Is This the Best Lens Available Today?

We are living in an age of incredible lenses that offer combinations of versatility, performance, and image quality that were unimaginable even just a decade ago. One lens makes a strong case for the best combination of those aforementioned factors, however, and it is from a manufacturer you might not expect. 

Tamron has recently established themselves as a company that creates affordable yet high-quality lenses. However, they have also branched out into more extreme designs, and perhaps the most emblematic example of that latter trend is the 35-150mm f/2-2.8 Di III VXD, which Stefan Malloch reviews here. It was not until just a few years ago that a full frame zoom lens with a maximum aperture wider than f/2.8 was even a remote possibility, but since the introduction of the Canon RF 28-70mm f/2L, we have seen a slow increase in these more extreme designs that blur the line between prime and zoom. Tamron’s 35-150mm f/2-2.8 provides arguably even more versatility by offering a huge range of common focal lengths, and it does so at an impressively affordable price considering all the lenses it replaces. Check out the video above for Malloch’s full thoughts.
