Pros: Price ( new I think now difficult to find, you can find a good used with Canon attachment at a reasonable price ), weight, does not have the MF of an IRIX Dragonfly but good ergonomics despite the age of the project.

Cons: I am not yet able to give a complete evaluation because I have recently withdrawn the optics and carried out the first tests in non-ideal light conditions.

Opinion: Given this opinion for the particularity of the whole (lens, adapter, camera body) I hope in the coming weeks to be able to leave photos. I did an outdoor test with clouds affecting lights and ISO values. I can say that everything works and give an acceptable to the quality of the shots for the problem of the lights that I mentioned before. The idea is to adapt to the macro in itinere, even through the crop at 26 megapixels, with good results and without the pretense you fully endure the resolution of sony. The hardware set up: (Tamron SP 180mm f/3.5 Di LD Macro "Canon" + Sigma MC 11 Firmware Ver. 1.37 + Sony a7RIV). Why did I buy the Tamron 180 and not the Sigma 105 DG DN Art or rather the Sony FE 90, why I have not adapted a Canon 180 ? The underlying reason is the same that pushes you to photograph, the next light, the next subject, the curiosity to experiment. The focal "180" for the working distance and the possibility of photographing elusive insects, I do not know lenses of the same range with Sony E mount, I discarded the Canon 180 for the price and uncertainty about compatibility. In assembling the set you feel the flow of contacts, less fluid than the assembly of an original bayonet, everything happens without damage if you use normal caution. The Sony through the Sigma MC11 recognizes the Tamron and correctly reports the Exif with apertures, focal, focal crop, ISO, etc.etc. Corrected the aperture priority check. No blockages that force you to remove the battery. It is a Macro lens in this case "adapted" to be used in MF. I also shot in Single AF (Flexible Spot) - Very slow, often does not hook, you have to approach with the MF and then switch back to AF. Other modes / AFC, very slow / not usable.

Pros: Ergonomics, sharpness even at TA, blurry, overall image quality

Cons: Slow AF

Opinion: I have been doing this for almost 8 years: I have used it for many years on various Canon machines and I continue to use it now on a Sony system with adapter. What surprises me is the incredible resolution of this lens on the 42Mpx sensor of the A7R II, as opposed to the DXO test. I did not find this feature on any other optics I've had. The bokeh is very soft and has nothing to envy to much more expensive optics. I find the ergonomics excellent, and the focus ring has a very large, knurled handle that allows extremely precise focus adjustments.

Pros: Price, sharpness, mafia ring

Cons: Af slow

Opinion: I have used a number of macro optics and I can say that this lens has an unimportant price ratio. Rn I've been using it for almost two years now. Two intense macro seasons on stand, used in many light conditions. Medium-to-high aperture sharpness, as well as any macro optics. What impressed me on this lens is the quality of the mafia ring, big and well frustrated ..... for a quick and accurate maf. It is a specific optic and is not recommended for other areas by the AF engine Definitely slow.rn As far as I'm concerned, two years of great satisfactions ... a purchase that I re-opened my eyes.rnrn

Pros: sharpness, value for money, working distance, separation from the background

Cons: af slow, not weather sealed

Opinion: I use it for about a year (before I had the Canon 180 Macro L) and I'm very satisfied ... the image quality has nothing to envy to the Canon; f / 5.6 on it is crystal clear, and the most used in the macro diaphragms (f / 8, f / 11) is perfect. The long focal length allows you to have a great working distance and good bokeh; despite being a 180mm it is fairly light and compact (compared to the equivalent of other brands). Other advantages of this objective are the tripod ring, which allows you to quickly switch from horizontal to vertical shots, and the possibility of having the aperture ring: the Nikon version is equipped as the dial to adjust 'manually' the diaphragm, this feature it is very important for those who use it with adapters because it allows to use adapters of electronic lacking and without compatibility problems. I use it on Sony (version Nikon + adapter) and it works perfectly, while the Canon (which required a class tatore more sophisticated) had frequent problems. The only 'defects' I can mention are the lack of weather sealing and slow AF, but in macro photography is not important, since it always works in manual focus. In my opinion it is currently the best macro lens you can buy, if you take into account del'ottimo quality / price ratio!

Pros: Excellent clarity, good focus, construction and good materials, smooth manual focus ring, possibility 'filter rotation even with lens hood, great price.

Cons: Lack autofocus limiter

Opinion: Good buy !!!!! For macro enthusiasts definitely recommended given the quality 'general and the great price !!! Mounted on aps-c provides a good working distance even by those most' difficult parts ... and all in all not so heavy !!! so for those looking for a macro lens that Tamron 180mm and 'must-evaluate and buy ..... !!!!
