Tamron introduces a new version of the famous 90mm macro lens for film and digital photography. Tamron’s 90mm macro lens, often referred to as “the portrait macro” and loved by photographers all over the world, is now reborn as a Di lens that is perfect for use with both film and digital cameras. The coating of the lens is improved for digital use.
“Di” (Digitally Integrated Design) is a designation Tamron puts on lenses featuring optical systems designed to meet the performance characteristics of digital SLR cameras as well as film cameras. When mounted on an APS-C size digital SLR camera, it provides a focal length coverage equivalent to 140mm, close to telephoto macro lens.
The external design is improved as one of the Di series of lenses. The focusing ring features an improved rubber pattern that fits your hand well and makes the lens easier to handle. The lens is also equipped with a one-touch switchover mechanism to quickly perform one-touch switchover from AF to MF by simply sliding the focus ring back and forth. (For Nikon AF-D and Canon AF mounts only.)
Tamron’s SP (Super Performance) series is a line of high performance lenses with high design specifications. This series of lenses featuring impressive and innovative designs are concept models among Tamron lenses.
