Perhaps the best crop sensor macro lens.

Excerpt: I bought this Sony mount macro to go with my Sony SLT alpha 77. Build quality is excellent and is fairly light. The focus is IF so the compact length does not change. The MF ring is wide and has excellent damping for manual use.
Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Rugged
Excerpt: I bought it to use with my Sony A77 body.Very well made with tight tolerances, good quality plastics. Very compact.Hood reverses for storage. Excellent image quality from f2 onwards. Mild vignetting at f2.
Pros: Excellent For Mf, Excellent IQ, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
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.
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.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Rugged
Excerpt: Tamron makes great lenses. I have used them with 35mm cameras such as the Canon A-1 and the Nikon F-3HP and have found them to be clear and sharp. They are easy to use and usually at a better price than Canon and Nikon lenses.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Rugged, Strong Construction
