Awesome manual focus macro lens

  • Excerpt: The 180mm focal length is perfect for small moving subjects because you're far enough away with this lens not to bother them. The image quality like most macro lenses is outstanding. The sharpness of the lens is impressive even wide open a f/3.5.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh
  • Cons: Poor in Low Light, Slow Focus
