Tamron announces the first two lenses in the redefined SP series: the SP 35mm F/1.8 Di VC USD (Model F012) and SP 45mm F/1.8 Di VC USD (Model F013). These lenses are compatible with fullframe DSLR cameras and offer fast apertures and versatile, fixed focal lengths; both can be used with APS-C format cameras as well. The F/1.8 aperture delivers more light to the viewfinder, making it brighter for easier focusing, and more light to the sensor, allowing use even in very dim lighting conditions. The bokeh (background blur) effect delivers smooth and soft transition from the main subject to the background. You can get closer to your subject with ease; superb image capture is ensured throughout the entire range from the closest to normal shooting distances, thanks to Tamron’s proprietary Floating System built into both lenses. The VC (Vibration Compensation) function provides noticeable advantages for handheld shooting by minimizing the adverse effects of camera shake. For further information, visit www.tamron.com.
