Excerpt: Price was the main draw for this lens. It's features are on par with other aftermarket brands. Doing macro work from a tripod made using this lens a great buy, since it does not have vibration control. The quality is superb. The feel is solid and the sliding on/off auto focus control ring is easy to use without looking. I am very happy with this lens.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I've used this lens for 2 weeks, both as a macro for scientific photos and outdoors focused to infinity. This is my first off brand lens and I have to say that I love the manual focus clutch mechanism (and yes if you're using a Nikon, focus can be confirmed with the green dot in the viewfinder). As a way of judging my comments, I'm using this on a D800 and I have a habit of pixel peaking.
Excerpt: Nice and sharp. The only thing I do not like is its auto-focus is on the ring that you need pull out/in to change from auto to manual focus. Just like Tamron lens. also, in order to get focus on Nikon AF mount, you have to turn the F ring to smallest one f/32 on lens, otherwise Nikon camera would show mis-function (FEE). I do not think the manual has explanation for latter one. Except above, I think this lens is quick nice lens.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
Excerpt: This makes an excellent mixed purpose lens when paired with my d600. The portraits I take have extremely nice detail and sharpness and my macro shots do as well. The lack of image stabilization is the only thing you lose in comparison to equivalent macros of other brands that cost twice as much.
Excerpt: I have the Canon EF-S 60mm macro lens and use it on my 7D. I wanted a macro lens for my full frame cameras but I knew I would not use it a lot so I searched for a used lens. Even those prices were more than I wanted to pay for a lens that will sit unused a lot. I have rented Tokina lenses before and was always impressed by their no frills quality. So I researched this lens, liked what I read and ordered one.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Lightweight, Strong Construction
Excerpt: This lens really is a great value. I use the lens primarily for portraits and still life photos. It's quite sharp and has nice bokeh on my Canon 6d. The build quality is very good. The autofocus is a little slower than I'm used to at portrait distances, but in good light it's not horrible considering it does not have a USM focusing system. The focus ring is well damped, which helps make manual focusing at macro distances much easier.
Pros: Consistent Output, Great value, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
