Tamron 14-150mm f/3.5-5.8 overview

  • 1Description

The black Tamron 14-150mm f/3.5-5.8 Di III Lens is a wide-angle to telephoto zoom lens that is compatible with the Micro Four Thirds standard. This lens has a 35mm equivalent focal length of 28-300mm, suitable for use in almost any situation, and the lens' compact design makes it a highly portable option for everyday use.

The lens construction integrates two molded-glass aspherical elements and one hybrid aspherical element to minimize chromatic aberrations throughout the zoom range. Also benefiting the reduction of chromatic aberrations is the inclusion of one LD (low dispersion) glass element, which additionally helps to increase image sharpness, clarity, and color fidelity. Also contributing to an impressive image quality is the seven-blade circular diaphragm, which helps to produce an aesthetic out-of-focus quality. Additionally, for use with movie recording is a stepping autofocus motor, which provides fast, quiet, and accurate AF performance.

Compatible with the Micro Four Thirds standard.
Two molded-glass aspherical elements, one hybrid aspherical element, and one LD glass element help to reduce chromatic aberrations and improve overall image sharpness, clarity, and color fidelity.
A stepping motor autofocus system provides quick, quiet, and precise AF performance that ideally suits HD movie recording and fast-moving subject tracking.
Compact and lightweight design is ideal for traveling and a metal lens barrel provides increased durability and tactility.

    Tamron 14-150mm f/3.5-5.8 reviews

    14-150mm f/3.5-5.8 Di III Lens for Micro Four Thirds (Black) is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 26.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Competant all-in-one lens The Tamron 14-150 zoom is very useful to me when I am walking around, travelling, etc. as I can adjust my view from wide angle to telepoto without having to change lenses. The lens itself is very convenient to use. The zoom ring moves smoothly with just enough friction that there is no tendency to change position when pointed up or down. There is a lock switch, but I see no reason to use it. Optically, this appears to be a superior lens. While not doing lab type tests, the lens appears to have high resolution at all focal lengths and I do not see any visible distortions in the images. I have used many zooms over the years and this is among the best.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow.. Finally... I've been waiting for this lens for awhile and am not disappointed in any way. I received serial number 299. The quality, feel, metal construction is excellent. Nice rubber tactile feel on the zoom and focus dial. Made in Japan. A very good all around lens. I have 6 micro 4 3rds lenses and I figure this will be on my camera 50% of the time. I do like primes but optically I've been very impressed with this lens for many situations, portrait, macro, landscape. Wow, so versatile. There is no lens creep but Tamron does have a lock on the 14mm setting. Doesn't need it but, hey, I like it. The results have been excellent and I highly recommend this lens

