From the Di designation we can say the Tamron lenses are designed for cameras with full-frame image sensors.
Tamron SP 90mm f/2.8 Di Macro VC USD lens comes with an Ultrasonic Silent Drive that provides quick, silent focusing. With the VC designation we see that it will have built-in optical image stabilization technology. As usual Sony models won’t have this technology.
