Re: Tips for using a Tamron 90mm Macro

Congratulations with this lens purchase!

Tamron 90mm is wonderful lens, does very beautifu bokeh. Lens is sharp, and works well as short telephoto for landscape sections, and portraits. In macros it pulls great detail at minimal focussing distance. To get 1:1 - set camera to minimal focussing distance and move camera toward subject till focus is confirmed. CPL filter helps with detail definition a lot if surfaces are too shiny.

Person is taking photos, not camera. When photograph is bad, it's because photographer doesn't know how to choose settings optimal to "own preferences". Then blames camera for bad IQ.
This is same as blaming car about arriving to wrong destination.
