Recently, Tamron published a teaser video for four new lenses they planned to announce at some point in October. It was reported that they were to be a 70-180mm f/2.8 zoom along with 20mm f/2.8, 24mm f/2.8 and 35mm f/2.8 primes. Now, it seems Sony Alpha Rumors has potential release dates for all four lenses. Or at least, release years.
Tamron is about to announce as many as four new lenses, according to a recently published teaser video. Although there isn’t too much information, the users have their own predictions and hopes for the upcoming lenses.
A few days ago, the $900 Tamron 17-28mm f/2.8 Di III RXD for Sony FE was officially released for preorders. The new lens seems to have got many Sony users excited. So excited, that Tamron can’t keep up with their demands, so the lens won’t be shipped on the scheduled 25 July to everyone who preorders it.
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.
