The lens is the first zoom for Nikon Z mount cameras to have a maximum wide-open aperture of F2, and follows the release of the Sony E-mount version in 2021.

The 35-150mm features four LD (Low Dispersion) and three GM (Glass Molded Aspherical) lens elements optimally arranged, with autofocus driven by a linear motor focus mechanism (VXD). Inside, you'll find 21 elements in 15 groups.

According to Tamron, the 'high-speed, high-precision AF provides the lens with superior responsiveness to the photographer’s actions, delivering stable and reliable focusing even with fast-aperture lenses, from the MOD (Minimum Object Distance) to infinity.'

The lens has a minimum focus distance of 0.33m at the wide end and 0.85m at the tele end. The 160mm long lens weighs 1,190g, and it uses an 82mm filter thread. 

The new lens launches September 21. No local pricing has been confirmed, but the E-Mount version has an RRP of $2,649.
