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.
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!
Summary: I picked up this lens because I shoot a ton of macro work all year round and have been doing so with the 50mm version for over 4 years the only problem i was running into was how close i had to get to my subjects (I.E bugs, insects, ect.) jumping to this 105mm had made it much easier to get the shot by not having to get as close and the silent focus is a big plus too I also happen to run a commercial studio and I use this lens for portrait work it has stunning details.
Summary: I found this lens to be very quick, accurate and nearly silent in focusing. The color quality was excellent with no fringing or color distortion. The stabilization was very accurate and the image sharp and stable even though there has been conditions where the camera was not able to stay steady. I have had absolutely no problems with this lens. I can recommend this lens to anyone looking for a lens in this range wholeheartedly.
Summary: I am becoming annoyed with this form Amazon is sending me, soliciting comments. I will write a review after I have used this lens for a year or more. It is nice out of the box, but the proof of the pudding...and all that, you know?
