Summary: This lens deserves very detailed praises, for which I do not have time at the moment. Therefore in short, this lens is a real jewel. Very sharp, very reliable, bright, fast, etc. Auto focus is on a slow side as many others noted, I share their thought, but it isn't a turn off at all to me. When you shoot close up, using auto-focus isn't very good idea anyway. Additionally, the use for portrait purposes is very rewarding.
Excerpt: This was the first macro lens that I have purchased. I spent a lot of time reading reviews and looking over many lenses before I decided to purchase this one. I could not be happier with my purchase. <br /><br />I have been very impressed with its incredibly sharp images and short minimum focal length, making it easy to get in close and pull out a lot of detail.
Pros: Consistent Output, Nice Bokeh, Price, Strong Construction
Excerpt: When it comes to macro and portrait photography, this lens shines. Great Bokeh with somewhat soft, rich colors. I also have excellent results with night photography; the maximum f/2 is excellent in low light situations. Whether capturing landscape, portrait or macro, this glass is all I could hope for and is dramatically improving my learning curve.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Rugged
Fair price for what I paid new price I would not buy.

Summary: Great lens for the price still learning how to use It's dual purpose as as an SP compatible with full frame and DX format is nice for an easy upgrade when I get into full frame I'd prefer The Nikon Micro 105 mm AFS but too spendy and not a high enough Aperture setting as for those very expensive.
Excerpt: Been using it for over a year and if you want a good affordable Macro then this is the lens you want. Amazing portrait lens as well...truly unbelievable results. Also love the f/2.0. Only downside is sometimes it dosent always focus right away but havent really missed any shots and its also not rated for an full sensor cam but still works great.
Tamron 60mm f/2 Di II LD IF Macro 1:1 SP AF review by PeterB666
7 January 2012
Summary: I have had this lens for a while. It produces fabulously sharp images and is a joy to use. The internal focussing means that as you focus closer, you don't need to get as close to the object as you do with non-internal focussing lenses. I use mine with a Nikon D90 and AF performance is fine in good light however a focus limiter would have been nice.
Pros: Very sharp, relatively compact, fixed front and rear elements
Cons: Build quality a little light, not f/2 when focussed closer than 1 metre, af performance in low light
Excerpt: What can I say with $100 rebates and got this quality of image with 1: 1, fast AF, f/2 aperture, worked on low light, wonderful bokeh, light weight etc.<br />That is very attracted, so I bought it as my first macro lens.<br />I highly recommend try this macro lens.
Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
