The 90mm f/2.8 SP Di MACRO 1:1 USD Lens for Sony from Tamron
is an updated version of their popular 90mm macro lens. It features an
Ultrasonic Silent Drive Motor for fast, smooth and quiet autofocus. A
continuous manual focus mechanism provides precise manual focus,
especially important with this lens' 1:1 macro capability. And an
Internal Focusing system means the front lens elements do not rotate and
the lens does not change length when focusing, also important for macro
shooting. In addition to macro capability, this 90mm lens is also
considered to be an ideal lens for portraiture.
dispersion elements and one low dispersion element reduce chromatic
aberration and make for sharp, high resolution images. Newly developed
eBAND hybrid lens coating combines conventional multi-coating with a
layer of nano-structured coating for particularly uniform light
transmission and minimal reflection. This reduces flares and ghosting in
An extra large and ridged focus ring and moisture resistant construction give muscle to this optically impressive lens.
Note! The Sony mount does not
include Vibration Compensation, as Sony digital SLR bodies include image
stabilization functionality. The Sony lens is designated as 90mm f/2.8
SP Di MACRO 1:1 USD.
