    Tamron 60mm f/2.0 reviews

    SP 60mm f/2 Di II 1:1 Macro Lens for Nikon F is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 51.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Lens! Light, Small, Bright and the lens does not extend. Was hesitating between this one and Tamron 90, f/2.8. Finally ended up with Tamron 60 f/2. It's Light and small, so easy to hold in one hand even on a little heavy body like D7000. As it can go up (or down?) to f/2 (actually around f/2.2) and 60mm, it can be a perfect portrait lens too!! can't be wrong to get 2-in-1 lens like this. Oh, I did not forget as this lens is a Macro lens 1:1, the external flash is not necessary, just normal pop up flash (with a little diffuser) is too enough for close up flower shots or even hunt for the insects! Auto focus is normal for macro lens. When there's enough light, it's pretty okay, but it will hunt a bit when a little dark.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A good macro option The Good: Very sharp, accurate AF including at macro distances, light, small, FTM, pleasant bokeh. The Bad: Slow AF compared to Nikon/Canon AFS/USM w/FTM lenses - would not recommend it for action portraits or those of running kids, MF ring feel could be better (but still very usable for macro). The Ugly: Very inconsistent flash exposure (especially with bounce flash). Never experienced this with any of my Nikon glass (and this is one of the main reasons I switch from Canon a while back so definitely disappointed in this respect). Not sure if there's an issue with camera/lens electronics communicating properly.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good Intro Macro Lens This was my first Macro lens. I choose this lens first because it was a 1:1 macro and second because of the f/2. In sted of getting the nikon 50mm f/1.8 and a macro lens i figured i would get a macro and a fast lens, in one. After a year of useing this lens im happy with some of me pic but not most of them. Most of the come out blurry. It has a very slow auto-focus which makes it very hard to shoot any macro that is not still life. If you are looking to get into macro and want to see if you like it or not this would be a good cheep lens for you. If are serious about macro i would look else where, like any of the Nikon macro lenses or the tamron 90mm macro.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from SP AF60mm f/2 DI II LD I have been using this lens for macro and general photo projects for about a year on a D90. Because of it's speed and IQ it excels in both regards. I have found the continuously available manual focus can function to speed the auto focus process. Just manually set approximate focus. A very significant feature for sure. The dual aspect of the lens has reduced my kit by one piece of glass. And the Tamron 60mm provides a nice perspective as my walk around lens. I recommend it as a worth while consideration for a macro lens and as a fast prime in the 90mm equivalent range.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm keeping mine I'm going to try to add some info and clarity to the prior reviews. They are correct when they state the lens is sharp and has nice bokeh, but there are some other statements that need some additional information. For those of you limited to kit lenses this one is about the size of a Nikon 18-55 but has 150 grams more heft to it. It's not heavy, but it's clearly not a toy either. There are several things one must understand about macro lens, close up focusing, and DOF Depth of Field. There are 3 factors in play to calculate depth of field. 1. Focal length 2. Fstop or aperture 3. Subject distance. What this means is when you take a portrait of a person from x feet away you can easily reduce the DOF by moving in closer. Now why is this important for macro work? Simple, looking at what the lens is capable of you have f2.4 at 10 inches, and a DOF of just .05 inches. Many people are annoyed that the lens is not a true 2.0 lens up close, this complaint bears no weight. If the lens was f2 at this distance the DOF would be .04 inches instead of .05 inches. The difference is negligible in the real world. Next, the focus ring has play in it making exact focus very difficult. Yes there is play, about half a millimeter. This too is negligible, because in the real world if you try to focus hand held you'll probably move back and forth more than the total DOF available. In other words you are far better off focusing by moving forwards or backwards a fraction of an inch rather than messing with the focus ring. That's the reason they invented focus rails for macro photography, because DOF is much too narrow. DOF is so narrow that if you shoot at f2.4 you may only get half of a big bug in focus, or the center of a flower in focus and the tips of the petals out of focus. The question macro photographers should be asking is how well does the lens perform at more than f8. It seems to hold up pretty well. Because macro photography requires very precise focusing the focus ring turns a tad over 270 degrees. The original Tamron 17-50 focus ring turns a mere 90 degrees. I'd much rather have the precision here than that minor speed gain. And speaking of precision when I started shooting I was getting blurry photos. As required for macro photography (i.e. one subject) I reduced the number of focus points to one and after that no more blurry photos. And yes the focus motor is not dead silent, but frankly it's as close to silent as one is going to get with a conventional motor. Another negligible issue. The rebate process was painless. It's not perfect, but it's a great value.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Outsanding Optics I do not do macro photography. Also, I am not a portrait artist. I shoot outdoors. I have always been comfortable with the perspective of a 85-90 on 35mm or 165 to 200 on 6x7 medium format. On a crop sensor an 85 becomes a ( for all intents )135. That is great for head shots. for senic work when I want that much obvious telephoto compression I will go directly to my 180 ed if afd. So, on a crop sensor that lovely 85 to 90 ( in fx/35mm terms ) means 58 to 60mm. Gee, leaves a few macros ( mostly f/2.8 wich become f/4 up close ) or the wonderful Voigtlander 58mm f1.4 MANULAL FOCUS. Well, build qaulity aside,as well as excellent optics, the days of manual focus are long gone for me. Also, contemporary dslr viewfinders really do not facilitate manual focus and live view is a little time consuming and inconvienient for many situations. So, along comes third party lightweight 60mm f2 ( about f/2.8 at 3ft ) Tamron. I bought one. Let's get it out of the way 1st. Yes, it does tell the camera to choose ( in matrix mode ) an under exposure of one stop on both my d90 and d7000. It is my understanding that Tamron will correct this issue and that the latest lenes shipped have had this chip issue resolved. However, it is totally consistent and I do not want to give up the lens right now as it is so simple to compensate for. Now, the important stuff. On a d7000 this is one of those stand out special lenses, Yes it is very sharp. Many lenses are very sharp ie a nikon 35 afs f/1.8. But special lenses go way beyond sharp. This Tamron 60 f/2.0 is a special lens. It renders color,contrast,micro contrast,bokeh (try in English out of focus areas ),and renders a sense of THIRD DIMENSION in the ways only the really special pieces of lovely glass do. The stuff none of the reviews Lenstip,Photozone,DPR etc can explain. Back in the day no one would expect much from such a light easy to use lens or for that matter any camera the nimble size of a d7000. Well to those of you who can understand this is 35 years of demanding experience telling you that as a replacement for an 85-90mm for general senic work this is a lens you do not want to miss. Yes the af could be a hair faster, but there is nothing wrong with it. Metal is nice, but in reality poly carbonate is very dimensionaly stable stuff and easy to carry and aim. It is the picture (large print)that counts and this lens delivers.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent lens... This is a great lens. I wish it was a constant F2. It varies as it focuses. But thats the same as the Nikon 60mm too. Its a very sharp lens. Its a little slow on the focus and tends to hunt around some as it looks for focus. The image quality is excellent. I am using this on a wedding gig this weekend. I have tested it so far on some rings, insects and small parts and it does an excellent job. Insects are a bit hard because its only a 60mm. if you want to keep from disturbing the wild life I would go for the 90mm to be safe. Lens also has a very creamy bokeh.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! I received this product in the mail and loved it from the time I first had my hands on it. The 2/1 ratio on the focusing is great for full macro and doesn't seem that slow when using the lens for portraits. Speaking of portraits, you could buy this lens for specifically portraits and be very happy. It is sharp as a tack, and like I stated before the focusing motor is just about as fast as a normal prime lens. A great overall product. Definitely buy if you have the money and if you don't start saving!
