    Sign in to follow this  

    Together with the premiere of Tamron 35-150mm f/2.8-4 and 17-28mm f/2.8 III, the company has announced the lens which is supposed to be the “embodiment of the whole existing experience of the producer with regard to the optical production”. On 3rd June, the producer presented its latest baby, namely Tamron SP 35 mm f/1.4 Di USD.

    Tamron SP 35mm f/1.4 Di USD consists of 14 elements placed in 10 groups. Among them, there are 3 LD (Low Dispersion) lenses and 3 made of GM (Glass Molded Aspherical), which are to effectively eliminate chromatic aberration which is a common problem of bright lenses. A new-generation coating, BBAR has also been used in the lens.

    The lens is to provide uncompromising resolution within the whole frame, irrespective of the selected aperture. The 9-blade aperture with the nominal hole of f/1.4 is responsible for the image plasticity. The USD (Ultrasonic Silent Drive) is responsible for quick and precise work.

    Tamron SP 35mm f/1.4 Di USD has been, of course, sealed. Besides that, the front lens possesses a fluorite coating based on a newly-developed fluorine compound with high properties which repel water and oil. Thanks to this, the surface of the lens is easier to clean and it is less susceptible to dirt and humidity. The lens also enables screwing the filters with the diameter of 72mm, similarly to other fixed lenses of the series.

    Tamron SP 35mm f/1.4 Di USD will be available with the Nikon F and Canon EF mounts – respectively, at the end of June and at the end of July, for $899.

      The offer of Tamron’s lenses is continuously expanding. The producer takes into account the customers’ expectations and it will introduce 3 new lenses on the market: 35-150mm f/2.8-4, 35mm f/1.4 and 17-28mm f/2.8 III in the coming months. The offer will be targeted at both the users of reflex and mirrorless cameras.  
      Tamron 17-28mm f/2.8 III RXD
      The first from the lenses described today is dedicated for use with mirrorless Sony cameras. 28-75mm f/2.8 Di III RXD will enable taking sharp photographs from the distance of 19cm. The RXD stepper motor is to ensure quick and silent AF work (also during film-making). The lens is a budget alternative for systemic zooms.

      Tamron SP 35mm f/1.4 Di USD
      The SP 35mm f/1.4 Di USD lens is targeted at more advanced users of Tamron reflex cameras. The lens is to be characterized by perfect resolution, quick AF and resistant body construction. The new structure is to embody the producer’s experience gathered during the 40-year production of this series of lenses.

      The lens, referred to by the producer as a “portrait zoom”, will probably not be used only within this narrow field, but it will also fulfil its role as a travel lens. The optical system will consist of aspherical and low-dispersion lenses, which is to ensure very good image quality within the whole range of focal lengths. It will be equipped with the optical stabilization system.

      The lenses are to appear on sale in the middle of the year. Their prices are not known yet.  
      Yongnuo is not wasting time - the YN 35mm lens described today is the fourth lens of the producer about which we are informing this year.  The main properties of  the lens concern the complex optical system with the advanced defect correction, good resolution,  effective autofocus and resistant body. This bright full-frame camera may become an interesting proposition for the fans of street, reportage or even portrait photography.
      The optical system of the lens is based on 11 elements placed in 9 groups - among them we will find two aspherical lenses and two low-dispersion ones. Yet another procedure used by the producer in order to minimize the appearance of the light flares and light leaks is covering the lenses with several anti-reflective coatings. The aperture of the lens consists of 7 blades and its nominal hole is f/1.4. The minimum focus distance is 35cm.

      The effective DC Motor is responsible for the speed of work of the autofocus. Thanks to it, the AF is to be quick, precise and it should work well even in the "Live View" mode. On the body of the lens, we will find a frame which facilitates manual focusing and which shows the scale of the hyperfocal distance. Thanks to the USB connection, it will be possible to update the lens' software. 

      2). Yongnuo YN 35mm f/1.4
      Yongnuo YN 35mm f/1.4 is equipped with gold-plated contacts and the metal mount has been covered with the chrome layer. All of this is supposed to positively influence electrical conductivity and general durability of the lens. The device has the dimensions of 82 × 111mm and it weighs 810g.
      The detailed specification of the lens is not known yet. Unfortunately, we also don't know when YN 35mm f/1.4 will appear on sale and how much it will cost.
      Samyang AF 35mm f/1.4 FE is a proof that the company has treated the development of the series of lenses with autofocus for full-frame Sony E system very seriously. Three lenses are already available on the market, and the next one has just joined them. Similarly to the previous ones, it has been designed having in mind both enthusiasts and professional photographers, who do not want to spend fortune on the systemic Sony lenses.

      The optical system consisting of 11 elements placed in 9 groups is responsible for image quality. Among the elements, we can find 2 aspherical lenses and 2 high-refractive ones. Some of the lenses are covered with Ultra Multi Coating, which minimizes the emergence of light leaks and lens flares. The used optical system and 9-blade aperture are to generate unique image plasticity with soft blurrings and pleasant bokeh effect.

      1). Samyang AF 35mm f/1.4 FE
      The lens is also equipped with an improved autofocus system – LSM (Linear Super sonic Motor), which is supposed to be quieter, faster and more precise. It is also supposed to work in harder lighting conditions.

      The lens weights 645g and possibly does not have any sealings.

      2). Samyang AF 35mm f/1.4 FE
      New Samyang, thanks to its minimalist design, is very similar to Sony lenses and it will certainly cooperate with full-frame mirrorless cameras of the producer.

      We don’t know the exact price of the lens yet, but we can expect it to be below $600, so around $1000 less than Sony Distagon T* FE 35mm f/1.40 ZA.
