Pros: Everything is impossible but we are not very far away..., it remains the object of desire for me, fulfilled on 1/6/2012, wonderful lens even just as a design, to look and handle, robust lens, reliable, nitica, with wonderful colors and bokeh that made me love photography and introduced in to the mycocosmo of the "macro" sector. my absolute favorite lens. It is not perfect, as nothing is in photography (for obvious subjective reasons of each), but it is not easy to find him "against" of remarkable weight and substance, at least from my experience of use I could not think of other specialized objectives like him, in his focal or in the immediate vicinity (of any brand), and although I have seen many and great quality in the forum on thousands of photos (from 90 to 105mm), none of them in truth, while producing macro photos however splendid, especially from specialists and enthusiasts of sector, has actually never visually transmitted to me that sensory and liking feeling that instead give me the frames caught and proposed by this lens (as everyone in time I had some monkey that jumped in my head, sometimes satisfied, some other not, (of the rest you can, but never in any case revolted, even with a fleeting thought or such as to make me doubt or evaluate a possible replacement with another, of this lens to which ideally I believe, I would not give up "never"

Cons: Maf USM silent and precise but not lightning, manageable in any case without fear especially when the right selection of the distance scale is set through the dedicated button on the lens (macro distance, 0.50X or infinity) that affects precisely on the efficiency and speed of the range of maf in the range of operational distances between one selection step and the other, but taken a little confidence and did a bit of practice, everything is part of normality and efficiency of use. Some feedback of purple fringing to large openings in the situation of backlight and areas and contours caught in high contrast shots, effect however to maximum openings quite normal with bright lenses and not only macro, however correctable according to the cases, either in post or operational closing of one or two stops (but in the circumstance changing and obviously evaluating also the type of photo expected, quite different to F2,8 and F5,6...)

Opinion: Macro objective to which I am strongly attached and to which I can not fail to dedicate this homage and personal opinion. Lens that when you take it and try it maybe you do not change it anymore (I without "maybe)", of course if you tune in to her (but it does not take much even if the goals of the species need more depth and learning time to get the hoped-for results that then improve and refine further with time and experience). That said, I would not want to oust anyone and ask the merits of this magnificent lens whose references have been known and recognized for years, L-series, general quality, weight (for me optimal on Canon reflex bodies, both Aps-c, 60/70/80D and FF, 5D MarkIII, machine bodies on which I have used it for years always wearing a glove always finding an excellent ergonomics and overall balance), tropicalization, robustness, definition, detail, extraordinary and natural colors Canon, blurry, bokeh, remarkable detachment of the subject from the bottom with a nice sense of pdc and 3D in some contexts according to the subjects and with pdr studied well, that is in macros at close-ups but also in close-ups..., versatility (can give satisfaction, where used, also in portraiture, both to diaphragms more open and on average closed as well as can adapt to resume and show satisfactorily even glimpses of landscape or street), that is also in a low light. Lens that knows how to please you in the operation' as if it were a "tutor" that follows you and listens to you in your evolution, learning and deepening use over time even if it has always left me 'impression so far, that it could always have some additional margin to offer before bringing it to its limit, that is, depends on many factors, including also the machine body...). Learning and evolutionary steps in any case that I found sometimes challenging, especially at the beginning, in my photographic path made of passion and "do it yourself", but things have improved then steadily over time and this extraordinary goal, has given me great satisfaction. and photographic gratification. For him, moreover, the words, at least mine, are at the end marginal and count little or nothing, while they know how to talk about him much better the photos that tell him widely in the forum, the samples and "ep" present at the bottom and in the other following pages for example or the associated comments (just to get an idea and realize his potential and photographic level). To compend what to say on the other: 100 macros, for me monumental and absolutely recommended, without hesitation, that "overrun" every euro spent

Pros: Sharpness, blurred, stabilizer, construction

Cons: Hard to find them

Opinion: I have been using it for over 4 years with great satisfaction, first on canon 70D and now on sony 7R2. Very sharp lens, great for both macro and medium canvases. Excellent performance even with closed diaphragm, the refraction does not feel too much. Superb stabilizer. Soft and very pleasant blend. It is not compatible with canon extender, but I managed to use it without problems with the extender sigma 1.4x.

Pros: All

Cons: Nothing

Opinion: I must say that I am in love with this view. I use it improperly because we only take pictures of portraits, but its engraving, sharpness and versatility is unmatched. It is the most "senior" lens of my outfit, in the sense that I bought it and never resold it. The Straconsiglio, also to those who say and claims that it is not suitable for portraiture.

Pros: Bright, blurry open aperture beautiful, crisp

Cons: If I have to find one the weight, but that is still unpreseparable for a perspective of this type

Opinion: My first macro, mainly used to photograph my beloved bees, with extraordinary results. Very pleasant depth of field that allows you to isolate the subjects creating a suggestive background. Used mainly freehand, with quick enough shutter speed gives impeccable results. Absolutely recommended

Pros: Bright, not too heavy, stabilized, you can use it not only for Macro but also for portraiture! The combination with the 5d Mark III is great!

Cons: Lack of L-bracket, efficient lens hood, sometimes likes a bit cumbersome!

Opinion: Excellent lens, excellent micro-contrast, well-saturated colors, very fast AF, also suitable for portrait where, using very open diaphragms, manages to "detach" well the close-ups, pulling out an excellent boke. I use it with the Canon 5 D Mark III and used Freehand is fantastic (obviously merit of the excellent stabilizer!). I highly recommend it to those who want a great macro lens and, together, a very good portrait lens, of course not comparable to 85 1.4 or 1.2
