Versatile zoom range and breathtaking image quality

The world's first F2 all-in-one full-frame mirrorless travel zoom lens

From expansive scenery to magnificent cityscapes—you can capture it all. We created a fast-aperture zoom lens ideal for the creation of art while traveling to take photos. The Tamron 35-150mm F/2-2.8 Di III VXD (Model A058) is a high resolution travel zoom lens that covers everything from the 35mm wide angle to the 150mm telephoto focal length, the first zoom lens achieving an aperture of F2 at the wide angle end for full-frame mirrorless cameras. This versatile all-in-one zoom enables photography of beautiful natural scenery, urban landscapes, impressive buildings, restaurant interiors, city night views and more while traveling, without having to change lenses—or changing your distance from the subject when composing. It has a groundbreaking fast-aperture and utilizes the linear motor focus mechanism VXD (Voice-coil eXtreme-torque Drive), thereby achieving high speed, high precision autofocusing. The innovative lens design enabled us to greatly improve the lens's grip and functionality and includes a Connector Port on the lens barrel. The port enables users to apply the TAMRON Lens Utility™, developed in-house, to easily customize functions and to update firmware. The 35-150mm F2-2.8 allows photographers to shoot at the common focal lengths frequently used when creating art while traveling, from the wide angle to normal, semi-telephoto, and telephoto—and anything in between. This empowers you to clearly capture the scenes as you envision them with its overwhelming resolving power and amazing flexibility.

Create beautiful, soft bokeh with the large, best-in-class F2-2.8 aperture

The 35-150mm F2-2.8 features an optimal combination of four LD (Low Dispersion) lens elements that subdue aberrations, and three extraordinary GM (Glass Molded Aspherical) lens elements. Together they assure high optical performance that enhances your ability to capture all the incredible scenery you encounter while traveling. TAMRON has achieved a maximum aperture of F2 at the wide-angle end and F2.8 at the telephoto end, enabling you to achieve beautiful, soft bokeh across the entire zoom range. The lens also makes it possible to capture subjects clearly in more situations. The lens's fast maximum aperture helps you control camera movement by permitting a higher shutter speed, or when trying to reduce noise by choosing a low ISO. Even when used with the latest mirrorless cameras that require high resolution performance, images are sharp edge-to-edge and from center to every corner, across the entire frame of the photo.

The Tamron 35-150mm F/2-2.8 Di III VXD (Model A058) a single lens that replaces all

This zoom lens covers everything from the 35mm wide angle to 150mm telephoto, including all the commonly used focal lengths, so it’s very handy for travel because it can replace several single lenses. Seamlessly take photos without switching lenses in various situations. Change to an 85mm semi-telephoto angle of view, focus on a faraway subject at 150mm, and make full use of the 35mm and 50mm focal lengths. Change composition without changing your distance from the subject. You can use just this one lens to capture a wide range of photos while traveling, from landscapes to snapshots and portraits. Our design goal was portability and compact design while achieving a spectacular specification of F2-2.8 with a 4.3x zoom ratio.

Capture sharp, crisp images with high speed and high precision autofocus

The autofocus drive employs the VXD linear motor focus mechanism. You can easily achieve focus from the MOD (Minimum Object Distance) to infinity, even at the maximum F2 aperture, thanks to the speed and precision of this highly accurate autofocus system. Focus tracking is also extremely precise so you can capture sudden movements by your subject. The linear motor also suppresses drive noise and vibrations during focusing, making it ideal for shooting both still photos and video in environments that demand quietness.

TAMRON Lens Utility expands the possibilities of still photography and video shooting

The 35-150mm F2-2.8 zoom is compatible with the dedicated TAMRON Lens Utility software developed in-house by TAMRON that empowers users to easily update the lens to the latest firmware without going through the camera, and also includes functions to support focusing operations and other actions when shooting still images or video. By utilizing a wide range of functions, users can expand the breadth of expression in still images and video. For example, A-B Focus allows users to limit focusing to two pre-set focus points, shifting focus from one subject to another with just a click of the Focus Set Button. Users can also choose between Linear and Non-linear, which affects how the focus shifts during manual focusing.

Achieve stellar close-up photos

The Tamron 35-150mm F/2-2.8 Di III VXD boasts the ability to take closeup photographs extremely close to the subject. At the 35mm wide-angle end, the MOD is 0.33m (13 in), achieving a maximum magnification ratio of 1:5.7. To further accentuate the subject and separate it visually from its surroundings you can create a greatly blurred background using the large F2-2.8 maximum aperture. You can also take unique and impressive photos, including overhead shots of food and close-ups of parts of small objects, flowers, or other subject details.

NOTE: Important information when assigning functions from the camera body (for Nikon Z Mount) A phenomenon occurs where, depending on the settings configured on the camera body, the numbers displayed on the camera fluctuate significantly and unexpectedly when aperture, ISO or exposure functions have been assigned to the focusing ring (the control ring on Nikon Z mount). This is due to the specifications of this lens and is not a malfunction. For this reason, we recommend that aperture, ISO, and exposure functions are operated via the dials and/or buttons on the camera body.
