Works fine and focuses very close

Randy C. Finch, Amazon

  • Summary: Works fine and focuses very close. Things I don't like: the AF/MF switch is on the lens rather than using the one on the camera; Images are not as sharp as I had hoped, but still good.

So it's good for the price

Daniel Heras Garcia, Amazon

  • Summary: This lens has cromatic aberrations wide open, the minimal focus require that you're too close to the subject, been so dificult to get close to insects and making shadows with de same lens. So it's good for the price, but its not so easy to handle.

works well

Pío A., Amazon

  • Summary: The lens works well but is a little bit noisy. I don't know if that is my camera (Sony A300k), but the pictures are a little bit yellow and I need to fix that with some software. Is hard to get good pictures of subjects small than 5mm, and even 10mm is a problem to get the right focus.

  • Summary: once I learned the right way to use a macro lens I got some pretty cool shots.. Dont bother using auto focus doing macro.. set the lens to manual and then focus out to infinity and then use move the camera back and forth from your subject to get your focus right..

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.
  • Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Easy On The Pocket Book, Great Learner Lens, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh
  • Cons: Poor in Low Light, Slow Focus

  • Excerpt: The sony 30mm f 2.8 is a good option for amateurs and semipros. For outdoors is a perfect option but also for indoors in a low light conditions because of the f 2.8. I would recommend this lens to a friend.
  • Pros: Lightweight
  • Cons: Blurry Focus
