- Excellent lens- June 30, 2019
I’m so glad that I decided to up the money for this lens. Definitely made an awesome improvement on the quality of photos I take of insects, spiders, lizards, and more. I’m still learning use the functionality of using the manual settings. I haven’t perfected it yet, but I’ve taken some awesome pictures with this lens. Was definitely a great investment!! I have no regrets about buying this lens.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
- Bad copy- August 15, 2012
Just received my copy from warehouse and sounds like a cheap plastic rattling when focusing. I tried the 40mm and is better than this one. I returned it for this one but I guess is going back to warehouse. Some reviews online are good may be I got a bad copy. If you want a pro lens save some money for the 105 micro or if you are shooting things like rings and jewelry go with the 40mm.No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
- Add this lens to your photo bag- June 5, 2021
Do not hesitate to buy this lens. It brings macro photography to you. I used a 55 years ago and had to get real close to what I was shooting. Took a lot of patience and time. With this lens you can keep a good distance from the subject and get a clear in focus shot every time. This lens works well in low light too. Buy!Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
- Good Value Macro Lens- June 9, 2015
Specialized lens for macro photography. I could have spent more and went with the 105mm lens but I have found this lens suitable for my needs and its much more compact than the bulky 105.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
