    I just ordered my tamron 90mm not too long ago.
    But at the moment I don't have a reliable flash yet.
    So I'd like to see macro pictures without any flash and being handheld please.

    Thank you :smile:

    My last two posts were handheld without flash (using Nikon 105mm).

    Took this one yesterday with a Tamron 90mm, the older type that's only 1:2.
    This is nearly 100% crop, and the really shallow DOF is a result of the hand held flashless approach... (f/3.5 to get fast enough shutter) :)

    You can use the on board flash to get the shutter speed up for hand holding. It works better if you diffuse the flash as else the lens casts a shadow on the bottom of the pic at 1:1. This is a diffuser I made from a plastic milk bottle and use on my Tamron 90mm macro.

    And the result at 1:1
