Tamron 90mm f/2.8 SP Di MACRO 1:1 VC USD Lens

The Tamron 90mm f/2.8 SP MACRO 1:1 Di VC USD Lens is a modernized version of their popular 90mm macro lens. It now features Vibration Compensation image stabilization technology for diminishing camera shake blur plus an Ultrasonic Silent Drive Motor for quick, smooth and quiet autofocus. A continuous manual focus device provides exacting manual focus, especially essential with this lens' 1:1 macro capability. An Internal Focusing system keeps the front lens elements from rotating and the lens never changes length when focusing, important for macro photography. In addition to it's macro capability, this 90mm lens is also thought of as an ideal lens for portraits.

A pair of extra-low dispersion elements plus one low dispersion element diminish chromatic aberration and provide sharp, high resolution images. Recently developed eBAND hybrid lens coat combines conventional multi-coating with a nano-structured coat for notable uniform light transmission and minimal reflection. This diminishes flares and ghosting in your images.

An extra large, ridged focusing ring along with moisture resistant construction provides strength to this optically impressive lens.
