Tamron develops ‘world first’ f/2 zoom for Nikon Z

Posted on Aug 8, 2023

Third-party lens manufacturer Tamron has announced a 35-150mm f/2-2.8 Di III VXD lens for Nikon’s Z mount. With a range suited to portrait and travel photography – enabling the capture of dramatic vistas at 35mm and dynamic close-ups at 150mm – it’s the world’s first zoom for Nikon’s mirrorless range that offers a maximum wide-open aperture of f/2.

A new design offers improved operability and comfortable ergonomics, while the incorporation of a VXD (Voice-coil eXtreme-torque Drive) linear motor grants highly precise AF. Topping off the package is a moisture-resistant construction, fluorine coating and hood-locking mechanism. The focal range also suits Nikon users who don’t want to be constantly switching out lenses. Tamron’s latest is expected to land with us some time this autumn at a price yet to be decided.
