DPReview Tamron interview


DPReview Interviewed Tameron at CP+ 2018 and I have summarized the key points below.

  • The Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8 Di III RXD is an all new design
  • It took around one year to develop
  • The market is moving towards mirrorless
  • Sony is the biggest mirrorless camera, maker
  • Tamron hopes to make small high-quality lenses since there aren’t many available right now.
  • Took a jab at Sigma using their old lens designs.
  • Tamron will use lens designs made for FE going forward.
  • Mirrorless is good for photos and video
  • The 28-75mm has a stepping motor that is good for video.
  • When Canon and Nikon go mirrorless in the near future it’s likely that Tamron will adapt their FE designs for their mount.
  • The 28-75mm is polycarbonate and will have SP performance.
  • The 28-75mm is weather resistant.
  • Tamron wants to be recognized as a high-quality brand
  • Tamron tries to balance size and optical quality
  • Tamron doesn’t emphasize automation and sometimes manual assembly is better.
  • The DSLR audience is already in decline while mirrorless is growing.