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Took a chance I took a chance and ordered this lens without any reviews and I could not be happier with this lens. I was very concerned that I would not be able to achieve the DOF effects that I could get with my Nikon D200 but this lens paired with the Olympus OMD E-M1 is amazing maybe the 7 blade iris has something to do with it but I am getting creamy smooth DOF and Bokeh with this lens.Cons: None this is a great little lens that is well built and does a great job perfect for travel.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Glass - Perfect for Olympus Users I bought this lens to be my outdoor travel lens for my E-M5 along with my 25mm 1.4 pany for indoors and night shots. My primary rig is my E-M1 with the 12-40 pro and 40-150 pro. I also have most of the great Olympus primes as well. The Tamron rivals the other lenses in build quality. Photos are sharp and very 'usable' from a publication perspective. The zoom ring is well dampened and the focus ring is nice and precise. Nothing rattles on this glass. It feels light weight. It has a lock button, but short of a rough landing while parachuting I don't think the lens will extend by itself. My only wish is that it were weather sealed. But I'm very very happy with this purchase. I'm confident you will be too. I recommend this over both the Pany and Oly super-zooms. You won't be disappointed even while pixel-peeping. Enjoy.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Bang for the Buck! This is not a prime lens, and it's not the fastest, but it delivers very nice pictures over a zoom range that really hits the 'sweet spot'. It's 14-150mm range (28-300 dslr equiv) has so far covered literally every shot i've wanted to take. I haven't done much low light yet, but that's coming up. I figure I could have spent $500+ more and maybe picked a half f-stop and images a tad sharper close up, but if one does not have an unlimited budget but wants to enjoy versatility, convenience and performance at an acceptable price this lens deserves a close look.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A winner... better than I expected. Everything about this lens appeared optional to me for its intended useone travel-sized compact m43 lens that would cover most of my everyday needs from moderately wide angle to telescopic while delivering good optical performance. The excellent Olympus IBIS system and high ISO performance make what I would otherwise consider a fairly slow lens workable for what I actually shoot day to day. Unfortunately, I could find no reviews on the internet answering several of my questions or commenting on image quality of this new lens. Hopefully, these comments will answer some of yours. With the assurance from B&H that I could return the lens if I wasn't satisfied, I ordered a black one two days ago and UPS delivered it this morning.For background I have several Olympus bodies (EM5, EM1, and EPL5) together with a half dozen late model Panasonic bodies. I also own the Panasonic 12-35/2.8 and 35-100/2.8 lens together with the new Olympus 12-40/2.8, the Olympus 75/1.8 and a dozen or so other m43 Olympus and Panasonic primes. I shoot stills almost exclusively in raw, jpg, or both depending on the situation. Post processing is done with Aperture. I mention this as background only to validate that I have some point of reference and experience with the m43 system from which to comment.After handing the lens on the camera and shooting a 100 or so shots handheld, on a tripod, indoor and outdoor I find this lens appears to be everything I hoped it would be. It is compact (almost the same length as the Oly 12-50/3.5-6.3 but only slightly larger in diameterboth use 52mm filters. It's weight is just right and feels good in the hand.. It has double telescoping lens tubes that extend moderately and that are reassuringly stiff I would expect no zoom creep. The marked focal lengths on the wide zoom control ring index very accurately. Effective apertures a marked focal lengths are as follows: 14:f3.5, 25:f4.4, 35:f4.7, 50:f5.2, 70:f5.6, 100:f5.8, 150:F:5.8. There is a slight rattle when powering up but I consider it insignificant. I found autofocus to be identical with anything I experience with the high end Olympus or Panasonic lens. The lens looks and feels good, nothing seems cheap about it. By the way, it has a 6 year US warranty.I examined all of my straight out of the camera jpg shots on a calibrated Apple monitor sized at 50 and 100%. Everything was shot with the lens wide open at each marked focal length. For my intended use and my standards, everything down to about 1/8 second handheld was very acceptable to excellent. Stopped down a bit, I would expect the optical performance to be even better. A couple of very contrasty shots I intentionally made of trees and leaves against a bright sky showed traces of chromatic aberration which were corrected with one click (the only thing needing editing). No meaningful vignetting was observed at any setting. Everything was sharp enough, corner to corner for me. If I need something razor sharp, I can move to a prime like the Olympus 75 (which is larger and much heavier than this lens).I keeping this lens; it's better than I expected. Together with a Olympus 17/1.8 or 25/1.8 it's really all I need probably 90% of the time. For all of those other situations, I have it covered provided I have the equipment with me and I can plan ahead.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A very good long range zoom lens Over the years I have tried several long range zoom lenses. Most have been little used due to the problems with such lenses. This one appears to be an exception. I have had it on my OM-D E-M5 most of the time for the past week. The lens focuses quickly and accurately. Sharpness and contrast are good, Although there is some minor fall off in sharpness at the edges of the frame, It is unnoticeable in a typical image. Bokeh is really very nice. There is some vignetting at the longer focal lengths. It shows up the the raw file and is mostly corrected by the camera processor in the jpeg. Similarly, distortion at short focal lengths is corrected by the camera processor and can only be seen in the raw file. The raw files are easily corrected in post processing. I have found the bane of long range zooms to be chromatic aberration. The defect is not corrected by the camera software. This lens has very little chromatic aberration compared to other long range zooms. It handles high contrast with almost no trace of color fringes. I am very much pleased by the high image quality from such a compact and light weight lens. It may not be perfect, but it is likely to become my standard lens.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gem of a lens Superb walkaround lens for my Olympus E-M10. Exactly I need when I don't want to carry my full DSLR setup. The Olympus equivalent was backordered so I looked at the Tamron and was pleasantly surprise: better specs, slightly smaller and excellent reviews online. I knew that I could return it easily to B&H, so I decided to try it. Feels like a traditional piece of hi-quality camera gear. Well made with metal exterior. The lens cap is well designed & easy to remove with a pinch release mechanism. However, for walkaround work, I put the lens hood on and replace the lens cap with a flexible neoprene cover tied to the camera strap. I can sling the whole rig over my shoulder and it's ready to go. The neoprene cover (LensCoat) plus the lens hood protects the lens and is quick to remove. Images are sharp and moderately contrasty with a nice round bokeh (subjective, but I like it). All in all, I now have a setup that is just right - almost DSLR quality and way better than a point & shoot without much added weight.
