Category:Ultra Wide Angle Zoom

Every day, every subject – take a wider look at the world

Versatile F/2.8 wide-angle for everyday use for Sony E-mount full-frame mirrorless cameras

The 35mm F/2.8 Di III OSD M1:2 (Model F053) is a wide-angle, fixed focal lens suitable for just about every shooting situation. The 35mm focal length is wide angle-of-view, but natural perspective and field-of-view for instinctive image capture. The lens is great for many different types of photography, including portraits with context, food photography, and nature. Very light in weight and compact, it hardly adds anything to the heft to your bag, so you can carry it comfortably every day. Focusing as close as 0.15m (5.9 in), you can fill the frame with even small subjects. In addition to the F/2.8 aperture, the Model F053 is constructed using special glass materials including LD (Low Dispersion) and GM (Glass Molded Aspherical) lens elements effectively arranged to quash aberrations. The Model F053 provides outstanding optical performance across the entire frame, and delivers a sharp image, right down to the texture of the subject. With Moisture-Resistant Construction and dirt-resistant Fluorine Coating, photographers can shoot confidently outdoors. You will discover beauty that you have never experienced before. This lens may lead you to new discoveries.

Get closer to your subject. As close as 0.15m.

One of the key features that makes this lens so exciting is its amazing ability to shoot close-ups. With this lens, you can get closer to an object than you’d ever imagined. At the 0.15m (5.9 in) MOD (Minimum Object Distance), the lens achieves its maximum magnification ratio of 1:2. You’ll never again be frustrated because you cannot get close to an object while shooting. This remarkable performance allows users to create compositions that exploit dramatic perspective (closer subjects are larger, and distant ones are smaller) and that are unique to wide-angle lenses. By getting close to an object, you can produce a one-of-a-kind photo and leverage the beautifully blurred background bokeh.

The extreme portability enhances the limitless versatility of the lens

Take it with you anywhere. This lens travels as well as it performs. And because it’s matched to lightweight full-frame mirrorless cameras, your entire system becomes light, fast and nimble. It has a very compact body, weighing just 210g (7.4 oz) and an overall length of 64mm (2.5 in). It’s comfortably portable, highly maneuverable and amazingly easy to use and compose. Because the overall length does not change when focusing, you can get as close to an object as you need to without fear of accidentally bumping the front element. The lens has the same 67mm filter diameter as the other members of the series of Tamron high-speed lenses for Sony E-mount cameras. So you can swap filters (like polarizers), lens caps and other accessories for convenience. Who says great things can’t come in small packages?

The ideal lens for everyday use and rapid, sharp candids

This lens provides outstanding optical performance and overall image quality, characteristics relentlessly demanded from a prime, fixed focal lens. The expert arrangement of the LD and GM specialized glass elements greatly controls aberrations, including chromatic aberrations. Tamron’s proprietary BBAR (Broad-Band Anti-Reflection) Coating reduces ghosting and flare, which can otherwise occur when taking a photo against the sun. Moreover, leveraging your camera body’s features* it delivers, throughout the frame, high resolution performance that maximizes the benefits of the latest high-megapixel cameras. Whether shooting on the street, full-scale landscapes or architectural photography, this lens delivers exceptionally crisp, colorful and beautiful images and helps you fulfill your creative ambitions.

17-28mm F/2.8 Di III RXD

Category:Ultra Wide Angle Zoom Tags : 
17Mirrorless-for-sony

A lens as luminous as your creative vision

Large aperture F/2.8 ultra wide-angle zoom lens for full-frame mirrorless

Step out of the normal lens zone and into the wilds of wide-angle. The 17-28mm F/2.8 Di III RXD (Model A046) is a large aperture ultra wide-angle zoom lens for Sony E-mount that was designed exclusively for mirrorless cameras and provides unrivalled portability and superb image quality. It’s the smallest and lightest weight zoom lens in its class. The dramatic 17-28mm zoom range adds new dimensions to photographing landscapes, cityscapes, mountains and scenic vistas—as well as groups and building interiors. Despite its compact size, it offers outstanding optical performance. Strategically deployed LD (Low Dispersion) and XLD (eXtra Low Dispersion) lens elements thoroughly suppress chromatic aberration. The combination of ultra wide-angle focal length and an MOD (Minimum Object Distance) of 0.19m (7.5 in) at the wide-angle end encourages richly expressive and creative photography. The new 17-28mm zoom’s AF drive system is powered by the RXD (Rapid eXtra-silent stepping Drive) stepping motor unit that enables it to deliver high-speed, high-precision operation. In addition, the new zoom lens features Moisture-Resistant Construction and a hydrophobic Fluorine Coating that repels fingerprints and dirt. This compact but powerful tool will boost your mobility and drive your vision of capturing subjects in new ways.

