VC (Vibration Compensation)
This macro lens is equipped with the VC mechanism that delivers sharp, vivid images. Even in low-light situations, camera shake is reduced to enable stress-free handheld photography.
*** From a focus distance of 3 metres the benefits of VC gradually decrease as the focus distance becomes closer.
1:1 Maximum magnification ratio
The powerful maximum magnification ratio of 1:1 reproduces a life-size image of the subject on the image sensor. The Tamron 90mm Macro captures a minute world with a level of crisp detail that cannot be easily seen by the naked eye.
IF (Internal Focusing) System
The lens incorporates the IF system, which focuses by moving only the internal lens group. The overall length of the lens therefore does not change when focusing, thus ensuring a broad working distance. As a result, comfortable macro shooting is enabled.
Moisture resistance adds protection
Moisture-resistant body construction helps prevent water from penetrating the lens, making it well suited ideal for travel and shooting outdoors.
USD（Ultrasonic Silent Drive)
The quiet high-torque USD motor ensures a speedy, accurate autofocus response.
Full-time manual focus
Fine manual focus adjustments can be made during autofocus shooting, without the need to change focus mode.
The rounded outline diaphragm of the lens is retained even when stopped down to f/5.6. Blur highlights in a photo reflect the shape of the aperture, and they are a much more prominent feature at wider apertures. In this high-speed lens, this important optical design element results in more attractive, natural-looking images.
