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

Pros: Excellent sharpness as long as it closes a little, construction and lightness, is, it is also good for portraits, 67mm filters, does not extend to ratio 1:1

Cons: Missing bracket, sharpness to f2.8

Opinion: Lens had by chance, I had other macros and I always "snubled". I have changed my mind: it is a great lens in relation to certain considerations. It is very light, it is stabilized, it has a discrete AF (also on Sony with Sigma MC-11), it is very sharp at f 5.6 (and for very I mean that I solve the A7R2 to 1:1 reports without problems), and it makes great in the portraits being "soft" to f2.8. Basically in my opinion is a lens absolutely to have if you have only one macro lens, or however you have a "minimal" kit. The lack of bracket is not a problem, it weighs so little that you will not strain the bayonet. The construction is average, not granitic as a Sony GM, but not even plasticose like the Nikon G. At the figure of 500 \ \ 600 € I think it's an excellent purchase. Maybe I'll keep it, maybe I'll resell it, but not so much for him, as for my luck to have already a 60mm 2.8 with RR 2:1 and a Sigma 180mm 2.8 with RR 1:1. But if I were to keep only one of them, I would almost certainly choose this. The only alternative is the Tokina 100mm, but it has neither the "sex appeal" of a red ring, nor an AF so fast on both Canon and Sony. In conclusion If you are looking for a macro lens is a purchase to be done with eyes closed. With the necessary considerations on the versatility of this lens, I consider it a "must-have" for all the canonists. It could be superfluous exclusively for macro lovers, probably already possessing a 60mm and a 150\180mm, which would find in this focal a little useful addition.
