For the first time, there is a lens developed specially for portrait photography that offers different focal lengths for creative image composition. The 35-150 mm F/2.8-4 Di VC OSD (model A043) zoom is developed for portrait photographers who want to work in different portrait situations with just one lens without having to change where they are standing: 85 mm is ideal for classic portrait shots that show the person's head and shoulders, 35 mm allows whole-body shots that also show the environment, and 150 mm is suitable for close-up shots that show facial features in more detail.
One lens, endless possibilities
The lens offers high speed at F/2.8 in wide angle and F/4 in telephoto, which allows a wonderful bokeh effect. The minimum object distance across the whole zoom range is 45cm, which offers lots of new options for composition in the close-up range. The 35-150 mm F/2.8-4 is the first lens in its class to allow portrait photographers endless opportunities to achieve creative compositions in their shots. High image quality plus maximum flexibility and creativity – Tamron’s new portrait lens has it all.
High image quality
The optical construction of the 35-150 mm F/2.8-4 Di VC OSD minimises image defects using a special arrangement of LD (Low Dispersion) elements and hybrid aspheric components. Tamron’s BBAR coating (Broad-Band Anti-Reflection) contributes to a significant reduction in ghost images and scattered light inside the lens, especially in backlit situations typical in portrait photography. This allows image results with the sharpness and contrast to meet the requirements of DSLR cameras with 50 megapixel sensors and more.
