Great as a zoom prime, horrible as a macro in low light

  • Summary: Perhaps I didn't get a good one? Not sure, but I bought this lens for it's macro capabilities. I found it almost impossible to use the autofocus in low light settings (really meaning anything indoors.

Fiddly Mechanical Parts

Rajib Ghosh, Amazon
18 July 2012
  • Summary: Why the two stars? I wanted to give it one to bring it to Tamron's attention but the lens does have it's virtues. For starters, there is no other manufacturer making a similar product at a similar price-point. Optics-wise, image-quality wise, warranty-wise, this lens is very very good.

Soft at distance

Stan, B&H Photo
14 April 2010
  • Excerpt: My 90mm Tamron took crisp, detailed macros, but images were soft outside that range. Also, I had trouble with the contacts, every once in awhile the lens needed to be remounted to get it to talk to my Nikon D90.
  • Pros: Lightweight, Sharp macros
  • Cons: Blurry Focus, Poor contacts

Not happy yet!

Swingdancer, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: Perhaps I should be using manual focus, as nothing I have shot is in focus where I want it to be. Area of focus is also so small, I find. Will work on manual focus. Maybe yet could be happy. I doubt it. I am an amateur when it comes to lens capabilities. Not sure what the numbers mean.
  • Pros: Lightweight
  • Cons: Blurry Focus

Probleme mit Alpha

Martin, Amazon
11 February 2012
  • Summary: Ich bin seit kurzem besitzer des Tamron, die bereits erwähnten Probleme mit dem Autofokus kann ich leider nur bestätigen. In Verbindung mit der Sony Alpha 290 gibt es immer mal wieder Probleme mit dem Objektiv, weil die Kamera irgendwann nicht mehr erkennt, dass ein Objektiv montiert ist.

Unscharf bei weiten Entfernungen

Peter, Amazon
25 May 2010
  • Summary: Als ich ein Makro Objektiv suchte, war das Tamron für mich die erste Wahl: - geringes Gewicht - sehr gute Bewertungen - vernünftiger Preis Leider hat das Objektiv nicht die Erwartungen erfüllt. Den ersten Versuch machte ich bei einem Fachhändler.
