Overview

Overview

The Tamron 60mm f/2 Macro is a high-resolution macro lens achieves the overwhelming brightness of F/2, while at the same time preventing increases in aberration variations that may occur with the adoption of the large aperture. The adoption of two large LD (low dispersion) lenses allows advanced correction of chromatic and other aberrations. The new BBAR (Broad-Band Anti-Reflection) multi-layer coatings and internal surface coatings (coatings on cemented surface of elements) have also been introduced to thoroughly reduce ghosting and flare.

This lens' working distance of 100mm, the longest in its class, means that an appropriate distance may be maintained while still enjoying 1:1 macro photography (when hood is not attached). Due to the internal focusing system employed, the overall length of the lens does not change when adjusting the focus, achieving major improvements in ease of use. 

To prevent the lens from growing in size due to the adoption of the F/2 maximum aperture, the internal construction of previous macro lenses was reviewed, and the accuracy and precision of all components has been improved, resulting in a compact lens with a maximum diameter of only 73mm. In addition, through extensive use of precision molded components using highly reliable plastic engineering, the lightness of the lens is without compare, and its size enables use in a wide range of photographic situations in the field.

With a maximum aperture of F2, the extensive soft blurring effect produces a beautiful contrast between the in-focus and out-of-focus areas. This fast lens is specifically tailored to deliver this dramatic blurring of the background while placing the subject in sharp focus, enabling a three-dimensional effect so difficult to achieve in images taken with slower lenses. The extremely shallow depth of field means that even previously nondescript small objects can become the subject of a photographic work of art when captured with the fast F2 aperture.

The intricate details of the world around you that can't be seen with the naked eye can be captured by Tamron's 60mm macro lens. The maximum magnification ration of 1:1 will bring a whole new range of unique textures and appearances to your photographic expression, allowing you to produce and capture rare moments of beauty.

Lens Magnification Factor: No
Lens Magnification Factor:
This is the magnifying factor of a lens. Macro lenses will often be described by their “magnification factor”. A lens with a 1:1 magnification factor produces a projected image on the sensor which is the same as the subject.

Elements / Groups: 14/10
Elements / Groups:
The individual pieces of glass that form the overall optical construction. Most lenses have between four and eleven elements to bend the light rays to ensure a perfectly formed image appears on the light sensitive surface, such as a film or CCD. The elements are arranged in groups and may be seen in specification sheets as, for example, 6 elements in 4 groups. That configuration may have two single elements and the other four grouped in pairs.

Macro Magnification Factor: 1:1
Macro Magnification Factor:
A lens with a 1:1 magnification factor produces a projected image on the sensor which is the same as the subject. A 1:1 magnification factor is usually considered the minimum for a lens to be described as a “macro” lens. Specialist macro lenses are often 1:3 or even 1:10 magnification factors, meaning that 1mm across the subject becomes 3mm or 10mm when projected onto the sensor, thus 3 or 10 times magnification.
