Summary: My earlier review reflected frustration at receiving a lens that didn't fit my camera. The mistake was mine, so I'm revising my review. Although I still think the heading for this item is misleading -- the product is "Canon-compatible," but it is not a "Canon" product -- this is nevertheless a very honorable dealer, who hastened to make up for my errors and find a way to meet my expectations.
Excerpt: I was given this lens as a Christmas gift and I absolutely love it. Every product I have purchased from B&H has been off the highest quality, and this lens is no different. This lens allows the photographer to have complete control over which details to capture and provides such a smooth interface for macro shooting. Details in my photos are crisp and the color captured in my photos is unbelievable. So far I have no complaints.
Excerpt: I bought this lens for product photography because of its sharpness (see the DxO website for comparisons). For the money it is a very sharp lens. The fixed focal length requires a little more setup, but is a good length for studio items up to about 18". Being a EF-S lens, it is also small, but then it won't work with full frame cameras. Works well with the D70.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Lightweight, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I use this lens when I do close up nature photography and it is just awesome. The pictures come out exactly like I picture them to be from a macro. The awesome part about this lens is that its not just a macro photography lens but can also be used as a portrait lens, so it is very versatile. It is quite a bit heavier than I had anticipated but that doesn't deter from how awesome it shoots. If you want a fairly low budget macro option for your Canon this lens is for you.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I used the EF-S 60mm Macro to take pictures of flowers at Longwood Gardens in Pennsylvania. The lens worked very well and the pictures were sharp. I was using the camera hand held. I tried several different f stop settings and noticed some of the larger ones such as f2.8 to 3.5 seemed to give better results.
Pros: Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight
Excerpt: Before purchasing this lens I scoured the reviews on many other Macro lenses here at BH. Narrowing it down to the Canon 60mm, 100mm, and 180mm. I really wanted to get sharp nature/butterfly photos that would reveal details that our eyes cannot see. I personally let my camera determine the exposure, Sorry!, and use the auto-focus. I also love to zoom to get my ideal shot. So since all the lenses are of high quality, I decided to get the 60mm.
