Excerpt: I really don't have anything bad to say other than it's a very heavy lens, so my wrist gets tired quickly. Other than that, this is a perfect lens. Image quality is outstanding - no fringing or warping, and everything is crystal clear. If I could have justified the extra cost I'd have gotten the IS version because image stabilization would be very nice for handheld shots.
Excerpt: Practicing but I'm loving this lens. I have taking images of flowers, inside and out, and different objects up close. I have also taken shots of my cat from a distant and love the way they came out. I have used the macro setting or manual setting on my Canon 60D for close ups but this lens is so much sharper on the details. Very happy with purchase. A little heavy but I use a tripod.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Strong Construction
Excerpt: This lens is truly amazing! One thing to note for beginners in Macro Photography is that is almost impossible to autofocus when that close to an object, you'll want to manual focus. However, if you are shooting from a decent distance (as a standard 100mm) then the autofocus works fine and the quality is quite good. Also I would suggest shooting in burst mode to maximize the likelihood of a good shot, well that or use a macro/lens flash.
Pros: Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
Excerpt: Never used a macro lens much in the past..so I was not aware of the "new world" it's opened up for me. I am a full time director of photography for a number of public television programs. We do not produce any "nature" programming, so I've never needed to use any macro imaging. Bought this lens for it's use as a high-quality medium telephoto, and am absolutely blown away by what it will do in its macro role, as well as serving as a telephoto.
Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh
Excerpt: I bought this for dental photography, but I also love it for taking macro photos of basically anything! Photos look great. Would recommend to anybody in the dental or medical profession for sure.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I work as a product and fashion photographer during the week and wedding photographer during the weekend. I've been using the same lens at work to take detail shots of women's accessories. I bought the same lens for my wedding business for detail shots of the ring, shoes and decors. You will really see the difference between a true macro lens compared to a regular lens that has "macro capability". I would highly recommend this to serious photographers.
