Tamron Meets Christian Altengarten

"The benefits of using a fixed focal lens is the clarity, the sharpness, and of course the beautiful bokeh."
- Christian Altengarten

The New SP Series
for a New Era of DSLR Cameras

The SP Series lenses have been technologically redefined from the core to achieve superior optical performance — including new functionality, handling, and a smart, physical design — to bring out the potential of today’s advanced camera systems that offer high pixel density.

Innovative and Unique Standard Lenses with F/1.8 Fast Aperture

State-of-the-art design and engineering technologies backed by manufacturing know-how culminate in revolutionary 35mm and 45mm lenses.

Get Closer than Ever Before

Move in closer to subjects with the new Tamron lenses. The MOD (Minimum Object Distance) spec enables photographers shoot at close range, opening a new world of creative opportunities for composition while maintaining image quality at its best.

Vibration Compensation in a Standard Lens

Though an image stabilization system is uncommon in a standard lens, Tamron’s VC system is a critical feature in the new SP line. The smaller pixel size of higher pixel count cameras led us to research the demands on lenses, and the VC system has proven its ability to maximize the performance of the camera.

High Performance Features behind Every Design Aesthetic

Our attention to every engineering detail has yielded the most advanced optical and electro-mechanical design featured in the new Tamron SP Series, establishing a new benchmark for high performance and visual elegance.

The cornerstone of our design philosophy is human touch, assimilating graceful lines that are soft to the touch and easy to handle. Switches are larger and reconfigured for smoother torque and the typeface is redesigned for intuitive legibility.
