    Default Macro lens

    Any to recommend? Tight budget as usual so will less than $500 get me a fairly good 2nd hand one? Was recommended a Tamrom 90mm. Please give comments.... thanks!

    The tele part is ok, and i agree on the slow focus. In addition, i really don't like the front barrel protrusion when focusing.

    Tokina 100mm also a very good choice. Nice and bright, very sharp too.

    Using the Tamron SP90mm Di f2.8 myself....never regrette buying. Good, sharp macro lens.
    No worry bout the slow focusing, using manual focus for all my macro shots. No wory bout the f2.8, not using f2.8 for any macro shots......normally used f16 n above for macro..

    Just my 2 cents.
    Cheer n Gd luck

    Perhaps you can give Sigma 105mm f2.8 EX macro a look as well. A decent piece of glass. I have one and are satisfied with its performance. No harm checking out both the Sigma and Tamron .
