I love my copy but...

G., B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: This lens is 5 stars for sharpness, quality, and versatility. My only complain is that my copy had focusing issues right from the start. Luckily Canon, is great at getting it fixed ASAP! The warranty is great with Canon.

Manual focus disappoints

Photo Engineer, B&H Photo
9 May 2013
  • Excerpt: Optical properties of this lens are excellent for macro and portrait work. Autofocus is good. However, the lens disappoints when focusing manually. The focusing threads are crude making it very difficult to find a sharp focus for macro shots (where manual focus is needed).

Good glass/lousy manual focus

Photo Engineer, B&H Photo
28 April 2013
  • Excerpt: This is a nice piece of glass , but I am terribly disappointed in the manual focus. It is a rough adjustment, where what is needed is a fine adjustment. Also it is easily disturbed - throwing the image out of focus with the smallest accidental touch of the focus ring.

Plastic, plastic, plastic!

  • Excerpt: Having owned many Canon lenses (25+) over the past 30 years, this lens is by far the one that uses the lowest grade of materials at this price. The plastic is so thin that if you pinch the focus ring while manual focusing, it sticks! Even the lens barrel flexes! Very cheesy!
  • Cons: Semi-sharp images, Poor build quality, overpriced!

Not worth it

Geno, B&H Photo
3 May 2012
  • Excerpt: While technically a great lens, its hard to get things in focus and the IS really has no effect in the macro world. Just save your money and go with the 180MM macro. Longer working distance and also takes great portraits.
