The Tamron 35mm is a standard wide-angle lens with Vibration
Compensation (VC), fast f1.8 aperture and versatile 0.2m minimum
focusing distance. Since the lens allows for shooting at distances
extremely close to the subject (similar to a macro), close-up pictures
with an attractive background blur effect (bokeh) can be obtained with
the aperture wide open, thereby expanding the scope of photo
opportunities. The lens provides an equivalent focal length of 54mm on
an APS-C camera.
