Owner reviews: Tamron 35 mm f/ 2.8 Adapt-A-Matic
- Low priced (around 30 euros)
- Good build quality
- Made of metal with rubber focusing ring (second version)
- Moderately fast f/2.8 aperture
- Smooth focusing ring
- Soft wide open in center, with very soft corners
- Washed out colors
- Bulky and heavy
This 35mm lens was meant for black and white photography according to the results I get from it, washed out colors, very soft corners at f/2.8 and some vignetting.
Improves a lot at f/5.6 but corners are still a bit soft may be due to field curvature.
Build quality is very good, all made of metal, a bit heavy and bulky. My copy corresponds to Tamron's second version with a rubber focusing ring instead of a metallic one.
Focusing ring is well damped and smooth, a pleasure to use.
