About Tamron

Tamron is a Japanese company that specializes in the design and manufacture of photographic lenses, optical components, and various other optical products. Founded in 1950, Tamron has a long history of producing high-quality lenses for a wide range of cameras, including DSLRs, mirrorless cameras, and other imaging devices. The company is known for its innovative lens designs and its commitment to providing affordable yet excellent optical products.

Introducing  new F/1.8 fast-aperture fixed focal length lenses with superior optical performance and unprecedented close-focusing capability integrated with VC (Vibration Compensation).

The New SP Series for A New Era of DSLR Cameras

Technologically advanced camera systems with a high pixel density drive the SP Series lenses to perform at their best. Superior optical performance is standard and enhanced by improvements in functionality, handling, and external design.

  • A 45mm is capable of remarkable resolving power and sharp images, while the integration of VC into a fast standard prime lens for full-frame DSLR cameras is an industry-first*.
  • This lens delivers crisp and tack-sharp images at any setting from F/1.8 full-open aperture.Tamron 45mm Di VC USD For Nikon Specifications-fig 5

Innovative and Unique Standard Lenses with F/1.8 Fast Aperture

State-of-the-art design and engineering technologies backed by manufacturing know-how culminate in revolutionary 35mm and 45mm lenses.

High Performance at F/1.8 Full Aperture

The open aperture is set to F/1.8 with optimized critical properties at a higher level: superb optical performance coupled with a VC system, a shorter MOD, and a well-balanced form factor. Rigorous simulation processes performed throughout the design phase are materialized in distinguished resolving power and beautifully tuned background blur, a prominent feature of a fast-aperture, full-frame compliant optic.

  • Molded Glass Aspherical Elements
    Two molded glass aspherical elements in both the 35mm and 45mm lenses deliver plenty of field curvature. These elements ensure superb focusing uniformity over the entire field by compensating for spherical and comatic aberrations.
  • LD (Low Dispersion) Glass and XLD (eXtra Low Dispersion) Glass
    To further compensate for chromatic aberrations, both lenses use an LD element and the 35mm lens combines one LD with an XLD element. These elements help deliver crisp, clear images without color fringing.
  • Optimal Relative Illumination
    The two new SP lenses deliver exceptionally uniform illumination levels across the image field to avoid non-linear patterns or fall-off toward corners.
  • eBAND and BBAR Coating
    • eBAND (Extended Bandwidth and Angular-Dependency) Coating and BBAR (Broad-Band Anti-Reflection) Coating both provide superior anti-reflection properties. These technologies have been adapted to each lens and provide crystal clear images by suppressing element surface reflections that lead to ghosting and flare.
    • eBAND Coating is a nano-structured layer deployed on the critical element surface. In addition to regular anti-reflection coatings, eBAND Coating offers higher transmissivity and a significant improvement in anti-reflection characteristics against angulated incident rays.

Vibration CompensationIntegration, Setting Itself Apart

Tamron 45mm Di VC USD For Nikon Specifications-fig 8

VC deployed on fast-aperture lenses dramatically enhances the freedom of hand-held shooting under lime light or dim room light conditions by eliminating minute camera shake. In particular, cameras with high-pixel density imagers tend to pick up subtle vibrations, resulting in degradation of image quality. VC is an excellent attribute to acquire inherent high-fidelity images. 45mm is the very first lens that employs the VC functionality among the fast standard fixed focal lenses in full-frame format

  • USD (Ultrasonic Silent Drive) Autofocusing
    The USD actuator converts ultrasonic waves into rotational motion that delivers autofocus with responsiveness, accuracy, and speed without so much as a whisper. The photographer can easily use manual focus at any point while the AR system is operating while having a rumble or a swine
  • Fluorine Coating
    Developed for industrial optics, fluorine coating offers long-lasting oil and water resistance to the lens. Moisture and smudges wipe away, making it easy to keep your lens clean.
  • Moisture-Resistant Construction Constructed to prevent moisture from entering the internal mechanisms of the lens new SP line is sealed to allow photographers to shoot outdoors in adverse conditions.Tamron 45mm Di VC USD For Nikon Specifications-fig 9

Get Closer than Ever Before

  • Move in closer to subjects with the new Tamron lenses. New MOD specs let photographers shoot at close range, opening a new world of creative opportunities for composition while maintaining image quality.
  • Both the SP 35mm (MOD: 0.2m) and the SP 45mm (MOD: 0.29m) offer best-in-class close focusing.
  • A floating system design feature seamlessly optimizes image quality by shifting elements relative to the focus group in close shooting situations. Of the two, the 35mm lens offers unique opportunities enabling shooting like a wide-angle macro lens.
