p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Tamron 35-150mm for Sony - One lens?


I am debating the Tamron 35-150mm for Sony, I used to shoot a lot of weddings but mainly do videography but still do photo for weddings sometimes. I am looking to lessen the amount of gear I have and currently use the 24-105 (most of the time), 70-200 f/4, 55 1.8, & 85 1.8. Do you think I can replace my primes and the 70-200 with just the 50-150? I would probably keep the 24-105 as I use 24 for dance and large formals. I am a little concerned about losing the 200mm reach but think I can manage that. Anybody using this lens and what lenses did you give up and not miss?

You're the only one who can answer that question. I think a rental / audition is in your future.

Have you considered adding a 1.4x converter for the 35-150 turning it into a 210mm if needs be. A converter is small light and easy to carry in a pocket. OK you get f4 rather than f2.8 but so what, that may be advantageous anyway as you would have greater leeway in depth of field. And no doubt you could get away with bumping up the ISO so as to counter the otherwise reduced shutter speed of f4.

35mm max would be far too narrow for me, even 24mm can be too narrow in some scenarios such as group shots in confined areas. Perhaps add a small lightweight wide prime that again is easy to pocket. You wouldn't need to worry about having lens image stabilisation on a little wide lens plus it could be very usable on a gimbal.

Great suggestion but I don't believe you can use one with this lens but will look into it.
