Optimized for close-up shooting, the SP 90mm f/2.8 Di Macro 1:1 VC USD Lens from Tamron is a short telephoto prime designed for full-frame Canon EF-mount DSLRs. Offering a life-size maximum magnification ratio of 1:1, this lens benefits working with small and nearby subjects and employs a Floating System for maintained image quality throughout the 11.8" to infinity focusing range. One Low Dispersion and two Extra Low Dispersion glass elements are incorporated into the optical design to minimize chromatic aberrations and color fringing for clean, consistent sharpness and clarity throughout the magnification range. BBAR and eBAND coatings have also been applied to minimize flare and ghosting for increased contrast when working in strong lighting conditions, and a rounded nine-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality to benefit shallow depth of field imagery. As an update to the classic 90mm macro, this enhanced version is well-suited to the high-resolution crop of DSLRs and blends timeless appeal and functionality with current imaging performance. Supporting the imaging attributes is Vibration Compensation image stabilization, which minimizes the appearance of camera shake by up to 3.5 stops for sharper handheld shooting. Also aiding in creating sharp imagery, a precise, macro-optimized ring-type USD autofocus motor provides fast and well-controlled focusing performance. A dedicated USD actuator is used to refine focusing precision at close distances and also compensates for small amounts of camera shake common to working at higher magnifications. Additionally, the focus motor affords full-time manual focus control for a greater range of adjustment capabilities. A moisture-resistant physical construction enables its use in trying environments and the front element has also received a fluorine coating to guard against smudges and moisture from affecting image quality. Additionally, this lens is compatible with the optional TAP-in Console for fine-tuning focusing performance and updating the lens' firmware.Product Features:

This lens is simply INCREDIBLE. I'm usually a Canon junky, all Canon lenses. However, I decided to finally try a 3rd party lens after being disappointed with the 100mm f/2.8L from Canon. There is a serious benefit to buying from the little guy, they gotta work harder to win your business.
This lens is an L quality lens, the glass is sharp, zero chromatic aberrations, zero flare, zero ghosting, incredibly stabilization, and you save $150 for a far superior product. I'm not going to go as far to say Tamron's newer SP series trumps in every focal length, but this 90mm is hands down the only lens that is worth your time and money in the 85mm-105mm range. I will say that I am even considering selling my canon 85mm f/1.8, yes its a faster lens, but the VC (image stabilization) makes up for the f-stop difference. I can shoot at 1/13th shutter speed and have a tack sharp image. While using my Canon 85mm 1.8 I usually have to stay above 1/40-1/60 to be sharp, but might just be a shaky mess to begin with.
As far as macro capability, I attached some sample photos, it's important to remember this lens doubles as a portrait lens as well as a 1:1 macro.
It is noticeably sharper than to Nikon 105mm macro I tried but you have to pixel peep to see the difference. But on a macro lens that is a important difference. BTW Dxomark also rate the Tamron as sharper 26 P-Mpix for the Tamron 21 P-Mpix for the Nikor.
I think it focused faster than the Nikon 105mm too but I didn't get to compare them back to back, so I am less certain about this statement.
Please don't think I am bashing Nikon I'm not. Just in this case the Tamron seems to be a better choice it is cheaper and has a longer warranty (6 years) vs Nikor's "Nikkor lenses come with a standard one year USA limited warranty + a 4 yr. USA Extended Service Coverage for a total of 5 yrs of protection" not sure what the 4 yr USA extended Service Coverage covers.and it out performs the Nikor lens in sharpness and maybe focusing speed.
I highly Recommend this lens
The VC is fantastic and the AF is extremely fast and accurate on my D750 and D810. Haven't seen any chromatic aberration or fringing to speak of.
I rented the Nikon 105mm Macro for comparison (also calibrated with Reikan FoCal Pro 2) and found my Tamron to be a bit sharper and focus slightly faster than the Nikon.
Tamron has a firmware update for their new SP line of 90 Macro, 85mm, 45mm, and 35mm as of 4 months ago. Again, you need the TAP-in dock to install this update. If I remember correctly, the firmware improves the VC and AF speed. The Tamron Tap-In-Console For Nikon, Black is $60 on Amazon so it is a no brainer.
After 4 months of use I have no cons or regrets, the 90 is simply superb for food, fashion, beauty, product and portrait work. Plan on spending extra time in Photoshop fixing dust specks and imperfections on product photography and healing/cloning portrait skin blemishes, the amount of detail this lens records is simply brutal.
My next lens purchase will be Tamron's 45mm.
