If the 35-150mm F2-2.8 Di III VXD sounds familiar it should. Tamron already makes this lens in Sony E mount.

Key features

  • The world’s first F2-2.8 fast-aperture zoom lens
  • Versatile zoom range provides seamless shooting from wide-angle 35mm to telephoto 150mm
  • Outstanding optical performance throughout the zoom range
  • Fast, quiet VXD linear motor mechanism for high-speed and high-precision autofocus
  • Expanded versatility with excellent close-range shooting performance
  • TAMRON Lens UtilityTM expands the possibilities of still photography and video shooting
  • Moisture-Resistant Construction, Fluorine Coating, and Hood Locking Mechanism for greater convenience

The lens incorporates the VXD (Voice-coil eXtreme-torque Drive) linear motor focus mechanism, which is claimed to provide very high-speed and high-precision autofocus for a fast-aperture lens. It also incorporates a new design with the aim of enhancing operability and ergonomics.

The 35-150mm F2-2.8 Di III VXD is planned to be launched in the northern hemisphere fall this year. While there is no current indication of pricing, the Tamron 35-150mm f/2-2.8 Di III VXD Lens for Sony E retails for $1,899 USD, so it is safe to assume the Nikon Z mount version will also be a similar price.

This lens is developed, manufactured, and sold under the license agreement with Nikon Corporation.
