Re: Macro???

I am led to beleive the Tamron performs well beyond it's price point and should be considered a very good buy (and I don't normally rate Tamron).

Re: Macro???

Like Soup I too have heard very good things said about the Tamron 90mm although I have never owned or used one.

Re: Macro???

Own and use the Sigma 105mm, so I'll put a good word in for it!

Will even post a couple of shots from it later

Re: Macro???

I've also got the Sigma 105mm, love it to bits, my mate (sgotwr) has the Tamron 90mm, to be honest not much difference in either, quality wise, I think (sgotwr will possibly dissagree) the Sigma just beats the the Tamron on Auto focus speed.

Hope this helps

Ian

Re: Macro???

Markulous had me thinking the other day with his water drop reflections. "This site makes my head spin". I have tried alot of magnificaton lens adapters and so forth, but I am taking a guess here that you need a "real marco" lens to control the F-stop to pick up a reflected image. anyway, have looked at the 100mm canon, but will definitely take a good look at the Sigma. I herd somewhere the Tamron makes the sigma brand or the other way around?

Re: Macro???

As said, the Tamron 90mm is rated as giving excellent images but reviews say that build quality is a bit on the downside. You mentioned the Canon 100mm in your last post, which I have, and it is class and quality through and through.......but you will pay more money

Biggest downside to adding anything to achieve a larger image is that there's more glass for light to travel through, so less sharp (and a loss of aperture)

If it helps anyone making a decision, the main differences between the Canon 100mm and the Sigma 105mm are:
Canon features internal focussing - so lens is fixed length and doesn't rotate, lens doesn't extend out towards the subject
slightly heavier
better build
faster focussing
more expensive
min aperture f32 (Sigma f45)

Re: Macro???

All my macro images are taken with a tamron 90mm macro.
best investment i ever made. Pin sharp.
Just wish i could afford the 180mm they make.

Re: Macro???

I use the Sigma 180mm macro and have never had cause to complain, I know it's a longer focal length than the others you are considering but it means you have a better working distance which can be good for nervous bugs.

Have a look at the macro section of my website to see what it is capable of.

Re: Macro???

Wow still more feed back now I think i'm still leaning towards the Tamron but portraits are to be concidered as well so the 90 mm focal length comes into play !!!
