Re: Tips for using a Tamron 90mm Macro

The most basic tip is to use it in manual (M) mode.  Also, if you have a static subject, take multiple shots whilst adjusting the focal plane then combine the images as a focal stack which when done will give you a sharp fully focused image of the entire subject (this can be hard hand-held, so best done using a tripod).  Try it for portraits as well.  Super lens BTW as are the Minolta AF 100/2.8 and Sigma AF 105/2.8.  Tokina AT-X 100/2.8 is 1:2 as is the Cosina (or any variant thereof) AF 100/3.5 MC in native form, but still gives superb results at a budget price.
