Help needed on macro lens
Nov 8, 2013

Hello everyone

I'm about to buy a macro lens for my K10d and I considering the Tamron 90mm 2.8 because of its moderate price tag ( about 400 euros here in Greece) and because of its good optical quality. But there are many reviews talking about very slow AF speed and focus hunting! Has anybody in this forum used the Tamron lens?? Is the AF  really so bad? I would go for the Pentax 100mm WR, but the price difference is big and I'm also saving money for the K5 II. Thanks in advance for the input
