Tamron 35mm f/2.8 Di III OSD M1:2 Review

★★★★ 4.0
Verdict: The Tamron 35mm f/2.8 Di III OSD M1:2 lens delivers excellent image quality and an all-weather build at a very attractive price.
The Tamron 35mm f/2.8 Di III OSD M1:2 ($349) is a true budget lens for photographers who use Sony mirrorless camera systems. Despite slashing the price, Tamron doesn't cut many corners when it comes to optical quality, and includes dust and splash protection in its design. The autofocus system isn't as quick or quiet as pricier lenses, which does limit appeal for videography, but if you're more interested in still photography and don't want to spend too much, this 35mm might be just the lens you're looking for. Budget in Cost, Not Feel The Tamron 35mm f/2.8 Di III OSD M1:2 costs less than half as much as Sony's most affordable alternative, the $750 FE 35mm F1.8. The Tamron is a light (7.4 ounces), squat (2.5 by 2.9 inches, HD) lens with support for 67mm front filters. It includes a compact hood, along with front and rear caps. The optics are housed in a polycarbonate barrel that's definitely plastic, but a type that's of higher quality than the competing Rokinon 35mm F2.8 AF. ...
