Summary: Pros: > Sharpness superb at f/11-f/16 > Negligible amount of chromatic aberration > In Budget > Circular aperture, produces soft round bokeh at f/2.8 Cons: > Little bit of Noisy while focusing > Focus Hunts at low light
Summary: Considering the value, what a great lens this is. Overall build quality is pretty good, the image reproduction is point sharp. Extremely versatile with the presence of Limit/Full focus switching. On the negative side, the lens is a little loud if you are into insect photography and slow AF makes it a tad difficult in tight conditions. If you don't mind that, overall this lens is a great buy. Oh and flipkart service, the lens was delivered in 4 hours flat. Wow, you guys!
Summary: Given the price, its an excellent lens for macro photography. Pros 1. Cheaper compared to other macro lenses from Canon and Sigma 2. Image Quality is quite satisfactory Cons 1. No VC, but you know that while purchasing 2.
Summary: My first experience with this lens was on one of my colleagues D5100, we were both out on a photo walk. We were shooting a dragon fly, me with the 55-250 and he with the Tamron 90mm, after the day of shooting we ended up comparing shots of this dragon fly, I was amazed at the level of details and sharpness that this lens produced. Although comparing 55-250 with this seems illogical , but I tend to use my 55-250 to capture a lot of bugs and flies, with decent results i.e.
Summary: A very good & versatile Lens. The build quality of the lens is good and the image quality and sharpness is excellent. The auto focus does struggle sometimes,but the option to switch over to manual focus does come in handy. Over all ...its the best product in this price bracket.
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.
