Good Macro Lens

24 May 2014
  • Excerpt: Purchased this to use as a macro lens. Performs well. Quick, accurate focus. Good in low light. Focal length is a little short, making 1: 1 difficult at times.
  • Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight
  • Cons: Short Focal Length

Great Macro learning lens

  • Excerpt: The pictures are sharp once you get the hang of the back and forth focusing , better to use manual focus if your eyesight is good. This is a very good lens to just step into macro photography. So when you put down those big dollars you will not have to waste time learning your limits and have more fun shooting.
  • Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Easy On The Pocket Book, Great Learner Lens, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh
  • Cons: Poor in Low Light, Slow Focus

Good lens for the price

  • Excerpt: Nice crisp photo's. As it should, it allows me to get very close to my subject. My test subject was very surprised at how much detail of her face it brought out. Looking forward to further exploration of its capabilities this summer.

This is so cool

Donald Eugene Leas, Amazon

  • Summary: First time I have used a macro lens and it is great. Taking pics of painted miniatures is so easy now. you need a table top tripod to make it steady or you will get blurry results. I am so used to regular lens, with distance markings of 10ft to 50ft and so forth, looking a the lens i noticed that the distances were 5.1 inch 5.2 in on up to 12 in. that is just to cool, gonna be playing with this for a while.

Nice close focusing macro lens and a great standard lens

Mr. Mark V. Stephan, Amazon
18 February 2014
  • Summary: I debated between this lens and the 35 f1.8. I decided to get the 30 f2.8 macro because it can be used as a normal lens with the field of view of a 45mm lens or it can be used to get close, only a few inches from your subject. The only negative is the lack of a lens hood. Sony doesn't make a lens hood for this lens so I ended up with a cheap ($4.50) metal wide angle lens hood from eBay which works very nicely.
