Lens Description: Lightweight and versatile, the Nikon F-mount 17-35mm f/2.8-4 DI OSD Lens from Tamron covers a range of wide-angle focal lengths while maintaining a bright maximum aperture. The variable aperture of f/2.8-4 provides exceptional control over depth of field and allows enough light in to excel in many low-light situations. Housed in the lens, which weighs slightly more than a pound, are 15 elements in 10 groups that include Tamron's Broad-Band Anti-Reflection Coating to reduce reflections, ghosting, and flares. The front lens element is coated in fluorine to more easily dispel dirt, dust, moisture, or fingerprints, and be easier to clean. The lens is also sealed against moisture along the barrel. Additionally, the lens's firmware can be kept up to date via Tamron's optional TAP-in console.

Hello from Chile! This lens has its own advantages from other lenses: it’s comparatively faster than fixed f/4 alternatives and significantly lighter. The price is very attractive too. The image quality is superb. Aberrations are average. The only downsize is the strong vignette.
I would like to share that this lens works great with my Sony a7 iii camera with the Viltrox EF-NEX iv adapter. I also have a Sigma MC-11 adapter, but strangely it doesn’t works properly (firmware up to date february 2021) it has problems with the aperture ring. The Viltrox adapter works flawlessly though.
