Tamron Unveils New 1:1 Macro Lens, the SP 90mm F/2.8 Di VC USD

Tamron SP 90mm F/2.8 Di VC USD

The Tamron SP 90mm F/2.8 Di VC USD lens is a new 1:1 macro lens that will be available for Canon, Nikon and Sony Alpha mount cameras later this year.

As with the new Tamron 70-200mm lens announced today, the Canon and Nikon mount version of this 90mm macro lens will features Tamron’s Vibration Compensation, while the Sony model will not due to the presence of Sony’s sensor-based SteadyShot image stabilization system.  As such, the Sony models is designated as the Tamron SP SP 90mm F/2.8 Di USD.

Pricing for the new lens has not yet been announced. I would expect this lens to be priced in the $1000 range.  The current non-VC Tamron 90mm macro lens retails for $499 at present.
