The Tamron SP AF60mm F/2.0 Di II LD (IF) 1:1 Macro (model G005) is the first medium telephoto macro lens designed for APS-C size DSLR cameras that features a fast maximum aperture of F/2.0-one stop faster than the F/2.8 maximum aperture found on conventional macro lenses in the same class. The SP AF60mm F/2.0 covers an equivalent angle of view of 93mm when converted to the 35mm format. With is fast F/2.0 maximum aperture, the new macro delivers dramatically attractive blurred background effects. And the addition of Internal Focusing (IF) and Full Time Manual Focus Control Mechanism to its list of highlight features makes this lightweight and compact 1:1 macro lens incredibly easy to use.

Comments about Tamron SP AF60mm F2 Di II LD (IF) 1:1 Macro Lens for Canon EOS:
My first copy had a front focus problem, sent it back to Buydig and the replacement is now perfect. [...] I would say this lens is great for low light, but since it doesn't have the IS, it gets tough sometimes. But overall, it's not a problem since I use external flash a lot.This lens is super sharp at f/4.0!! Amazing Sharp! I have the Canon 50mm f1.8 and this lens beats the canon's sharpness.If you are looking for a macro lens, but also wants a portrait, I think this lens is great.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Super lens! Takes great pictures. The only draw back I found is the auto focus is rather slow. This is my first experience using a Macro lens so maybe they all are slow using auto focus.

I love MACRO photography. This lens is a perfect fit for my Canon 7D. With a little practice my shots have become detailed and clear. The lens is small and easy to change out. It is sturdy and seems tough enough to endure most outdoor situations. The 1:1 close ups are so much fun and easy to get with this lens. Some reviews say it easily equals Canons similar model (and I am a big Canon fan but in this case the quality is the same or better and there are extra $$ in my pocket). The F/2.0 allows for detailed main subjects with pleasantly blurred backgrounds. You can then turn the lens on your family and get some nice portraits too. I LIKE IT !!!!!
