    I get to get a new lens in the next couple weeks. My choices are
    85mm 1.8 nikon or the 90mm tamron macro. I just got a cheap studio flash set up from ebay and want a portrait lens for it. I have been wanting the tamron for a couple years now ( i sure do love me some macro). Is the 90mm tamron good for portrait work?

    well, I don't have one, but it's also known as the portrait macro, so, I'm going to guess the answer
