Focus Motors

Does anyone have experience with Tamron 35 1.8. I've read some reviews that love it while others complain about inconsistent focusing. Any thoughts about this or other 35, 85, or medium zooms lenses.

 

Thanks

Recently saw an ad for new Tamron lenses. The 35, 35-150 and the 17-28. The only one that I'm interested in for my A7iii is the Sony E mount 17-28, but they each have different focusing motors listed in the specs.

I'm showing the others to ask if anyone knows the difference and how it relates to each other (quality, performance, etc) and to native Sony lenses.

35 f1.4  - Ring-type ultrasonic.

35-150 f2.8-4 - Micromotor

17-28 f2.8 - Stepper motor.

Thanks,

FW

    • I have never done any astrophotography. It is my understanding that with the a7Riiiii raw uncompressed, the only change that happens by selecting a picture profile are the gamma settings. https://youtu.be/9GGDkf4wMWg Therefore, which picture profile, if any, is best for astrophotography? Thanks very much for your help.
    • Think it's quite up to me when to decide to move along. In my very first post I indirectly answered your question: the A6xxx line will only get a MP boost when market demand is big enough. As of yet, it is not. Your reluctance to respond to my statement about the improvement of technology between the A7R2 and A7R4 is quite the satisfaction I needed from this discussion. Thanks!
    • You quoted a statement I made claiming it was untrue. I gave you the reference to prove it was true. Facts are pesky things. Since then you have been dancing around trying to change the argument. We can agree that this dialog is going nowhere. The title of my post asks a question you are unable to answer. I really don't need to hear that what I am hoping for in a future sensor is useless nor do I need you to tell me how far away I should stand when I view art. I have already shown you how y
    • This discussion is going nowhere. I already agreed with you two times over that there is a boost in performance between the A7R1 and the cameras after that, I'm not denying that at all. Don't keep insisting that I am and be all snide about it. Your main claim in this topic is that the latest fullframe-tech is not incorporated in the newest APS-C bodies. You're backing up this claim by comparing the A7R1 to the A7R4. Yes there is a very clear improvement, but you should put things into conte
    • Pieter, You asked that I back up my statement with references and I have. Hard data from your preferred testing website DXO that proves my statement and shows that you are the one that was wrong. Your inability to accept that fact is beyond me. Of course you could've used your eyeballs to confirm the same. Hello guest! Please register or sign in to view the hidden content.
