Verdict

The Tamron AF 60mm f/2.0 SP Di II is a welcome addition to the range of 60mm macro lenses. It shows very high sharpness and pleasing bokeh, with its large aperture allows for nice subject separation and therefor qualifies for many more usages than just macro shots. CAs are a little on the high side, as is vignetting wide open, but that's the price one usually needs to pay for speed. The lens itself seems solid and is rather compact and light weight.

There's not much to criticise about this lens. Many would certainly have preferred a less noisy AF drive as it is available from the competition, but that's about it.

So, in summary, a very nice lens for an affordable price and certainly recommended to anyone considering a macro lens with this focal length.
