With its fast aperture, exceptional optical quality and quick autofocus, Tamron SP 35mm f/1.4 Di USD is an ideal lens for reportage, street photogtraphy, portraits, weddings and sports.
Weather sealed and durable
Tamron SP 35mm f/1.4 Di USD is equipped with rubber gaskets at all exposed points that prevent rain and moisture from penetrating the casing. The front element has a fluorine coating that repels water and grease and makes it easy to clean.
The outer casing itself is not only elegant with its smooth, matte black surface but also resistant to shocks and scratches. The lens's solid construction creates a very tangible premium feeling and together with Tamron's 5-year guarantee, it is also a safe purchase.
Fast, silent and tailor-made autofocus
The autofocus is powered by Tamron's silent USD (Ultrasonic Silent Drive) motor. The fast aperture sets special requirements and Tamron has adapted the focus mechanism so that it can move the heavy glass elements quickly and with high precision. The latter is particularly important with the shallow depth of field produced at f/1.4. The USD motor also allows the user to perform manual fine adjustments of the focus, without switching from AF to MF mode.
The lavish optical design of the Tamron SP 35mm f/1.4 Di USD consists of 14 elements divided into 10 groups. These include three aspherical elements that correct spherical aberration and astigmatism. Together, they ensure that the lens provides high sharpness across the entire image even at full aperture, and exceptional resolution after stopping down the aperture only moderately.
Four elements made of LD glass (Low Dispersion) minimize chromatic aberration, unwanted color bleeding. The amount of chromatic aberration is so low that it’s practically invisible. The optics and its nine-blade aperture are also designed to provide a soft and beautiful bokeh, which is an important feature for many users of fast lenses.
Tamron SP 35mm f/1.4 Di USD also has Tamron's advanced anti-reflective coating BBAR-G2 that guarantees images with high contrast and stunning brilliance even in difficult situations such as backlight, spotlights on concerts and motifs with lots of shiny and reflective details.
Although Tamron 35mm f/1.4 Di USD is designed as a wide-angle lens for full-frame cameras, it also works great as a fast normal lens on models with APS-C sensor. It can also be used on the latest mirrorless cameras from Canon and Nikon, when combined with these manufacturers' special adapters (Canon EF to EOS R and Nikon FTZ adapter). Metering modes, aperture control and autofocus will function just as us
ual. With the Tamron Tap-in Console (accessory), the user can update the lens firmware and, if necessary, fine-tune the autofocus via a dedicated software. The Tap-in console makes Tamron 35mm f/1.4 Di USD a future-proof investment.
