Tamron announces SP 90mm F2.8 Di Macro and TAP-in console for Sony A-mount
Japanese optical manufacturer Tamron has announced it is to launch its exciting 90mm macro lens in a Sony A-mount, and that Sony users will now be able to update and customise some of their Tamron lenses using the company’s TAP-in lens console. The Sony version of the SP 90mm f/2.8 Di Macro 1:1 USD will be the same as the versions produced for Canon and Nikon users, but will not feature Tamron’s Vibration Correction system as Sony cameras have their own in-body stabilization.
The TAP-in console allows customers to tune focus, update firmware and customize features such as focus limiters and full-time manual focus in those lenses that offer them. The console is compatible with the latest batch of Tamron fixed focal length lenses, including the 85mm f/1.8 which the company has yet to launch in Sony mount.
The SP 90mm f/2.8 Di Macro 1:1 USD and the TAP-in console will be available from 25th August. Although the press release doesn’t mention prices, the console for Canon and Nikon users currently sells for $60/£55 and the lens for $749/£579.
