Tamron | Published on 06 Jun 2021 | Written by Dr Jiulin Teng w/ Neosummarizer

Overview

Photo of Tamron 24mm F2.8
  • Very sharp f/2.8
  • 1:2 magnification
  • Very good flare resistance
  • Very slow to focus
  • Very high distortion

Summary

Tamron 24mm f/2.8 is a very sharp lens with good flare resistance and the unique feature of 1:2 magnification. It is pretty slow to focus and also one of the hardest AF lenses to focus manually. Tamron's own zoom lens is an attractive alternative to this prime since it does neither have the focus issues nor the very strong distortion.

The Tamron 24mm f/2.8 is a very sharp lens with good flare resistance and the unique feature of 1:2 magnification. There are two weaknesses which weigh rather heavily in my eyes though. The Tamron 2.8/24's hood is made from plastics, locks safely into place and protects the front of the lens well.

Tamron 24mm f/2.8 Di III OSD M1:2 is one of three low-cost prime lenses. It's designed and sold exclusively for use with Sony mirrorless cameras. The lens is sturdily built, with dust and splash protection. Autofocus isn't as speedy or as quiet as pricier alternatives.
