Any interest in getting some Tamron gear up here?

I don't have a ton to add other than that! Tamron's been making some bomb ass lenses lately, from their new 70-200 2.8 G2, their 150-600 G2, their upcoming 100-400mm, which so far looks amazing, to their 24-70 and their APS-C travel superszoom 18-400. Tamron's really been knocking it out of the park, and i'd love to see some Tamron love here! It seems like it's almost all Sigma and first party stuff!

I just bought the current version Tamron 90mm this year. It was actually a replacement for a 1990s vintage Tamron 90mm SP AF. Been very happy with the new lens, 90mm has been my preferred lens for photographing my watches.
It would be a worthy drop, even though I would not participate for obvious reasons.

I'd love to get the Tamron macro lens here, I've been seriously eying the 90mm! How is it for portraiture?

I am afraid the only portraits I have taken with it this past year have been of watches! The 1990's Tamron SP AF I used prior to this did take some good portraits, but it was terribly slow to focus in use. A subject could get bored and walk away in the time it would lock focus sometimes. Definitely no issues with that in the modern lens. I have not even really tried out the image stabilization handheld yet. I did put it to use during the solar eclipse back in August on a spare D80 body where I shot a time-lapse series with it.
Here is some watch shots I took with the Tamron 90mm "017" model. I used a Nikon D7000 body with all of these.

There is an extension tube involved on that last photo of the Junghans.
