    Thanks for the heads up!

    Adoroma links says: “No exact matches were found for tamron sp 45mm f 1.8 di vc usd lens?kbid63773”

  • Michiel953

    That 45 looks interesting. But I’ve got my focal lengths covered by the 1.4G primes.

    • Vince Vinnyp

      I’ve got the Sigma art 35mm 1.4, which is amazing, but I also have the Tamron 35mm 1.8 which fills a niche. It’s a 1.8 with VC very sharp, almost a macro means it’s lighter and more versatile than the Sigma for travel. Handheld it literally is the best lens out there and can get shots no other lens can get.

      • Michiel953

        Appreciate the input, but do I need more lenses?


      • Michiel953

        P.s.: the 35/1.4G is sharp enough and renders beautifully. It’s my allround lens. The next ine up is the 58 (now also in mf VC guise), so the 45 would serve a purpose…

        • Vince Vinnyp

          I agree the 1.4g is a really good lens I had it before the Sigma, The Nikkor is also weather sealed like the Tamron.

        Hi Vince,
        What body you use ?
        Recently sold my Sigma 35 ART due to foucs inconsistency and the green color rendering issues ( mentioned in YouTube by Matt Ganger ).
        And bought the Zeiss Milvus 35/1.4 which outperform the Sigma by any measure.
        Now I am looking for an 35mm For Nikon with AF seems like the Tamron is the Best Buy.
        Since I know the Sigam how the Tamron compares to it ?

        • Vince Vinnyp

          Hi I have D810s and D5s (850 from Thursday)) but the Sigma mostly gets used on the 810s. I haven’t noticed any problems with colour rendering, if I use it alongside my Nikkor lenses then the profile works across them all. The only focus issue, I have, is with the D5s and it not being able able to use the outer points as cross sensors but I needed to test to find that. The Tamron together with all non Nikkor AF-S lenses (And some AF-s) suffers from this. I have not had the Tamron as long as the Sigma it’s a travel/museum lens but when I shot it next to the Sigma from F2.5 up they are both stellar but the Sigma has the edge if I am being hyper critical.

          • Yair

            Thanks !
            That is what I feared from 🙂
            I use the 35 mm AF mostly to shoot in doors where I need all AF points.
            I will stick to Nikon.
            FYI, watch Matt Ganger video on the 35 ART it shows the green color rendering problem very clearly.
            It is on all the copies of the 35 ART i tested. ( 3 samples on the from batch 2 years ago)
            It is only an issue when you shot landscape with greeeny in them.
            The copies I tested and Matt video are about two years old , they might fixed it.
            Companies don’t tend report when fixing issues like that 🙂
            Thanks again!

      I see you like the middle of the road.

  • Spy Black

    …now let’s see them take $100 off the 85mm f/1.8…

  • scott800

    i have all three tamron VC lenses and use them over my nikon 1.4 G’s most of the time. besides being very sharp, the VC means i usually never need a tripod. The VC is much better than Nikons own VR; 1/4 second shots are no problem. the 35mm and the 85mm live on my wedding cameras most of the year. I don’t use the 45mm as much, but highly recommend all three for all around use. The 45 and 35 double as macro (sort of) lenses for ring, food and small detail shots. if the 35 and 85 had the same discount, i’d buy a spare of each! https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/2e4f4aba689eabaeb93867b1c202dfe5c540ee05c3531fd69705ab8820136d59.png

  • Fly Moon

    Mail-in rebate? Are people still use that?

    • TwoStrayCats

      Yes, we do.

      • Fly Moon

        Is it actual mail?

    • TurtleCat

      Yes, because it adds friction to the user making it more likely they’ll skip the rebate at best or delay redeeming it at worst. Saves a company a lot of money.

      • Fly Moon

        That’s exactly my own experience with it. I forgot to submit a couple over the years.

        • TurtleCat

          Mine, too. That’s how I know 🙂

      • ToastyFlake

        It also adds friction making it more likely people like me won’t buy.

        • TurtleCat

          I’d guess most people don’t look beyond the “$xxx” off sign.

  • sickheadache

    Dear Tamron…Please refund the 100 and 30 dollars to all who paid Full Prices. Thanks Tamron I know you will do the right thing. (sarcasm)

  • Albert

    I have the Tamron 35 and it practically lives on my D750. It is very sharp wide open, fast focus, and extremely close focus allowing for detail shots you normally need a macro for.


    For street, travel or event photography, it is peerless.

  • MSC

    I am thinking of getting the Tamron 45 1.8 for low light street photography, but if it has trouble focusing in low light it would not be very useful. In that case, I will stick with the Nikkor 50mm 1.8g on my Nikon d750. Any thoughts on this?

    • Albert

      The Tamron 35 on my D750 can lock focus on things too dark for me to see in the viewfinder.

  • Neopulse

    If I ever decide to get again a Nikon body, I know I’d be buying some of these Tamron lenses especially the 45mm & 85mm lenses.
