  • 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.

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.

Tamron 60mm f/2 Di II LD IF Macro 1:1 SP AF review by PeterB666

  • 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

Simply an amazing lens!

  • Summary: What more can you say!? f/2, a bit faster then most f/2.8 offerings. It is a macro lens and does its job quite well too I might add. Price is not bad at all and quite competitive within the market. Build quality is typical Tamron, feels kind of cheap but in reality they hold up superbly and can take a beating too! Image Quality, sharpness, contrast, color reproduction, all are stunning! Sharpness is razor! Definitely a nice macro as well as portraiture lens.

Great portrait / macro lens!!!

  • Summary: I couldn't be more satisfied with this lens! I was looking for a macro lens which I could double as a portrait lens, but wasn't happy with the f/2.8 aperture of the regular macro lenses on the market. Tamron is the only to offer a f/2 macro lens for Canon EOS cameras. And the focal length (60mm) is just perfect for portraits in a APS-C camera (equivalent to 96mm). I used this lens a lot at the holidays parties. This is a fuc*** sharp lens!

Tamron 60mm f/2 Di II LD IF Macro 1:1 SP AF review by Toby

Toby, slrgear.com
20 March 2010
  • Summary: The lens is a recommendable/preferable alternative to Nikon's 60 mm and 85 mm lenses. The Nikon 60 mm AF-S changes the focal distance to somthing like 40 mm when focusing closely, in contrast the Tamron appears to be a true 60 mm lens. Result: The Nikon 60 mm AF-S has a working distance of 5 cm at 1:1, whereas the Tamron has about 10 cm (you just need to compare the closest focus distance of the lenses).
  • Pros: large aperture, long working distance, lightweight, compact, nice bokeh
  • Cons: none, unless you are looking for an FX lens

Tamron 60mm f/2 Di II LD IF Macro 1:1 SP AF review by Thoppa

  • Summary: EDIT : April 2010. I've been using this lens for five months now and I had a problem with the focusing which I assumed was the lens but has turned out to be the body so I have revised my comments again. I have seen comments about exposure accuracy problems but this has not been an issue at all with my D90. In fact, I get almost exactly the same exposure using a grey card with this lens as with all my Nikon glass.
  • Pros: Image quality, working distance, fast aperture, macro/portrait lens
  • Cons: AF/MF action not quite as good as Nikon AF-S; and some PF CA
