Tamron SP 35mm f/1.8 Di VC and SP 45mm f/1.8 Di VC video review

Tamron’s new primes captured a lot of attention since they were announced. For a good reason. The SP 35mm f/1.8 Di VC USD and the SP 45mm f/1.8 Di VC USD are affordable, and have weather sealing and image stabilisation. That’s a lot of bang for $599.

In the video above, photographer Dustin Abbott takes a close look at the build quality of the new Tamron primes, the SP 35mm f/1.8 Di VC USD and the SP 45mm f/1.8 Di VC USD, and compares the them with their main competitors. Dustin Abbott posted also an image gallery on his blog.

In the video below, he is examining Tamron’s claims about the lenses’ performance. Do the lenses stand up in real world shooting? Resolution, image stabilization, flare resistance, close focus performance, chromatic aberration control, and autofocus are tested.
