New Concept Portrait Zoom that's Ideal for Travel, too!
Photographers everywhere, especially those who enjoy photographing people, can add wider range to their creative expression with the new Model A043 that extends from 35mm to 150mm and offers a fast F/2.8 aperture at the wide-angle end while maintaining a bright F/4 at the telephoto end. The zoom range incorporates the 85mm focal length (often regarded as optimum for portrait shooting) and covers everything from full-body shots that include the surrounding environment to head-and-shoulders shots that stand out from a natural defocused "bokeh" background for which Tamron is renowned. The compact Model A043 is designed for fast handling and easy transport, measuring only 4.9 in long and perfectly balanced. For the discerning travel photographer who wants to pack light while maintaining excellent image quality, the new 35-150mm zoom pairs perfectly with Tamron's 17-35mm F/2.8-4 Di OSD (Model A037) wide-angle zoom. The two lenses together cover 17mm to 150mm affording creative and versatile capture of landscape, street scenes, architectural details, food, street portraits and more, at a total weight of just 44.1 oz. with fast F/2.8 at the wide ends and F/4 at the tele end of each.

High quality, flexibility and broad creative expression
For the first time, a dedicated portrait lens that allows you to zoom through various composition options as creative ideas zoom through your head. The 35-150mm F/2.8-4 Di VC OSD (Model A043) zoom lens is based on the new concept of allowing you to concentrate on a wide range of portrait compositions without the interruption of pausing to change lenses. There are so many options. Set the focal length in the 85mm that is ideal for head and shoulder portraiture, or zoom out to 35mm at the wide end, or zoom in to 150mm at the telephoto end. From full body shots to a close-up of facial expressions, you can capture the subject without changing your position or disturbing your flow. Adding to the efficiency of this lens, scale marks on the lens barrel indicate common focal length settings for portrait shooting. The fast F-stop offers F/2.8 at the wide end while maintaining a bright F/4 at the telephoto end. In addition, the Model A043 provides an MOD (Minimum Object Distance) of 0.45m (17.7 in) across the entire zoom range allowing you to approach the subject close-up, which adds new possibilities to portrait composition. This marks the birth of a portrait zoom lens that lets you enjoy shooting subjects with greater freedom and endless possibilities. High quality, flexibility and broad creative expression—you can have them all with Tamron’s new portrait zoom lens.
The balance between high resolution and brilliant bokeh accentuates any subject
The Model A043 features a specialized optical formula that employs LD (Low Dispersion) and hybrid aspherical lens elements to thoroughly control optical aberrations. Tamron’s proprietary anti-reflecting BBAR* Coating significantly reduces ghosting and flare that might otherwise occur under backlight conditions where portraits are often shot. The result provides the advanced levels of sharpness and contrast that today’s high resolution 50+ megapixel DSLRs require. Furthermore, Tamron has combined its many years of expertise in producing soft, beautiful bokeh defocus blur with the latest simulation technologies. As a result, the contrast between in-focus areas rendered accurately down to the fine details and backgrounds that gently blend into the scene produces a single high-quality image.
Versatility beyond portraiture
This lightweight, compact and highly mobile lens provides the high quality optical performance and focal lengths necessary to make it not only the perfect portrait lens, but also an excellent travel lens ideal for landscapes, street photography, food and more.
Outstanding AF performance and vibration compensation for crisp, sharp images
For fast and steady operation, this exciting zoom incorporates Tamron’s Dual MPU** system, which consists of a dedicated AF lens control MPU and dedicated vibration compensation MPU to achieve the perfect balance between AF performance and effective vibration compensation. This ensures accurate focus even in scenes with continually moving subjects or under low light conditions.
