Sorry, I am talking about Tamron 90mm VC macro, for Nikon.

Doesn't seem to be a peep as to when Tamron might release and ship the Nikon version. The original September Tamron press release only mentioned that it would be sometime before the end of this year.

Here's a link for the Nikon version. Not in stock yet but you can order if you like.

Sheesh! For that much money I'd just go ahead and get the Nikkor 105.

I have the Nikon 105 macro and the Tamron 90mm macro,if I had to chose between the two, it would be the Tamron because of the deep rich color and better DOF control,also the Tamron double's as a excellent Portrait lens,but hay we are all different in our style and taste's........Tom

I thought the Tamron is not available yet, how do you have both? How does the f/2.8-32 on the Tamron give you better 'DOF control' than the f/2.8-32 on the Nikon? How does the 90mm on the Tamron differ from the 105mm on the Nikon for portraits?

"I thought the Tamron is not available yet...."

I imagine that is the old non-stabilized 90mm.

Must be 4 Thomas R. Beckers, 1 that owns both lenses, 1 that owns neither, 1 that cares about deep rich color and DOF control, and 1 that doesn't. Which Tom to take advice from? None.

Just my opinion,and we all know that everyone has their own way of looking at thing's.I am a Nom Vet, that only has one eye>Thank you Vietnam<So I may see thing's a bit different then most.Too me Photography is my Hobby.As fare as the new Tammy 90 VC lens goes ,we won't know what it will be like compared to the older version 90mm....................Tom
