    In Europe: Tamron 35 1.8 for euro 962,00, Sigma 35 1.4 ART for euro 630,00… something is wrong.

      Sigmas are quite heavy. Tamron lighter, almost nikon weight

    not sure where you got the info about B&H shipping, but I ordered mine on 09-09-15, and at the time it said it will ship on 09-28-2015. Right now my order is “pending” and “In stock, order sent to warehouse”, but when called B&H – machine says they are on vacation till Oct.7th.

    So not shipping at all for me. If I knew I would pre-order from Amazon…

    • Yeah, and you notice how the “cancel order” link has gone away now too. Sort of like it’s been charged to your account, and sitting in the warehouse until Wednesday. I mean, I love B&H but it should be listed as out of stock until they get back from holiday.

      • nwcs

        It’s in stock. You just can’t order it now as they suspend ordering. They are always very clear about their closing times and when you have to order to guarantee shipping.

        • MJ

          I was able to order on Sept.9th – it said it will ship on the 28th, and it didn’t. Even invoice says it will start shipping on the 28th. My card was charged and Lens wasn’t shipped.
          I know they are pretty clear about holidays and such, but they weren’t this time. If I knew I’ll get screwed I would order from Amazon.

    European pricing is absolutely idiotic. It’s funny to see how Tamron tries its best to price itself out of the market.

  • Davis5

    I see a future for painful tamron in Europe … cost much more ‘of 35art (I of d800 and definitely goes VERY good!)

  • Hardcore_Fanboy

    a F1.8-s costs so much – can you make photos trough the walls or something??

  • nwcs

    I wish Tamron (or Sigma) would come out with a small, sharp (wide open), light, and awesome 35 f2 lens. Even 35 f2.8 if needed.

    • preston

      I’m not really sure that’s realistic at f/2. The Tamron is basically that and could be only a little smaller by removing the stabilization. Now, there is a small, sharp, awesome 35 f/2.8 lens made by Sony for the A7 series, but it is $800. Also, maybe it could be designed smaller due to the much shorter flange distance of the mirrorless body at this focal length?

      • nwcs

        Still, it seems like all these f1.8 lenses are much much larger than they *could* be with a different balance/mix of priorities in lens design. That’s why I was thinking of f2.8 as an option, too.

        • You have a point, from preliminary reports it seems these Tamrons have prioritized corner IQ a bit more than most folks may need.

          But again, if you don’t care about corners as much, and just want to save weight, the existing Nikon 35 f/2 is fantastic and ultralight. Gorgeous sunstars for landscape photography, too!

          • nwcs

            I’ve thought about that but the days of AF for that are numbered. Eventually Nikon will remove in camera motors from everything but the Dx line.

            • By the time that happens, you will have bought into a whole different system anyways I suspect. Meanwhile you can go on Ebay right now, snipe a super good deal on an existing AF-D lens, and then sell it for almost no loss in a year or three. Just my two cents.

    • vriesk

      If you can live without autofocus, Voigtlander Ultron 40mm f/2 SL-II might be what you need. Super-tiny and plenty sharp.

      • nwcs

        I’ve thought about that. I’d prefer AF and a 35mm view but that is closer to what I was thinking of.

        • Sad that CVoigtlander dont have AF, but honestly it would be too much pleasure! The 40mm f2 still is my favorite lens of alltime for travelling. For lighter and smaller you will have to look at the fuji X100series 😉

    • This existing Tamron lens, by today’s standards, is already considered small and light enough to please most photographers… The era of super-ultralight f/2.8 primes has moved to the likes of Sony mirrorless, it seems.

      Of course, you could just get the existing Nikon 35 f/2 if you’re that bent on an ultralight 35; it’s only ~3 oz heavier than the Sony, and a stop faster.

    • BVS

      Why not just get the Nikon 35/1.8 and stop down to 2.8? It’s relatively light (only 3oz more than the Ultron or Nikon 35/1.8 DX), you’d have f/1.8 if you ever needed it, and it’s probably sharper at 2.8 than a lens starting at 2.8 would be.

      • nwcs

        I had the 35 1.8fx. It was good but I am thinking of something smaller physically.

    • true

      m43 has small lenses

    • Captain Megaton

      Well f/2.8 *is* needed, and you also need to get rid of the pesky mirror. The lens you wish already exists, it’s Sony FE 35mm F2.8 ZA.

  • If anybody notices a good test for coma, vignetting, and field curvature in the environment of astro-landscape photography, especially for the 35, do let me know! 😀

    • vcize

      I’m sure lenstip will be out with it soon.

  • Aldo

    It would be cool if you could fix the comment section admin (mobile site) … the lead comments are so close to the edge it asphyxiates my eyes.

    • If I only knew how to fix it… I will try to contact the mobile theme provider.

      • Aldo

        Tell him it has a breathing problem.. like the nikkor 70-200 2.8 vr2
