Tamron 35-150mm F/2.8-4 Di VC OSD Lens for Nikon F is a relatively compact, lightweight design for general use. The optical design employs both low dispersion glass and aspherical elements, which help to reduce chromatic and spherical aberrations throughout the zoom range for improved clarity and sharpness. A BBAR coating has also been applied and helps to reduce flare and ghosting for improved color and contrast when working in strong lighting conditions.

Complementing the optics, an Optimized Silent Drive AF motor realizes near-silent, fast focusing performance while a Vibration Compensation system minimizes the appearance of camera shake for sharper handheld shooting. Additionally, the lens features a moisture-resistant construction along with a front fluorine coating to support working in harsh weather conditions.

Features of the Tamron 35-150mm F/2.8-4 Di VC OSD Lens for Nikon F

  • Wide to portrait-length zoom is designed for EF-format Canon full frame cameras, however, can also be used with EF-s crop sensor models where it provides a 56-240mm.
  • Bright f/2.8-4 maximum aperture range suits working in available light conditions and also offers a depth of field control for isolating subject matter.
  • Low Dispersion (LD) glass elements help to minimize chromatic aberrations in order to achieve greater clarity with reduced colour fringing.
  • Aspherical elements correct for spherical and comatic aberrations, as well as distortion, for consistent edge-to-edge sharpness and illumination throughout the zoom range, as well as a reduction of sagittal comatic flare.
  • Optimized Silent Drive (OSD) motor, along with a Dual Micro-Processing Unit (MPU) system, realizes notably quiet, fast, and precise autofocus performance and the lens offers a 1.5′ minimum focusing distance throughout the zoom range for working with close-up subjects.
  • VC (Vibration Compensation) image stabilization is incorporated into the lens’ design to minimize the appearance of camera shake for sharper handheld shooting in low-light conditions.

The 35-150mm F/2.8-4 extends photographic expression in unprecedented fashion

Express your creativity as a portrait photographer by pursuing every dimension from dramatic close-up expressions to delicate movements. We want you to enjoy portrait shooting as you intend, and that is the sentiment we poured into this lens. The Model A043 offers a zoom ratio of nearly 4.3x, with focal lengths ranging from 35mm at the wide end to 150mm at the telephoto end.

And if a more structured approach better suits you, you’ll find scale markers that indicate the popular focal length settings for portrait photography (ref. right animation). The versatile zoom range incorporates the 85mm focal length (often regarded as optimum for portrait shooting) and covers everything from full-body shots that include the surrounding area to sharp head-and-shoulders shots. With this single lens you can make the most of every moment you spend with any subject.

The balance between high resolution and brilliant bokeh accentuates any subject

The Model A043 features a specialized optical formula that employs three LD (Low Dispersion) and three hybrid aspherical lens elements to thoroughly control optical aberrations. Tamron’s proprietary anti-reflecting BBAR Coating significantly reduces ghosting and flare that might otherwise occur under backlight conditions, where portraits are often shot. The result provides the advanced levels of sharpness and contrast that today’s high resolution 50+ megapixel DSLRs require.

Tamron has also balanced MTF performance to produce exceptional resolving power across the entire zoom range and deliver premium optical performance. Furthermore, Tamron has combined its many years of expertise in producing soft, beautiful bokeh defocus blur with the latest simulation technologies. As a result, the contrast between in-focus areas rendered accurately down to the fine details and backgrounds that gently blend into the scene produces a single high quality image. Enjoy this excellent, inspired performance for portraits, landscapes, travel, family snapshots and more across a wide range of photography subjects.

Outstanding AF performance and vibration compensation for crisp, sharp images

The Model A043 includes Tamron’s exclusive Dual MPU system: a dedicated micro-processing unit for vibration compensation, and separate microprocessor for lens system control, including AF. Each MPU has a DSP (Digital Signal Processing) block for high speed signal processing that combines reliable vibration compensation with exceptional AF performance. The result effectively reduces focus deviations and camera shake and is especially valuable in low-light conditions.

AF with Optimized Silent Drive quietly tracks constantly moving subjects with ease

The AF drive employs a newly developed OSD (Optimized Silent Drive) to ensure silent operation. Operating noise has been appreciably reduced thanks to a revamped and optimized AF unit.
Photographers and subjects can converse and enjoy the mood of the moment while devoting their efforts to portrait shooting without noisy intermittent distractions. Also, the precision and speed of autofocusing are increased to ensure accurate focus even when tracking constantly moving subjects.

VC (Vibration Compensation) counteracts camera shake and expands opportunities

The Model A043 is equipped with Tamron’s legendary VC that achieves compensation equivalent to 5 stops* (CIPA standards) to effectively reduce the effects of camera shake. This is particularly beneficial when shooting at the shake-prone telephoto end and when shooting at slower shutter speeds. VC ensures that subjects will be faithfully captured down to the fine details even when shooting in low-light environments, such as twilight or indoors, without flash.

MOD of 0.45m (17.7 in) adds close-up composition to your zoom repertoire

In addition to a wide range of focal lengths, the Model A043 provides an MOD of 0.45m (17.7 in) across the entire zoom range. This allows you to approach the subject close-up even when shooting at the telephoto end, which adds new possibilities to portrait composition. By varying the distance between you and the subject, you can intensify close communication with the subject, a crucial aspect of portrait photography. Even when shooting indoors where movement is restricted, you will be able to find just the right shooting position and angle. Experience the rich variation in the world of close-up photography of eyes, skin texture and other points of focus that becomes possible as you move nearer to the subject.
