Product Highlights

    A New Chapter in the Legacy of Superior Performance

    Get closer than ever before with the SP 90mm F/2.8 Di Macro 1:1 VC USD lens by Tamron. Focused areas are crisp and detailed with naturally smooth, blended transitions to beautifully blurred backgrounds and edges. Image stabilization and vibration control (VC) has been optimized to work at all distances from macro to infinity, with a gyro sensor that detects camera shake and enables the lens to compensate for motion, even on the x–y plane. Auto Focus (AF) speeds have increased with advancements in Ultrasonic Silent Drive (USD) control software for improved accuracy with a rapid, yet silent response and an optional Manual Focus Override. And to ensure you can take your Tamron lens anywhere, the SP 90mm boasts a moisture–proof and dust–resistant housing so you can tackle the great outdoors and spend less time worrying about weather conditions. Designed specifically for your Nikon DSLR body, the Tamron SP 90mm macro lens is your high–performance solution to micro photography.

Details from Tamron

    LD and XLD Lens Elements

    The optical construction includes one LD (Low Dispersion) glass and two XLD (eXtra Low Dispersion) glass elements, that in consonance, helps to control lateral and on–axis chromatic aberrations at a very high level. While both offer significantly low dispersion characteristics compared to regular glass materials, the XLD provides prominent dispersion properties across the visible spectrum.

    Superiority of eBAND Coating

    eBAND (Extended Bandwidth & Angular–Dependency) Coating and BBAR (Broad–Band Anti–Reflection) Coating work in tandem to achieve exceptional anti–reflection. These technologies enable dramatic cut–off of ghosting and flare when shooting against the sun or under adverse lighting situations to deliver high–fidelity images without inducing noise.

    eBAND Coating is a nano–structured layer deployed on the lens element surface. In addition to regular anti–reflection coatings, eBAND Coating offers higher transmissivity and significant improvement in anti–reflection characteristics especially against angulated incident rays.

    Optimally Tuned USD Actuator

    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.

    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.

    Focus Limiter

    As the shooting distance to the subject is determined, the photographer can choose to manually limit the travel range of the focusing group. This reduces the amount of time that it takes to focus on the targeted subject, making it possible for swift AF operation and preventing a precious photographic moment from slipping away.

    Full–Time Manual Focus Override

    A USD (Ultrasonic Silent Drive) is used for the AF driving system in the SP 90mm F/2.8 MACRO VC. The integration of a full–time manual focus override mechanism enables a photographer shooting with AF to instantly make fine focusing adjustments with manual focus, without having to switch back and forth between AF and manual focus modes

    Circular Aperture to Produce a Smooth–Edged Bokeh

    A 9–blade diaphragm is configured to retain a smooth, circular–shaped aperture opening even when stopped down by two stops from the wide–open aperture. This produces a smooth–edged bokeh in background light spots and avoids rugged aperture geometry.

    Fluorine Coating

    Fluorine coating, originally developed for use in industrial optics applications, has now been applied to the lens to offer long–lasting oil and water repellency. The water–and–oil–repellant coating applied to the front element surface instantly repels dirt or smudges for ease of cleaning and maintenance. The coating is also durable to accompany the photographer on outdoor travels for years to come.

    Internal Focusing (IF) System

    With the IF system, the working distance from the front element to the subject does not change during focusing. The distance of 139mm is maintained even during close–ups. This allows the photographer to secure distance away from live, sensitive subjects and to prevent a photographer’s shadow from intruding and disrupting a precious photographic moment.
