Photozone.de har anmeldt Tamron AF 60mm f/2 Di II LD [IF] SP Macro, et objektiv der ikke kun kan bruges til makro, men grundet brændvidden på 60mm og blænde f/2.0 også er ganske velegnet til portrætfotografering.

In a time before digital SLRs were invented, medium tele macro lenses in the range of 90 to 105 mm often had to cover two usage scenarios: macro shots, of course, but since most of these lenses were also rather fast in terms of aperture they also eliminated the need for a dedicated portrait lens for many.
In the digital era with APS-C sensors being used by the majority of DSLR owners, 60 mm lenses now cover the needs of macro shooters looking for medium tele options. But allthough the fast aperture of usually f/2.8 has remained, the reduced image size of crop sensors leads to increased depth of field over comparable full frame options, making these lenses less attractive for portrait shots or any other usage, where subject separation is one of the primary targets.
Tamron is the first to address this issue by offering a 60mm macro lens that features a maximum aperture of f/2.
