Tamron 60mm f/2 Di II LD IF Macro 1:1 SP AF
(From Tamron lens literature) Tamron Co., Ltd has announced the development of the SP AF60mm ƒ/2.0 Di II LD (IF) MACRO 1:1 (Model G005), a life-size macro lens designed exclusively for digital SLR cameras with APS-C size image sensors that offers a fast maximum aperture of ƒ/2.0.
The SP AF60mm ƒ/2.0 Di II LD (IF) MACRO 1:1 (Model G005), covering an equivalent angle of view of 93mm when converted to the 35mm format and boasting a maximum aperture of F/2.0—one stop faster than the F/2.8 maximum aperture found on conventional macro lenses in the same class—is a fast life-size macro lens that delivers dramatically attractive blurred background effects.
The new life-size fast macro lens from Tamron is expected to be made available in mounts for Canon, Nikon (with built-in AF motor) and Sony. Price and launch schedule will be announced at a later date.
