Most of you know I use the Tamron brand macro lenses, and if you view my images I think you will see that these lenses do a great job, and they are reasonably priced.
Why I say it is a good time to buy is that Tamron is offering rebates on all their macro lenses.
I got pricing for these lenses from Gary at Hunt’s Photo, which is New England’s largest photo retailer. Here are the prices and the rebates per lens.
Tamron 60 macro $519 before $100 mail in rebate.
Tamron 90 macro $459 before $50 mail in rebate.
Tamron 180 macro $689 before $50 mail in rebate.
If you would like to order one of these lenses you can contact Gary Farber of Hunt’s Photo direct at (781) 462-2332 or email him at firstname.lastname@example.org
Mention my name when you contact Gary and you will get free shipping .
So for you new to macro photographers looking to buy your first macro lens, I would suggest the Tamron 90mm macro, and right now you can get that lens for $409 after the rebate is applied and the free shipping. Good Deal!
