Yes, the take home message is that the Tamron 90mm Macro is a damn sharp lens.

Why rely on SOOC shots?
Do some post processing and see if the sharpness that you think you should be getting shines through.

9x out of 10 when I download a shot and look at it for the first time I think I missed focus. Lo and behold and applying the right amount of sharpening the picture turns into a sharp gem.

Its alright, center sharpness is a given on an L lens. If you really want to put it through its paces, test the corners and borders, then test the CA when backlit.


Photography is not defined by what gear you own.

Use a stone or another heavy objekct crush it into the frontpart of the lens... Then it will be dangerous sharp....

Just kidding. The lens is sharp. But test it out on a longer distance, thats where you see its beauty the best.
