According to The Digital Picture, Tamron has filed a patent for a 115mm f1.4 VC lens. Many photographers swear by lenses covering the focal range from 85-135mm for portraiture, so this offering seems to sit square in the middle. It could definitely shake things up a bit if its performance is up to par and rivals some of the lenses from Tamron’s competition. The included VC (vibration compensation) and 1.4 aperture is sure to pique the interests of many shooters.
I personally have found the 135mm offerings from both Canon and Nikon to be incredible, although a bit long at times for studio portraiture. This 115mm from Tamron could be just what I, and I’m sure many other indoor shooters, are hoping for! Let’s hope it gets an actual release!
