The Tamron 35-150mm f/2-2.8 Di III VXD for Sony E is an advanced, flexible all-in-one zoom designed for full-frame Sony cameras. Key features include:
Versatile all-in-one zoom
High-quality optical design
Fast, accurate, and nearly silent autofocus
Durable, weather-resistant build
Flexible All-In-One Zoom. The Tamron 35-150mm f/2-2.8 Di III VXD’s wide to medium-telephoto range and f/2-2.8 maximum wide-open aperture make it great for travel, architectural, and street photography. Its bright maximum aperture gives you excellent depth-of-field control and consistent brightness throughout the zoom range. Using an APS-C camera? This lens will give you 52.5-225mm equivalent focal length.
Advanced Optical Design. The 15-group/21-element optical formula includes 4 low-dispersion elements and 3 glass-molded aspherical elements to give you sharp, high-contrast images across the image plane. Each lens element has a BBAR-G2 coating that combats ghosting, internal reflections, and flare while helping maintain sharpness and color fidelity even in strong light.
VXD Linear-Motor Autofocus System. The 35-150mm’s VXD linear-motor autofocus system tracks even the most fast-moving subjects quickly, accurately, and smoothly, making it ideal for still and video use. This lens is compatible with Sony’s Direct Manual Focus function and Eye AF on cameras with those features, and there’s also full-time manual-focus override for even greater precision.
Durable Construction. You can use this lens in inclement conditions thanks to its moisture-resistant build. The front element’s fluorine coating protects against smearing and debris.
VXD refers to the Voice-coil eXtreme-torque Drive autofocus system. “VXD” being catchier and less unwieldy than “VCETD,” I suppose!
