Pros:Stabilization,non-excessive cost,sharpness,blurred,construction,lack of fb focus
Cons:Vc a little noisy, a little heavy but not unbalanced
Opinion:I'm testing this lens thoroughly,I have to say that it is very valid,previously I owned the 1.8g nikon as many as two specimens,1.4 hsm sigma,and this tamron does not think them really... the nikon in both cases proved excellent in sharpness but bad in the bokeh that was always too nervous. the sigma was a fb focus ordeal and after months of setting me up. then I took the opportunity from an acquaintance and took the vc in question. all other music, does not miss a beat, you can shoot at a 30th without risking the move, and it is clear the right with a good bokeh almost old mold. very recommended, too underrated. once existed the club of 2.8, today without 1.4 you are nobody. Too bad.. don't hesitate to try it.
Pros:Sharpness, accurate construction, very efficient stabilization
Cons:Weight and excessive bulk for my taste
Opinion:I have this objective for several months now, combining it with the Nikon of the same focal length and brightness, which I prefer to use, because it is much lighter, when I walk and hike. The Tamron is indeed heavy and cumbersome. But it has a commendable optical performance (TF magazine has judged it superior, and not a little, to the mythical 85 1.4 Nikon), being very clear to the edges even to the most open diaphragms (the top is at 5.6). The stabilization, very effective, allows to use relatively slow times. The blur is pleasant, as is the color rendering. My sample was perfectly calibrated as for focusing. Recommended, if weight and size are not a problem.
Opinion:I'm trying this goal by a few days and it is still early to make a judgment. They attracted many positive comments especially the foreign press and Stabilization (quite unusual on a 85mm, indeed I do not know if there is another). rnUn aesthetically pleasing object and well built, I have the chance to try a few days before acquistarlo.rnLe very first impressions are "without infamy and without praise," some uncertainty in the AF 1.8, but right or wrong pictures to take home, but take home even with items that cost less at this level of quality. rnFrancamente not even see all this nitidezza.rnLa definitely positive note is the presence of the stabilizer but I've already seen that, if not used, the better off because the picture gets worse when it is inserted (and makes noise) .rnChiudendo aperture sharpness comes out but already we start from 1.8 .rnTamron, as well as Sigma, invented the Tap-in (like a USB dock) you need to go crazy to microregolarlo, I tried to see cI dare costs and found that in the US are also $ 59 on Amazon but do not you can send and then you have to take it up to € 80 and Amazon.it rotti.rnIo I played around with the chart and micro drive, if just enough ( are already to +5) and if it is not enough to immediately carry indietro.rnPer the rest, even if all the promises and maintains direct competitors much more without costing stabilizer, this is a 1.8 and if we add a bit of images so so coast too (considering the cost of Tap.in) .rnFarò some other around and see a pò.rnUpdate 1: made mocroregolazione room +5, things are better, the sharpness is out and f2, from this point of view, is very good. However, it remains a certain flatness, as also says another recensione.rnUpdate 2 and finally, despite considering it a good lens I decided to bring her back to land the final choice fell on 85 / 1.2 L II, I think this 85 Tamron is still to be taken inconsideration, apart from the 1.2 Canon and of course, being 1.2, is of a different category, this Tammy was the best 85 that it happened to me (but I'm not've come all all)
Opinion:I tested this lens, which also ponder the purchase, however, lacks the magic and nikon lens canon 85.rnla sharpness is incredible, almost like that of the sigma 50 1.4 art, however does not give me the joy sperata.rnsicuramente allows to carry on home photos almost always, af reattivo.rnperò precise and, at the time the I prefer the 135 f2 Canon (canon 85 has a 1.2 af too slow for me). rnse stabilizer I would become necessary a lens to be attached to 135 (for the next 85 hours 1.8) .rnrnrn
Opinion:I only did a few shots and I'm not a pundit expert, I find this lens another success tamron.rnL'efficienza the VC is now known. rnRispetto the nikon 85 G f is the fast equal if not superior, the precise focus on the point chosen, and is virtually free from aberrations which instead on nikon are well presenti.rnUnico drawback: the cost, but if the copy is good and you are not willing to sell it for a long time, it is money well spent.
