    I've got this lens for quite some time but I have'nt use it very much. This is the old manual focus version, and I got it very cheap, for about USD 75.

    This spring I decided to try it a little more, I was pleasantly surprised with the result. Here are some of the pictures, processed with my trial Capture NX:

    Images like those are why the Tamron 90's are legends. Nice images.

  4. Seems that even the older version of this lens is a winner!

    Great pics.

    Cheers

  6. You have a great copy of the Tamron and are putting it to very good use. I really like the droplets. Good work!!

    Thank you all for your comments. I think this is my best bargain lens in my collection :D.

    Manual focussing is a lot easier with D200 compare to my D100, but it's still quite challenging. I'm now waiting for my Katzeye order and I hope it will improve my keeper ratio :D.
