I've been looking for a nice cheap manual macro for use with my Sony kit for a while. Midwest photo had this Tamron SP 90/2.5 and I picked it up for $65! I've always wanted one of these, first because I've seen many samples and it looks pretty darn good optically, especially for the price, but I also love the absolutely tank-like look of the thick metal focusing ring.

It's in great shape. Exterior looks aged as you'd expect, but the focusing is very smooth and the optics are absolutely pristine. There's no oil on the aperture blades and practically

Thanks... I've read and seen samples of the sensor reflection issues. I have that too with my Olympus 50/3.5 Macro, but while that is a fine lens, the Tamron looks to be a fair bit better. For serious macro work, when I know I'll be shooting a lot of it, I grab my m4/3 kit with the Oly 60mm macro, which is phenomenal, but I have been lacking a good moderate macro to toss in the bag when I go out to shoot outdoors for general landscape work.

Zeiss CF Distagon 50/4 FLE and the Hassy CF to H adapter. I bought an H3DII-50 to use the back on my Actus and hadn't planned to get any lenses beyond the HC 80 I rented to test it, but that plan didn't last long.

Needed a portrait lens, torn. Between native Sony GM 85 1.4 and Nikon mount Milvus. Eventually picked the Milvus despite no AF and eye AF.. 🙈

Just picked up a mint copy of the C/Y 35-70/3.4 Vario-Sonnar. It's my first C/Y lens. It really is a beautiful little thing! Took it for a spin tonight:

Great minds really do think alike!

How do you like the 35-70/3.4?
