    What she must have meant is that she is on a budget, so the 105VR is not for her...

    I prefer the Tamron to the Sigma for its far nicer bokeh and compact and lightweight design.

    Hi Nicole, addicted to Macro photography already? Hmm, if I am in your shoe I will choose Tamron 90mm, heard bro Grado said this lens has nicer bokeh. He got this lens, maybe u can borrow from him first and see whether you like it or not. Cheers.

    Mee too.. Sold my Nikon 105mm micro lens 2 months after I bought it..

    Can go for Tamron 90mm f2.8 micro or the Nikon AF 105mm f2.8 micro.
    They will appeared in B&S once a while, Tamron around $400 to $500
    and Nikon around $600 to $700.

    Tamron SP 90mm f/2.8 is still the best and cheaper than orginal lenses that anyone can buy for macro photography. Best result, some say even better than original.
