Extremely sharp even when used at its maximum aperture, the Tamron SP 90mm F2.8 Di VC USD Macro 1:1 is one of the best macro lenses on the market, comfortably outperforming its legendary predecessor with the same focal length. Not only does it impress with its optical quality but also with its functionality. The lens boasts compelling features such as a moisture-resistant design, quick and near silent autofocus with an ultrasonic motor (USD) and image stabilisation. The Vibration Compensation (VC) system allows shake-free hand held pictures with shutter speeds of up to four stops longer than usual. With a remarkably low price for its performance and features, this lens is great choice for photographers interested in macro or portrait photography.
