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".
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.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction

Pros: Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight

Excerpt: I've only used the product for a couple of weeks, but first results meet/exceed my expectations. My interest is in close up shots of flowers and insects. I've learned: (1) the lens does a far better job than my 17-55mm f2.8 lens (as well it should), (2) DOF is very shallow, (3) and hand-held shots...
Excerpt: Paired with my Canon 7D, this lens captures outstanding detail and its depth-of-field control makes it a true artist's tool. Even wide open, the images are crisp. Using it as a prime lens for video also means precise image control.
Pros: Crisp Focus, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh
Excerpt: Purchased this lens for macro work. I already have the kit 135mm canon and Tamika 11-16mm wide angle lens for my Canon 70D. This lens looks like the perfect lens to keep on the camera unless you need a wide angle or zoom. Ive used it so far for portraits and closeups on flowers.
Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Rugged
