Owner reviews: Tamron SP 90 mm f/ 2.5 Adaptall-2 model 52B

Period of use: 2 years

Strengths:

Great glass, very sharp


Weaknesses:

Super heavy, especially with the 2x extension it makes the lens longer and puts a lot of strain on the camera body weight wise; my wrist hurts each time I use it for more than 15 mins, if I don't support the lens by the body


Comments:

Love the performance, picked this up for around $45, great macro!
