The Tamron 35-150mm F2-2.8 Di III VXD is a fast tele-zoom for full-frame Sony mirrorless bodies. The lens has a whopping 21 elements and includes aspherical and low-dispersion glass, as well as a ‘BBAR-G2’ coating to reduce flare and ghosting. The focus group is driven by Tamron’s ‘VXD’ linear focus motor.
The 35-150 has a minimum focus distance of 0.33m (13″) and a maximum magnification of 0.18x. The lens is weather-sealed and has a fluorine coating on the front element to repel water and grime. A connector port on the lens barrel allows for firmware updates and feature customizations via Tamron’s Lens Utility software.
