Re: Tamron SP 90mm f/2.5 macro

I absolutely recommend this lens as well if you want it to do double duty as macro.  But if you don't do macro, and you want a fast portrait lens, then there's no use trying to get under 200 dollar 85mm/90mm vintage lenses.  You're better with the Samyang MF 85mm/1.4. Often well under $200 used, very fast and better than most alternatives under 400 bucks.
