Great Lens

Metatron, Adorama

  • Excerpt: Great lens with a great looking bokeh at f/2 and 2.8. Nice working distance of 100mm so you don't have the shadow of your lens in your shot. This is for APS-C cameras ONLY not full frame get the 90mm for full frames. Only con is the auto focus is a tad slow and jumpy but once it's focused it's spot on.
  • Pros: Durable, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Slow Focus

Tamron AF 60mm f/2.0 SP DI II LD IF 1:1 Macro Lens for Sony Digital SLR...

Sharon "Reddog", Amazon

  • Summary: Very well made lens. Tamron really looked into all of the natural things that happen with light, reflection and focus. The focus was too soft for me with my dslr. Some people like soft focus. The company that sold this is KEH Camera company and the are top notch. They want you happy. They are very easy to work with.

Not the best, but great picture quality

  • Summary: I own this lens, although the quality of the glass is really good, the focusing is really bad. It's quite slow at focusing and slow at finishing focusing when focusing on something close up/macro. Works great as a portrait lens, as you might know. Cannot focus closer than an inch or two. I myself am thinking in investing in a better macro lens sometime.

front focus... !!!!!

Armando Cavero, Amazon

  • Summary: I had tried this lens on my Canon 7D many times (not as a macro lens, but for portraits) and was not happy with the results just by looking at the camera's lcd, so i always ended up using my ef-s 15-85 which is amazingly sharp and reliable (you may read its review in the-digital-picture.com). one week ago i received the focus pyramid tool (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B007QUG3XA/ref=oh_details_o00_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1) and decided to calibrate my lenses.

Very fun lens

Amazon Customer, Amazon

  • Summary: I have used this thing to photograph snowflakes at night, moss on rocks, and my dog's nose. This lens gives great performance and the aspherical effect is kinda trippy when things are out of focus ( but in a good way ). My only complaint is that the auto focus is a bit noisy. I have this problem with most of my tamron lenses. I got this used, and so, the functionality / price ration is still pretty high for me.

Returned it for the Canon 60/2.8

  • Summary: This lens did not focus well at all on my eos-m, and I would guess is not good for live view focusing, which, IMO, is a must for a Macro. Image quality is great, but AF is poor, and even MF had a very stiff focus ring. Ended up returning it to get the Canon EF-S 60mm 2.8 macro instead.

Fell Short of Expectations

  • Summary: I should preface this by saying that I'm not one of those people that bash 3rd party lenses because of some misguided brand loyalty. When I first started shooting professionally I had to stretch every dollar I made and buy what I could afford and not necessarily what I wanted long term. I've owned several Tamron lenses, 28-75, 17-50, the discontinued and legendary 17-35, and lastly this 60/2.0.

Nice but....

DGOPoke "hiker", Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this lens for my Canon 60D to primarily shoot flowers (although I did shoot a few nice landscapes too) and if this review was strictly for my 60D it would be 5 stars, but it isn't. I have subsequently purchased a full frame 6D and tried to use this lens, but there is horrible vignetting, and I do mean horrible. I'm know in photoshop or LR one can crop, but why? So now I want to sell this lens and get a 100mm Canon macro (anyone want to buy my Tamron?).
