Which Macro? Tamron 60mm, Sigma 70mm DG, Sigma 90mm
Aug 19, 2012

Hey all,

Up until now I've been using Vivitar AF macro tubes but I'm really thinking about finally getting a dedicated macro lens.

I'm a little stuck between deciding which of the three for various reasons I'll list below, but I just wanted to get feedback on any users that have or do own and can compare.

I'm really interested in the Tamron 60mm it's gotten rave reviews and the wide f/2 is really appealing. However, the Sigma 70mm is DG and I kind of want to future proof my lenses, as I have a feeling in a few years I'll probably go to a full frame a99 from my a77. Then there's the 90mm Sigma it's got a little more range than I think I want, but they can be found for at least $100 less than what I pay for the other two. On

Dyxum all 3 are rated around the same area so those numbers only make my decision more difficult.

Hoping some experienced users here could chime in with their experience/opinions, I really could go in any direction without more information.
