        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.

          Comments about Tamron SP 90mm f/2.8 Di Macro Autofocus Lens for Sony Alpha & Minolta Maxxum SLR:

          This lens is amazing. I'm able to get just a few inches from my subject and take beautiful, sharp and detailed images. The auto focus is a bit louder than I'm use to, but the quality of my images more than makes up for that small annoyance. The bokeh it creates is just as beautiful also. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a macro lens and also recommend B&H for outstanding service and lightning quick delivery.

              I shoot fashion and beauty only - and this lens in particular I love for shooting accessories and jewelry. Great contrast and razor sharp lines… in tight on an ear or finger or full length… with a nice and narrow depth.

                    For those with a lust for the macros, this lens is an essential. I got this for use on my A7 (with a LA-EA3 adapter) and surprisingly it has not come off the camera since I got it. A moderate telephoto, an excellent macro lens and a superb portrait lens seems to be the combination that I have been searching for. From all the images that I have obtained with this lens till date, I notice that it is extremely sharp at just about all apertures. The lens is quite well built and feels sturdy. Bottom line, this is a must have macro and portrait lens on any camera. Well priced and great delivery from B&H.

                        A beautiful lens so far. Images are super sharp and focus seems to be instant.

                        One thing with this particular lens though, as compared to other Tamron's, is when you use it with the Sony A77V. The AF/MF switch on the lens doesn't work the same way as other lenses with an AF/MF switch. ie: With this particular lens, you must switch the selection knob on the camera to MF when using the MF mode on the lens. Not doing so seems to not engage the MF mode and if using the camera's Focus Highlight mode, it does not work unless the camera's switch is set to MF. You don't have to do this with other Tamron lenses. I'm curious to know if anyone else has discovered this.

                          At random : compact, lightweight, sharp and crisp, quiet, good autofocus( not always the fastest w/ patterns ) switch to manual is easy, Low light friendly. I use it on a Sony Alpha 77 and have not used it extensively yet but I took as many different pics. as I could. Macro is really impressive and you will see on your PC screen things you didn't know were in the shot!! It has earned a permanent spot in my bag.

                            Excellent lens for the price. If you are going to buy a macro, this is the one you should buy. The 90mm enables you to get close without the need of a flash. The images are very sharp and I can't wait to use this more in the spring taking pictures of flowers and stuff.

                              My first real macro lens and it's a winner. I'm a beekeeper so it is natural to want to shoot bees. My first attempt was OK but my second produced a winner in my eyes. Using this lens on a Sony a77.

                              This lens is very slow to focus and tends to hunt a lot. When it does get on the pictures are great though.

                                Very sharp Macro lens. Fast and very bright. Good all around medium telephoto. Pollycarbonate construction is a plus for light weight, but it *is* plastic. Build is OK, but not quite up to pro-quality. But the output is as good as any lens at any price.

                                  I love this lens it gives great detail to my close up shots of flowers, and is very sharp and fast lens, most people complain about the slow auto focus but i find it to be quite fast.

                                      Excellent lens. Sharp, great color. Not bad AF considering it's a Macro lens. I've used it for Macro's and portraits and anything else that I can use a 90mm for. Well worth the money. Plastic construction but I've never had a problem with durability, in the 3yrs I've owned it it has always been reliable, and I use it alot. I can't really find any con to mention.
