Due to its focal length, the Tamron SP AF 90mm F/2.8 Di MACRO 1:1 is an ideal lens for portraits. Furthermore, due to the wide open aperture and its special form with 9 diaphragm blades, the lens achieves a very nice background gradient which virtually releases the portrayed person.
The legendary 90mm F2,8 has been available in different improved versions for over 30 years, and therefore stands in a long macro tradition in the super performance series. This light super performance (SP)* macro-lens offers a 1:1 magnification ratio and pin-sharp images with beautifully blurred backgrounds that make your subject stand out. The Tamron SP AF 90mm F/2.8 Di MACRO 1:1 version was adapted to the demands of digital SLR cameras and characterized by a new multi-coating with which the stray-light behavior of the lens was optimized. The Tamron 90mm is often called the “portrait macro”, because the focal length is also ideally suited for portraits. The new version can be also be used on full frame or 35mm cameras.
*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).
