The SP 35mm f/1.4 Di USD (F045) is getting a lot of positive reviews, and this on is no exception. Tamron itself calls it the “finest lens” in their history.
From ePHOTOzine’s conclusion:
The performance is excellent, the handling is excellent and this puts the Tamron on a par with the best alternative 35mm f/1.4 lenses, and, it must be said, at an attractive price. Yes, it is still expensive, but that is the price we have to pay for such high quality.
The only question is whether or not the photographer finds 35mm to be the right focal length on full frame. For some it may fall between being truly wide angle and being long enough for more flattering portraits. For others it will be the perfect standard lens, perhaps especially for those involved with classic street photography or small group portraits.
If the specification is right though, then this lens hits the spot and yet again Tamron have that coveted accolade and another Editor’s Choice. Is this Tamron’s best ever lens? Frankly, there have been quite a few that could vie for that position, but one thing is certain, that the new Tamron SP 35mm f/1.4 Di USD lens is right at the top of Tamron’s game.Read the review…
