compare in terms of sharpness, image quality, and autofocus for both photo and video? Check out the video below for more details.
The Tamron 17-28mm f/2.8 Di III RXD for Sony E mount was rumoured yesterday to be announced today, and now that announcement has come. Tamron has today officially announced development of the new 17-28mm f/2.8 lens, along with two others destined for Nikon and Canon full frame DSLRs. The Tamron SP 35mm f/1.4 Di USD prime lens and Tamron 35-150mm f/2.8-4 Di VC OSD zoom.
Tamron are getting ready to announce a new 17-28mm f/2.8 Di III RXD lens for Sony FE, according to a post on Sony Alpha Rumors. While not quite as wide or as long, it should offer Sony shooters a less expensive alternative to the Sony 16-35mm f/2.8 GM lens for a short focal length zoom with a fast aperture.
Tamron has updated their list of Di and DI II series lenses confirmed to work with the Nikon Z6 and Z7 cameras. The firmware updates, which started to come in November 2018 had only been tested with the Nikon Z7 at the time, and Z6 compatibility was more of a “well, it should work” sort of thing.
Now, though, Tamron has tested and confirmed that the following six F mount lenses will work with the Nikon Z6 when used with the Nikon FTZ mount adapter if they’re running the latest firmware.
Tamron has introduced a new and improved version of their 15-30mm f/2.8 lens. The SP 15-30mm F/2.8 Di VC USD G2 promises a lot of improvements over its predecessor. Some of them include better overall image quality, as well as faster and more accurate AR and improved VC (vibration compensation). So, let’s jump in and see more details of the latest Tamron’s lens and what it has to offer.
The Tamron 70-210mm f/4 Di VC lens has had a lot of hype. Leaked in February, announced a day later, and subsequently reviews on its own, it’s seems to be quite a good lens. But how does it stand up against the Nikon 70-200mm f/4 VR and the brand new Canon 70-200mm f/4 IS II? And which should you buy?
That’s what this video from DPReview TV aims to find out. Chris and Jordan team up with photographer Kyle Marquardt to put them to the test. Which is going to be best for you will depend on your needs.
