TAMRON 90MM MACRO LENS: REBIRTH OF A CLASSIC WITH A LEGACY OF SUPERIOR OPTICAL PERFORMANCE

Enhanced VC functionality and advanced features

February 22, 2016, Commack, New York – Tamron, a leading manufacturer of optics for diverse applications, announces the launch of the SP 90mm F/2.8 Di VC USD 1:1 MACRO (Model F017). The new 90mm macro has been enhanced with advanced features and builds upon a legacy of superior optical performance. XY-Shift compensation has been newly added to reinforce VC functionality, further improving image stabilization from infinity to macro. Advancements in USD control software have also increased AF focusing speed, and optimally fine-tuned for various framing conditions. In addition, a high standard of Moisture-Proof and Dust-Resistant Construction has been added to prevent intrusion of dust or moisture, and a highly durable Fluorine Coating has been applied to the top element surface to prevent condensation and repel smudge-causing substances.  The lens will be on sale in the U.S. starting in March 2016 in Canon and Nikon mounts (the Sony mount to be launched at a later date). The on-sale date in the USA is February 25, 2016 at an approximate price of $649.

PRODUCT HIGHLIGHTS

1.  Built upon the outstanding optical performance of the legendary Tamron 90mm Macro

Inheriting the optical design of the previous 90mm Macro lens (Model F004), the new Model F017 delivers the same excellent resolving power and remarkably soft background blur effects (bokeh). The advanced construction includes one LD (Low Dispersion) specialized glass element that maximally limits the dispersion properties of light and two XLD (eXtra Low Dispersion) glass elements that correct dispersion properties to an even greater extent. The special elements optimally compensate for on-axis and lateral chromatic aberrations from macro shooting range to infinity. Furthermore, the design ensures the best imaging performance at any range by adopting the Floating System that shifts the location of a group of elements to the best possible position as the focusing group travels relative to shooting distances. From 1:1, life-size close-ups to the most distant horizon, this new 90mm Macro lens achieves outstanding image quality.

New Canon Tilt-Shift Lenses Rumored For Photokina 2014

Canon Rumors got word that Canon may announce new tilt-shift lenses for Photokina 2014.

Both the Canon TS-E 90mm f/2.8 and TS-E 45mm f/2.8 are murmured to get replaced. And the possibility of a third tilt-shift lens (no hints here) is also in the air. The 90mm and 45mm are pretty old lenses, a replacement is not implausible. The lenses should be announced for Photokina 2014.

Some more speculation are going on about a Canon macro tilt-shift lens.

A rumor about new “L” grade Canon tilt-shift lenses surfaced. It has word that there will be an “L” lens to replace the TS-E 45mm f/2.8. There is more: the TS-E 90mm f/2.8 will be replaced with a TS-E 135mm f/2.8L. Moreover, it appears that Canon is designing a new tilt-shift mechanism for this kind of lenses. It does not appear that the TS-E 17mm f/4L and TS-E 24mm f/3.5L II will be replaced.

More Canon EOS 70D Dual Pixel Auto-Focus Test Videos

The real technological highlight and the biggest innovation of the Canon EOS 70D is the Dual Pixel CMOS auto-focus. That’s not to say the EOS 70D falls short as a stills DSLR, but the new AF is a real game changer. We have seen many test videos, but the performance is so amazing that I think a few more won’t bother you, especially if you are into videography and want to learn more about the 70D’s AF.

The video above (by YouTube user canonplex, thanks to the reader who sent the link) shows a different view on the 70D’s AF. The two videos below [via dicahub] were taken while driving at 100 km/h (approx 60 mph) and pointing the AF to the road sign. Note that the AF area is larger as the sign (while far away from the sign) and until the road sign comes close it was not sure if the AF was focusing on the right spot – indeed, it did, and it did whit great precision. The video were taken using a production model of the EOS 70D and a Tamron 90mm f/2.8 Macro 1:1 VC lens, M mode video and f/2.8 were set. The tracking of the Dual Pixel CMOS AF is amazing!
