Excerpt: I use this with a Sony A77. I find it remakable. Everything I've shot so far has been handheld and I am very pleased. This is the first macro capable lens I've owned and I am impressed with it.
Excerpt: I use this lens primarily for macro. Image quality is at least as good or better than my old Micro Nikkor 200mm f/4 AI-S (manual focus lens) and has much less chromatic aberration. The autofocus works well and the magnification goes to 1: 1.
Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh
Excerpt: I shoot mostly macro and this lens reproduces 1: 1 at its closest focus distance, has excellent IQ, decent AF performance, pleasant bokeh, acceptable but not stellar build quality, and is bargain priced.
Excerpt: I used this at a wedding during the brides hair and make-up and for the detail shots. The quality is fantastic and I love the compression with this macro. I need to do some research to see why at times it would not open all the way up to 2.8.
Excerpt: This lens is tack sharp and excellent for use as both a portrait and macro lens. Although I ususlaly like to use Canon products, I have found that the Tamron SP lens produces a much sharper image than their regular consumer lens at a much better price than the Canon.
Pros: Durable, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, TACK SHARP, Well Bult
Tamron AF 90mm f/2.8 Di SP aF/MF 1:1 Macro is A Great Lens
22 June 2014
Summary: Tamron AF 90mm f/2.8 Di SP aF/MF 1:1 Macro is a very good lens for macro pictures and also portrait shots. The lens is affordable and works well in all light conditions (flash in the dark), though I prefer early morning pictures.
Summary: I have never been dissapointed with a Tamron purchase. I am not dissapointed now either! Crisp, clear photos. I do prefer the lens for portrait type shots more than true macro shots - but that is solel about preference. Don't hesitate - BUY IT!
Great lens so far. Was not aware item from this seller was a "grey market" lens.

Summary: I already have 2-Cannon, 1-Sigma, and 2-Tamron lenses. All great lenses on my pair of Canon 60D bodies. Packaging was great as per normal from Amazon and the box appears to be a real Tamron box and the lens appears new with all the proper packaging.
