Re: Tips for using a Tamron 90mm Macro


I often put my camera in aperture priority to ensure more depth of field.  And I often end up in manual focus mode to avoid focus-hunting.  When auto focus is working it works well.  But, if it gets confused it starts hunting through the whole range.  Meanwhile, the bug has moved on and you've lost the shot.

I just recently moved from my old KM 5D to an A57, so I am really looking forward to having more latitude with ISO (to maintain fast shutter speeds when the lens is stopped down), and the much higher resolution.

My Tamron 90mm f2.8 macro is my favourite lens.
