I love this lens...

  • Excerpt: I have recently become fascinated with macro photography. I have been using a Tamron 28-300 zoom with a set of extension tubes, and although that combo yielded consistently good results, I wanted to get closer into the subject (mostly flowers) and this dedicated macro lens has proven to be excellent. It is far sharper than my landscape zoom, which means a whole lot less throwaways after you get the images on the computer.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable

Very good macro lens

emac2, Amazon

  • Summary: And the price is right too. I usually don't like Tamron lenses but this one is an exception. Can be almost as sharp as the Canon 180mm and is good enough for this fussy-about -sharpness person.

Exact factory replacement.

Adorama
29 May 2013
  • Excerpt: Same one that would have come with my 180mm if I had bought it new! Rigid, black and BIG! Not only does it keep the sun out, but it increases the overall size of the lens by around 50% in length and some added girth too! Making it much more impressive to the ladies while also keeping things away from your lens.
  • Pros: Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Lightweight, OEM, Rugged, Strong Construction

  • Excerpt: I do nearly all my work in macro and up close. This lens lets me work at a more comfortable distance and has better DOF, making the number of layers more manageable for a fully focused image easier and more efficient to achieve.

Great Telephoto Macro

Dash66, B&H Photo
25 January 2013
  • Excerpt: I am currently using this lens with my Sony Alpha 35, and have been getting wonderful results. As it is currently winter, I haven't gotten a whole lot of chances to use this lens in the manner that I wish (taking shots of flowers and insects)but it has worked well while taking pictures of the ice in the Ohio River, rust on a bolt on a local railroad bridge, and my dogs nose.
  • Pros: Nice Bokeh, Sharp imaging
  • Cons: Heavy
