- Tamron SP AF 90MM F/2.8 Di Macro VC USD Lens
To become the prime lens that ensures optimum close-up photography performance, the Tamron SP 90MM F/2.8 Di VC USD Lens is equipped with Ultrasonic Silent Drive (USD). Quickly capturing images without disturbance, VC (Vibration Compensation) is present to reduce hand stress without sacrificing image sharpness. The Full time Manual focus with auto-focus captures the best shot possible and a 1:1 maximum magnification ratio makes it possible to produce life-size views added to its F/32 aperture and ø58 filter diameter. The lens's eBAND (Extended Bandwidth & Angular-Dependency) coating acts as an anti-reflective property that help ensure image crispness and sharpness. Its extensive technical prowess is backed by its lens’s moisture-resistant construction to assure premium photography performance within and without. It is compatible with APS-C and Full Frame Sensor DSLR Cameras.
Product Features in Detail
Super Performance for Discriminating Shooters
Tamron SP (Super Performance) series is a line of ultra-high-performance lenses designed and manufactured to the exacting specifications demanded by professionals and others who require the highest possible image quality. In creating SP lenses Tamron’s optical designers put their foremost priority on achieving superior performance parameters—they are all designed to a higher standard with little regard for cost constraints. As a result, Tamron lenses bearing the SP designation feature impressive and innovative designs that have established an enviable reputation for excellence among those knowledgeable photographers that demand the very best.
State-of-the-art optical and image stabilizing technologies combine to create a new masterwork lens in the 90mm Macro.
Images of astounding sharpness, augmented by natural blur effects. Tamron’s classic 90mm Macro lens is reborn to let you shoot even more beautiful, exquisite images. Compatible with full-size SLR cameras, this new, high-resolution macro lens lets the photographer capture the moment’s atmosphere at will.
High resolution with beautiful blur effects
Two XLD (Extra Low Dispersion) glass elements(*1) made from specialized, high-grade glass and one LD (Low Dispersion) element are combined to thoroughly correct aberration. Moreover, the latest optical design and rounded diaphragm(*2) deliver a spectacular blur effect. This macro lens maintains sharp focus on the subject together with soft natural blurring of foregrounds and backgrounds to achieve a richer, deeper feel in the image.
New eBAND (Extended Bandwidth & Angular-Dependency) Coating
This new coating technique developed by Tamron deploys a nano-structured layer (1nm = 1/1,000,000mm) of ultra-low refractive index, with dimensions smaller than the wavelengths of visible rays of light. This nano-structured layer coupled with the sophisticated multiple layer coatings underneath, yields significant anti-reflection properties, efficiently reducing undesired flare and ghosting to an absolute minimum to deliver sharp, crisp images.
VC (Vibration Compensation)(*3)
This macro lens is equipped with the VC mechanism that delivers sharp and vivid viewfinder images. Even in low-light situations, camera shake is reduced to enable stress-free hand-held photography.
1:1 Maximum magnification ratio
The maximum magnification ratio of the new 90mm Macro is 1:1, which lets you reproduce a life-size image of the subject on the image sensor. This lens is suited to close-up photography of small objects, enabling the photographer to capture the minute world that otherwise would be missed when viewed just by the naked eye.
The lens incorporates the IF system, which focuses by moving only the internal lens group. The overall length of the lens therefore does not change when focusing, thus ensuring a broad working distance. As a result, comfortable macro shooting is enabled.
Moisture-resistant construction helps prevent moisture from penetrating the lens.
USD（Ultrasonic Silent Drive）
The quiet high-torque USD motor ensures a speedy and accurate autofocus response.
Full-time manual focus
Fine focus adjustments using manual focus can be made during autofocus shooting, without the need to change focus mode.
Internal Focusing (IF) System
Internal focusing (IF) provides numerous practical benefits to photographers including a non-rotating front filter ring that facilitates the positioning of polarizing and graduated filters, and more predictable handling because the lens length does not change during focusing. Even more important, Tamron’s Internal Focusing (IF) system provides a much closer minimum focusing distance (MFD) throughout its entire focusing range. In addition, IF improves optical performance by minimizing illumination loss at the corners of the image field, and helps to suppress other aberrations that become more troublesome at different focusing positions.
Extra Low Dispersion
Lens elements are made from specialized high-grade glass and have even more effective dispersive properties than LD elements. The result is a lens that delivers sharp contrast and better resolution.
Using a rounded diaphragm, this lens achieves spectacular blur effects. By distinctively blurring backgrounds and foregrounds this high-speed lens creates images that bring your subject into focus, thus to life.
