Tamron Wins Prestigious TIPA 2016 Awards
Check this out: Tamron’s 35mm just won best DSLR Prime Lens, and their new 18-200 VC won Best Entry Level DSLR Lens from TIPA (Technical Image Press Awards) for 2016! That’s three years in a row that Tamron has taken a prestigious award from TIPA.
The SP 35mm f/1.8
High Performance at F/1.8 Full Aperture
The open aperture is set to F/1.8 with optimized critical properties at a higher level: superb optical performance coupled with a VC system, a shorter MOD, and a well-balanced form factor. Rigorous simulation processes performed throughout the design phase are materialized in distinguished resolving power and beautifully-tuned background blur, a prominent feature to a fast-aperture, full-frame compliant optic.
Closest Focusing Distance in its Class
The SP 35mm offers best-in-class close focusing, 0.2m. A floating system design feature seamlessly optimizes image quality by shifting elements relative to the focus group in close shooting situations. Of the new SP series lenses, the 35mm lens offers unique opportunities enabling shooting like a wide-angle macro lens.
VC (Vibration Compensation) Integration, Setting Itself Apart
VC deployed on fast-aperture lenses dramatically enhances freedom of hand-held shooting under lime light or dim room light conditions by eliminating minute camera shake. In particular, cameras with high-pixel density imagers tend to pick up subtle vibrations, resulting in degradation of image quality. VC is an excellent attribute to acquire inherent high-fidelity images.
The SP 35mm f/1.8 is available in Canon and Nikon mounts for only $599.99.
