From krolop-gerst :

“Eventually it all depends on the price tag. Tamron surely scores off the competition a little bit with their two new lenses. Of course we are talking about bits and bobs at a high quality level. Nevertheless Tamron has succeeded in setting a whole new dimension regarding the quality standard of camera lenses. Both new lenses are absolutely high-end and provide outstanding quality even for megapixel-monster cameras.”

From Popphoto :

“Overall, I’ve found the lenses to be rather impressive, especially when you consider the $600 price tag. That puts it right at the same price point as the Nikon 35mm F/1.8 (which lacks image stabilization) and the Canon 35mm F/2 IS, which is a little bit slower and lacks the close-focusing capabilities of the new Tamrons.”

From layersmagazine :

“To suppress ghosting and flare, Tamron has applied both eBAND (extended bandwidth and angular-dependency) and BBAR (broad-band anti-reflection) coatings to critical elements to reduce reflections and provide maximum light transmission. This reduces internal reflections that can cause ghosting and flare to a minimum.”

From resourcemagonline :

“Finally, and probably most importantly, Tamron included what I consider to be the best optical stabilization available, Vibration Compensation, in both the 35mm and the 45mm. This is a big deal, as getting super-reliable image stabilization allows you 3.5 additional stops of light when shooting hand held. Shakey hands or minute vibrations to a tripoded camera are nothing to worry about with these new Tamron SP lenses.”
