New Tamron Lenses for Sony E Mount | 24mm and 35mm Review


We’ve got the first look! Now thanks to Tamron for their support on
this one, we got our hands on the new 24 and 35mm f2.8 prime lenses for the Sony
full-frame FE mount. Now Sony lovers unite! I took these beauties out to the Wynwood Art
District here in Miami. My thoughts coming up… But before I get into it, remember visit us
at the Digital Goja showroom in Miami. And, don’t forget, we publish new content

Sony lenses, these lenses should get Sony shooters excited. Now If you’re looking for a more general-purpose
prime lens for portraits, the new Tamron 35mm f2.8 lens is a great option. If you’re looking to shoot a bit wider angles,
you can’t go wrong with the 24mm. Let me know in the comments below if you’ve
been looking forward to trying out these lenses. Since these Tamron lenses make for great wide
angle and general purpose photos, I walked around Wynwood, which is known for all of
its large colorful murals done by some of the world’s greatest street artists and
took some photos. The first thing I noticed was how compact
and lightweight these lenses are. Each of these lenses weigh less than eight
ounces and I was able to fit both lenses, a Sony A7iii, batteries, cables, chargers,
and still had plenty of room to carry around other equipment. While I was walking around Wynwood it was
starting to drizzle a little bit, but knowing that these lenses from Tamron are moisture
resistant I wasn’t worried at all. That’s actually one of the great features
of these lenses and many other Tamron lenses. In terms of performance, the Tamron 24mm and
35mm lenses offer a 1:2 macro capability and they were exactly what I have come to expect
from Tamron…really sharp, a lot of detail, and you get good bokeh. And talking about sharpness, look at this
image of the 1948 Porche 356. I got up really close with the 24mm to exaggerate
the perspective of the interior of the car and you could see how sharp and how much detail
this lens resolves even when shot wide open at f2.8. Now I also noticed that these lenses focused
really fast and was surprisingly really quiet. The minimum focus distance on both these lenses
is just 5.9 inches, which is great for being up-close to your subject and still being able
to get a wide field of view. Check out the photo of this 1964 Corvette
C2. I was able to get close to the wheel and still
get the whole front of the car and another car in the background. This short minimum focus distance is especially
impressive when comparing it to Sony’s similar lenses which have a minimum focus distance
of 13.78 inches. As you can see these lenses do these murals
justice as the color rendition and contrast is really good and make the colors pop. As you can see from this mural of Frida Kahlo
these lenses really make her come to life. While shooting I didn’t notice any chromatic
aberration either. All in all I think the new Tamron 24mm and
35mm f2.8 lenses are a great addition to the Tamron lineup and Sony shooters should give
them a go. Now If you liked this video remember hit the

  1. What is the point of a 35mm 2.8 or even 24mm if you own a 28-75 Tamron 2.8? The lens to get is probably the forthcoming 20mm, right?
