Tamron SP 90mm F/2.8 Macro 1:1 Di VC USD Lens - Canon Mount
100% Genuine Australian Stock
2-Year Tamron Australia Warranty
Images of astounding sharpness, augmented by natural blur effects. Tamron SP 90mm F/2.8 Macro 1:1 Di VC USD Lens is reborn to shoot images even more exquisite. Compatible with full-size DSLRs sensors, this high-resolution macro lens captures even the tiniest details with stunning clarity. As well, the addtion of Tamron's VC (Vibration Compensation) makes this new lens ideal for general telephoto use such as handheld natural-light portraiture, where the wide maximum aperture is complemented by the image stabilisation. USD (Ultrasonic Drive) autofocus provides a speedy, accurate response to faster-moving subjects.
VC (Vibration Compensation)
This macro lens is equipped with the VC mechanism that delivers sharp, vivid images. Even in low-light situations, camera shake is reduced to enable stress-free handheld photography.
1:1 Maximum magnification ratio
The powerful maximum magnification ratio of 1:1 reproduces a life-size image of the subject on the image sensor. The Tamron 90mm Macro captures a minute world with a level of crisp detail that cannot be easily seen by the naked eye.
IF (Internal Focusing) System
The lens incorporates the IF system, which focuses by moving only the internal lens group. The overall length of the lens therefore does not change when focusing, thus ensuring a broad working distance. As a result, comfortable macro shooting is enabled.
Moisture resistance adds protection
Moisture-resistant body construction helps prevent water from penetrating the lens, making it well suited ideal for travel and shooting outdoors.
USDä__Ultrasonic Silent Drive)
The quiet high-torque USD motor ensures a speedy, accurate autofocus response.
Full-time manual focus
Fine manual focus adjustments can be made during autofocus shooting, without the need to change focus mode.
The rounded outline diaphragm of the lens is retained even when stopped down to f/5.6. Blur highlights in a photo reflect the shape of the aperture, and they are a much more prominent feature at wider apertures. In this high-speed lens, this important optical design element results in more attractive, natural-looking images.
Tamron's unique VC mechanism uses a proprietary actuator and algorithms to deliver an extremely stable viewfinder image with excellent tracking. The tri-axial system uses three driving coils to move internal optical components within the VC lens electromagnetically, based on signals originating from three ball bearings, made from either steel or ceramic. The VC lens elements are held in place only by contact with the balls, achieving smooth movement with minimal friction.
Tamron's original moving magnet system employed a heavy magnet positioned near the moving VC lens element. The improved VC reverses the positions of magnet and coil and attaches the VC optic to the coil. This moving coil is lighter than the magnet, and as this reduces the load on the drive system, both the VC unit and the lens are lighter and more compact.
Ultrasonic Silent Drive
Tamron’s USD works with the high-frequency ultrasonic vibrations that are produced by a ring called a ‘stator’. Energy from the vibrations is used to rotate an attached metallic ring known as the ‘rotor’. Piezoelectric ceramic is a material that produces ultrasonic vibrations when voltage of a specific frequency is applied is arranged in a ring formation on the stator. This electrode configuration of piezoelectric ceramic causes two ultrasonic vibrations to occur in the stator. By effectively combining these two ultrasonic vibrations, it is possible to convert the energy from the vibrations that produce simple motion into energy known as ‘deflective travelling waves’, which move around the circumference of the ring. The friction between these deflective travelling waves created on the metallic surface of the stator and the surface of the rotor produces force, causing the rotor to rotate. Attached to the rotor is the focusing lens, which is given a fast, smooth autofocus movement.
Fine manual focus adjustments can be made quickly and easily
The USD motor is complemented by DMF (Direct Manual Focus) to enable manual fine-tuning after autofocusing if and when necessary. No need to engage a switch - just gently rotate the focus ring on the lens.
New eBAND (extended Bandwidth & ANgular-Dependency) Coating
This new coating technique developed by Tamron deploys a nano-structured* layer with dimensions smaller than the wavelengths of visible rays of light. Its ultra-low refractive index, combined with the sophisticated multiple-layer coatings underneath, yields significant anti-reflection properties, absolutely minimising flare and ghosting to deliver sharp, crisp images.
