Tamron 100-400mm f/4.5-6.3 VC Review

Tamron started a new revolution of affordable ultra-telephoto zoom lenses with the SP 150-600mm f/5-6.3 VC USD in 2013. The lens was an instant success and spawned a whole new class of lenses. Last year, Tamron launched a second generation of the lens, the G2, which showcased their new build […]

Tamron 24-70mm F2.8 G2 Review

There are few lenses more important to a lens maker’s lineup than the 24-70mm f/2.8 lens. A 24-70mm is valued because of the versatility of its zoom range, which covers a number of very important focal lengths including 24mm, 28mm, 35mm, 50mm, and 70mm. All of these (save perhaps 70mm) […]

Tamron 18-400mm VC HLD Review

One of the primary strengths of interchangeable lens camera systems like DSLRs is that you can, well, change lenses. This allows you to customize the lens to the job at hand and get the best results. But what about the people who don’t really want to change lenses? Those frustrated […]

Tamron SP 85mm F/1.8 Di VC USD Review

Tamron SP 90mm F/2.8 Di Macro 1:1 VC USD Review

It was only 28 months ago that I was reviewing the predecessor to this lens, and my final verdict was that it was generally excellent and a strong competitor to lenses like the Canon 100mm f/2.8L IS while undercutting it significantly in price. So why, you might ask, is Tamron […]

Tamron 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 Di II VC Review

Tamron is a company on the move. Some of their recent releases like the 15-30mm f/2.8 VC have instantly been hailed as class-leading, professional-grade lenses and the expectations for the new stabilized primes (35mm and 45mm) are equally high.  Yet Tamron hasn’t forgotten the fact that there is also a […]

The Tamron Trinity

Boldly Going Where No Company has gone before… It always gives me pause when I stop to consider the fact that Tamron introduced its 24-70mm F/2.8 VC lens in February of 2012 and that no company has managed to produce a direct competitor yet.  It was the first of its […]

Tamron SP 15-30mm F/2.8 Di VC USD Review

Every year there are a select number of lens announcements that I find personally exciting.  I reviewed no less than 15 lenses last year, and this is the fifth already this year, so a lot of gear passes through my hands.  Not every lens has the same capacity to excite […]
