Excerpt: This tamron macro lens is very light weight compared to the Canon 100mm. The tamron outer case feels pretty cheap but is durable The lens takes great pics and easy to use. Would recommend the tamron as best deal for the price.
Excerpt: The 90mm f/2.8 SP Di MACRO 1: 1 VC USD Lens for Nikon by Tamron is a beautiful lens. It is fast, quiet and nicely constructed. I mounted it on my camera and found it to be as advertised.HOWEVER! The box that it arrived in looked as is UPS had used it for a rugby ball. It was crushed to the point that even the box holding the lens was crushed.I returned the lens, at my expense, out of fear that the internal parts of the lens may have been damaged or missaligned.
Excerpt: I bought this lens because it was the top rated lens on dxomark less than $. I was surprised to learn that the aperture limit changes according to focus distance, probably becase it's an internal focusing lens? The following are aperture limits for each focusing distance: • 2.8 : inf• 3.0 : 20'• 3.2 : 3'• 3.5 : 2'• 3.8 : 1.5'• 4.5 : 1.2'• 5.0 : 1.05'• 5.6 : 0.98'This isn't an issue for me because macro lens are best at the 9-11 apertures anyway and for protrait work a...
Summary: My 2-Star rating has nothing to do with the product (which is awesome!) but more to do with the Seller, Another Deal Site. They sell "gray lenses" which means they cannot be warrantied by Tamron in the United States. One of the reasons I like Tamron so much is they provide an excellent product and warranty their lenses for 6 years...something other lens manufacturers do not do. So, buyers beware!
Summary: I love this lens! The pictures are sharp and beautiful, and I think it's because of the vibration control. I really like the full-time manual focus control. The 12 inch focal distance is great--gives me a working distance between me and the bees. :-) All around, it's a great macro lens.
Summary: I love this lens!! I have used it as a portrait lens, but mainly a macro lens. For a living I shoot weddings, so this is my lens for all the ring shots, but for fun I shoot nature and this is an awesome bug lens!!!!
Excerpt: This lens has been amazing in so many aspects. I have had it for awhile now. It is very versatile from soft portraits to the extreme close ups. I really think this lens can give Canons 100mm a run for its money! The bokeh when wide open is very soft.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
