Wow, it's been exactly 4 months and 2 days since I got this lens, but I still hardly have any samples and product photos of this lens at all.

What? Four months and I haven't touched the lens?!

Do you ever get the feeling that you have in your hands something so awesome, something wonderful, something sacred that even God and Satan team up to tell you that it is forbidden to touch it -- that you end up being afraid of using it? That's how I felt.

On my crop sensor Nikon D5200, 90mm acts like 135mm (in full frame equivalent). While many users are getting a Nikkor AF 85mm f/1.8 D for portraiture and shooting in low light, which is not a macro lens at all -- I feel that this Tamron lens is a halfway compromise, having the functionality of a macro lens, and a maximum aperture of f/2.5. Even so, it is still a desirable lens.

This lens has a maximum magnification of 1:2, so a 2x teleconverter is the way to get 1:1. When shooting macros, I want my aperture at f/8, even at f/32.

This lens proudly carries Tamron's designation of 'SP' (Superior Performance), an assurance that you're getting the best possible optics. This lens is from 1979, but it doesn't feel any shame to compete with today's high-end prime lenses in terms of image quality.
