Tamron SP AF90MM F/2.8 DI MARCO 1.1

How do forum members feel about this lens for use with my K20. I would like to use this setup for marco/potrait shoots. I have read that this lens can serve both needs well. Any comments would be great. Tamron has a 60 dollar rebate good till end of August.With rebate could pick up lens for 339.00. Thanks!!

It's a wonderful lens. Here are a couple threads discussing its dual usage prowess.

I use this lens for Macros & Portraits, both in and outdoors. It is a fantastic lens. If you want samples, let me know. I can e-mail to you with a PM from you, or I can post a few smaller shots here.

BTW, Tamron rebates beat you home!
