Flash sale: Tamron drops prices on 6 zoom lenses

If you’re a Sony shooter in need of a high-quality zoom, then now’s the time to buy. 

Earlier this week, Tamron launched a two-week flash sale, featuring discounts between $80 and $200 on a handful of zoom lenses for Sony. The sale began Monday, March 28, which means you only have until Sunday, April 10th to grab a bargain-priced lens.

What items does the flash sale include? Tamron lists six high-quality zoom lenses:

Full-frame landscape photographers in need of a top-notch wide-angle lens should consider the 17-28mm f/2.8; the sweeping field of view is perfect for capturing expansive seascapes, mountainscapes, and more, while the f/2.8 maximum aperture lets in enough light for beautiful, crisp astrophotography

And if you’re a Sony APS-C landscape photographer, look no further than the 11-20mm f/2.8, the 17-70mm f/2.8, or – if you’re willing to splurge on the ultimate APS-C photography kit – both the 11-20mm and the 17-70mm. The former boasts a 16.5-30mm effective field of view, ideal for ultra-wide vistas, while the latter spans from 25.5-105mm and is capable of handling tighter landscapes and intimate close-ups. It’s also the ultimate APS-C walkaround lens thanks to its built-in image stabilization, wide maximum aperture, and compact build, and you’ll have plenty of fun capturing travel photos, street scenes, architectural frames, and more.

Portrait and event photographers will love the Tamron 70-180mm f/2.8, which combines a wide aperture and telephoto perspective without breaking the bank (it competes with Sony’s 70-200mm f/2.8 GM, which costs $2300 on a good day). Yes, you sacrifice 20mm on the long end compared to standard 70-200mm options, but you get lightning-fast focusing and excellent optics, not to mention a more portable body. Landscape photographers, too, will appreciate the telephoto field of view for distant shots of trees and mountain peaks.

Finally, bird and wildlife photographers should check out the Tamron 150-500mm f/5-6.7. Focusing is speedy, sharpness is great, but the real prize is the focal-length range. At 150mm, you can capture environmental shots of large wildlife; zoom out to 500mm, and you’ll be capable of photographing hawks, owls, and even the smallest of songbirds. 

Bottom line: Don’t miss out on these impressive savings from Tamron. Remember, they only last until April 10th, so head over to Amazon or B&H and grab a discounted lens while you still can!
