Tamron SP 60mm f/2 Di II Macro Reviews

One of the best

This lens is old fashion art as the old design looks good on this lens. Tamron made a effort to deliver something special, and it's a great lens above all others with similar specs but at 1:1 macro the colour rendition is a bit fade and autofocus is not as good as the ultra sonic drive in the tamron 90mm F2.8 macro but i think tamron wanted to keep the lens size small and that was a smart choice. I recomend this lens the bokeh is amazing and indeed is something unique. It's a statement from Tamron that makes you respect there brand.

Surpasses Expectations

I already owned the Tamron 90mm f/2.8 SP DI MACRO 1:1 VC USD but wanted an APS-C macro to pair with my new Nikon D7200's. Having read all previous reviews for the 60mm f/2 I was initially thinking of going with the Nikon AF-S DX Micro-NIKKOR 40mm f/2.8G simply because it was about half the cost and carried good reviews. I'm not a fan of Nikon's DX lenses (and I own 2) but have never been disappointed with any of my Tamron purchases so I decided to go with the Tamron 60mm - worst case I would return it if it didn't meet expectations.Needles to say, the lens has performed far better than anticipated. The AF is much faster than I expected based on other reviews and surprisingly quiet when compared to my 90mm. Manual focus is a bit touchy when starting out but easily adjusted to. The only negative I would mention in relation to focus is that it does not have a focus limiter as is present on the 90mm - has not turned out to be a negative for me and has not impacted my focus speed.Construction is up to Tamron's usual standards and the 6 year warranty can't be beat. It is also much lighter than I thought it would be based on other reviews - at 6 oz. less than the 90mm it's a little easier to hold stable when used by an old fart like me.There are plenty of reviews that dissect this lens technically so I won't waste your time by doing it again here. I would, however, recommend this lens to anyone looking for an excellent APS-C macro.

Great Macro!

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.

A Good Lens - Eventually

I used one of the original Tamron 2.8 90 mm Macro lenses for years on my full-frame film Canon, then a succession of  digital APS-C Canons. Always sharp. This new lens is a better focal length for the crop sensor. And much easier to work with. Results to date have been quite good - sharp, clear, nice bokeh. But I am sad to report that the initial shipment was a non-working lens. It would not focus at all, manual or automatic. B&H was quick to approve the RMA and provided the FedEx shipping label back to them. But the ground shipment return was 8 days across the US. Tack on a couple of days for B&H assessment of the return, then shipping a replacement, and it was three long weeks from order to receipt of a working lens. I feel that Fedex and Tamron let me down somewhat. B&H performed well (although exceptional service would have been to ship another lens as soon as the original problem was reported). I’m looking forward to more shoots with the new lens!

Manual focus play

Date: 2016-04-18

I shoot a lot of macros from a tripod with studio lighting. The focusing ring has a very noticeable play/slop. Because of that, it was extremely frustrating/difficult to get focus precisely in the manual mode. Tamron claims this play is normal.

question

Seems like the Tamron SP90 Macro gets better reviews than the 60mm Macro. Which would work better on my Sony A55 SLT A55V?
Asked by: Fred
It really depends on what you want to use the macro for. I have a 100mm macro (for Sony APS-C) and I find the distance to subject difficult to manage unless you are simply using it as a prime lens. Hence, this may be a good choice even if the lens is an older lens.