Compact size you can take anywhere—and everywhere

Tamron makes large aperture ultra wide-angle photography more exciting, and for this lens we focused on usability. The 17-28mm zoom range was carefully selected; that paved the way for a surprisingly small size—just 99mm (3.9 in) long, weighing but 420g (14.8 oz). The overall length of the lens does not change during zooming, thereby offering consistent handling and stable shooting operations. In addition, the Φ67mm filter size is small for a large aperture ultra wide-angle zoom lens. Plus, it shares the same filter diameter as the high-speed standard zoom lens in the series, the 28-75mm F/2.8 Di III RXD (Model A036). This means the same filters such as PL (Polarizer), lens caps and other accessories may be used for both models.

Beautifully capture every scene and vista

The 17-28mm zoom provides magnificent image quality without compromise despite its compactness. Two LD lens elements and one XLD element (which has properties close to fluorite) are precisely located to quash chromatic and other aberrations. In addition, the BBAR (Broad-Band Anti-Reflection) Coating applied to lens surfaces reduces ghosting and flare that are otherwise likely to occur when shooting against the sunset’s glow and other backlit situations. Leveraging camera functions*, it provides excellent optical performance matching the latest high resolution image sensors from edge-to-edge throughout the entire zoom range. The 17-28mm zoom invites you into the breathtaking world of ultra wide-angle photography.
* When shooting with the camera’s lens correction function enabled.

Superior close-up shooting performance empowers creativity

The 17-28mm zoom features an MOD of 0.19m (7.5 in) at the wide 17mm end, rendering a maximum magnification ratio of 1:5.2. At the tele end, the MOD is 0.26m (10.2 in) and the maximum magnification ratio is 1:6. In short, you can easily get close enough for a powerful shot. Your images can emphasize the perspective unique to ultra wide-angle lenses, and you can produce soft expressions with a shallow depth of field distinctive to large aperture lenses by opening the aperture and getting close to the subject. Versatile, functional and sensational—all at the same time.

High performance autofocus system means you'll own every shooting opportunity

The AF drive on the 17-28mm zoom includes an RXD motor unit to help you stay focused on the action. RXD uses an actuator to precisely control the rotational angle of the motor, allowing it to directly drive the focusing lens without passing through a reduction gear. A sensor that accurately detects the position of the lens enables high-speed and precise AF, which is ideal when shooting continually moving subjects or recording video. Perfect for street shooting and grab shots of groups of friends. And with a focusing system that is both smooth and quiet, the new 17-28mm zoom lets you shoot a video without worrying about picking up ambient drive sounds.

Built with Mirrorless in Mind

Tamron’s new 17-28mm zoom is compatible with many of the advanced features that are specific to mirrorless cameras. This includes:
- Fast Hybrid AF
- Eye AF
- Direct Manual Focus (DMF)
- In-camera lens correction (shading, chromatic aberration, distortion)
- Camera-based lens unit firmware updates

17-35mm F/2.8-4 Di OSD

Category:Ultra Wide Angle Zoom Tags : 

Wide-angle photography just got easier

Creating high quality photos with ease gives you a whole new wide-angle perspective

The 17-35mm F/2.8-4 Di OSD (Model A037) is an ultra-wide-angle zoom lens that combines superb image quality with outstanding portability as the lightest and smallest size in its class.* It uses four LD (Low Dispersion) lens elements to minimize axial chromatic aberrations. And with two GM (Glass Molded Aspherical) lenses not only can it provide the sharpness and contrast demanded by high-end lenses, it can also handle peripheral point image reproducibility. Furthermore, it has repeatedly gone through our proprietary ghosting analysis simulation employed to resist backlighting problems from strong light sources to which wide-angle lenses are often subjected. Along with an enhanced high level optical construction, the lens has BBAR (Broad-Band Anti-Reflection) Coating highly effective in reducing reflection and controlling ghosting and flare. The Minimum Object Distance (MOD) for the entire zoom range is a short 0.28m (11 in), so you can still enjoy the background blurring effect when shooting full open aperture and close-up with this ultra-wide-angle zoom. The Model A037 also has a circular aperture that gives you beautiful circular bokeh.

* Among ultra-wide-angle zoom lenses using an F-stop faster than F/4 for full-frame DSLR cameras. (As of July, 2018: Tamron)

A compact wide-angle zoom lens that's easy to grab and shoot.

The Model A037 was created to meet the demand for a lightweight, compact lens with high-level optical performance.

