Rebate on Tamron 90mm f/2.8

Tamron 90mmThis is a great lens! Right now there is a post-purchase rebate of $50.00 on it.

List Price: $499.00
Post-Purchase Rebate: $50.00
Price after Rebate: $449.00

The Tamron 90mm lens is compatible with  Canon, Konica Minolta, Sony, Nikon and Pentax DSLR Cameras.

This lens is always in my bag, I use it for macro, but also portrait and every day life! It’s great for indoors because of the f/2.8. I have a cropped sensor so it ends up being more like a 140mm on my 60d camera body. So I do have to step back a bit further when using it indoors. At my kids school performances it’s great! For what you get out of this lens, the price is great!

Tamron’s 90mm macro lens, often referred to as “the portrait macro” and loved by photographers all over the world
Tamron s world renowned 90mm macro has evolved even further by incorporating Tamron s Di (Digitally Integrated) optical design, making it ideal for use with both digital and film cameras. While inheriting the same optical configuration of the previous model, the Di version features a new optical design applied to its coated surfaces. The lens is recommended as an easy to use portrait macro lens for use with a film camera, and as a convenient telephoto macro on APS-C size digital cameras since it provides a full-size equivalent angle of view of 140mm.


This is a beautiful review of the 90mm lens as well as the circle of life…

Tamron AF 17-50mm F/2.8
