The Tamron SP AF 90mm Di F/2.8 VC USD 1:1 Macro Lens makes macro photography easier and more beautiful than ever. Boosting its already powerful Vibration Compensation (VC) with XY-Shift compensation, the fast f2.8 aperture allows you to shoot clear images with crisp detail and minimal shake. Its internal focusing mechanism allows you to take full advantage of its macro to infinity focal length for incredible close ups while the anti-reflection lens coating reduces ghosting and produces accurate colour fidelity. The high speed autofocus is powered by an Ultra Silent Drive and has a full-time manual override for precision control, perfect for any skill level. Compatible with the optional TAP-in Console for updating the lens’ firmware as well as adjusting focus settings via the TAP-in Utility software.
1:1 Magnification Ratio
Thanks to its 1:1 magnification ratio, the lens offers life-sized reproduction at its closest focusing distance of 30cm. Ideal for close-up photos of nature and insects, the lens brings out the incredible details in small subject matter that are usually too difficult for the naked eye to see.
Bright f/2.8 Aperture
The bright f2.8maximum aperture produces a beautifully shallow depth of field and performs well in lowlight environments. With its 9-blade rounded diaphragm, the out-of-focus background develops a lovely bokeh effect.
The lens offers 3.5 stops of vibration compensation to help you capture handheld images with confidence. Particularly handy in low-light, the electromagnetic VC mechanism works with a tri-axial coil system to reduce blur and deliver enhanced stability and tracking.
Versatile Focal Length – Macro to Infinity
Keep the lens on your camera all day thanks to the versatile shooting length. Perfect for a range of styles, from close-ups to portraits, the 90mm lens can focus from macro to infinity. Mounted on a full-frame DSLR or film camera, it has a short-telephoto focal range while on an APS-C sensor camera, it offers an equivalent focal length of approximately 140mm.
High Speed Auto Focus with Ultrasonic Silent Drive
Featuring a whisper-quiet Ultrasonic Silent Drive ring-type motor, the focussing mechanism is responsive and precise. Ideal to control your composition, the macro lens is equipped with a full-time manual focus override, so you can fine tune the focus for incredible accuracy.
Customise the focussing range of your lens to your own preferences using the built-in focus limiter. By locking your focus to a specific range, you can reduce focus hunting to speed up performance and optimise its accuracy to capture clear photos quickly, perfect for fast-action shots.
Internal Focus Mechanism
Thanks to the internal focussing mechanism, the lens retains its length for better balance. This allows you to get up close and personal with your subjects without disturbing them. The non-rotating filter mount accommodates a range of filters for creative effects.
Extra Low Dispersion Glass Elements
The optical design incorporates 14 elements in 11 groups to deliver exceptionally high resolution and outstanding sharpness. One LD (Low Dispersion) and two XLD (Extra Low Dispersion) glass elements correct chromatic aberrations, minimising colour fringing throughout the shooting range.
Anti-Reflection Lens Coating
Tamron’s multi-layer eBAND (Extended Bandwidth and Angular-Dependency) and BBAR (Broad-Band Anti-Reflection) coatings help suppress glare and sensor reflections to eliminate ghosting and flare. This results in better image clarity and contrast.
The front element is coated with a protective fluorine compound, perfect for outdoor photography. Water and oil-repellent, the coating allows you to clean dirt, dust, moisture and fingerprints with a simple wipe.
Robust and Ergonomic Design
Lightweight and durable, the metallic barrel is also moisture and dust-resistant, perfect for real world photography. Featuring large, ergonomic controls, the Tamron SP 90 mm F2.8 Macro 1:1 Di VC USD Lens can be operated quickly and easily. The rubberised texture on the focus ring ensures a comfortable grip over long periods so you can shoot all day without worry.
