Outstanding image quality meets delicate bokeh
The A036 zoom delivers a dazzling balance of clear yet soft rendering, stunning bokeh and exceptional resolution for in-focus areas. It also captures the finer details across the entire focus plane with performance that supports the latest high-resolution cameras?all while expressing the characteristic smoothness of a fast aperture lens. Stunning bokeh spreads gently from the plane of focus to highlight your subject. By stopping down the aperture, you can alter how images are rendered. The lens also incorporates a nine-bladed aperture that produces beautifully round defocused light points. And Tamron?s distinctive image characteristics, which produce more than just a different degree of blur with F-stop changes, add even more impact.
It is designed to maximize the potential of full-frame mirrorless cameras. Because it is designed to be your most frequently used high-speed zoom, we made it compact. Now you can enjoy advanced optical performance in a compact size with lightweight convenience. Weighing just 550g (19.4 oz) with a length of 117.8mm (4.6 in), the A036 lets you take advantage of the mobility offered by mirrorless cameras for everything from everyday snaps and commemorative photos to specialized photography.
Get an MOD of 0.19m at a wide-angle setting
The Model A036 breaks all the rules regarding MOD. No longer must the MOD of a zoom lens be fixed throughout the focal range.
The A036 reaches a MOD of 0.19m (7.5 in) at the 28mm wide-angle end achieving a maximum magnification ratio of 1:2.9. A working distance of just 5.7cm (2.24 in) from the front element allows you to shoot close-up with a sense of perspective unique to wide angles. At the 75mm telephoto end, the 0.39m (15.3 in) MOD provides an image magnification of 1:4, allowing close-up shooting with a pleasantly blurred background similar to a macro lens.
Superb AF keeps it sharp and quiet
The AF drive on the A036 includes an RXD (Rapid eXtra-silent stepping Drive) motor unit to help you stay focused on the action. RXD uses an actuator to precisely control the rotational angle of the motor, allowing it to directly drive the focusing lens without passing through a reduction gear. A sensor that accurately detects the position of the lens enables high-speed and precise AF, which is ideal when shooting continually moving subjects or video. With a focusing system that is both smooth and quiet, the A036 lets you shoot a video without worrying about picking up ambient drive sounds.
