Chris Gampat The Phoblographer Tamron 35mm f1.8 Di VC product images (5 of 5)ISO 1001-800 sec at f - 2.0

It’s been a while since Tamron released a new prime lens–but today they’re announcing something totally new. In a meeting yesterday, the company shared with us that they’ve been envisioning the next evolution of their lenses; and the first of those being announced today is the Tamron 35mm f1.8 Di VC. This is a full frame lens designed for Canon and Nikon DSLRs with Sony Alpha support coming sooner or later.

In the company’s presentations, they pit it squarely against the Sigma 35mm f1.4, Canon’s 35mm f1.4 L, and the Nikon 35mm f1.4 G. However, this lens incorporates weather sealing (unlike Canon and Sigma’s, though the new Canon 35mm f1.4 L II USM incorporates weather sealing) and is priced at only $599.

Chris Gampat The Phoblographer Sigma 24-35mm f2 review product images (2 of 9)ISO 4001-60 sec at f - 2.8

Not long ago, Sigma announced the fastest aperture zoom lens made for a full frame camera: the 24-35mm f2 DG HSM Art. With a constant f2 aperture range throughout its zoom range, it is the fastest constant aperture full frame lens made so far. But with that comes what many believe to be a big tradeoff. The lens has a very limited zoom range and essentially gives you three big focal lengths: 24mm, 28mm and 35mm. However, these lengths are made possible by 18 elements working together in 13 groups in conjunction with a 9 bladed aperture.

And at under $1,000 this lens any many others that Sigma makes may be some of the few things keeping you working with DSLRs.
