Photo Review Editor's Choice - click to see the full review on their websiteTamron Model F004 - EISA Best Lens 2013-2014Images of astounding sharpness, augmented by natural blur effects. Tamron’s classic 90mm macro lens is reborn to shoot images even more exquisite. Compatible with full-size DSLRs sensors, this high-resolution macro lens captures even the tiniest details with stunning clarity.
As well, the addtion of Tamron's VC (Vibration Compensation)* makes this new lens ideal for general telephoto use such as handheld natural-light portraiture, where the wide maximum aperture is complemented by the image stabilisation.
USD (Ultrasonic Drive) autofocus provides a speedy, accurate response to faster-moving subjects.
Powerful resolution with beautiful blur effects
Two XLD (Extra Low Dispersion) glass elements** made from specialised, high-grade glass and one LD (Low Dispersion) element combine to thoroughly correct aberration. As well, the rounded diaphragm shape at wide apertures*** delivers spectacular blur of out-of-focus objects. Pinpoint focus on the subject and soft, natural-looking blur in foregrounds and backgrounds combine for images with a richer, more satisfying ambience.
* The Sony mount does not include VC, as Sony digital SLR bodies include image stabilisation functionality. The Sony lens is designated as “SP 90mm F/2.8 Di Macro 1:1 USD”.
** The XLD glass has an extremely lowlight dispersion ratio similar to fluorite.
*** The diaphragm retains a nearly circular shape at aperture settings down to f/5.6.
