    Tamron 90mm f/2.8 reviews

    SP 90mm f/2.8 Di Macro Autofocus Lens for Canon EOS is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 81.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic lens I have owned this lens for over a year, and have been very happy with it since day one. I use it with a Canon Rebel XTi for macros, portraits, and telephoto purposes. Recent experiences with other lenses (Canon 18-55 IS kit and 35mm f2.8) have given me a greater appreciation of how nicely sharp pictures from this lens are, even when zoomed in. At 90mm though, you're going to need some space to back up if you want to take a full length portrait for example. So it is not recommended if you are thinking of using it in a cramped place for anything other than tiny objects. Other than that, it is an absolutely great lens that you won't be disappointed with.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very pleased, exceeded my expectations! I'm a part-time hobby/pro/artist who loves to shoot macros, especially floral macros! I've had this lens for over a month now, and it delivers beyond my expectations. I wanted to add a lens that I could use for floral macro work, plus perhaps do some portraiture with Canon 20D. Portraits aren't my specialty yet, so I cannot comment much on use of this lens for that, but for floral macros, all I can say is WOW! I am very pleased. The lens has two focus ranges, Full and Limit, which means you can lock the auto-focus in macro or regular ranges. (Handy, but I most often focus manually anyway in the macro world.) Bottom line: I'm very glad I bought this lens!!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Everything I Expected I went back and forth on whether to get the 60mm or 90mm Tamron. I'm glad I got this one, the extra focal length is very helpful when you plan on shooting insects. I sought the opinion of a photographer that had both, and he recommended this one. Both have great glass for the cost, the only pro to the 60mm is the internal focus. If you are planning on using the lens for more than macro, like portraits, then I might go for the 60mm. I, on the other hand already have other lens' I use for other things, this is strictly for macro and I'm extremely satisfied.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very sharp The manual focus ring works great. The pictures are sharp even at 2.8 and the background blur is very easy to control. Yes the auto focus is slow and noisy but I do not use auto often in macro and it is much better in non macro shots. The tests and reviews on this one were very good and if it had USM it would probably be the best 100mm or less. I have been shooting macro shots with regular lenses and having poor results so I finally broke down and bought this one and right out of the box it delivered perfect macro shots of my aquarium creatures. Wish I had got one earlier and not wasted time trying to make regular lenses into macro.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Make this your first macro If you want to shell out for just one macro lens, you can't go wrong with the Tamron 90mm f/2.8. This lens is so sharp that it is the standard by which many reviewers measure other macros. I use it for manual focus close-up work on a full frame Canon 5D Mark II. While results are very good at f/2.8 and f/16, they are superb from f/4 to f/13; with well balanced sharpness and pleasing contrast and bokeh, and next to no distortion, color fringing or light fall off! It is great to have a lens with such a wide usable range, so that decisions regarding aperture can be based on desired effects and not be hemmed in by performance limitations. Some people don't like the fact that the Tamron is not weather sealed and is mostly plastic, but the trade-off is that it is incredibly light weight, making it easy to handhold without need for image stabilization. There are few bargains to be had in the world of high-grade dSLR equipment, but this is one of them!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Get one TODAY Using on 5D MK2, stellar results, I had this lens 25 years ago and am glad to have it back again. The quick change to manual focus, a must for macro work, is great. Smooth barrel and bright crisp glass.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Recessed Front Element Aside from the normal comments you might read about this lens, it's one totally redeeming value is that unlike the Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro USM, the front element on the Tamron is recessed, thus making it much easier to work close to the subject without having to flag the lens to keep extraneous light from hitting the front element . . . degrading the image. I use it strictly for macro work and have been very satisfied. Nuff said !

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Lens I'm very happy with the results this lens has provided. It gives nice clear, sharp images and if something larger than macro is nearby it becomes a nice portrait lens. The lens feels solid and well constructed. The focusing limiter is helpful but I've found that using AF has scared small skittish creatures away. If you need to switch from AF to MF you can do so quickly by sliding the focus ring back and forth an additional benefit of which is that you keep an eye on your subject through the eye piece. I have no problem recommending this lens..