SP 15-30mm F/2.8 Di VC USD G2

Category:Ultra Wide Angle Zoom Tags : 

A world of wonder awaits you

Ultra-optimized optics create yet another incredible image

The SP 15-30mm F/2.8 Di VC USD G2 (Model A041) is a high-speed ultra-wide-angle zoom lens with ultimate image quality that lets you capture all you see.
By utilizing specialty glass materials and aspherical lens elements in the new Model A041, Tamron’s engineers have further minimized the distortion and lateral chromatic aberration that can be an issue with wide-angle shooting. The lens also has triple lens coatings consisting of the newly developed AX (Anti-reflection eXpand) Coating, plus eBAND (Extended Bandwidth & Angular-Dependency) and BBAR (Broad-Band Anti-Reflection) Coatings, which all combine to provide sharp and clear images even in peripheral areas. The Model A041 lens features high precision AF technology and a powerful VC (Vibration Compensation) mechanism. A rear filter holder (for Canon EF-mount only) comes as a standard feature, making the use of filters much easier. As well as Moisture-Resistant Construction, wide-ranging features such as Fluorine Coating newly developed enhancing durability, make it possible to shoot under any type of shooting circumstances.

Tamron upgrades its legendary ultra-wide-angle zoom lens

The SP 15-30mm F/2.8 Di VC USD (Model A012) is a high-quality F/2.8 ultra-wide-angle zoom lens for use with full-frame DSLR cameras that has been lauded by photography enthusiasts throughout the world. To further enhance this legacy of high-quality optics, new functions have been added to create the next generation model, the SP 15-30mm F/2.8 Di VC USD G2 (Model A041) . Incorporating an XGM (eXpanded Glass Molded Aspherical) lens element as well as multiple LD (Low Dispersion) lens elements provides high definition images throughout the entire zoom range.

The newly developed AX Coating enables sharp images

A new revolutionary AX (Anti-reflection eXpand) Coating is accomplished through Tamron's proprietary deposition technology that addresses the difficulty of applying uniformed coating using existing technology. Now the coating can be applied uniformly edge to edge, even if the convex surface has a strong curvature. As a result, the reflectance and color rendition at the peripheral part of the element is the same as the center. The new AX Coating, which is especially effective for wide-angle lenses that tend to let in harmful light from peripheral areas, effectively minimizes ghosting and provides outstanding uniform image clarity.

A great AF performance and image stabilization bring out the lens’s optical performance

In order to engage the full optical performance of the lens, it is essential to control the slightest blur and precise focusing. In this respect, the lens applies a Dual MPU (Micro-Processing Unit), which includes two dedicated MPUs, one for lens system control including AF, and the other for vibration compensation processing. AF speed and precision have been enhanced and image stabilization has been vastly improved, reaching 4.5 stops* according to CIPA standards. Even for handheld shooting, the blur that often arises in low-light conditions is effectively controlled.
* CIPA Standard Compliant. For Canon: EOS-5D MKIII is used. For Nikon: D810 is used.

High precision AF lets you take steady shots

The AF drive uses proprietary Tamron technology, USD (Ultrasonic Silent Drive) providing high torque, response, and silent operation. Manual focus adjustments can be made on the fly with the lens’s Full-time Manual Focus Override system.

The VC mechanism provides powerful support for handheld shooting

The Model A041 has an improved VC (Vibration Compensation) mechanism with vastly better image stabilization performance from the previous Model A012, reaching 4.5 stops according to CIPA standards. This enables sharper images over a wide range of photographic situations, including indoor and outdoor shots as well as landscape photography at stopped-down aperture settings.

New Fluorine Coating for improved durability

The durability of the front element coating is greatly improved with the development of new Fluorine Coating. With the new fluorine compound that has excellent water- and oil-repellent properties, the lens surface is much easier to wipe clean and less vulnerable to damaging effects of dirt, dust, moisture, and fingerprints, and enabling your important lenses to be continually protected on a long-time basis.

The rear filter holder enables greater creative flexibility

A filter holder that allows you to attach gelatin filters to the rear side of the lens is included as a standard feature (for Canon EF-mount only). You can now shoot with filters much more easily, traditionally rather difficult when shooting with ultra-wide-angle lenses with large front lens elements.

The F/2.8 G2 with VC trinity is completed

The SP 15-30mm F/2.8 Di VC USD G2 (Model A041) integrates engineering with human touch design, aiming at intuitive operability, while still emphasizing minute details and texture. The lens is more user-friendly because of innovations including a new switch box design, an improved distant-scale window, and the precision and stability of the metallic mount.
Now three of high-speed zoom lens with VC, SP 15-30mm F/2.8 Di VC USD G2 (Model A041), SP 24-70mm F/2.8 Di VC USD G2 (Model A032) and SP 70-200mm F/2.8 Di VC USD G2 (Model A025), are reborn as Generation 2, providing you with the feeling of luxury and operation unique to the human touch design.
