Reviews and Problems with Tamron AF 90mm f/2.8 DI VC USD SP Macro
Showing 1-10 of 57
Excellent walk-around lens
15 July 2014
Excerpt: The Tamron 90 has true macro capabilities, and unlike say a 60mm macro, allows you to stand somewhat back from your subject, for example "spookables" such as birds and insects.<br /><br />The 90 also has lot's of non-macro uses, especially creative portraits and subject-oriented landscapes such as a lone tree on a hill in the mid-distance.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
Summary: What an amazing lens. If you think that you need canon or Nikon just because they are the same brand as your camera, this lens is on their level! It is an absolute wonder to work with, actually it's become more fun than work. Smooth, fast. VC is nice.
Summary: El Objetivo ofrece resultados de muy alta calidad en casi cualquier situación. Tamron ha conseguido una grandísima mejora con respecto a la versión anterior sin estabilizador de imagen (VC) que tuve oportunidad de probar. En esta versión, las fotos a pulso quedan clavadas en el 90% de las veces gracias al VC.
Excerpt: I find this lens perfect for macro and portraits. It's very sharp and light weight.The f2.8 aperture makes it easy to focus manually and the vibration control is good for lower light conditions. I find nothing to complain about so far when using this lens. For the price it can't be beat as far as I'm concerned.
Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
Summary: Guys, those who are viewing this lens today.. would have definitely looked up the Nikon 105mm f2.8 macro. You would definitely have been confused like I was thinking about which one should you go for. Though I dont own the Nikon one, can't compare it for you. However, this lens does magic. if you wish to see sample pictures, please go through people and portrait category ( recent uploads) facebook.com/ManasNayakPhotography Leave me a message if you need more details.
Excerpt: Back in the days of film, I had a long zoom with Micro (macro) ability. I've missed that lens and although this isn't a zoom with Micro it is a great micro lens. Images are crystal clear and it allows you to tell the lens the distance you are from the object.<br /><br />I used it for the first time last week and it also took a great group shot of a bunch of us apple picking.
Pros: Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Strong Construction
Summary: i don't know if the lens is defective or if it works this way. The aperture changes from 2.8 to 5.6 depending on the focal distance. It is 5.6 at minimum focal distance and 2.8 at infinity focal distance. This makes the lens worthless if every time your subject changes position the aperture changes, it makes it impossible to manually set up your cameras exposure when your subject moves but the lighting does not change. The lens I received is a worthless pile of junk.
Excerpt: I love nature in my back yard. This lens enables me to really get close up and personal with all the flowers and critters in my back yard. I am a Master Gardener so close ups of all my flowers are a must.
Excerpt: I'm a marketing photographer for a fishing lure company so I need a really good lens to take photos of some really small baits. I've struggled in the past with other lenses including the Nikon 105mm Micro. The Tamron SP 90mm f/2.8 Di VC USD 1: 1 Macro is absolutely PERFECT! I can see imperfections in baits that the subcontractors don't see! I've gotten more compliments in the last month than ever! This lens was a worthy investment.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
