Great buy for the money

  • Excerpt: I was trying to decide between this and the L lens and after reading several reviews on different forums I decided to try this first. I find that it has good stability, I get little unwanted blur and I saved a ton of money!

Nice but heavy!

  • Excerpt: I bought this lens a while ago and now I'm thinking whether I should have bought the 60mm macro instead. I find the added weight to be an issue as I'm not a fan of carrying a tripod around. Otherwise an excellent lens if the extra weight is not an issue.

  • Excerpt: Very easy to use, but takes a bit getting used to a lens without zoom. I initially bought it for food photography as is has great macro capabilities, but I think I needed a lens slightly more zoomed out as I cannot get the whole dish in one shot, however details of ingredients are fantastic.

  • Summary: It takes great detail shots but takes a lot of practice and patience to use it successfully. Of all my lenses, I use it the least because it's cumbersome/heavy, 100mm (which is difficult to use in a lot of settings), and really only has a small window of applications for my purposes.

  • Summary: Oh how I wish I could write as glowing reviews as everyone else. Yes, it is sharp. I notice using macro it is sharp but up to around F16, strangely, as the aperture goes smaller it gets less sharp. As in if I shoot at F22 it is very soft.
  • Pros: Sharp middle to wide open., Pretty solid build.
  • Cons: Very soft when aperture is closed down. F22 shots not sharp at all., Very dark, about 1 1/2 stops darker than other Canon lenses.
