Tamron 180mm f/3.5 Macro – The Big Lens For Extreme Macro Shooters

leave a comment »

The Tamron 180mm f/3.5 Macro is a wonderful lens, ideal for shooting extremely small and moving subjects such as insects. I had great fun shooting with this lens, though it is a bit on the expensive side at a street price of $700.It has an excellent finish and a solid feel. Although it has twice the reach of the Tamron 90mm f/2.8 Macro lens, this lens performs as good optically.

I mainly used this lens to shoot insects and small critters pictures and I’m always pleased with the results.There’s only one minor thing that can be improved on this lens: make the autofocus faster. To me, I always use manual focus with a Macro lens, so this is not an issue for me. However, this will be an issue for amateur user who still rely on autofocus when doing macro photography.The Tamron 180mm is also excellent for portrait work. It gives good results, sharp with creamy bokeh.This lens can be used with both cropped sensor and full frame sensor cameras. This is a great advantage for people who have dual configuration DSLR system (cropped and full-frame).

To conclude, this is an excellent lens to handle. It gives you professional results for both macro and portrait photography.I have a feeling that Tamron will release an update for this lens soon, but they haven’t confirmed it yet. For macro shooters that want to bring their game to the next level, this lens is the deal.
