Tamron 35-150 f/2.8-4 Price announced

New Tamron 35-150 f/2.8-4 : Price and Availability

Last winter, Tamron announced the development of a high resolution 35-150 f/2.8-4 zoom lens for Canon EF and Nikon F, and today, pricing has been announced: $799. The lens will compete with the popular 24-105 f/4 lenses for Canon and Nikon, offering an increased telephoto range portrait photographers, while retaining the 35mm focal length that has become so popular for street photography and general shooting (and to compliment Tamron’s 17-35mm F/2.8-4 Di OSD lens).

And more importantly, the lens provides a full extra f-stop of light compared to its 24-105mm counterparts… at least, at the wide end. The “VC” system provides an additional 5 stops of shake reduction, according to CIPA standards. The compact lens is just under 5 inches long but weighs 1.75lbs (790g).

The lens has been designed with not just with convenience in mind; Tamron claims that its resolution will be best-in-class, suitable for cameras using 50 megapixel sensors or more, and considering the modest zoom range and high quality of Tamron’s recent optics, that should not be a stretch.

Availability

For Nikon DSLR shooters, the lens will be available in F-mount on May 23rd. Canon EF shooters will have to wait until June 6th. At $799, the price is within a few dollars of the price of Sigma’s 24-105 f/4 OS ART, and $300 less than Canon’s 24-105 f/4L IS II, at $1100.

I have been using this lens for about 3 weeks now and it completely took me by surprise, the optical quality is superb and even more surprising throughout the full range, pin sharp even at 150mm.
I am now using it with the also superb Tamron 17-35 2.8-4 DI OSD on my Nikon D850, the pair together make a lovely lightweight pairing for my Landscape work.
Optically they completely blew away my Nikon 16-35 lens and the 35-150 I actually find sharper than the Tamron 24-70 2.8 G2!.

Hi Matthew,
Look forward to what you think of the new lens, just had a couple of 36×24 inch prints back and they look excellent edge to edge. I ran a side by side with my Nikon 70-200 2.8 and amazingly it either kept up or exceeded the quality!

Cheers Matthew, I think it will surprise you.

A pretty interesting lens offering from Tamron… It also looks as though they’ve set up a new and rather attractive lens trinity, with the 17-35mm, this 35-150mm, and their 150-600mm G2.

i guess that’s a typo of the focal length range. it should be 35mm-150mm.
