Nikonians

  • Conclusion: In my opinion, there is no doubt the Tamron SP AF 180mm f/3.5 Di LD [IF] Macro 1:1 is a superb lens, with many fine features. It is capable of producing excellent pictures in both the close-up and telephoto ranges. . The build quality is excellent, as is the detachable tripod collar. The optical performance is exceptional – it leaves absolutely nothing wanting. The manual focus is exceptionally good, as is the manual / auto switching.

REVIEW: Tamron SP AF 180mm f/3.5 Di LD (IF) Macro 1:1

12 February 2009
  • Conclusion: This lens is ergonomically well designed and handled nicely. Despite it’s capabilities, it did not weigh heavily on a neckstrap and felt comfortable and intuitive to use. Usable on full frame sensors and 35mm film as well as cropped sensors, we did wonder whether the resolving power would be able to keep up with the ever-increasing pixel count of modern cameras though.
  • Pros: Handles well and feels right., Good contrast, Good control of distortion and aberrations
  • Cons: Pure resolving power is disappointing, Price a little steep for performance

Tamron AF 180mm f/3.5 SP Di LD [IF] macro (Nikon) - Review / Test Report

photozone.de
26 October 2008
  • Conclusion: The Tamron AF 180mm f/3.5 SP Di LD [IF] macro offers a near-flawless performance. Optically it doesn't leave anything to be desired - the resolution is very good to excellent from f/3.5 all the way down to f/16 and vignetting, CAs and distortions are non-issues in field conditions. The bokeh (out-of-focus blur), a primary aspect in macro photography, is very smooth and buttery.

Tamron SP AF 3,5/180mm Di LD (IF) Macro 1:1

OptiCam
25 December 2008
  • Excerpt: Az elõzõ két objektívvel szemben, amelyek viszonylag új konstrukciók ( 2007 elején mutatták be õket, de csak kb. fél éve kerültek kereskedelmi forgalomba), a Tamron 180mm-es makrója már egy öreg darab (ha jól emlékszem 2003 õszén debütált), amely nem a korával, hanem a teljesítményével vívta ki a fotográfusok tiszteletét. Ebbe a csoportba, a 180mm-es makró objektívek csoportjába, még két nagyon erõs versenyzõ tartozik a Canontól és a Sigmától.
