Is This the Ultimate Wedding Photography Lens?

Wedding photography generally requires at least two and often several lenses to get through the entire day, and as such, any lens that can take the place of a few offers a significant increase in convenience. The Tamron 35-150mm f/2-2.8 Di III VXD is one such lens, and with its tremendous focal length range and wide aperture, it looks like a potentially fantastic option for wedding photographers. This great video takes you through a wedding day with the lens to show you how versatile it is. 

Coming to you from Taylor Jackson, this awesome video takes you through a wedding day with the Tamron 35-150mm f/2-2.8 Di III VXD lens. Until recently, full frame zoom lenses never went above f/2.8, but in the last few years, we have seen lenses like the Canon RF 28-70mm f/2L push the boundaries of design. I have owned the Canon lens for about a year ago, and it has replaced several primes in my bag, and the step forward in convenience is hard to over-exaggerate. Tamron's version takes that idea and uses an even more versatile focal length range, making it quite intriguing. Check out the video above for the full rundown from Jackson.

It's f2.8 at 85mm. Being used to an 85/1.4 for event work, that's a deal-killer for me.

It's a great lens for most events, but every time I bring 35/1.2, 85/1.4 and 135/1.8 "magic happens" ;)
So two cameras and brightest primes for a wedding for me, even in APS-C when needed there's still a headroom.

Nope, there’s no 24.
