Re: Tamron "Legacy" SP 90mm f/2.5 Macro Is A Winner!

Thanks for the sample, Bill. I have to admit you have some pretty tame prickly pear in NC. The ones we see in AZ & NM are covered in spines and are attack-trained!

I have a Tamron SP 90mm on the way, though it will take over 2-3 weeks to catch up with us (we use a mail forwarder while we travel). I also came across a Minolta 135mm/3.5 macro Celtic for $29. So I'll have a couple legacy macros to play with. By all reports the Tamron ought to be the winner hands down!

What are you using for an adapter? I've assumed I can use my LA-EA2 though it would serve only as a spacer. A mechanical adapter ought to work as well.
