Tamron SP AF 60mm f/2 Di II LD Macro test

  • Conclusion: The Tamron 60mm lens proves to be a very tidy package that continues the tradition for high-quality optics set by its 90mm stablemate. In terms of handling and performance, there is little to fault. While it does cost slightly more than rivals like Sigma's 70mm and Tamron's 90mm, I do think that the benefits offered by the maximum aperture of f/2 warrant the cost and this lens offers a unique proposition that you can't find elsewhere.

REVIEW: Tamron SP AF 60mm f/2 DiII Macro 1:1

28 February 2010
  • Excerpt: Macro lenses are highly sought after for a variety of uses, from close ups to portraits and landscapes. Their quality is expected to be exemplary and the only disadvantage tends to be a fairly modest maximum aperture. Here Tamron offer a spectacular f/2 optic, so if the performance is up to par they could have a very desirable lens indeed on their hands.
  • Pros: f/2 aperture, Good build quality, Excellent value for money, Good performance, Full time manual function feature
  • Cons: Some barrel distortion

Tamron 60mm f2.0 Di II Macro Review

Bob Atkins
24 January 2010
  • Conclusion: The Tamron 60mm f2 Di II macro is a good lens with high sharpness and low distortion, even wide open, at both normal and macro focusing distances. The fast f2 aperture allows creative use of DOF effects, provides a sightly brighter image for focusing and can be used to better blur backgrounds in portrait work. Peak performance is probably in the f5.6 to f8 region, but the lens can be shot wide open at f2 and excellent results still obtained.

Tamron's new 60mm macro lens speeds past the competition with its fast f2.0 aperture, a stop faster than the other guy's lens

  • Excerpt: Introduced at the end of March of 2009, Tamron's new 60mm is finally hitting the shelves at the camera stores. What makes this lens stand out more than anything else is its fast f2.0 lens. That's not a typo its a full stop faster than the competition's f2.8 lenses. Two other standout features are internal focus and the use of two low dispersion elements in the design for improved image quality.

Lens Test: Tamron SP 60mm f/2 Di II Macro AF

Pop Photo
1 October 2006
  • Excerpt: The world's fastest 1:1 digital macro lens ($570, street), this is also the fastest Tamron, and its first to allow manual focus while in autofocus mode. It has a very tight closefocusing distance, and it belongs to Tamron's top-tier SP family of Super Performing lenses. Made for DSLRs with APS-C-sized sensors, on most it's a 90mm equivalent.

SP AF 60 mm f/2.0 Di II LD (IF) Macro 1:1

LensTip.com
25 March 2011
  • Conclusion: The Tamron SP AF 60 mm f/2.0 Di II LD (IF) Macro 1:1 is a splendid lens in many respects. The quality of its optics is beyond reproach. The lens provides sharp images at all apertures and across the frame. Most of optical aberrations is corrected well or even in an exemplary manner. We also get a small, shapely, compact and sealed barrel and a better fastness than in the case of most other rivals. Everything for a sum of money which won’t be a drain on our pocket.
  • Cons: significant vignetting at the maximum relative aperture,, weak performance of focusing mechanism.

Tamron SP AF 60mm f/2 Di II Macro Lens

PhotoReview
1 June 2010
  • Summary: A fast, well-built macro lens for cameras with APS-C sized image sensors.Tamron's SP AF 60mm f/2 Di II Macro lens is considerably lighter and a full f-stop faster than the Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM lens we reviewed recently. This SP (Super Performance) lens covers a focal length equivalent to 93mm in 35mm format with Nikon and Sony cameras or 96mm on the Canon EOS 40D camera we used for our review, which makes it also suitable for portraiture. . .
  • Pros: You want a well-built macro lens with a wide maximum aperture., You'd like to be able to over-ride the AF system and focus manually while in AF mode., You want a lens that requires no readjustment when you fit filters. Don't buy this lens if :, You'd like image stabilisation for hand-held close-up work., You require a lens with quiet autofocusing and little tendency to hunt.
