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.

Tamron AF 60mm f/2 SP Di II LD [IF] Macro - Review / Test Report

photozone.de
28 September 2009
  • Conclusion: The Tamron AF 60mm f/2.0 SP Di II is a welcome addition to the range of 60mm macro lenses. It shows very high sharpness and pleasing bokeh, with its large aperture allows for nice subject separation and therefor qualifies for many more usages than just macro shots. CAs are a little on the high side, as is vignetting wide open, but that's the price one usually needs to pay for speed. The lens itself seems solid and is rather compact and light weight.

Tamron AF 60mm f/2 SP Di II LD [IF] macro (Canon) - Review / Test Report

photozone.de
23 September 2009
  • Conclusion: The Tamron AF 60mm f/2 SP Di II macro is an attractive lens for various reasons. There is, of course, the very large max. aperture of f/2 which should be usually fast enough to replace a conventional 50mm f/1.8 lens for low light and shallow depth-of-field photography. While not being an "Uberlens" at f/2 it's certainly "good enough" here. The center and border quality is very high from f/2.8 to f/5.6.
