Tamron reveals final details of 35-150mm f / 2-2.8 and 28-75mm f / 2.8


Tamron has announced final pricing and availability details for the 35-150mm f / 2-2.8 Di III VXD and 28-75mm f / 2.8 Di III VXD G2. Both lenses will arrive this fall for Sony E-mount.

The 35-150mm f / 2-2.8 Di III VXD lens is comprised of 21 elements divided into 15 groups, including four low dispersion aspherical elements and three glass molded aspherical elements designed to provide superior optical performance across the range zoom. Tamron says that even when attached to high-resolution cameras, the lens delivers consistently high image quality around the edges of the frame. The lens also reduces “onion ring bokeh”, a feature often highlighted in Sony G Master lenses.

Tamron says the 35-150mm f / 2-2.8 was designed to cover a wide-angle focal range through the telephoto lens without giving up too much light collecting ability. As such, it is the world’s first mirrorless zoom lens with a large aperture maximum aperture of f / 2. Designed specifically for travel photographers, Tamron says this lens would allow them to take a range of photos well, from sunrise and sunset, to distinctive exterior buildings and interiors like restaurants, and twilight photos and by night.

The lens has custom switch settings that allow you to adjust two focus positions and quickly move the lens between each. It also allows the photographer to set the desired focus position and move the focus to the registered point with a single press of the focus adjustment button. The lens also supports the ability to switch the focus ring from focus adjustment to aperture adjustment, and custom functions can be assigned from the camera body.

The lens autofocus system is Tamron’s VXD linear focusing mechanism that provides high-speed, high-precision focusing with minimal noise.

Below are some sample images provided by Tamron, photographed by Shinya Takahashi with the Sony Alpha 7R IV:

The 35-150mm f / 2-2.8 Di III VXD is expected to be available for Sony E-mount cameras on October 28 for $ 1,899.

Successor to the 28-75mm f / 2.8 Di III RXD, the 28-75mm f / 2.8 Di III VXD G2 retains the compact size of its predecessor while incorporating a new optical construction based on a design it claims was redesigned to improve imaging performance and is compatible with the latest models of digital cameras which have increased resolution.

The lens uses a new design that the company says will become the hallmark of future Tamron lenses. Changes to the texture of the zoom ring surface and focus ring surface improve grip and improve ease of use. The surface of the outside of the lens is a glossy black, which is much brighter than previous models. Improved abrasion resistance makes the lens harder to scratch and resists fingerprints. In addition, some internal parts have been improved. The resistance and torque of the zoom ring have been adjusted to facilitate smoother and more precise operation. Tamron says these advancements translate into smoother overall operability.

This new version of the lens is made up of 17 elements divided into 15 groups and uses what Tamron says are two “optimally” glass-molded, low dispersion aspherical elements designed to suppress optical aberrations to the “maximum possible degree.” . Tamron says the result is a lens that dramatically improved image quality and delivers high-resolution performance across the zoom range and edge-to-edge quality.

The lens uses Tamron’s VXD linear focusing mechanism for high-speed, precise and quiet autofocus performance that is twice as fast as its predecessor.
