Tamron SP AF 90mm F/2.8 Di Macro…

by on Feb.24, 2010, under Life, Photography

I took the plunge last night and ordered a new Tamron SP AF 90mm F/2.8 Di 1:1 Macro lens.

This lens retails for about AUD$800 here in Australia but a little online research and I’ve ordered it from DWI (ships out of Hong Kong) for just over AUD$450 delivered including Hoya’s top of the range 55mm HD UV Filter.

My main aim for this lens is to use it for a nice fast portrait lens (effective focal length of 135mm on my DX Nikon D90 body) that I can use for shots of the kids (indoors and out) with what I hope will be a nice creamy bokeh and as a secondary attraction I can try my hand at some really close up macro work (flowers perhaps 🙂 ).

As yet the lens hasn’t shipped – however I’ve received an email indicating it should be dispatched within 24 hours and once I get a tracking number I can track it through and I’ll update on progress.

25/02@8PM It’s on it’s way – Fedex has it in Hong Kong.
26/02@10:30AM – Alexandria (Sydney)
26/02@11:30AM – on the Fedex truck! 🙂
26/02@4PM – it’s here!!
