  • Conclusion: Despite its obvious quality, this lens does seem to be a little long in the tooth. More suited to specialised macro duties on a tripod than as a general purpose macro lens, it prove extremely hard to hand hold and get decent results. If you are thinking that the long focal length will be ideal for chasing bugs and butterflies, you will need to go crashing through the undergrowth with a tripod in tow! Consider a 70-200mm VR and extension ring instead.
  • Pros: Exceptional build quality, Good tripod collar (needed), Good CA/distortion control
  • Cons: Geriatric autofocus, Dated switching, Narrow depth-of-field
