  • Valie

    I’m a biologist and macro/nature photoraphy enthusiast. I’m always looking around for beautiful pieces of nature to shoot everywhere I go, and I’ll stop anywhere to shoot a flower, butterfly or spider.
    Today, I usually have to resort to my iPod with a macro lens for speed and closeness, or risk lose the subject due to the time it takes to equip my Canon 60D with my Canon 50mm and a close-up filter. The following picture was taken using such a filter. I believe the Tamron 90mm F/2.8 Di VC USD lens would really help me take the next step in macro photography and not have to lose shots, as it will certainly satisfy my need millions of times better than a set of filters.

    I love the versatility of zoom walkaround lenses. They help capture the fleeting moment, where things come together, without a plan, just to reproduce what the eye spotted here and now. The attached image is also made with such a lens, a wonderful little Nikon 1 10-100. However, I find myself sometimes longing for more macro capability and longer reach for my other camera – the Sony A77II. I use it mostly for studio work, but I think the Tamron 28-300mm Di VC PZD would make a wonderful companion for it for photo walks, street photo, improvised macro. I rarely use wide angle, so 28mm should be plenty enough even on APS-C (as my Tamron 28-75 2.8 proves too) and 300mm would make it an effective 450mm on the long end ;-).
    So to sum up, it should be there to catch what the sun decided to paint with its light – far away or close, rain or shine, ready to help – like a good, dependable, easygoing friend.

  • Gary

    The 28-300 would be a perfect lens for me since I do Landscape and sports photography with the need to go wide as well as close up. I would really like to have such a lens.

  • Plank

    I started doing photography with a dslr just recently and I really like it. And I know the 28-300 would improve my photography by being able to shoot a more variety of photos with one lens.

  • Zlatko M.

    Using my Tamron SP 70-300mm Di VC USD, i was able to catch the smallest sunset at distance of 10.000 meters from where i was standing!
    Now, if I’ve had some macro lens from Tamron to show you what was near me…

  • Aleks. Menkinoski

    My father is a photographer, so i’m using some of his lenses on my Canon 400D, but the problem is he is only using max. 135mm, and i want to take photos of airplanes from the nearby airport. So i convinced him to buy Tamron 70-300mm VC and now i’m very happy that i can take panoramic view of my place in the reflection of the plane !!!

    This was shot with the Canon EF 50mm F1.8 II, the SP 90mm F/2.8 MACRO VC could have made it better in the following ways:
    1.90mm would have given me a shallower dof. Besides the 9 circular diaphragm aperture blades would have given me a creamier background vs. 5 blades on the 50mm.
    2.The eBAND & BBAR coatings would have cut down the haze and given more contrast.
    3.Manual Focus Override (which is not on the 50mm) would have given me focussing flexibility once I had locked onto the targets.

    Besides the above, the construction of the 90mm would lessen my anxiety about the durability of the lens. Letting me worry more about composition instead. While this is macro lens I believe the focal length of 144mm ( on my EOS 70D ) and the optical construction (with the resulting clarity) would make it an exceptional portrait lens too.

    The SP 90mm F/2.8 MACRO VC would make a nice complement to my Canon EF 50mm F1.8 II. I don’t have a macro lens so this would also enable me to explore new areas in my photographic journey.

  • Milán Bodnár

    I like to take pictures of insects and bugs, which Tamron 90mm lens would be much easier, and also because of the brightness of the lens can be used at twilight

  • Beáta Bodnárné Csoma

    The duck waiting for thelast autumn sunray , Tamron 28-300 lens less confusing for wildlife photography.

  • The most important aspects of landscape photography for me is timing, quality and opportunity. The magnificent Tamron 28-300mm Di VC PZD lens offers the best of all 3. A lightweight travel companion with a fast zoom. The sharpness, full-frame and anti-reflection capabilities keep images looking great and A large focal range that means I will never miss a shot, no matter the weather.

  • Didier LIPPMANN

    I love macro photography very much and I still don’t have dedicated lens for that, I think
    that Tamron 90/2.8 would be very nice to catch beauty of the micro
