Tamron 90MM F2.8 DI F/NIKON
From the Manufacturer
The latest version of the venerable Tamron 90mm Macro, this lens is widely used by naturalists and other pros who need top imaging performance plus a longer lens-to-subject (working) distance to enable easier lighting and access to skittish subjects. Improved resolution, chromatic correction, and coatings make it a superb choice for full-frame or APS-C format SLRs. Tamron introduces a new version of the famous 90mm macro lens for film and digital photography. Tamron's 90mm macro lens, often referred to as "the portrait macro" and loved by photographers all over the world, is now reborn as a Di lens that is perfect for use with both film and digital cameras.
SP AF90mm F/2.8 Di Features
Digitally Integrated Design (DI), is a designation Tamron puts on lenses featuring optical systems designed to meet the performance characteristics of digital SLR cameras.
Super Performance (SP) for Discriminating Shooters
Tamron SP (Super Performance) series is a line of ultra-high-performance lenses designed and manufactured to the exacting specifications demanded by professionals and others who require the highest possible image quality. In creating SP lenses Tamron’s optical designers put their foremost priority on achieving superior performance parameters—they are all designed to a higher standard with little regard for cost constraints. As a result, Tamron lenses bearing the SP designation feature impressive and innovative designs that have established an enviable reputation for excellence among those knowledgeable photographers that demand the very best.
Auto-focus/Manual-focus (AF/MF) Switch Mechanism on the Focus Ring
The ability to switch quickly between auto-focus (AF) and manual-focus (MF) is a great asset in many types of shooting, especially sports and nature photography. This is easily accomplished with Tamron’s ingenious AF/MF system. By simply sliding the focus ring back and forth between the two positions you can select either the AF or MF focusing position. In manual-focus mode Tamron lenses provide smooth, precise manual focusing by turning their wide, well-textured focusing rings.

I am an amateur photographer mainly focusing on macro photography, more specifically insects. Prior to purchasing this lens, I was using macro tubes. The tubes were ok for the interim until I could get a dedicated macro lens, but I found that in order to get good pictures I had to be really close to the subject, and while picture quality was good, was far from great. This lens allows me to focus on anything from almost any distance while taking stunning photographs.
Pros: Colors are great, and images are super sharp when able to focus properly. Not only for macro, but this is hands down the best portrait lens I own. I love the focusing range on this too, as like I said earlier, you can bring just about anything into focus with this lens at almost any distance from the lens. True 1:1 magnification is also superb to have in my arsenal of lenses. It's also a lot of fun to use, and the 90mm focal length really forces you to get creative.
Cons: My biggest gripe about this lens is how shallow the depth-of-focus gets at 1:1. At anything below f16 it is impossible to get the entire subject into focus. I believe this is inherent in almost all macro lenses, but I didn't have such a big issue with the macro tubes. If you are looking to take great macro pics using a wider aperature, you might want to look into focus stacking if you are unfamiliar because the area in focus that this lens allows at its largest f-stop when at 1:1 is a sliver of the whole picture you are trying to take. Build quality is also somewhat questionable as well, but seems good enough. The other gripe is that this is labeled as f2.8, but unless you have it focused to infinity, you wont get f2.8, as it drops off rather quickly as soon as you bring focus in any closer--for any real focusing expect f3-5. Also doesn't auto-focus on the nikon d3200 despite what reviewers say, and I tried hooking up my macro tubes to this lens just for fun and it wouldn't recognize the lens with them on.
Still, overall I am super happy with this lens and I take it everywhere. Picture quality and versatility alone make this one worth holding on to.
When I first got it, it seemed very light (weight-wise) and plastic-y. Doesn't feel like a $500 piece of glass. Construction is more Kia than Caddy. Yes, it hunts around at times and not the fastest when it comes to focusing. It's also locked up on me a couple of times (not auto-focusing, sounding like it's binding) and I had to go into manual and twist the focusing ring around to free it up. I have a long warranty and will try it more times before I panic, though.
I bought it reconditioned and used some gift cards plus other discounts to bring the price down as much as I could. As a $200 piece, no argument. $500? Not sure.
Image-wise, some very nice shots on my limited usage.
Buy when the price is right and warranty is in place.
Bokeh for portraits is very nice and astoundingly selective. You may need to stop down to get more of the frame in focus. Check the picture of the close-up of the mouth and flute: the focal point is very narrow. Macro is also as good as any other lens I've ever owned. When I bought my D750 I didn't yet have a macro or decent portrait lens, so this is it. (Update: I have a few others now.) I need macro because (good idea coming up) I photograph my business card and then lock the image so if the camera or memory card get away from me I have a fighting chance of getting them back.

Perhaps, I got a bad copy. I would have given 3 stars based on the optic quality alone. The picture quality is not bad. It's just I expect more from a prime lens. However, the construction and finish of this lens (which is not that good to begin with) is sadly better than some newer and more expensive lenses from even some camera makers. I have never tried the new Tamron G2 lenses and Sigma Art lenses; however, if Tamron and Sigma have further improved on the builds of their lenses, I'm somewhat confident to say that third party lenses have now surpassed some camera maker lenses at least in terms of construction.
I have bought new lenses from Nikon, Olympus and Pentax in the past 2 years; none of those lenses from camera makers have their serial engraved onto the lens barrels anymore--even the Nikon Nano lens that I got. To make things worse, the stickers on the Olympus and Pentax are semi-detached from the barrel right out of the box. The Pentax lens even had the gunk on the lens body and hood. I don't get how could Olympus and Pentax let these lenses released from their factories.
Before, I wouldn't consider buying 3rd party lenses. After this lens, I'm now considering Tamron G2 and Sigma Art lenses for my next lens purchases.
+ acceptable construction (not that good, but better than some newer and more expensive lens.)
+ Made in Japan, if you care.
+ Good price/performance ratio
- this lens auto focusing will not work with Nikon bodies that do not support in-lens motor.
- No image stabilization.
- No weather sealing
All in all, I recommend this lens.
