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

Tamron had been saying it would be their finest lens to date. Bryan seems to like it.

The lens' IQ seems to be very good - and I am glad that my EF-M 32 mm looks very good too which is the right focal length for me as one-lens-solution (EDIT: on APS-C where it has approx. 50mm equiv). Hopefully Tamron creates an f/1.4 50mm of the same breed because I would like to have one if I go full frame ...
