In our review, we said:

“Don’t let the plasticky exterior fool you. Like the other Sony E mount lenses that Tamron introduced recently, the Tamron 70-180mm f2.8 is weather-sealed. You don’t have to worry about photographing in inclement weather as long as you’re mounting this lens to a weather-sealed E mount camera body.”

“One of the things that makes the Tamron 28-75mm f2.8 Di III RXD so appealing is just how good the image quality is. Not only is the lens capable of delivering sharp images, but the colors are very vibrant and the bokeh is smooth and beautiful.”

In our review, we said:

“The Tamron 17-70mm f2.8 Di III-A VC RXD is a fantastic lens overall. You’re getting old-school Sony image quality, lens character, weather sealing, fast autofocus, and a lightweight body. How could you complain? My absolute favorite thing about this lens is the nostalgic feeling I get working with it.”

IRIX 150mm f2.8 Dragonfly Macro Lens

In our review, we said:

“In the case of the IRIX 150mm f2.8 Dragonfly Macro Lens, it’s hitting the ball right out of the park. This lens exhibits great image quality in a lightweight body. Somehow or other, the company managed to cram 11 aperture blades, solid weather sealing, sharp optics, and an overall nice feeling into a moderately sized lens. Granted, they’re doing this at the sacrifice of autofocus, but I’m okay with that.”

Fujifilm 23mm f2 R WR

In our review, we said:

“The speed when focusing with this lens on the X Pro 2 is very impressive. It’s by far the absolute best lens in Fujifilm’s lineup for street photography and candid shooting due to its autofocus speed.”
