Summary: Tested Camera Body: Sony DSLR-A900 Oh my gosh, where to start. This is one of the best lenses I've ever had the joy of handling. PRO: -Optical stabilizer works great! (Mode 1 is for horizontal or vertical shake, for still subjects. Mode 2 is vertical-only, for panning shots of moving subjects.) -105mm is wonderful for portraits. -f2.8 is nice and fast, makes nice defocused backgrounds. -HSM Autofocus is quick when limited appropriately.
Combined with ring flash on Canon 5d3, allows for spectacular nature shots

Summary: Used the lens in the deep jungle in Corcovado National Park and pushed it -- focusing on a snake curled tightly around a bush at night in the rain my only complaint was the focus was on the slow side. The concomitant pictures however were fantastic. Very nice image quality, nice bokeh, good color.
Summary: This is a fantastic lens. A little heavy as one would expect with a 105mm macro lens but takes quality pictures. f2.8 helps a lot specially in low light and one can use focus stacking effectively to get amazing sharp pictures. Would recommend for anyone who wants to get into macro photography and starts learning the craft.
Excerpt: I did considerable research on the best macro lens to suit my needs & I am NOT disappointed in my choice! To me, the only differences in this lens & the Nikon version are the weight and price!
