Tamron 60mm f/2 Di II Lens. The Tamron SP designation is reserved for lenses developed with special emphasis on extraordinary photographic performance. Engineers are free to innovate in an uncommon atmosphere where optical performance comes before price, resulting in lenses that satisfy the demands of discerning photographers.
The SP 60mm F/2.0 Di II Macro derives its exceptional imaging performance from one of photography's revered optics—the Tamron SP 90mm F/2.8 Di Macro. The SP 60mm F/2.0's focal length and digital imaging design properties bring the picture angle characteristics and macro performance of the SP 90mm to APS-C format photographers. A remarkable best-in-class F2.0 maximum aperture enables low light shooting at lower and more desirable ISO settings. Producing a picture angle equivalent to a 93mm lens on a full frame DSLR or 35mm film SLR, the SP 60mm is ideal for portraiture and general photography. Here too, the F2.0 maximum aperture extends creative opportunities by rendering attractively obscured backgrounds and foregrounds. The heart of the SP 60mm enables breathtaking close-up images with a reproduction ratio up to 1:1 (life-size). Precise Internal Focusing (IF) is augmented by full-time Manual Focus control which makes fine tuning easy.
Recommended for APS-C photographers who...
- Prize prime lens characteristics
- Avoid compromise in close-up performance
- Value the performance characteristics and shooting possibilities that only fast, constant-aperture lenses can provide
Tamron Di-II lenses are engineered expressly for digital SLR cameras with image sensors commonly referred to as APS-C, measuring approximately 24mm x 16mm. Rendering an ideal image circle for APS-C sensors, Di-II lenses also include properties to optimize digital imaging performance. Rely on Tamron Di lenses designed for digital SLR cameras.

Super Performance for Discriminating Shooters
Tamron SP (Super Performance) series is a line of ultra-high-performance lenses designed and manufactured to the exacting specifications demanded by professionals and others who require the highest possible image quality. In creating SP lenses Tamron’s optical designers put their foremost priority on achieving superior performance parameters—they are all designed to a higher standard with little regard for cost constraints. As a result, Tamron lenses bearing the SP designation feature impressive and innovative designs that have established an enviable reputation for excellence among those knowledgeable photographers that demand the very best.
Low Dispersion (LD) Glass for Greater Lens Sharpness
Low dispersion (LD) glass elements in a lens help reduce chromatic aberration; the tendency of light of different colors to come to different points of focus at the image plane. Chromatic aberration reduces the sharpness of an image, but glass with an extremely lowdispersion index, has less of a tendency to separate (defract) a ray of light into a rainbow of colors. This characteristic allows the lens designer to effectively compensate for chromatic aberration at the center of the field (on axis), a particular problem at long focal lengths (the telephoto end of the zoom range), and for lateral chromatic aberration (towards the edges of the field) that often occurs at short focal lengths (the wide-angle end of the zoom range.)
Internal Focusing (IF) System
Internal focusing (IF) provides numerous practical benefits to photographers including a non-rotating front filter ring that facilitates the positioning of polarizing and graduated filters, and more predictable handling because the lens length does not change during focusing. Even more important, Tamron’s Internal Focusing (IF) system provides a much closer minimum focusing distance (MFD) throughout its entire focusing range. In addition, IF improves optical performance by minimizing illumination loss at the corners of the image field, and helps to suppress other aberrations that become more troublesome at different focusing positions.
Full Time Manual Focus makes fine tuning easy
All Tamron lenses have high autofocus precision and are designed to capture subjects easily in almost any situation, yet sometimes a photographer wants to fine tune and make adjustments on the fly. The integration of full time manual focus offers just that: instead of fumbling with switches, photographers can switch from autofocus to manual focus by simply adjusting the focus ring. This feature helps the lens produce impressive results even in telephoto situations where the depth of field is narrow.

These outstanding filters offer revolutionary performance in light transmission and color balance. 12 layers of Super Multicoating are applied to the surfaces of the UV(0) models, which produces an average transmission of 99.7%! Coupled with maximum surface precision,
this allows increased resistance to flare and stunning images can be recorded at wide apertures without compromising the performance of your lenses. Their slim profile of just 5mm avoids any vignetting problems and makes them ideal for use with wide angle lenses. HOYA Super HMC filters will appeal to the most demanding of photographers who require the ultimate in performance.
