The Tamron SP 60mm F/2.0 Di II Macro is a small, compact macro lens for APS-C photographers, capable of true 1:1 reproduction. A maximum aperture of F2 and an equivalent focal length of 90mm makes it an attractive portrait lens, too. Focusing is internal, and full-time manual focus is possible. Construction consists of 14 elements in 11 groups, with a 7-bladed aperture diaphragm and a relatively small 55mm filter thread. A good choice for APS-C photographer that want to branch into macro and portrait photography, Tamron claims that the performance of the 60mm F2.8 is on a par with its legendary SP 90mm F2.8 macro.

Tamron 60mm f2.0 review with Nikon D7100
I have recently bought this "off brand" lens, and - even as time passed by - I am so happy with this – I decided to share my experience with you guys. I have not read much about this lens before. I have to say I accidentally stumbled upon this on Ebay, while I was contemplating to get a 60mm f2.8D Nikon Micro lens. I had used that lens extensively before, but got tempted to get a Non-Nikon “off-brand” and – oh boy, I am happy now! For those of you who wonder why I consider this lens great, I ...
Experience with a Tamron macro lens
I bought this lens in april 2014 to test it alongside my Leitz Macro Elmarit 60mm 2,8, allready on the first day I was surprised to see that the Tamron could match and even surpass the Leitz, the Tamron is very sharp, crisp with good contrast and colors all over. The Tamron is a pleasure to use for macro in every each way, only on very close encounter and the light coming from back, you need to dismount the lens hood because it can shade on the scene. So, now my Leitz is in the shelf and the ...

DX Portrait / Close-up Lens?
Hi, I’ve been shooting with my D3000 for several years now and I think it is time to reexamine my setup. I’m about to upgrade to a D3100/3200 or D5100, mainly for video and better high ISO performance. I’m not sure which direction I’ll go, but this isn’t my main concern. I currently have the kit 18-55 VR, the 55-200 VR and the 35/1.8. So far, 98%+ of my photos are with the 35/1.8. This is because I prefer to zoom with my feet, I like an unobtrusive look and I usually shoot in low light (often indoors). I’m relatively happy with the landscapes I’m getting, but not so much with the portraits and close-up shots. Therefore, I think it is time to buy a second prime lens in the 60-85 mm range. I’ve discounted the AF-S 50/1.8 because I think it is too close to 35 mm. So, the three lenses I’m thinking about are the Tamron 60/2 macro, the 60/2.8 micro and the AF-S 85/1.8. Overall, I’m looking for a portrait and general purpose lens. I’ve never shot macro before, but I think it is something ...
I'm a huge fan of the 85mm f1.8g for portraits. I also owned the 90mm tamron at the same timne and sold it after seeing the results from the 85. It's that good. Continue Reading
