A favored focal length for everything from street photography to portraiture, the 35mm f/2.8 Di III OSD M 1:2 from Tamron is a sleek and lightweight take on one of the most popular and beloved focal lengths around. Designed for full-frame Sony E-mount mirrorless cameras, this wide-angle prime is distinguished by its f/2.8 design that strikes a balance between speed and a compact design, making for a highly portable lens for use in a variety of situations. Also contributing to its versatility is a half life-size 1:2 maximum magnification ratio and 5.9" minimum focusing distance for working with close-up subjects. An OSD stepping motor achieves fast and near-silent autofocus performance along with full-time manual focus override. Additionally, the lens sports a moisture-resistant physical design along with a fluorine coating to suit working in inclement conditions.

Tamron 35mm f/2.8 Di III Reviews
Great lens for the price
Honestly I have nothing bad to say about the lens the weight is featherlike the picture quality is great and in comparison to other lens with twice the tag it really competes neck and neck in photo quality . Honestly I love shooting with the lens it creates great images if I'm not using my Batis 85 this lens is the one I have on my camera 9/10 times.. if you buy this lens you won't regret it. attached is a photo I took of downtown Los Angeles For example with a zoom ss of the building (quality may drop since I had to ss for size requirements).
Go-to lens for stills
I take mostly pictures of stills, so the frequent complaints about autofocus have not bothered me. This has become my go-to lens for hikes in the mountains, walks around town, the backyard, and just about anything else that does not move. Its close-up capability allows me to switch immediately from landscapes to flowers and back. It is plenty sharp over the whole distance range, as well as from center to edge. My only gripe is the overly tight fit on the A7III (shared with its 24mm cousin).
Bang for your Buck
Brutally sharp w/ great contrast and a pretty solid build (even if it is hard plastic). If manually focusing, it's so razor thin and sharp on the focus draw that it's easy to miss, so auto-focus is pretty much necessary Also, the auto-focus is horrible if left to its own devices, but here's a tip: Put your focus mode on AF-C or DMF and press that shutter button down a hair. I just did 2 events, got 2500 pictures and of that number 2200 were quickly focused on and sharp as a button. Then and o0nly then is it really good, great for the price, and you can shoot without fear. SO SET IT UP! Great lens and I'm definitely buying the 24mm next.
Does the job
This lens is actually pretty decent for walk-around. Although not as good as any Sony prime, it has its moments. It's definitely worth It's price. Good sharpness and nice contrast.
Hits above it's price
Overall this is an excellent lens. It's a very sharp lens. You will read comments regarding it's lightweight build & slowish AF. It is very light, but feels good. The AF is perfectly fine in most cases. It will hunt in very low light but then again so will most lenses. The noise is not nearly as loud as many say. Yes, you can hear it. And that might be an issue for video. But anything else it's fine. Keeping in mind the price, you can't go wrong with this lens.
Senator work with Sony A7iv !!!!!!
B&H should tell you that there is a known issue with all the Tamron primes they don't work with the Sony a7iv. now I have to return it
Bought for Macro
Superior optical quality/price ratio. Macro is a PLUS. The rest is good enough for basic shooting
Nice little lens!
Wanted a small light 35m for travel and general walking around, as my Sony GM's are large and heavy. Its small and light. Ive only shot maybe 50 pics, most look pretty good. As others have said, a bit slow on the AF and also somewhat noisy. But at $199, cant beat it!
