The Tamron SP 45mm f/1.8 Di VC USD is a sharp, stabilized standard-angle lens, but color fringing can be an issue at wide apertures.

  • +

    Very sharp. Minimal distortion. Wide maximum aperture. Optically stabilized. Good close focus capability. Weather-sealed design. Available for Canon, Nikon, and Sony SLRs.

  • -

    Shows color fringing. Edge performance isn't as strong as center. Heavy for its size.

This is a super performer at 45mm. I love this focal length as well as 28mm on APS-C. The combination of VC and f/1.8 is way better than f/1.4 for low light. In fact, you only get 1 more step from f/1.8 to f/1.2, while VC gives you extra 3 steps.

As someone else pointed out, I am having exactly the same issue. Nearly 100% severe back focus when using anything but the center point. Before you say anything, my 50 1.8 STM has no trouble with outer points, it's something about this lens! I've never experienced anything like this before.
