Hey Guys,

I have been looking for a macro lens for my a77 and thought I found a winner in Tokina 100mm 2.8 (love the brand since I got my 11-16 2.8) but they don't make the lens in alpha mount. I was looking at Sony equivalent, but after looking at few reviews (photozone included), I am having difficulties justifying twice the price of Tokina for a lesser lens.

Any other lenses worthy? Tamron 90mm? Sigma 150mm?

I would like a lens that is very good at being a portrait lens as it would be at macro work. And I don't care if its new or used (would not mind old Minolta glass for example)


Thank you for your time.

I think tamron is a decent lens . If you are not that skilled photographer you can buy it . I bought it and is a fine lens . Sony may be better , but I had nice results with mine so i'm happy with it .

Is just a small collection from my tammy lens . If you have money buy the Sony . I heard is better . If you cant shoot at all, buy an workshop class . I could post much better photos than these but many losers from this forum steal photos and claim they own them . Even Sigma Turkey stole photos from me made with tamron . Anyway , GL with your choice .
