Macro / Close-Up With a Tamron AF 28-75mm F/2.8

The Tamron AF 28-75mm F/4 can also be use to get some pretty amazing close-up, it is not a true macro lens since it won’t give you a 1:1 magnification. According to it’s specs it’s magnification ratio is 1:3.9 at 75mm, and minimum focus distance is 0.33m or 13″ (entire zoom range). The sample photo above was taken at around or close to 13″ and was shot in aperture priority at F/4. I was really surprised and happy when I saw the sample close-up shots in front of a monitor. Below are the sample photos all shot at 75mm at different apertures from F/2.8 to F/11.

All test was shot in Raw and exported to jpg using Lightroom, no adjustments where done. Please click on each photos to zoom.
