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

  • 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

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.

Tamron AF 90mm f/2.8 SP Di macro (Pentax) - Review / Lab Test Report

photozone.de
31 October 2008
  • Conclusion: The Tamron AF 90mm f/2.8 SP Di is an excellent lens without significant flaws and it is at least as good if not even slightly better than its more expensive native Pentax counterpart. The resolution figures are impressively high, vignetting is marginal and distortions are non-existent.
