Tamron has simply introduced the event of their fascinating 35-150mm f/2-2.8 zoom for the Nikon Z system! Though the lens has been out there for Sony since October 2021, it joins the Tamron 70-300mm f/4.5-6.3 because the second official Tamron lens with a Nikon Z mount. Right here’s what we all know.
Specs and Availability
Right now’s announcement is a improvement announcement solely. There’s no phrase but in regards to the official announcement date, however Tamron has mentioned the lens will probably be out there “within the Fall 2023.”
Likewise, we don’t know the official worth, or formal specs, of the lens simply but. For reference, the Sony E model of the lens prices $1900. Nonetheless, it’s doable that the Nikon model will value greater than that – that was true of Tamron’s 70-300mm f/4.5-6.3, with the Sony E model costing $550 and the Nikon Z model costing $700.
Despite the fact that we don’t know the official specs, I count on that the majority of them would be the identical because the Sony E model. So, listed below are these specs for reference:

The one specification modifications we’re more likely to see for the Nikon Z system are weight, measurement, and worth, which is able to all change to (hopefully) very small levels.
It was solely final week that I wrote an article referred to as What Lenses Ought to Nikon Make Subsequent, As soon as the Roadmap Ends? – and I occurred to say this Tamron lens. “Since Tamron is taking part in footsie with the Z system already, perhaps we’ll see a Nikon-brand model of this lens seem sooner or later. (Or, Tamron might merely add a Z mount and hold their branding, which might be wonderful too.)”
Seems to be like footsie progressed to a second date slightly rapidly.
Nikon has, to place it mildly, by no means made a lens like this. Nor has virtually anybody. A 35-150mm f/2-2.8 zoom is a loopy focal size and aperture mixture solely made doable by fashionable lens designs – particularly contemplating that it weighs 1165 grams / 2.57 kilos, which, although heavy, is quite a bit lower than most 70-200mm f/2.8 zooms. (By comparability, the Nikon Z 24-70mm f/2.8 S weighs 805 grams, and the Nikon Z 70-200mm f/2.8 S weighs 1440 grams).
This lens is making an attempt to be plenty of issues without delay, however largely, the enchantment is for occasion photographers. So long as you don’t thoughts dropping 24mm on the extensive finish and 200mm on the lengthy finish, this lens is a substitute – after which some – for a dual-wielding photographer with a 24-70mm f/2.8 on one camera and a 70-200mm f/2.8 on one other.
It’s additionally the primary f/2 zoom lens for the Nikon Z system, albeit one which progressively grows to f/2.8 and totally switches at about 80mm. It will nonetheless be good to see one thing akin to Canon’s 28-70mm f/2L for the Nikon Z system, although it could be so specialised.
The Sony model of this lens is well-reviewed, however we haven’t examined it but at Photography Life – all I can say is that if there aren’t any undesirable surprises with the Nikon Z model of this lens, will probably be a significantly compelling alternative for some photographers. It will probably successfully substitute two f/2.8 zooms in a single lens, whereas masking the most-used focal lengths for many occasion, portrait, and studio photographers. I can’t wait to check it when it ships later this year!
