Tamron teases four new mirrorless lenses, likely not for RF

By Canon Rumors | August 22, 2019 | Third Party Lenses

Tamron USA has begun teasing four new mirrorless lenses on their Facebook page.

There’s no mention of what the four lenses are as of yet, or what mount(s) these lenses will be available for. I think it’s still a bit early to see third party autofocus lenses for Canon’s RF mount from Tamron or SIGMA, but surprises do happen.

Tamron currently has 2 mirrorless lenses for Sony’s  FE mount, so it’s likely these will be for Sony as well. Judging by the teaser, it looks like a telephoto zoom lens and three prime lenses are coming.

Review: Tamron 35mm f/1.4 Di USD

Review: Tamron 35mm f/1.4 Di USD

By Canon Rumors | August 19, 2019 | Canon Reviews

The-Digital-Picture have completed their review of the brand new Tamron 35mm f/1.4 Di USD, a lens Tamron claims to be their best ever.

Does it hold up to Tamron’s claims?

You typically buy a wide aperture lens to use at its widest aperture. Often, the aperture selected on my mounted prime lens does not leave the wide-open setting. Unfortunately, the image quality at the wide-open aperture is so often not amazing, typically showing reduced resolution and contrast. The good news is that this lens turns in very nice image quality even at f/1.4.

The Tamron 35mm f/1.4 Di USD Lens delivers very sharp full frame corner-to-corner results with a wide-open f/1.4 aperture. Stopping down to f/2 brings a noticeable bump in contrast and another slight increase can be seen at f/4 where the results are very impressive. Read the full review
