I can assure you it does.......Wind the lens right out to it's full magnification then slowly move the camera in until everything is in focus! True 1:1 macro.....But note how the DOF drops off.....

All macro lenses in the range of 90-105mm be it made by Canon, Tamron & Sigma work the same way, although some lenses might not physically extend as the Tamron does.....In which case the focus ring has to be turned to it's fullest extent. It's only at this point you truly get 1:1 macro!

An amazing piece of work, I have been using the Tamron 90mm AF 1:2.8 Macro 1:1 SP Di since its launch date, and I have never been able to capture anything as large and detailed as this. I would be extremely kind if anyone could shed further light on this matter. "Or am I simply dumb?"
