Summary: Arguably in the top 3 sharpest lenses for the alpha mount. There's really nothing I don't love about it. The bokeh, the sharpness, overall IQ, they are all stellar. Sony really hit the mark with this one.
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.
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 have used this 100 mm macro lens for years on film cameras, Sony alpha 100, Nex 5, and, now on the Sony a7R. It must be attached with the A to E-mount adapter and will autofocus through the mirror; however, there is such a stack of glass that this lens does better on the level in AF mode.
Summary: This is my 5th Sony lens purchase. I always shop less expensive brands like Sigma but inevitably come back to Sony. If nothing else, I expect Sony's a65 firmware to correct many minor lens flaws.
