Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I am very happy with this lens. I am a portrait photography student and I use it for children and newborns. The macro is incredible. However the focus is slower than my other prime lenses, but that is not a deal breaker for me. It also has wonderful bokeh.
Excerpt: I received my 105mm micro and find it tack sharp excellent for macro and portraits. I was looking for a versatile lens to do both. The autofocus is not completely silent and it does hunt a bit for macro work. The portrait focusing is sharp and fast.
Excerpt: I have an old 55mm macro and wanted a 200MM macro but it was too old for me to invest. I settled on the 105 macro and this lens is much much better than I expected and much sharper than my old 55mm macro. Used as both a macro and as a medium telephone the images are sharp and pop.
Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Sharp
