Tamron 60mm f/2.0 SP Di-II AF Macro
The Nikon version of this lens is reported to underexpose on the higher end Nikon bodies. Lower end bodies such as the D3100 and D5100 are not affected, nor are the Canon or Sony versions. The problem was corrected by Tamron in early 2011, but old stock may remain in shops.
