Fantastic wide-angle photos, easy handling
Excellent picture quality and maximum comfort
Capture incredible subjects in impressive snapshots
The 17-35 mm f/2.8-4 Di OSD (model A037) is a compact and light ultra-wide-angle zoom lens that offers excellent image quality. Specially optimised glass allows thorough correction of the chromatic aberrations that occur more regularly with ultra-wide-angle lenses. The imaging performance is comparable with professional lenses in its sharpness and contrast. Because of the zoom range of 35 mm standard wide-angle up to 17 mm ultra wide-angle, the 17-35 mm is ideal for journalism and landscape photography, but is also suitable for a variety of other photography situations. The lens is very convenient, with a length of just 90 mm, a diameter of 83.6 mm and a weight of just 460 g. The low minimum object distance of 0.28 m and the large aperture lends shots beautiful background blur. The 17-35 mm f/2.8-4 Di OSD will help you capture the special atmosphere of the moment in unique photos.
Features and Functions
New anti-reflection coating: Perfect for backlit shots
A strong backlight often results in unwanted reflections in the lens. In developing the 17-35 mm f/2.8-4 Di OSD, Tamron has gone to great lengths to eliminate these aberrations using comprehensive, multi-stage simulation analysis. The optical construction has also been optimised and the overall imaging performance has been maximised. The BBAR coating (broad-band anti-reflection) results in high transmission and prevents ghost images and scattered light.
Extremely quiet autofocus
The autofocus motor has a newly developed OSD module (Optimised Silent Drive) that allows silent focusing. This makes the lens ideal for situations in which absolute silence is needed during photography. Because of the reaction speed of the AF, the high focusing precision and the outstanding performance when following a subject, you will never miss the perfect moment, even with moving subjects.
Perfect protection thanks to fluorine coating and weatherproof construction
The front lens has a water- and grease-repellent fluorine coating. This makes cleaning the lens surface easier and protects it from scratches and damage from dirt, dust, moisture and fingerprints. The seals in the lens provide additional protection from the weather when shooting outdoors.
