Best DSLR Prime Lens – SP 35mm F/1.8 Di VC USD (Model F012) got well acclaimed by the TIPA jury getting a well appreciating Award Citation. The citation from the Jury goes like this:
At approximately 80mm long and between 450 and 480g in weight (depending on camera system), the full-frame Tamron SP 35mm f/1.8 is constructed with 10 elements in 9 groups. It utilizes two molded glass aspherical elements with one LD (low dispersion) and one XLD (extra low dispersion) element, which greatly reduces chromatic aberration. The lens has excellent resolution from corner to corner, no vignetting even at full aperture, a minimum focusing distance of 0.2 meters and Tamron’s VC (vibration compensation) system (except on the Sony mount version). Full time manual focus override is always available, a great aid when doing close-ups.
TIPA Award 2016 / BEST ENTRY LEVEL DSLR LENS 18-200mm F/3.5-6.3 Di II VC (Model B018)
Similarly the excerpt from the Award Citation of the TIPA Jury for Best Entry Level DSLR Lens: 18-200mm F/3.5-6.3 Di II VC (Model B018) is:
When entry-level photographers start to look beyond their kit lens, or purchase a lens with their camera body, they will be excited to own a lens that offers a wide range of focal length options, and the Tamron 18-200mm fits the bill. Constructed with 16 elements in 14 groups, this lens for APS-C format cameras yields a 35mm equivalent of 28-310mm. It is compact: an average of 95mm (3.8 inches) in its various mounts and is said to be the world’s lightest (400g, 14.1 oz) in its class. Vibration reduction helps users get steady pictures, particularly at the longer focal length ranges.
