A full Tamron 60mm f/2.0 Di II Macro Lens review may be completed in the future, but for now, please enjoy the standardized test results and other information available.

Macro lenses are highly sought after for a variety of uses, from close ups to portraits and landscapes. Their quality is expected to be exemplary and the only disadvantage tends to be a fairly modest maximum aperture.

The Tamron 60mm f2 Di II macro is a good lens with high sharpness and low distortion, even wide open, at both normal and macro focusing distances. The fast f2 aperture allows creative use of DOF effects, provides a sightly brighter image for focusing and can be used to better blur backgrounds in...

Introduced at the end of March of 2009, Tamron's new 60mm is finally hitting the shelves at the camera stores. What makes this lens stand out more than anything else is its fast f2.0 lens. That's not a typo its a full stop faster than the competition's f2.8 lenses.

The world's fastest 1:1 digital macro lens ($570, street), this is also the fastest Tamron, and its first to allow manual focus while in autofocus mode. It has a very tight closefocusing distance, and it belongs to Tamron's top-tier SP family of Super Performing lenses.

The Tamron SP AF 60 mm f/2.0 Di II LD (IF) Macro 1:1 is a splendid lens in many respects. The quality of its optics is beyond reproach. The lens provides sharp images at all apertures and across the frame. Most of optical aberrations is corrected well or even in an exemplary manner.

    compact, light and sealed barrel,, good fastness increasing the range of uses of the lens,, splendid resolution both in the centre and on the edge of the frame starting up from the maximum aperture,, slight chromatic aberration,, low distortion,, well-corrected astigmatism,, good work against bright...

  • -

    significant vignetting at the maximum relative aperture,, weak performance of focusing mechanism.

The Tamron AF 60mm f/2.0 SP Di II is a welcome addition to the range of 60mm macro lenses. It shows very high sharpness and pleasing bokeh, with its large aperture allows for nice subject separation and therefor qualifies for many more usages than just macro shots.

The Tamron AF 60mm f/2 SP Di II macro is an attractive lens for various reasons. There is, of course, the very large max. aperture of f/2 which should be usually fast enough to replace a conventional 50mm f/1.8 lens for low light and shallow depth-of-field photography.

positives: Sharp Fast Build quality negative: None yet, maybe price I *LOVE* this lens. It has a wide comfortable focus ring with smooth action, creamy bokeh, fast aperture, quick focus, easy AF/MF switch and takes DAMN good pictures. I'm not sure what there is to dislike.

For 60mm macro, I wouldn't advise anything, but this lens! Due to it is f2.0, it is nice for portraits as well.

  • +

    Unique f2.0 aperture! Brighter than any other 60mm Macro lens.

    Build quality and autofocus reaction could be better.

Macro photography is now a new joy to my main hobby. The lens is light and easy to use and the results are good. One thing you must NOT rotate the focusing ring when the camera is switched on and the lens is trying to automatically focus - the Tamron leaflet says this.

Overall the camera has nice optics, but unlike more contemporary lens offered by Tamron, this glass only has micromotor instead of USD drive, which makes its focusing action relatively slower. In case the subject moves during this, you may lose focus. Also this lens has no vibration compensation.

I love this lens. It's sharp and no real CA in normal shooting conditions. Overall, an excellent lens with a great working distance for macro and well worth the price. I am building up some sample shots on my Flickr with this lens for those who might want to see actual results before making a...

I picked up this lens recently because I needed a lens for small products photography. So despite having portrait shooting abilties I haven't had the chance to use this in those situations.

I use this lens with a Canon 60D. This is my first macro lens am very happy with it. I have been able to take some amazing macro shots of textures, flowers, and insects. It also produces some fantastic portraits, with excellent bokeh, thanks to its large aperture, which also allows you to take great...

I use this lens as much as I can. The pictures come out perfect and it's everything I wanted out of a prime lens. It's true macro ratio 1:1. Definitely get this lens when they offer those $100 rebates. Well worth it.
