Tamron SP 35mm f/1.4 Di USD Overview

Complementing the optics, a USD motor and Dynamic Rolling-cam mechanism are also employed to ensure quick, quiet autofocus performance along with seamless full-time manual focus override. Additionally, the lens features a moisture-resistant construction along with a front fluorine coating to support working in harsh weather conditions.

Wide-angle prime is designed for FX-format Nikon F-mount cameras, however can also be used with DX models where it provides a 52.5mm equivalent focal length.
Fast f/1.4 maximum aperture suits working in low-light conditions and also affords extensive control over depth of field for isolating subjects using selective focus techniques.
Four low dispersion elements are featured and greatly limit color fringing and chromatic aberrations in order to achieve higher clarity and color fidelity throughout the aperture range.
Three glass-molded aspherical elements are used to suppress distortion and spherical aberrations, and contribute to accurate rendering and high sharpness.
Second generation BBAR-G2 coating has been applied to individual elements and provides refined correction and control over ghosting and lens flare for greatly improved contrast and color accuracy when working in backlit conditions.
An Ultrasonic Silent Drive autofocus motor delivers quick and precise focusing performance and a Dynamic Rolling-cam mechanism also contributes to swift focusing movement of the large f/1.4 optical system. This motor also affords full-time manual focus control, and it is possible to focus on subjects as close as 11.8" away at a 1:5 maximum magnification ratio.
A moisture-resistant construction benefits this lens' use in inclement conditions, and a fluorine coating has also been applied to the front lens element to protect against dust, dirt, and smearing.
Rounded nine-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality.
Compatible with optional TAP-in Console for fine-tuning select focusing adjustments and for updating lens firmware.

It's unfortunate that the rendition on this lens is like no other because I really didn't want to carry this heavy thing around. But it really is that good!

Hesitant buy, but with Canon so backordered...

I really wanted to be patient and wait for the Canon 35mm f1.4. The reviews I had seen made me feel like it was worth the price difference and I've been hesitant to stray to a 3rd party lens. But when 2-4 weeks of backorder turned into months with no end in sight, I gave in and decided to try out the Tamron. I am very, very pleased with it. Crisp, clear pictures, and super solid! May even give my Canon 50mm a run for its money. So glad I took a chance on this one!

Just a bit about my use case. I am a hobbyist. I have been a prime shooter since I moved past the kit lens I got with my first dslr. Over the years I have grown to love the 35mm focal length. I knew I would never drop almost 2k on the Canon 1.4 but I was always intrigued by them. I liked my Canon f2 is usm but I wanted more. So I pulled the trigger on the Tamron. It gets nothing but rave reviews by the experts and everything they say is true. It is sharper throughout the aperture range by far when compared to my Canon. It is amazingly sharp and clear. The colors render wonderfully. The build is solid and sturdy. And I absolutely love weather sealing. Living in the desert southwest means nonstop dust. It is heavy but not as large as I thought it would be. Would buy it again. Feel like I own a masterpiece of a 35mm prime now. Going to really enjoy continuing to practice the art of photography with it.

Best prime lens ever

I was absolutely astounded with the quality and feel of this lens the moment I took it out of the box. I am primarily using this lens for car photography since it is a large hobby of mine. I took a few photos of my dog with the lens paired with my new Nikon D610 and I was amazed by the buttery smooth bokeh, sharpness, and snappy autofocus. The 1st reason I decided to get this lens is because I had heard multiple good things about it from other photographers that shoot similar objects to me and haven't heard a bad thing about. The 2nd reason I got this lens is because since I was buying an older used full frame (upgrading from Nikon D3500 to D610) I decided to go all in on the lens and I have no regrets or complaints. B&H of course did an amazing job as usual with shipping and even came a day earlier than it was expected to arrive!

Did any one find a large difference between 1.8 and 1.4. Do you shoot that open?
Asked by: Jessica
I use both the 1.8, and the 1.4, weddings, my wife's the second shooter and uses the 1.8. I find the 1.4 to be sharper than the 1.8. Faster focus. The 1.4 is a much better lens - not that the 1.8's bad, the 1.4 is just that good. It's rare that I shoot either wide open so the 1.4 vs 1.8 aperture isn't that much of an advantage to me.

Do the owners of this lens find that it needs fine tuning using the Tamron Tap-in Console?

Yes, mine does. I have ordered the TAP in console and am waiting for it. Until it arrives, I will be using live view, as it is very noticeable. I imagine every lens is going to be different, especially when combined with different camera tolerances.

Unfortunately, at this time, the Tamron SP 35mm f/1.4 Di USD Lens for Nikon F is not compatible for use with the Nikon FTZ Lens Mount Adapter.
