Comments about Tamron 180mm f3.5 SP Di Macro Lens - Sony/Minolta:
Having spent a year with a 90mm macro trying to shoot insects that were no longer there because I was too close for their comfort it was a great relief to find that the extra working distance this lens gives you does indeed give you many more opportunities to get decent shots. It is as sharp(very) as the Tamron 90mm and has a great bokeh. i had to sell a very nice guitar to get this lens and have no regrets in doing so. The autofocus isn't great and the weight takes some getting used to but I would recommend this lens to anyone interested in macro work(it's good at the telephoto end too).
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
