The TAMRON SP 35mm F1.8 Di VC USD is a wide angle prime lens for 35mm SLR cameras.
Summary from a test in a German photo magazin in 2015
- Resolution: For these very high light intensity, the lens has normal limitations at full aperture, but good values at f /1.8, dimmed by three notches very good to excellent. In APS/C from f4.5 very good.
- Vignetting: remarkably well corrected. At f1.8 and full format relatively well but also visible in APS; dimmed very good.
- Distortion: in full format a bit, but barely visible at APS/C
- excellent metal/plastic material, metal bayonet with rubber lip.
- Big focusing ring, excellent to use. Close focusing excellent.
- Fixed filter mount.
- Straylight protection very good.
- Image Stabilizer.
By using the TAMRON TAP-in Console the firmware of the lens can be updated, it is possible to adjust the position of the auto focus and the mechanical structure can be configured according to personal preferences.
