Tamron 24mm F2.8 Di III OSD M 1:2 Lens Review: “Outstanding for its Price”


Marc Alhadeff has just tested the newly announced Tamron 24mm f/2.8 Di III OSD M 1:2 Lens on Sony a7R IV and posted a full review. The price is affordable, but the performance is excellent!

Below is the conclusion: ” The Tamron 24mm F2.8 Di III OSD M 1:2 (450 euros) is an outstanding lens for its price. It is part a set of new Prime lenses with all a short focusing distance , a 1:2 magnification ratio, a F2.8 aperture, same length, same weight. It delivers very similar results to the Sony 24mm F1.4 GM (1600 euros) for a fraction of the price although obviously only being a F2.8. Its sharpness is mostly outstanding on the Sony A7RIV and the results in term of color rendition / background blur are excellent…”


  • Outstanding sharpness across the whole frame on A7RIV
  • Very compact and light : discrete and going well for video on a Gimbal
  • Low price
  • Very good background blur and color rendition
  • Good resistance to flare
  • Very short focusing distance allowing to reach 1:2 magnification
