Tamron introduces new full frame primes (also) for Sony ‘A’ mount.
Tamron tries to help Sony resurrect their ‘A’ mount camera business by including a Sony mount alongside the far more important Canon/Nikon versions. New lenses include a 35mm F/1.8, and 45mm F/1.8. I can see the usefulness of the 35mm, but the 45mm is too close to 35mm, (or vice versa I suppose). I’m guessing they will be pretty good lenses at a good price, looks like around $600 each. Sony’s world is the FE system right now, and though you can use the new lenses with an adapter on an FE camera, why on earth would you cripple your camera with a lens that’s not made for it?
