Introducing the Tamron SP 90mm f/2.8 Di Macro 1:1 VC USD lens

Tamron have updated their legendary 90mm Macro lens with a new, state-of-the-art optical design. The Tamron SP 90mm f/2.8 Di Macro 1:1 VC USD lens, reborn for the age of digital photography, offers VC (Vibration Compensation) and USD (Ultrasonic Silent Drive).

Adopting a rounded diaphragm, this lens carries on the long tradition of Tamron’s 90mm Macro lens in delivering spectacular background blur effects. Two XLD (Extra Low Dispersion) glasses and one LD (Low Dispersion) element reduce chromatic aberrations, yielding sharp images and outstanding resolution.

Tamron’s newly developed eBAND (Extended Bandwidth & Angular-Dependency) Coating delivers a dramatic improvement in anti-reflection performance - significantly reducing flare and ghosting for clearer, crisper images. The VC (Vibration Compensation) image stabilisation mechanism reduces camera shake to deliver sharp images and the lens features USD (Ultrasonic Silent Drive) to power a speedy AF drive together with a continuous manual focus mechanism.

As the IF (Internal Focus) system focuses by moving only the internal lens group, rather than the front lens elements, the overall length of the lens does not change when focusing, thus ensuring a broad working distance. The Tamron SP 90mm f/2.8 Di Macro 1:1 VC USD lens also features a moisture-resistant construction which helps prevent moisture from penetrating the lens.

For more information please visit the Tamron website.
