As a super performance (SP) lens, this lens belongs to the best macro lenses in the world. It has very good resolution ability, strongly decreased light fall-off up to the edges, minimized chromatic aberration and excellent stray light behavior making this lens the first choice for digital APS-C and full frame cameras. This lens was constructed for macro functionality; however, it also makes an excellent figure with medium-tele shots and shines with its extremely sharp, high contrast and high brilliant results. This lens stands in the tradition of the legendary 90 mm 1:1 macro.
Apart from the long focal length the lens also offers a big working distance, which is often required for capturing images of small creatures. Furthermore, the so-called FEC (filter Effect Control) allows the rotation of a polarization filter while the hood is attached. * SP ( Super Performance) – This lens belongs to the Super performance ( SP) class of Tamron lenses distinguished by ultra high optical and mechanical quality. The designation “Di” (Digitally Integrated Design) marks a generation of lenses, which have been specially adapted to the higher requirements of digital SLR cameras (APS-C and full frame).
