A new release, destined for the hands of close-up Photographers
This release from Tamron, is a fantastic update of their 90mm Macro lens, which features exceptionally sharp optical performance and a VC image stabiliser to reduce the appearance of camera shake. The short-telephoto focal length is excellent for getting in nice and close to minuscule subjects, where 1:1 magnification allows for true-macro performance. Closest focus is 30cm and while you are working in close, AF performance is superb thanks to the updated USD focus motor. This New Tamron SP 90mm f2.8 Di Macro lens is sure to find its way to the front of many Macro lover’s cameras.
Super fast and accurate AF performance
In the Macro field selective focus is critical, with virtually no margin for error, and a shift of just a few millimeters can be the difference between focussing on a bug’s eyes, or their back. To counteract this, Tamron’s already speedy and quiet USD focus motor has been tweaked to optimise it for Macro shooting. Accuracy has been increased so you can make sure you will always have the correct area in focus in your photographs and just incase you are not entirely sure, this lens allows for full-time manual override. The chances of you not having the perfect focus in your finished product are very slim.
In another handy advancement from Tamron, the SP 90mm f2.8 has been fitted with Tamron’s excellent VC stabilisation with XY-shift compensation, which offers to reduce camera shake by a remarkable 3.5 stops. This highly-effective stabiliser drastically reduces the need for you to carry a tripod around, allowing you to travel light and free, and to take your pictures much quicker due to less setup time. When shooting in close, even the slightest amount of movement can shift your focus point and ruin what could have been a wonderful image, but this VC stabiliser can compensate for any of these slight movements, helping you to maintain your carefully selected focus point and produce more pleasing and refined macro images.
