Capture beautiful images in amazing high resolution
The world's first F2 all-in-one full-frame mirrorless zoom lens
The TAMRON 35-150mm F/2-2.8 Di III VXD (Model A058) is a high-resolution travel zoom lens that covers everything from the 35mm wide-angle to the 150mm telephoto focal length. It’s the first zoom lens with an aperture of F2 at the wide-angle end for Sony full-frame mirrorless cameras. This new zoom enables the photography of beautiful natural landscapes, urban scenery, impressive building exteriors, portraits, casual snapshots and more while traveling, all without changing lenses. And for sharp, in-focus images it utilizes the linear motor focus mechanism VXD2, thereby achieving high speed, high precision autofocusing. The 35-150mm F2-2.8 enables photographers to shoot at the angles-of-view commonly used when creating art while traveling, empowering you to clearly capture the many scenes as you envision them with overwhelming resolving power and magnificent overall performance.
Capture stunning close-up images easily
At the 35mm wide-angle end, the MOD (Minimum Object Distance) is 0.33m (13 in), producing a maximum magnification ratio of 1:5.7. In addition to boldly accentuating the subject, you can make it stand out by creating a beautifully blurred background utilizing the fast F2-2.8 maximum aperture. You can also take unique, one-of-a-kind photos, including overhead shots of food while traveling, and captivating close-up photography.
New lens design improves both operation and ergonomics
The Model A058 incorporates a new design that becomes the hallmark of TAMRON lenses introduced in the future. Grip texture has been improved by redesigning the striped pattern on the rubber of focusing and zoom rings. The lens has been refined for smoother operation. The surface of the lens exterior is shiny black, much glossier than previous models. TAMRON considered customer feedback and reviewed each part and component of the lens down to the finest details.
Capture everything from wide-angle to telephoto with a single lens
This powerful zoom lens covers everything from the 35mm wide-angle to 150mm telephoto, including all the common focal lengths that are already familiar to you, giving you more creative options than ever before. At the 150mm telephoto end, this zoom is a fast F2.8, so you can make stunning images by intentionally limiting depth-of-field and leveraging beautiful bokeh. Seamlessly take photos without switching lenses. Change to the 85mm semi-telephoto focal length for a portrait, focus on a faraway subject at 150mm, and make full use of the 35mm and 50mm ranges for street, interior and other travel images. Change composition without changing your distance from the subject (a key ingredient of creative photography!).
