    The 90mm f/2.8 macro lens boasts high resolving power and sharp image depiction with ideal background blur, making it the ideal lens for close-up and portrait photography. With emphasis on portability, this macro lens is compact and lightweight. A wide, smooth focusing ring makes delicate manual focusing in the macro mode easy and precise.

    Di (Digitally Integrated Design) is a designation Tamron puts on lenses featuring optical systems designed to also meet the performance characteristics of digital SLR cameras. The “Di” design is achieved by applying a new optical multi-coating to its element surfaces.

    As part of the SP series, this is a high-performance lens featuring high design specifications.

    Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro USM vs Tamron SP Autofocus 90mm f/2.8 DI Macro Lens by photo.net

    This exercise has surprised me somewhat in that I knew the Tamron lens was considered pretty good, but I did expect the Canon model to be significantly better. In this test at least, this hasn’t proven to be the case. Both lenses display excellent sharpness and contrast, and the only significant advantage the Canon has is in it’s vastly superior flare control. Other differences are fairly minor: the Canon lens has better saturation, more working distance and better AF – it is clearly a superior product – but the Tamron does very well to come so close (and to even surpass the Canon lens at high magnification) especially when you consider that it is up against one of Canon’s very best.

    Tamron SP 90mm f/2.8 Di Macro Lens Review by The-Digital-Picture.com

    The Tamron 90mm f/2.8 Di Macro Lens is a popular short-telephoto macro lens – Popular because of its modest size, good image quality, decent AF (autofocus) and reasonable price.

    Tamron AF 90mm f/2.8 Di SP macro – Review / Test Report by photozone.de

    The Tamron AF 90mm f/2.8 Di SP is a superb lens without any significant flaw. In fact optically it is every bit as good, maybe even slightly better than the Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 USM macro. The lens has a very good build quality. Nonetheless it’s not quite as impressive as the Canon in this respect because it extends during focusing and regarding AF noise. That said the price tag is also somewhat lower so the verdict can only be – HIGHLY recommended!
