    Tamron 60mm f/2.0 reviews

    SP 60mm f/2 Di II 1:1 Macro Lens for Canon EF is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 44.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really nice lens Just started getting back in to SLR photography after years away from my old Pentax K1000 and using nothing but point and shoots lately. I have this lens and the Tamron 18-270 VC PZD to go with my new Canon T3i. The few macro shots I have taken so far of leaves, strawberries, etc look amazing. The focus does tend to hunt a little but I have not relied on the auto focus for the final focus anyway. The lens also produces really nice bokeh at f/2.0. Don't let the focus issues myself and others have mentioned stop you from considering this lens. Overall this is a great lens.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Lens Advanced Amateur lens was purchased mainly for product pictures to be used in internet websites. Image quality exceeded my expectations. Tack sharp and able to obtain a very shallow depth of field.Great Bokeh. Build quality seems solid for a lens in this price range. I have the same issue of focus seeking in macro but I would not fault the lens for this. When I use under high light conditions it seems to lock right on. Probably caused by smaller C size of the image sensor in my Cannon 7d. Not really a big deal I just pop it into manual or use a reflector to increase the light. I would recommend it to my friends.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A lot of bang for your buck! I bought this lens with macro shots specifically in mind but it has quickly become my favorite all-around lens(My Canon 50mm f/1.8 is as good as sold), but it really shines in the macro range. Its feels like a solid, well put together lens (6 year warranty is a plus)and it has been consistently tack sharp, even shooting at f/2. The f/2 constant aperture allows for very shallow dof and nicely de-focused backgrounds, as well as low light shots. The AF likes to hunt around a bit but when it finds focus its spot on. MF is sticky, which makes it a bit harder to find proper focus...but it also makes it harder lose focus due to a bump or slip, so that may be a toss-up. Overall its an optically excellent lens with a couple minor hang-ups, but they will be quickly forgotten after the first few photos.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tack Sharp Bought the lens for Macro work, but love it for portrait and a general purpose lens too. Use it on a 60 D and Rebel XT. I have compared it to my 18-135 canon for macro and equivalent focal shots (60 mm on both lenses) and it is crisper and exhibits less distortion. Consistently better focussed shots as compared to my Sigma 28-70. Anterior lens is recessed behind the plane of the filter mount so less chance of getting bumped therefore probably won't buy a UV filter to protect it. Only negative so far is lens hood is oversized and creates a space issue in my already cramped camera bag.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT LENSE Tamron makes great lenses. I have used them with 35mm cameras such as the Canon A-1 and the Nikon F-3HP and have found them to be clear and sharp. They are easy to use and usually at a better price than Canon and Nikon lenses. As a Crime Scene Photographer for the Bristol Tennessee Police Department I became very adept at 1:1, micro, and macro photography which has carried over into my retirement years as a hoby. I now enjoy photographing nature and searching for unususal plant, animal, and insect life. I have found this lense to be easy to use and a great addition to the Canon 60D camera I am now using. The photographs I take are unusually clear and sharp with a wide renge of applications. The lense is light weight and rugged, focuses easy, and is simple to use. I really have found no down side to the lense at all. I would recomend the product to anyone who enjoys this type of photography.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great addition to a creative system If you are into macro photography this lense is clear and sharp & easy to use. It is easy to manually focus and quick when you want to use auto focus. I was a CSI photographer before I retired from the Police department and that requires clear & sharp 1:1 ratio photography as well as micro photography. I only wished I would have had this lense back then. I have found the quality of the Tamron lenses rivals any other lense I have used including Canon & Nikon but the price is more reasonable. I also own a Tamrom AF 70-300mm 1:4-%.6 Tele-Macro and have been very pleased with It's performance, Trigg McNew

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good lens, modest drawbacks I had wanted this lens for some time. When I saw the $100 rebate, I jumped at the chance to get it for less than the price of the Canon 60mm f/2.8. I've now had a few chances to use the lens in both macro and portrait settings on my EOS 50D. I am generally quite happy with it. Macro shooting was at a conservatory, using a tripod. Light was fairly low, so the default aperture tended to be wide open. The depth is, of course, quite shallow. Bokeh is very smooth and pleasing, for me at least. I took multiple shots, at successively smaller apertures, of the various subjects. Viewing them in sequence shows very noticeable vignetting wide open. At one stop down it is almost eliminated. I don't find it objectionable. I often add vignettes to images anyway. I am very happy with the sharpness. It is quite acceptable even wide open. At the middle apertures it is excellent. Even at f/22 the images look sharp at 100% viewing. The other situation I shot in was a family holiday dinner. While I've become very spoiled by Image Stabilization, I found that the wide aperture of this lens made up for the lack. In such a situation I would have been using my Canon 17-85mm (f/4 max). The Tamron 60mm f/2 did very well with normal household ambient light....without IS. Since I wrote my First Impressions I have found that the autofocus does hunt, and sometimes miss in lower light levels. However, the manual focusing works very smoothly. I used the lens in that mode for a lot the macro shots in the conservatory. I was pleasantly surprised at how well it worked at very close range. I would certainly recommend this lens for those like me who cannot afford L series. I can't compare it to the Canon 60mm, but the extra stop of speed is very nice, and the shallow depth can be very useful given the smooth bokeh.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great lens, just short of spectacular! Great optically, very sharp low distortion. Very light. The only 2 things that hurt this lens are no image stabilization and mediocre auto focus performance. The lens will hunt for focus for quite a while before locking the focus. Other than that it is a great lens, great for macro and for portraits.
