My new lens, Tamron SP AF 90 mm

After couple of months of research, finally I got my hand on this lens, The Tamron SP AF 90mm F/2.8 Di Marco 1:1. I’ve been told that this is a value for money lens and the image quality is superb either. It is a cheap and affordable Marco and portrait lens ! With just less then RM1500 with F/2.8, what else can you ask for ?

1st try on this lens does amaze me with it sharp and reasonably fast autofocus, especially when you mount it on a Nikon D60 body. White balance looks good. The only complain iI have is on the autofocus build in motor, it sounds rough compared to Nikkor lens, but then, for just 1/2 the price of a Nikkor lens, what do you expect.

I’ll post some photos later after fully learned about this lens, as it is a prime without VR, it require some skill adjustment to use it. Therefore stay tune for some results. If you are someone who are new to Marco photography and wanting to explore the Marco world without investing too much in equipment, try out this lens.
