Lightweight and good built quality but...
My previous experience with macro lenses is very limited (only used a Nikkon 40mm f2.8 before). What I found with this Tamron lens is that the effective aperture of the lens changes according to the focal length. You cannot use f 2.8 at macro distances (0.29 m for instance) due to "bellows effect". Apparently this happens to other lens too. But I was expecting to be able to use 2.8 to closer distances and it was a surprise this for me. Probably part of my lack of research plus the description of the product not mentioning the fact :( Overall I am not disappointed but I still have to learn to get advantage of this lens. As this does not have VC ( vibration compensation) system this lens is more suited for use with tripod but I expect that in days with good light I’ll be able to handle decent sharp shots handheld at decent shutter speeds ( at least 1/60 or so). It is a sharp lens in general and I have just found that apparently the color rendition is little bit brighter than I expected. I still have to look into this since I just received the lens yesterday and I haven’t downloaded the tests to my PC. 4.0 starts, great value product.

sharp but ...
its sharp but aperture gets smaller the closer you get to your subject. Normal focusing distance to infinity f2.8 is available but when you start to focus closer like at 5ft the widest is f3.2, at 2ft widest available is f3.5, at 1:3 magnification f stop changes to 4, at 1:2 f stop is 4.5 and by the time you get to life size widest available is f5.6.

Don't confuse the earlier model with this one!
Tamron model 272E Macro for Canon -for a fuller version of this see my guide on the same subject First the CAUTION: The Tamron SP AF90mm F/2.8 Di Macro 1:1 for Canon Model 272E is a new revision of an earlier 90mm Tamron macro lens. The older lens should be considerably cheaper, so make sure you know which one you are bidding on. The features of this new model are redesigned for improved functionality for digital cameras. DESCRIPTION The lens is a little over 10 cm long when focused to infinity. It is about 15cm (~6") long when focused to its closest distance of 0.29m (0.96 ft) for 1:1 reproduction. In the case of the Tamron 90mm, the deeply inset front lens element means that the actual distance from the front of the lens barrel, however, is only about 10cm (~4") from the subject. There is room for lighting of the subject being photographed--an advantage over shorter focal length macros that may leave only a tiny space between the front of the lens and the subject--but clearly if distance from the subject is critical, a longer macro lens such as 180mm focal length may be a better choice. The Canon version of this lens has no aperture ring markings on the lens, unlike the Nikon and Pentax versions. Aperture is displayed in the viewfinder and on top of the camera, of course. LENS QUALITY The lens is very sharp, and has done well in tests and reviews. It is also relatively fast for digital lenses. BOTTOM LINE Is this lens a good buy? As an on-line search will reveal, there have been a number of reviews of this lens by major photo magazines, and my reading of them is that this is a lens that is among the top contenders for macro lens quality, regardless of manufacturer. Careful eBaying will reveal occasional real bargains for this lens, but even at its regular mail order discount price, it can be highly recommended. (see a fuller version of this at my Guide on the lens)
Excellent lens for the money
This is an excellent lens for the money and when used on a APS-C camera yeilds great macros. On ebay be very careful and ask the buyer to verify the lens type. I would say over half the lenses on ebay are mis represented as to the lens type. There are many models of these lenses and people pick stock photos of lenses and show the wrong ones, buyer beware ALLWAYS clearly see what you are buying. This lens is excellent and auto focuses on the D-40, D-3100 and D-5000 series Nikons. Even as I review this the model is wrong! the plain 272E is the old version the lens I purchased was the 272 ENll.
Tamron 90MM 2.8 Macro for Nikon
Simply a spectacular lens. For the money, one of the best macro/micro lenses on the market today. From a price comparision, this lens is less expensive than the 105MM Nikkor VR Micro by $200-300 and about the same as the Sigma. A used 105MM Nikkor 2.8D runs slightly more than this lens for an absolute comparision. This lens is one of the sharpest and rendurs a very nice bokeh (out of focus elements) of any lens I have ever owned (for reference, I own a Nikkor 28mm 1.4D) The Good 1. Tack Sharp 2. Fantastic Bokeh 3. Easy Manual Use 4. Toggle between manual and automatic is genius (push pull) 5. Good for both macro and portrait photography 6. Works great on both DX and FX format cameras (internal motor works on D40/D60) 7. Deep recessed front element (avoids bumping your subject with the front element) 8. 7 Year warrenty (Tamron stands by their lenses) 9. Light - makes for great portability 10. On a DX sensor you get a 1.5 crop for a focal equivolent of 135mm! The Bad 1. Construction is not as eugged as the Nikkor or Sigma 2. AF in macro mode tends to hunt (most the time in macro you are using manual so its not often its problem)
