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.
