Views about Tamron 60mm f/2 macro
Jul 11, 2011


So I have been reading through various threads in this forum and general consensus seems to be that Tamron 60mm f/2 macro has exposure problems (seems to be documented in a few reviews online too.) Just wanted to put my own experience of clicking with it for last month or so here.

I haven't had any underexposure problems with it at any aperture till now. Maybe I just got lucky with my unit.

Autofocus can be extremely slow (on my D3100). But sharpness, now that is something that has left me impressed. I would let pictures do the talking here:

Overall I am very happy with it till now and am looking forward to test it as portrait lens, haven't had a chance to do so till now.
