The Tamron 24mm F/2.8 Di III OSD M1:2 Lens FE Mount strikes a balance between gorgeous image rendering and superior operation for the perfect general-purpose wide-angle lens.
For outstanding performance, the lens is constructed using special glass materials including LD (Low Dispersion) and GM (Glass Molded Aspherical) lens elements effectively arranged to quash aberrations. And Tamron’s legendary BBAR (Broad-Band Anti-Reflection) Coating successfully reduces ghosting and flare.
Moisture-Resistant Construction and Fluorine Coating on the front element ensures easy maintenance and fingerprint removal.
Tamron’s new fixed focal lenses are compatible with many of the advanced features that are specific to mirrorless cameras. This includes:
*Features vary by camera. Please consult your camera’s instruction manual for details.
|LD (Low Dispersion) Elements||GM (glass-molded aspherical) Elements|
|BBAR (Broad-Band Anti-Reflection) Coating||2:1 Close Focus|
Superb high-resolution performance that matches the latest high-resolution image sensors achieved thanks to the sophisticated optical formula created with the latest lens design technologies. Optimal arrangement of LD (Low Dispersion) and GM (glass-molded aspherical) lens elements results in exceptionally high rendering performance from edge to edge, while minor distortions sometimes common in wide-angle lenses are corrected using in-camera functions.
Additionally, Tamron’s legendary BBAR (Broad-Band Anti-Reflection) Coating effectively reduces ghosting and flare.
With excellent resolving power achieved through uncompromising optical performance and camera-based distortion correction, this lens can be used with complete confidence for a wide range of applications from casual family snaps to serious professional photography.
Excellent minimum close focus of only 0.12m results in a maximum magnification ratio of 1:2 so you can fill the frame, even when shooting small objects. You’ll never again be frustrated because you cannot get close to an object while shooting.
This remarkable performance allows the creation of compositions that exploit the dramatic perspective by keeping your main subject close in the foreground. With a fast F/2.8 aperture you can leverage the power of a beautifully blurred background bokeh as well.
With dramatic closeup shooting performance for full-frame lenses, this lens unleashes an unprecedented level of shooting freedom.
The AF drive system employs an OSD to ensure quiet operation.
In comparison to conventional AF types with built-in DC motors, Tamron was able to greatly reduce the drive noise as well as vastly improve AF performance and speed. The lower ambient noise level is sure to be appreciated by video shooters.
Overall, this fixed focal lens series provides superlative AF precision for exact focus even when shooting moving subjects, as well as outstanding accuracy and tracking capability.
Additionally, this fixed focal series supports various AF features offered by certain Sony cameras, including Fast Hybrid AF, Eye AF, and Direct Manual Focus (DMF) to ensure a pleasant shooting experience.
|64mm overall length||Lightweight|
|Internal Focus||67mm Filter Thread|
Designed to match lightweight, full-frame mirrorless cameras. This lens sports an overall length of just 64mm (2.5 in). Comfortable, portable, highly maneuverable and amazingly easy to use and compose.
Because the overall length does not change when focusing, you can get as close to an object as you need to without fear of accidentally bumping the front element.
Released together with the 20mm F/2.8 Di III OSD M1:2 (Model F050), and the 35mm F/2.8 Di III OSD M1:2 (Model F053), this lens series features the same 67mm filter diameter as Tamron’s zoom lenses for full-frame mirrorless cameras to significantly reduce cost and packing space when working with PL, ND and other filters. Even the front lens caps are the same size, eliminating the hassle of sorting caps when switching lenses.
Weighing in at only 215g this lens is exceptionally light, allowing photographers to enjoy shooting comfortably without hesitating about whether to carry the lens.
Environmental seals are located at the lens mount area and other critical locations to prevent infiltration of moisture and/or rain drops and afford Moisture-Resistant Construction. This feature provides an additional layer of protection when shooting outdoors under adverse weather conditions.
Also, the front surface of the lens element is coated with a protective fluorine compound that has excellent water- and oil-repellant qualities. The lens surface is easier to wipe clean and is less vulnerable to the damaging effects of dirt, moisture or oily fingerprints, allowing for much easier maintenance.
