Tamron SP 90MM F/2.8 Di VC USD Canon Macro Lens, Model AFF004C700
Experience the Full Power of Macro.
Experience the full power of life-size macro with the new 90mm refined for higher
detail and sharper photos with Tamron’s new eBand Coating, XLD optical design
and VC image stabilization.
- State-of-the-art optical and image stabilizing technologies combine to
create a new masterwork lens in the 90mm Macro.
Images of astounding sharpness, augmented by natural blur effects. Tamron’s
classic 90mm Macro lens is reborn to let you shoot even more beautiful, exquisite
images. Compatible with full-size SLR cameras, this new, high-resolution macro
lens lets the photographer capture the moment’s atmosphere at will.
- High resolution with beautiful blur effects
Two XLD (Extra Low Dispersion) glass elements(*1) made from specialized, high-grade
glass and one LD (Low Dispersion) element are combined to thoroughly correct
aberration. Moreover, the latest optical design and rounded diaphragm(*2)
deliver a spectacular blur effect. This macro lens maintains sharp focus on
the subject together with soft natural blurring of foregrounds and backgrounds
to achieve a richer, deeper feel in the image.
- New eBAND (Extended Bandwidth & Angular-Dependency) Coating
This new coating technique developed by Tamron deploys a nano-structured layer
(1nm = 1/1,000,000mm) of ultra-low refractive index, with dimensions smaller
than the wavelengths of visible rays of light. This nano-structured layer
coupled with the sophisticated multiple layer coatings underneath, yields
significant anti-reflection properties, efficiently reducing undesired flare
and ghosting to an absolute minimum to deliver sharp, crisp images.
- VC (Vibration Compensation)(*3)
This macro lens is equipped with the VC mechanism that delivers sharp and
vivid viewfinder images. Even in low-light situations, camera shake is reduced
to enable stress-free hand-held photography.
- 1:1 Maximum magnification ratio
The maximum magnification ratio of the new 90mm Macro is 1:1, which lets you
reproduce a life-size image of the subject on the image sensor. This lens
is suited to close-up photography of small objects, enabling the photographer
to capture the minute world that otherwise would be missed when viewed just
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-resistant construction
Moisture-resistant construction helps prevent moisture from penetrating the
- USD(Ultrasonic Silent Drive)
The quiet high-torque USD motor ensures a speedy and accurate autofocus response.
- Full-time manual focus
Fine focus adjustments using manual focus can be made during autofocus shooting,
without the need to change focus mode.
