Tamron SP 45mm f/1.8 Di VC USD
Standard prime lens £TBA , $600 www.tamron.co.uk
Tamron claims this lens’s focal length gives ‘the closest approximation to human field of vision”. It combines a fast f/1.8 widest aperture with Vibration Compensation stabilisation. Ring-type UltraSonic autofocus comes with full-time manual override, and top-quality glass elements have coatings to reduce ghosting. The lens is also weather-sealed.
FIRST IMPRESSIONS: The feature set is great, but competition among standard primes is stiff, so the price needs to be right too.
