GOOD MACRO LENS
29 July 2014
Excerpt: I AM USING THIS MACRO LENS ON A SONY NEX 7 CAMERA WITH A METABONES ADAPTER FOR MACRO AND PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHY. I FIND THE LENS TO BE STURDY AND WELL BUILT. BOTH PORTRAIT AND MACRO PHOTOS CAME OUT IN VERY SHARP FOCUS. THE SHALLOW DEPTH OF FIELD FOR MACRO CAN GET VERY SENSITIVE. THE LENS AUTO FOCUS DOES NOT WORK WELL WITH THE NEX 7. THE MANUAL FOCUS WITH SONY'S PEAKING COLOR FUNCTION HELPS TO MAKING FOCUSING SPOT ON. THE BOKEH IS VERY GOOD. I AM VERY HAPPY WITH THIS LENS.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I have only been using this as a portrait lens so far, but backgrounds have been soft and creamy and focus has been sharp. I'm used to having IS in a lens, so I'll have to get used to this, but I didn't feel spending so much more for the IS version was worth it. For macro work, of course a tripod will be necessary.
Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh
Excerpt: I've really been enjoying this lens. I wish I'd splurged on the IS lens, because it's hard to keep steady in certain positions. But a monopod really helps. On a tripod, the images are exceptionally sharp and colorful.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh
Excerpt: All the reviews raved about this lens - and it didn't disappoint. Great, affordable macro lens - super sharp. If you don't want to spend a fortune on the L series lens, this is the one to get.
Excerpt: I had read a lot of positive reviews about this lens and they were right. Works really nice with my Canon 7D. I especially liked it for shooting fast paced events and animals. The only thing I didn't like about this lens was it didn't work well in low light. I had read some other reviews that stated that as well, so I wasn't surprised when I experienced the same thing.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I recently moved from APS-C (EOS 50D) to full frame (EOS 6D). So I needed a replacement for my EF-S 2.8/60 Macro. I did some research and finally decided to get the 2.8/100 Macro.I also considered the Canon 2.8/100 IS and the Sigma 2.8/105 OS HSM. But the use of IS is somewhat questionable in macro photography.
Pros: Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Rugged, Strong Construction
