Tamron SP AF 90mm F/2.8 Di Macro 1:1 Model 272E Lens

Nikonians

  • Conclusion: The Tamron SP AF90mm F/2.8 Di Macro 1:1 Model 272E is the newest at this time of writing in a line of Tamron macro lenses dating back many years. It will carry on this proud tradition. Apart from the slightly less robust feel of the full / limit switch, I really can find nothing to criticise.

  • Conclusion: Build quality is about right for this class of lens, with a smooth plastic outer barrel and a metal mount at its rear for sturdiness. The large, textured focusing ring can be easily pulled up and down to alternate between manual and autofocus operation, although perhaps a little too easily, because...
  • Pros: Affordable, Sharp images, Available in Canon, Nikon, Sony and Pentax fittings
  • Cons: Noisy focusing motor, No image stabilisation system

Tamron SP AF 90mm f/2.8 Di Macro Review

What Digital Camera
16 December 2009
  • Excerpt: As Tamron’s macro has a focal length of 90mm rather than 100mm or 105mm, the lens has to be slightly closer than would otherwise be the case to record a true macro (1:1) image.
  • Pros: Great value for money
  • Cons: Wide-open non-macro MTF is poor

REVIEW: Tamron SP AF 90mm f/2.8 Di Macro

photodo
29 August 2009
  • Conclusion: This lens will not disappoint you with its sharpness, which is a match for its competition especially wide open. The lens actually read out as f/3 wide open which is not quite ‘what it says on the tin’, loosing almost a third of a stop but does come in straight away with good resolution figures.
  • Pros: Focussing speed (for a macro), Performance wide open, Lightweight
  • Cons: Build quality not quite as robust as some., Peak in wrong place for Macro (but great for portraiture), Lack of a protective case/pouch

  • Excerpt: There's plenty to like about the neatly designed Tamron SP AF 90mm f/2.8 Macro DI. The price tag is certainly competitive and the design is excellent - we particularly like the push/pull AF/MF selector that enables you to quickly change between the two.
