Fixed Focus Radiation Resistant Lenses

For close-up inspection tasks in high radiation environments. Resolve Optics offers both a standard range as well as customer specified fixed focus radiation resistant lenses. Mark Pontin, Managing Director of Resolve Optics commented “Over the last 20 years we have supplied hundreds of radiation-resistant camera and sensor lenses for monitoring radioactive processes in nuclear power, reprocessing and waste storage plants. Where an application does not require the versatility of a zoom lens – a fixed focus lens can be more compact and lightweight as well as being more cost effective.

Custom Raspberry Pi HQ camera gets 40x optical zoom lens

With the introduction of motorized zoom lenses, the next logical step was matching the sensor board. Sure there are countless suitable sensors from various manufacturers like Sony semiconductors, Onsemi, Aptina, and many more. But lack of good support from the SOC side suggested starting from IMX477. It is a reasonably modern 12M image sensor used by many single-board computers like Raspberry Pi, NVIDIA Jetson, and others.

Tamron 35-150mm F2-2.8 Di III VXD Hands-on Review: A versatile zoom lens with excellent performance across the board

The Tamron 35-150mm F2-2.8 Di III VXD lens is a very impressive zoom lens for full-frame Sony E-mount cameras. The lens has a maximum aperture of F2.0 at 35mm, which gradually slows down to a still-fast F2.8. Given its focal length range and speed, the lens is well-suited to many different types of photographs. Given the lens's impressive autofocus performance and good zoom range, it works for portraiture, events, landscapes, and even action. It's sort of a do-it-all type zoom lens, albeit with a faster aperture and different focal length range than more standard zooms, such as a 24-105mm F4 or a 24-200mm F3.5-6.3.

Tamron 35-150mm F/2-2.8 Di III VXD Lens Review

Tamron lays claim to yet another "first" with the fastest general-purpose zoom lens for full-frame mirrorless Sony FE fit cameras.

Here we couple the new lens to the 42MP Sony A7R III full-frame body, so let's see how we get on.

Tamron 35-150mm F2-2.8 Di III VXD Gallery: Tamron’s unique full-frame zoom delivers great results

In 2019, Tamron released the 35-150mm F2.8-4 Di VC OSD portrait zoom lens for full-frame DSLR cameras. The unusual optical formula produced impressive results, but F4 isn't as fast as some portrait photographers desire. So, Tamron has doubled down on the philosophy of the 35-150mm F2.8-4 zoom and created the Tamron 35-150mm F2-2.8 Di III VXD. It features the same versatile focal length range but offers faster maximum apertures at both ends of the lens. The new lens is also designed for Sony E-mount mirrorless cameras, rather than DSLRs.

Tamron 28-75mm F2.8 Di III VXD G2 Gallery: Tamron’s refreshed compact standard zoom offers good performance

The Tamron 28-75mm F2.8 Di III VXD G2 lens is a refreshed fast-aperture standard zoom lens for full-frame Sony E-mount cameras. The lens retains the compact form factor of its predecessor and offers impressive performance at a very palatable price tag of $899. Compare that to Sony's own 24-70mm F2.8 GM lens, which costs $2,200. Granted, 24mm versus 28mm at the wide end could matter in some situations, but Tamron's new zoom is much easier on the wallet and trades wide-angle field of view for a bit more reach. After spending some hands-on time with the lens on a Sony A7R IV, it's clear that you aren't sacrificing quality by saving $1,400, either.
