    Tamron 90mm f/2.8 reviews

    SP 90mm f/2.8 Di Macro Autofocus Lens for Sony Alpha & Minolta Maxxum SLR is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 57.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A keeper 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Careful when using with an A77V. 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing clarity, Great value! I did some research when I purchased this lens, and looked at the images that people were getting. For me it was a bit of an investment and I wanted it to live up to what it was advertised to do. It was sent well packaged and quick... that day I tied it out! Very Happy with this product, it produces a fine crisp image in Macro or as a nice medium telephoto... it's fast and one of the best lens I own. Would recomend this to anyone that cares about the image quality they get. Also color saturation seems to be inhanced, a nice plus! Great for studio work as well, love it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent macro lens. Very pleased. Very versatile since it's a fine telephoto lens as well as a macro lens. Furniture photography is my primary genre and I've been extremely pleased with this lens in capturing high detail of woodgrain. Almost zero distortion as well, which is very important in furniture photography. Extremely sharp. In closup/macro shooting, focus is slow as macro lenses tend to be, but focus limiter helps. If you're using the lens as a telephoto, however, focus is beautifully fast on my Sony A700. I would certainly buy this lens overa again.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I started peeking in to small world... This is a great lens. Before buying it i spend few months reading reviews and discussing in online forums about this lens, then i cam to a decision to buy this lens. After that I have sepnd around a month looking for reliable and economic seller who sell genuine product with waranty. After getting the lens, I am completely satisfied and i feel i did not waste my time reading reviews and searching for the best seller. I primarily use this lens for flower and insect photography. Images are crisp and vibrant. Option to limit the focal distance helps a lot. This lense is very good for portrait too. Auto focus some times get confused while portrait photography, but limiting the focus helps a lot to come across this. With Macro photography any manual focus is mostly used.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My sharpest lens 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.
    Date published: 2012-03-28
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fine macro I have four fixed focal lenght (prime) macro lenses in the 90mm to 105mm range, that are great performers, and the Tamron 90mm 2.8 is one of them. It delivers images that are outstanding, in sharpness, clarity, flare control, color... And the build quality is very good. They really are buiding amazing prime lenses these days. The barrel is mostly plastic, but does not feel cheap in any way, and it contributes to the light weight. It has a focus ring that you move forward and backwards depending on if you're using AF or manual focus, and it is very smooth in manual focus. On the typical DSLR with a 1.5 focal lenght factor, the Tamron gives the coverage equivalent to a 130mm lens. The one I have is actually closer to 86mm or 87mm than 90mm, (going by the (remember slides?)image sizes taken with it, compared to images taken with Maxxum 100mm macro-all on tripod) but it's no big deal. It is one of the best lenses you can use for portraiture; any of the macros-Maxxum, Sigma, Tamron, or Vivitar-are able to show peach fuzz on a 3 year old kid portrait (on slide film) if you want that much detail. The Tamron comes with a deep lens hood, but I usually have it stored reversed on the lens.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Macro Lens, no autofocus on EA-LA3 adapter Very solid macro lens with good sharpness and easy to use focus controls. This lens works perfectly on a Sony a77m2 with good autofocus control. There was another review on B&H where the reviewer was using it on a Sony E mount using the EA-LA3 adapter. My current go to camera is a Sony a6300 and I have the EA-LA3. The lens works well with this combination, but what was not mentioned in the other review, is that this combination does *not* support autofocus. It's not a big deal if you are primarily using the lens for macro photography since you will likely want to use manual focus. However, if you are planning on using it as a prime telephoto and want autofocus, this is not the combination you are likely looking for.
