The Tamron 180mm is not a new lens, it is recognized as one
of the best third-party macro lens in terms of optical quality. This lens when
used correctly is able to produce sharp images, I am not going to talk about
how good the lens is, you may easily find reviews and sample images on the
internet. Instead, I am going to show you the half-cut mockup of this lens
which was showcased during KLPF 2007.
