Excellent macro lens for Sony Alpha bodies either FF or APS-C - brilliantly sharp, but somewhat noisy motor

D. F. Watt "dfwatt", Amazon
3 weeks ago
  • 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 hunting and noisy motor (see cons). Call me picky or just spoiled by the newer lenses, like Sony's terrific 16-50 2.8.

A steady workhorse

Cat F. "I read it as if I wrote it.", Amazon

  • 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. It's a bit noisy as it focuses, too. Many a butterfly has startled from the noise. It locks down at a short stop. 1:1 is clear and colors are bright. There are no vignettes.

The 100mm Magic Lens

MC, Amazon
28 March 2014
  • 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. Although the AF is relatively silent, it seems pretty slow and "focus hunts" a bit more than I'd like.

This macro lens with the a7R is awesome!

TheCreativeAI, Sony
21 January 2014
  • 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. I recommend manual focus in steps if you have the right situation. Close it down to F/32 for finely focused closeups or open it wide to F/2.8 for portraits with creamy bokeh.

  • Summary: If you want to see the world you cant see with regular lenses, then this lens is for you! I love taking pictures of bugs and flowers in macro. When your friends see it they are amazed. I even got a picture of a mosquito's shadow with this thing.
