Because of the high magnification involved, any vibration compensation on a macro lens is welcome news. It's as important as in a long telephoto. So this upgrade is welcome news.
Tamron SP 90mm f/2.8 Macro Releases November 30th at $849This November 30th is the official release date of the new SP 90mm F/2.8 Di VC USD from Tamron. This new macro lens is an update of the older 90mm macro, and has many technological advancements - such as Vibration Compensation and Tamron's Ultrasonic Silent Drive.
Naturally, the lens has not changed completely. Tamron's 90mm lenses retains it's old optical characteristics that many photographers love and the company asserts that the rounded diaphragm and low dispersion - one LD and two XLD - elements all add to sharp images and superior blur.
This lens will be available in Canon mounts on November 30th. Approximate Retail Value is $849. Nikon and Sony mounts will follow soon we hope. No Pentax Mount?
