Hey dryan2,

looks like a very capable lens you acquired there - obviously matched by equally capable hands I see :-) Good shots.

Did you buy this lens from new? and may I be bold as to ask what you had to pay for it?

Am in the market for another macro-capable lens besides my 18-55mm kit lens for my Nikon D40 and it looks like this one might fit the bill if it's somewhat cheaper that the Nikon alternatives in this range.

Cheers :-)

Try the manufacturer's product page.

OK, folks. Back on topic please, as this is intended to be a Lens Gallery. Technical questions should be asked in the Tamron forum. :idea: 8)

Pulling this one out of the history banks, as I recently added one of these lenses to my collection. I'm fairly new to macro, having only done some with a P&S and no close up lenses. I've also used it in a portrait capacity for some shots too - lovely bokeh, nice and sharp with this lens, just getting used to the super-narrow DOF.

These flower and bug samples were all handheld, taken with my first real outdoor test of the camera, in noon Florida light (harsh!), with my Sony DSLR-A550 -

Phlox:

I really like this lens. I use it almost exclusively for my flower shots.
