TAMRON 24mm F2.8 (Model F051) for Sony E-mount x snap and architecture in Spain by Klaus Wohlmann
As a landscape, reportage and street photographer, light equipment is very important for me. On the street, I want to be able to move quickly without attracting attention. For some time now, I prefer to take pictures with mirrorless full-frame cameras because they are smaller and more compact. They appear less threatening and I am not immediately perceived as a professional photographer, which in many situations makes it easier to obtain authentic images.
The new 24mm F / 2.8 is ideal for this style of photography. Its big advantage is its light and compactness combined with the high image quality. In fact, the engineers managed to make it so compact that I can stow it well even in a jacket pocket and no longer need to rely on a backpack. With this lens I can work light-hearted and swiftly in every way.
Another key benefit of this fixed focal lens is the excellent image quality. Regarding resolution and sharpness, the 24mm F/2.8 meets all my demands as a professional landscape and travel photographer. Even when working with a wide-open aperture, the pictures are exceptionally sharp and more detailed than with a zoom lens. The optical performance of the 24mm F/2.8 is really impressive. The large aperture enables wide-angle shots with a nice blur in the background and well exposed subjects full of details. This effect is particularly strong if, like me, you enjoy taking pictures up close. In this respect the 24mm opens up a whole range of exiting possibilities, as the Minimum Object Distance allows me to really get up close to the subject.
