A New Chapter in the Distinguished History of Tamron’s 90mm Macro Lenses. A Legacy of Superior Optical Performance Now Reaches a New Plateau with Enhanced VC Functionality and Advanced Features. The SP 90mm F/2.8 MACRO VC (Model F017) is the most recent release in a successful line of Tamron SP 90mm macro lenses. It redefines the best in advanced features and succeeds a legacy of superior optical performance. Get yours from Parallel Imported today!
Outstanding Depictive Capabilities and Anti-reflection Efficiency
The lens features an optical construction of 14 elements in 11 groups, including one LD (Low Dispersion) and two XLD (eXtra Low Dispersion) glass elements that in consonance help to control lateral and on-axis chromatic aberrations at a very high level of performance. A Floating System works in tandem with the optical construction to efficiently compensate for inherent aberration changes subject to varying distances. Therefore, this lens ensures seamless and outstanding depictive capabilities across the entire shooting range – close or far.
Commitment to Extending a Legacy of Bokeh with Elegance
Tamron has maintained a reputable standard for generations of 90mm macro lens models — all the way from manual focus lenses to the current AF models — for their exceptional depictive quality with spectacular bokeh. We also set a high standard to keep pace with the upward migration of digital cameras with advanced technical features and high pixel density.
Featuring VC with Shift Compensation
An accelerometer has been newly integrated into Tamron’s highly accredited VC to compensate for shakes on the x-y plane. The accelerometer in unison with a gyro sensor detects and enables motion compensation for camera shakes for a maximum efficiency in image stabilization optimized for distance ranges from infinity to macro.
Optimally Tuned USD Actuator for Macro Photography with Manual Override for Instantaneous Focus Control
The USD (Ultrasonic Silent Drive) control software has been optimized for macro photography with increased focusing speed and positional accuracy when shooting in close-up settings. The AF drive responds rapidly yet quietly to zero in on the photographer’s point of interest and the Manual Focus Override enables instant shift in focus when necessary.
Moisture-Proof and Dust-Resistant Construction
Moisture-Proof and Dust-Resistant Construction has been improved to an exceptionally high standard in lens protection, preventing any intrusion of dirt, dust, or raindrops. A rubber seal protects each switch on the lens and sealing member is applied to the mechanical interface between the focus ring and the lens housing. The new construction further expands opportunities for shooting, ensuring reliability even in harsh, windy conditions and immediately after rainfall.
