Excellent

  • 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.

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!

My Most Used Lens

Jamie Dobson, Amazon

  • Summary: I love this lens and even though it's a fixed focal length, it has become the standard lens on my Nikon D7100. I use it mainly for portraiture shots for which it does the job brilliantly with macro shots turning out crisp and bright as well. Just be aware that unlike the other lenses I have in my bag, this one doesn't feature an optical stabilization function so for some low light macro shots a tripod or bean-bag is advisable to cut down on potential shake.

Great lens

  • Summary: I bought this as my first macro lens, after checking reviews online. So far,the results I've had are brilliant and I've been thoroughly enjoying getting out in the garden to use it. If you need a little extra reach then maybe go for the 90mm but for what I do - still life & product work- this is perfect.

Very pleased - good for macro and portraits

A music fan "Bob", Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this lens for my crop-frame Alpha 230 DSLR and the focal length of the lens works well on that size; it is a good length for portraits as well as giving a bit more working space for macro pictures. Sony's own macro lenses are 50mm and 100mm which aren't so convenient for both double macro and portrait pictures, so I went for this one. Pictures from the lens are really very sharp and I can't see any sort of distortion.

Hochwertige Linse - gut geeignet für Portraits und Makro

Niels Peekhaus, Amazon
7 March 2014
  • Summary: Ich habe mir, nach langem Überlegen, dieses Objektiv als Erweiterung zum 18-55er Kit-Objektiv gekauft: Mein Ziel war, mich in Sachen Bildqualität wirklich zu verbessern, was bei einem Standardzoom für weniger als 1000€ wohl nur schwer möglich wäre. Es kam also nur eine Festbrennweite in Frage, welche ja zudem noch den Vorteil einer hohen Lichtstärke bietet (ca. 6fach kürzere Belichtungszeiten als mit dem 18-55er bei 55mm und Offenblende).
