  • Summary: The lens is a good Canon lens and I like the micro quality, It's that the item took a bit of time to receive.

Macro

dc, Canon
1 May 2014
  • Conclusion: Of course, macro is always with tripod or also with some focus adjuster. When this is heald steadily, images come up amazing. Again, you should balance depth of field with speed according to what the light allows!
  • Pros: Superior build quality, Super-sharp images

Fantastic lens

Joe H., Amazon

  • Summary: This is a great lens. I've used it to capture pollen in tiny wildflowers! I would, however, recommend also getting a macro flash of some sort - f32 really limits your light. If you don't have a flash you either need a still subject and a tripod, or full sunlight.

Excellent lens but sensitive!

  • Summary: I had a choice of this lens or the new Canon 100mm IS macro. Most people choose the 100mm because it is smaller and has IS. I have to admit that this thing is a bear to use without a tripod because, at 180mm, you have to have incredibly steady hands...which I don't! Another reason people choose the 100mm is because the bulk of Canon shooters out there have crop factor cameras.

amazing - like nothing else out there

The Fog, Amazon
5 May 2013
  • Summary: I agree with the glowing reviews of the actual lens - it is amazing here's my thoughts on the other stuff it came with -- comes new with a hood as well as a very nice $50+ zippered soft case and tripod mount -- **the hood is a reversible, twist-on bayonet style similar to other OEM Canon L hoods and is independent of the 72mm filter ring - it is more of a cone-style flat hood, NOT a petal-style hood like the 70-210mm has **the LZ1324 case stands out as a high cost, high...

Can't get a much better picture

Michael Bilodeau, Amazon
11 April 2013
  • Summary: This lens is super crisp and sharp for macro, bought this thing used from KEH, was a little reluctant about buying some used camera equipment at first but I got to think about it, digital camera equipment isn't cheap so I'm pretty sure that whoever owned this thing before probably took good care of it, the thing was probably in better shape that the rating that KEH was giving it, it came with the original box and case for it and hood, was in excellent shape and very...

excellent

trote, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this as my first macro lens. I love it. I was using a 250mm with extension and a Canon 500D filter to get close. This makes everything faster and easier and I can shoot from a distance.

Amazing lens

Joseph E, Amazon
17 March 2013
  • Summary: I have taken some amazing photos using this lens. Since it is 180mm you don't need to be as close to the subject, which helps greatly with bugs. The only downside to the len is that it is extremely heavy.

Brilliant and sharp Macro Lens Canon 180mm f3.5

viechbader, Ebay
7 March 2013
  • Summary: Wonderful lens, sharp, brilliant! Good feeling in your hands, fast autofocus, although I prefer manual focussing for extreme closeups! Canon quality and in my opinion much better than Sigma 180mm!

Fantastic lens with outstanding image quality

Dutton Peabody, Editor "C D Mann", Amazon
12 January 2013
  • Summary: I purchased this lens from my local dealer and am blown away with the IQ it produces. I am using it both as a macro and also as an outdoor portrait lens. The sharpness, saturation, color accuracy and contrast are matched only by the best optics I've ever seen. For the money, this lens is a bargain. Take a look at what other top notch glass costs.
