Sony 100mm f/2.8 Macro SAL-100M28 review by gabrielvines

Summary: I haven't had this lense quite long but it's nicely constructed, has tons of possibility and quite sharp. I have used it more for portraits up to now and they can be remarkable. I've done a little macro. I have purchased a monopod and got tired of using a complete tripod on macro's.
Summary: This is my very first Macro lens and I am currently trying to be familiar with it. But I could tell that this lens is very sharp and fascinating piece if enjoyment. The seller is committed to the customers' satisfaction and friendly. The package arrived two weeks earlier than expected delivery date.
Excellent macro lens for Sony Alpha bodies either FF or APS-C - brilliantly sharp, but somewhat noisy motor

Summary: This is an exceptionally sharp lens, and gives a very nice 100 mm on FF or 150 mm perspective on an APS-C sensor body like the Sony A 77/77II. In terms of image quality it's mostly a five star lens, particularly if you stop down just a little bit to F4, but I'm giving it four stars because of its...
Excerpt: It is the only lens you will need to cover all your nside needs.It is compact, fast and silent, so you can take it with you in a small pounch, no need to carry other lens.You may use it in automatic mode for great portrait and manual for special effect with shades and shadows.
Summary: I've been using this on my Sony a700 and now my a900 since this lens came out. It took me from semi-pro to pro level and selling my macros on a regular basis. The only reason it's not 5-star is that it's a bit slow to focus. It takes a bit to learn the trick here.
Summary: I recently upgraded to the Sony 100mm f/2.8 macro from the Sony 30mm f/2.8 macro lens. What can I say? I love it! I use this lens coupled with my Sony A77 and the results have yet to disappoint. I will say- manual focus (for me) works a lot better than relying on the auto focus.
