Tamron makes some fantastically affordable yet high-quality lenses, but perhaps no lens in their lineup offers more bang for the buck than the 35mm f/2.8 Di III OSD M 1:2, which comes in at just $199. Despite that exceedingly modest price, the 35mm f/2.8 is a particularly versatile lens, and this great video review takes a look at the sort of performance and image quality you can expect from it in practice.
Coming to you from Christopher Frost, this great video review takes a look at the Tamron 35mm f/2.8 Di III OSD M 1:2 lens. At just $199, the 35mm f/2.8 is remarkably affordable, but it still offers a lot of versatility in its rather portable 7.4 oz (210 g) package. Most notable is its 1:2 macro capability, but beyond that, it also comes with a Low Dispersion element for reduced chromatic aberrations and increased clarity, a molded glass aspherical element for reduced distortion and increased sharpness, Broad-Band Anti-Reflection for reduced flares and ghosting and deeper contrast, moisture-resistant construction, and a rounded seven-blade diaphragm for smoother bokeh. Altogether, it looks like quite a nice lens for not a lot of money. Check out the video above for Frost’s full thoughts on the lens.
