    conclusion: Light and sharp
    I must say that I am impressed by the performance.

    Half the price but not half the quality.

    All images taken with a D70 pop-up flash and the Tamron 90 - hand held
    and focused manually

    thank you ernest_tad and espion

    these were shot yesterday at ASH - near my work place
    and only during lunch time

    but this is meant as a lens test, for people who want to know about this lens.
    I was quite suprised by the ease of use and quality of this excellent lens.

    though it extends a little too far.
    but as you can see the DOF is more than the 105. due to shorter focal lenght.

    Nice pre-pupation shot of the Common Mime caterpillar. Nice smooth backgrounds in most of the other shots too.

    The T-90 is a tried and tested macro lens and has got rave reviews on both the Internet and in magazines. Like its bigger brother the T-180, Tamron macro lenses are great value for money and perform on par (some even say better ) than their original manufacturers' counterpart macro/micro lenses.

    Nice image. Now I know my 90 can perform this well. Am never able to get that razor sharp think DOF line you get on your last 2 pics. Wonder why. hehehe.

    Also, did you apply any diffuser to the pop up flash or change any ev compensation settings coz the pictures looks good! Using 90 with D70s but could not really achieve your
    standard. So sad. =) I seek to improve.

    Anyway, where is this ASH? Alexandra Hospital? Thanks.

    Thanks a lot,
    tltan

    ASH = Ann Siang Hill

    Thin DOF: it could be due to the angle of view
    send me a link and I'll see if i can figure it out.

    No diffuser on pop up flash, but flash ev changed to either -0.3 or -0.7 (depends on subject) sometimes more for white subjects.

    Shoot more

    My flora shots cannot match your standard, so we are even.

    Wah...sifu is also master of macro, must learn from you again if got chance next time

    You definately have a keen eye for all this little creature, I am not sure how I can approach these as it seems like avoiding me no matter how patient I sat at one place

    Btw I saw you when I walk pass Kumon at Rivervale Mall last sunday but never bother to disturb you as you were busy taking to someone
