  • Excerpt: Lens purchased for macro shots of flowers and insects, as well as portraits. Lens focused rather quickly with good to moderate light. Lens is light enough that it can be hand held with some control, but a monopod or tripod is definitely recommended.

A great lens

  • 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.

Good value, good lens

  • 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.

Excellent macro, some cons

  • 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
  • Cons: Noisy, Slow Focus

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.

  • Summary: This lens is a really great macro lens. Very sharp photos, and it produces a beautiful bokeh. I was surprised at how great a portrait lens it is too. I was impressed and excited about the possibilities.
