Tamron has announced three new lenses are in development and expected to be released the middle of 2019: a 35-150mm f2.8-4 Di VC OSD, an SP 35mm f1.4 Di USD, and an E-mount 17-28mm f2.8 Di III RXD.
The 35-150mm f2.8-4 Di VC OSD is a versatile zoom lens with a bright aperture throughout the lens, closing only by a stop to f4 at the telephoto end. The lens has a minimum object distance (MOD) of 45 centimeters throughout the lens, and will be stabilized by Tamron’s Vibration Control (VC) technology. The SP 35mm f1.4 Di USD will be a sharp, versatile focal length with a bright f1.4 aperture to fit into Tamron’s SP primes linup.
Finally, the 17-28mm f2.8 Di III RXD will be a relatively compact, wide-angle bright zoom for Sony’s E-mount. With a filter thread of only 67mm, the lens has a minimum object distance of 19 centimeters throughout the range, and will have fast and quiet autofocus capabilities for stills or video thanks to the RXD (Rapid eXtra-silent stepping Drive) focus drive.
