Showing 1-10 of 39
Nice affordable lens for macro work
15 February 2012
Summary: Lens seems to be built very well and the shots that I have taken with it so far are crisp and clear. Compared to my other lenses (Tamron 18-270 and Canon 50mm 1.8), picture quality is very good. Only downsides that I have found are the louder than average auto-focus and the lens creep while carrying when set to manual. Since I almost always shoot in manual the AF noise is of no concern and I simply switch to AF while walking to stop the lens creep.
Pros: Consistent Output, Lightweight, Strong Construction
Summary: I presented this lens to my daughter as a gift; it was a lens that she had been eyeing for some time but could not afford. She has indicated that she is very pleased with its performance and that it has met her every expectation. I have seen the results which are awesome --- pictures of her children and wild life.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight
Summary: I have been very pleased with the lens. Very good quality. Accurate focus. Lightweight. Typically I would purchase a Canon version, but am very pleased with the Tamron quality and clarity. Only down side is that the focusing mechanism is fairly noisy.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Strong Construction
Summary: I purchased this lens as I have been wanting one for a while now and have been extremely happy with it. I am yet to find anything that I am not happy with. Love the ease of use and the results I have achieved since purchasing this lens. I have a very limited lens collection but in comparisson to the ones I do own this one is very high on my list of favorites.
Summary: I was looking for a macro lens and planning for Canon 100mm Macro lens but that was going out of my budget so I started surfing multiple photography websites to find any other macro lens, comparable to Canon 100mm macro but with lower price tag. I read reviews of multiple Macro lenses from Canon, Sigma, Tamron and other brands and after reading review I found that Tamron 90mm Macro lens got good reviews.
Summary: Sharp lens. Good value for money. As soon as I received the lens started shooting anything small. Happy with the lens and I look forward to some great shots soon. AF hunts a bit in macro mode.
Summary: after going through pros and cons of almost all macro lenses available in market,i bought this lense.this is the only macro som1 need to buy who 1)is on budget(damn cheap indeed) 2)wanna hv a dedicated(1:1 reproduction ratio)macro lense with better optical quality(though not best) pros 1)cheap and light lense 2)sharp when stopped down to 11-16(which may give u a thread like DOF at 1:1reproduction,keep this in mind) 3)can be used as a portrait lense(stop down to f4 and...
Summary: I own a Nikon D5100 and was looking for a macro lens for some time. The Nikon lenses being too expensive, the choice was between this one and Tokina. After researching online for a couple of months I finally decided to purchase this one. This is my first non-Nikon lens and I haven't been disappointed one bit so far. The lens is pretty easy to handle, the switch between auto and manual focus modes is quite smooth and of course the picture quality is to die for.
Summary: I was on the lookout for a mid range (zoom) Macro for my Nikon D40. I limited my comparison to Tamron 90 and Tokina 100, as the Nikons (both micro 105 VR and 85 VR) are beyond my budget. After careful study I had to drop the Tokina as it won't auto focus on cheaper Nikon bodies that doesn't have focus motor in the body.
