REVIEW: Tamron F.I.M 28mm
Posted by Bengt Köhler Sandberg 2012-03-15
f/2.8 to f/16
5 bladed aperure
Infinit to 0.22m (0.9ft)
Standard 35mm film size (24×36 mm negative)
Analogue B&W film
Sharp even wide open and you only have a little unsharp corners at the very edges
Better sharpness and the unsharp corners are next to all gone
Lose a little contrast but sharpness holds up nicely

f/2.8 - f/5.6 - f/16
Seen worse but not the best
You can get quite big flares with this, so it's not the best lens to shoot that nice sunset with.
And it got a big front lens so you can get a flare quite easy ftom the side.
Pictures taken with a Canon 500D at ISO100 and I used a M42 to Canon mount adapter
f/2.8 - f/4 - f/5.6 - f/8 - f/11 - f/16
Everything is made of metal to the highest mechanical standards, so it will probably last 100 years +
First impression "wow what a rock solid lens"
But its also big and heavy compared to similar lenses.
Image quality is good and all moving parts have a nice feel to them.
Size comparison to the Nikon 28mm f/2.8 AI
Big and heavy compared to similar lenses
