Tamron 35-150mm f/2-2.8 Di III VXD Reviews

Worth the Long Wait

By Frank
Rated 5 out of 5

Great for: Wedding, Event, Sports, Portrait, hybrid shooting Not so great for: prolonged gimbal operation Pros: focal length, aperture, minimal focus breathing, customizable control, fast VXD AF motor, linear MF control, build quality Minor Con: flare resistance, no stabilization, stiff zoom ring Conclusion: Absolutely worth 6 months of wait. I would go as far as to say that this is the best third-party lens ever under 200mm focal length and definitely the most innovative Sony E mount lens ever. Paired with 16-35 f/2.8, it got you covered for 99% of scenarios.

Huge!!

Absolutely beautiful lens (much bigger than I expected)! Has all the features that I need for photo and video!

Meets or surpasses all my expectations,.

I have been looking for a true walk around lenses from the standpoint of my style of photography for a number of years. I wanted a fast lens with good bokeh, that could focus close up, and was sharp throughout its zoom range. The image rendering of this lens is excellent, it has good bokeh, and I can focus close enough so for all intense and purposes it is a macro lens. If I need a wider view than 35mm I can merge two images and If I need more than 150mm I can crop my 61 mp images so I am satisfied with the range given the performance of the lens within that range.

God's lens.

A game changing lens that successfully breaks the "holy trinity" and makes it some what irrelevant...progress in the lens industry is much appreciated as it's fallen way behind compared to the RDTE of camera body development. The water proof USB-C is brilliant and demonstrates how little RDTE money Canon, Sony, Fuji, and Nikon have actually put towards their lenses. These big manufacturers are still producing the same old DSLR lenses with minimal improvements and claiming they are revolutionary mirrorless lenses. It's ridiculous the minimal effort we continue to let the get away with as consumers. Not a single one of them with their millions in budget thought for a second to incorporate a waterproof USB-C? A rather obvious choice for connectivity? No instead they want to sell you docks and or use memory card in body upgrades. It's ridiculous when you think about it. Stop rewarding them with your money. Back to the lens... The lens hasn't left my a7R4 since I bought it. Everything you've heard about it's PQ, focus speed, aperture speed, bokeh, lack of CA, etc.. is very true. It's just excellent in performance. What's NOT true are some of the complaints, most notably the complaint on weight. It's 13 oz lighter than most 70-200mm lenses, no one complains about the 70-200mm weight because it's understood you're getting great range, aperture, and build quality. So why complain here? Because someone put it in your head, that's why. My wife weighs 115 lbs soaking wet and has no issue carrying this for hours at a time shooting my kid's athletic events in 90 degree heat and humidity. If you're having issues with the weight, hmm...go get checked out. The lens is a game changer, I will never buy a 24-70 or 70-200mm ever again. They are irrelevant to my mirrorless journey, and I pray there is improvement in supply for this lens because it's insanely excellent and other need to see for themselves what real progress in lenses looks like.

Perfect event lens!

What more can you ask for when shooting an event? 35mm for group shots, 150mm for catching action further away. Really exactly what I've been looking for, and luckily I got the day before an event I was shooting. It performed flawlessly. Great lens!

I have used this for photo and video and I absolutely love the range this offers. It is a no-brainer purchase for anyone who doesn't yet have the trifecta (14-24,24-70,70-200) AND for those who already do but want to minimalize. I give you random musings that I jotted down about this lens from my past 4 projects: The focus ring behaves well off the bat for manual focus. The large barrel helps. It defaults to an intelligent linear setting. If you're fast on the focus, it will rack fast, and if you're slow, it will crawl. I love that I have the option to change its behavior later via software. The zoom tension is balanced. I don't feel it's too loose or tight at all. Hoping that throughout its life it will stay this way. Love that there's a lock mechanism to keep the barrel in. This lens weighs less than my Nikon and Canon 70-200 2.8s. Why are people complaining about how heavy it is? The bokeh is yummy. 35mm f/2 is beautiful! makes me wish I didn't sell my 35 1.4. For video, the lack of IS makes smooth pans and tilts slightly harder. Glad I have IBIS and a good tripod head. I need to try this baby on my RS2... Lastly, on a related note- my review on my experience of preordering this lens from B&H: I preordered around Nov 2021, shortly after it launched and 6 months later it arrived at my door. It ended up being worth the wait but I wish there was something B&H can do from a service standpoint for anyone purchasing it via CC/Paypal as they will pay upfront for the cost. Of course, B&H disclosed the policy clearly when I ordered but this experience certainly tested my patience. The feeling of having paid $2k upfront towards something you have no idea when it will arrive, stinks. I reframed it by considering it as a CD investment or crypto staking. I deliberately waited after launch to hear real feedback from professionals before preordering so I knew I was very likely going to be satisfied but if the real-life performance of this 35-150 didn't live up to the hype, I'm not sure that I would be feeling so great about having $2k in limbo. The moral of the story.... be patient, and be kind. To the B&H gods... if there was more you could do to communicate the timeframe to pre-orders that would be appreciated. Or if we didn't have to pay up front when using CC/Paypal, that would be appreciated too!

Unique, Well Built, Amazing.

This lens combines a great range with a great aperture which you never get together. Wide at 35mm all the way to 150mm while being at f2 through f2.8 is unbeatable. It is so good, it has replaced the need for a 70-200 in my opinion. Possible drawbacks you might have: 1. Yes, it is heavy. However, you adjust quickly and once you do it becomes the lens of choice for many situations. 2. Don't be too stuck on f2 vs f2.8. Yes f2 is not for much focal length (you loose it almost as soon as you zoom and it gets closer to f2.8) but I doubt you can see a HUGE difference. Just remember that if you are at 35mm, make sure it is set to f2. Sometimes it gets lost when you turn on the camera and goes to f2.8.
