Versatile All-in-one Zoom Lens
Having an outstanding lens lineup, Tamron has created another versatile lens which is a fast-aperture zoom lens ideal for the creation of art while travelling to take photos. The Tamron 35-150 mm f/2-2.8 Di III VXD Sony E-Mount is a high-resolution travel zoom lens that covers everything from the 35mm wide-angle to the 150mm telephoto focal length, the first zoom lens achieving an aperture of F2 at the wide-angle in a Sony full-frame mirrorless lens. This versatile all-in-one zoom enables photography of beautiful natural scenery, urban landscapes, impressive buildings, interiors, night views and more while travelling, without having to change lenses—or changing your distance from the subject when composing. It has a groundbreaking fast-aperture and utilizes the linear motor focus mechanism VXD (Voice-coil Extreme-torque Drive), thereby achieving high speed, high precision autofocusing.
The Tamron 35-150 mm f/2-2.8 Di III VXD Sony E-Mount features an optimal combination of four LD (Low Dispersion) lens elements that subdue aberrations and three extraordinary GM (Glass Molded Aspherical) lens elements. Together they assure high optical performance that enhances your ability to capture all the incredible scenery you encounter while travelling. Tamron has achieved a maximum aperture of F2 at the wide-angle end and F2.8 at the telephoto end, enabling you to achieve beautiful, soft bokeh across the entire zoom range. The lens also makes it possible to capture subjects clearly in more situations. The lens's fast maximum aperture helps you control camera movement by permitting a higher shutter speed, or when trying to reduce noise by choosing a low ISO.
The all-new Tamron 35-150 mm f/2-2.8 Di III VXD Sony E-Mount boasts the ability to take close-up photographs extremely close to the subject. At the 35mm wide-angle end, the MOD is 0.33m (13 in), achieving a maximum magnification ratio of 1:5.7. To further accentuate the subject and separate it visually from its surroundings you can create a greatly blurred background using the large F2-2.8 maximum aperture. You can also take unique and impressive photos, including overhead shots of food and close-ups of parts of small objects, flowers, or other subject details.
