The Tamron SP AF 180mm f/3.5 Di LD (IF) Macro is a well-designed lens that's impresses on both APS-C and full-frame bodies

This fairly large (6.5" long, 3.3" in diameter), reasonably lightweight (32.5 oz, including removable tripod collar) macro tele covers the 24x36mm format in film or digital as well as the smaller APS-C digital format.

I hope to find time to complete a Tamron 180mm f/3.5 Di Macro Lens review at some point in the future. For now, please enjoy the standardized test results available for this lens. Here is an aperture comparison:

In my opinion, there is no doubt the Tamron SP AF 180mm f/3.5 Di LD [IF] Macro 1:1 is a superb lens, with many fine features. It is capable of producing excellent pictures in both the close-up and telephoto ranges. . The build quality is excellent, as is the detachable tripod collar.

This lens is ergonomically well designed and handled nicely. Despite it’s capabilities, it did not weigh heavily on a neckstrap and felt comfortable and intuitive to use. Usable on full frame sensors and 35mm film as well as cropped sensors, we did wonder whether the resolving power would be able to...

    Handles well and feels right., Good contrast, Good control of distortion and aberrations

    Pure resolving power is disappointing, Price a little steep for performance

At £700, half the price of manufacturers own, can the Tamron SP AF 180mm f/3.5 Di LD (IF) Macro perform as well as the higher priced models?

    Resolution when stopped down to F/5.6 or smaller, Fantastic control of Colour Aberrations, FEC is a nice touch, Good build quality, Good value for money

    Resolution at f/3.5, Slow auto focus, No focus limiter switch

The Tamron AF 180mm f/3.5 SP Di LD [IF] macro offers a near-flawless performance. Optically it doesn't leave anything to be desired - the resolution is very good to excellent from f/3.5 all the way down to f/16 and vignetting, CAs and distortions are non-issues in field conditions.

I spent countless hours researching for a good macro lens and basically had it narrowed down to the Sigma 70mm, Tamron 90mm and 180mm. I read complaints about how close you have to get with the 70 or 90mm lenses and decided that any extra distance I could place between myself and shy animals and...

I've wanted to get one of these lenses for a good while, and once I went up to a full frame camera, I found the range of 100mm to 105mm macro lenses quite short on a full frame body, and so I bought this Tamron.

I have always enjoyed macro photography and I have been doing 'okay' with my 18-200mm zoom lens. It would get me close enough that I could enhance the photo in photoshop and I considered the results acceptable but certainly nowhere close to perfect.

I purchased this lens at the same time as the well regarded 90mm version - Tamron market this 180mm as an ideal partner and that it was produced to match. They say lots of things as all manufacturers do on their marketing, and for once, I have to agree with everything they say!

Being an involved amateur, and loving macro photography (the first picture I ever sold, back in the '70's, was a macro) I wanted a good macro lens for my Nikon D80. The Nikon lens, however, was close to $1800. Couldn't justify that price past my wife. So I bought the Tamron . . . and I love it.

I am using the lens with a Nikon D80 Camera. As its been reviewed by others, it is a well-made lens. If you don't mind the extra weight (usually you will use the tripod so I don't think the weight would be an issue), this lens is highly recommended.

I was a little worried about buying a Tamron lens because I have not purchased one previously. I am sure glad I took a leap of faith. Fantastic auto focus capability and very easy to switch to manual focus. From every focal point your subject is brought into a clear, sharp and well defined image.

This is my first non-Nikon lens and I'm sorry I bought it. While the lens is OK, the focus mechanism is incredibly, painfully, agonizingly slow. The focus mechanism must make three full revolutions to go from closeup to infinity, stopping and stuttering all the way, and passing the focus point until...

This is a very good lens for macro and working in a studio setup, however don't count on the autofocus to work very well. I have a Canon 100mm macro and love it. The AF works reasonably well 50% of the time when shooting in a well lit area.
