Tamron SPAF 90mm F2.8 Di Macro Lens

Recently got this lens as part of my set for my Sony Alpha350 Camera. Not had much of a chance to play with the macro side of it, as this is a new area for me, but have put in some shots at various ranges and conditions, with little digital editing other than processing from RAW to Jpeg using Capture 4.

1# Aperture Priority setting F2.8 - 1/320 - ISO100 (Hand Held)- Morning sun was breaking through the clouds from lhs.



2# Manual Mode F4.5 - 1/4000 - ISO400 (Hand Held)



3# Aperture Prority F3.2 - 1/320 - ISO100 (Hand Held)



4# manual Exposure F6.3 - 1/3200 - ISO400 (Hand Held)

Re: Tamron SPAF 90mm F2.8 Di Macro Lens

one thing I can't understand, ISO 400 and shutter speed 1/4000? Why would you ever use so much ISO at so much light?

Thanks for sharing these, I like to see Tamron pictures. I have looked at the lenses but I don't own one. You never can tell though.

Re: Tamron SPAF 90mm F2.8 Di Macro Lens

Having had a little more playing with the lens and trying my hand at Macro (still learning), i thought i would put these 2 shots up as they shot the lens at macro.

These were taken hand held, F10 - 1/80 ISO 100

Re: Tamron SPAF 90mm F2.8 Di Macro Lens

I have this lens too and I am just starting to practice with it. Though when I received it, I thought it had a plasticky feel and I was wondering what I had just purchased, now it does great macro shots. (Great in the sense that I am satisfied with my first shots and I certainly am not a specialist in that field)
I am amazed that this Tammy can also make beautiful "long" shots such as yours up above.
Cheers.

Like the macro shots. My problem always seems to be the wind not the lens (....er I mean atmospheric distubance not the other kind!!!!!!!!!! )
