The beginning of this year so far has been a really mixed bag in terms of the deals that are available. There have been deals here and there on lenses and cameras that turn your head, and there have been others that really shouldn't register on your radar unless you were already planning to purchase said lens.
The 35mm focal length has long been an incredibly popular focal length choice for photographers of all genres and niches, but particularly of portrait photographers. This has especially been the case in the last several year's thanks to the introduction of great third-party options from companies like Sigma and Tamron which manage to control distortion, fringing, and other optical issues to produce images that are sharp and offer solid contrast.
Tamron has announced the pricing and availability of their latest long-range telephoto zoom lens, a 100-400mm F4.5-6.3 that does include up to 4 stops of vibration compensation. It is being touted as a lightweight, compact lens that is perfect for sports and wildlife photographers.
The 35mm focal length is popular for all sorts of photography niches, from weddings to boudoir to wildlife to landscapes. This makes your choice of 35mm lens extra important because you are likely intending to use it in multiple scenarios.
In our years of reviewing lenses, we've reviewed a whole lot of prime lenses--including every prime lens offering from Tamron. The company has worked on revamping their lineup for the past few years the same way that other lens manufacturers also have.
Nikon is still one of the major camera brands out there, despite their recent financial troubles, so chances are some of you may have a Nikon, and some of you may be thinking about which lenses to upgrade to from your kit lens.
Portrait photography is no doubt of the those niches of photography that attracts many new photographers to the industry, both as hobbyists and professionals--and finding budget friendly portrait lenses can be tough.
In keeping with their continued evolution as a lens manufacturer, Tamron revealed their newly redesigned logo, going with a full-caps design of the company name. The new Tamron Logo is a revamp in the brand’s identity that coincides with Tamron’s revamped SP series of camera lenses – it’s a renewal in their appearance as well
Lens innovation over the past few years has mostly focused on pure image quality. But it's obvious that we're at a point where cameras and lenses both these days are so good that it doesn't matter.
If you are in the market for a budget flash option, the Altura N1001 noted below is a great deal right now at 50% off. Also, Canon's G7X is an incredible compact point and shoot option for those who can't splurge on a RX100 series camera but still want a very capable carry around camera. That is currently 14% off.
It seems to be a never-ending parade of optical formula patents from Tamron, this time it’s a 115mm f/1. 4 VC. This is another fast and unique lens concept from Tamron. Patent Publication No.
