A Fine Lens At A Modest Price

I have a 20MM lens that I discovered is just too wide. This lens finds the Goldilocks spot between wide enough but not too wide. Excellent for landscape (as you would expect) and works well for indoor architecture and family group shots. Has plastic body but that means that it is more light weight than you would expect and has otherwise good build quality. I give it a Two Thumbs Up.

I've used it twice so far. I recommend this lens for its size and reduced weight. Sharp images, albeit with large barrel distortion that can be corrected in editing. As a result, it was worth the investment.

Nice focal length for my sony apsc becomes a general street photography lens. Not too wide at 36mm equivalent.

I originally purchased a Rokinon 24mm from B&H but found the focusing slow and not terribly accurate. I was advised by the B&H tech advisor that I'd probably find the Tamron more to my liking and it was like night and day. I was so surprised at the difference. In comparison, the only advantage in the Rokinon was the weight. The Tamron is a bit heavier but the macro capability and the sharp images make this a terrific purchase.

This lens is very sharp wide open with little perceptible fall off in the corners, and it produces images that are beautiful in appearance. I'm planning to buy the 35mm lens in the same series.

Great Lens

I really enjoy this lens. It is light to carry and I have found this to be an excellent lens. The quality of the photos are sharp. I like the fact you can get up very close to your subject if you want (about 5 inches) and the background is a nice soft blur so your subject really pops. I use this lens on a Sony A6000 so the field of view is 36mm which is great for street photography and use as a walk around lens. It is a versatile lens that I allows me to get a variety of photos when walking around. Highly recommend this lens.

Purchased this as a fast prime for slipping into a sling pack for around town adventures. Serves that purpose wonderfully. Durability to be determined as this will see a lot of service.

I plan to used this lens the on a7 II. Is this lens sharper than Sony FE 28-70mm F3.5-5.6 OSS Lens? Because I'm very disappointed with my kit lens not being sharp.
Asked by: Kyle
Unfortunately, I have not seen a comprehensive lens comparison test between the Tamron 24mm f/2.8 Di III OSD M 1:2 Lens for Sony E and the Sony FE 28-70mm f/3.5-5.6 OSS Lens. However, that being said, prime (single focal length) lenses are more often sharper than their zoom counterparts. While they do not always tell the entire picture, viewing each lens' MTF chart, the Tamron lens does appear to have higher resolution and contrast performance, so I do feel it would be the sharper of the two lenses.

No. This is a 24mm f/2.8, whereas the one you linked is a 20mm f/2.8. The 20mm has a wider angle field-of-view.
