Versatile Zoom Range
Characterised as a wide to telephoto-length zoom lens, the Tamron 35-150mm f2-2.8 Di III VXD is well-suited to working in various lighting conditions whilst offering superior depth of field control for isolating specific subject matter. This capability allows for bright, colour-accurate portrait photography, with the rounded 9-blade diaphragm contributing to a delicate bokeh surrounding the subject in the frame. The 35mm and 50mm ranges are ideal for exploring cityscapes and interior architecture, illustrating its all-around versatility that is well-suited to travelling photographers.
When shooting at the 35mm wide-angle end, the MOD (Minimum Object Distance) stands at 0.33m, which equates to a maximum magnification ratio of 1:5.7. When paired with the large f2 aperture, this allows you to centre your frame around a particular subject, achieving an excellent exposure and creating a background bokeh aesthetic. This feature draws the focus to your subject and encourages more creative freedom across various photographic disciplines.
The 35-150mm F2-2.8 Di III VXD for Nikon Z benefits from the same optimised ergonomics as the first Sony E model, with a tactile grip and improved texture on the focus and zoom rings for smoother, more accurate adjustments. This results in more accurate images and a premium feel to the overall build. It also features a shinier, glossy finish, further adding to its overall quality and style. Finally, Tamron has given this lens a degree of moisture resistance that, whilst not being fully weather-proof, does mean that it is incredibly well-suited to travel photography.
