Pros: Sharpness, RR 1X, very high image quality even with extenders, robustness, very accurate construction and also relatively light, the AF is not lightning, absolutely, but for a macro it is more than excellent, very good the resistance to the backlight, excellent resistance to weathering despite the absence of tropicalization, splendid and characteristic finally the blurry "swirly" that reproduces.

Cons: Basically none since the only limits I can find him, the non-circular diaphragm and the absence of the stabilizer, had not yet been introduced in 1996.

Opinion: Excellent goal. The sharpness is very high already at TA and further improves between f 4 and f 5.6 where it reaches the peak of quality; in practice I do not find its sharpness higher than that of the macro 100/2.8 L IS, but given the almost double focal point if from this point of view one of the two has a limit this, of course, can certainly not be the 180! It is undoubtedly less practical in field use than in the 100, partly because of its much larger weight and size, partly because of the lack of the stabilizer, but freehand use, which is the only one I have practised, is sufficiently comfortable and nevertheless ensures excellent results. Finally, the almost TOTAL control of the background is not possible, which thanks to its reduced angle of field, and the remarkable perspective compression, it is able to ensure... from an exquisitely creative point of view, in short, it is many times ahead of a shorter focal point, even if it were the 100 L.

Pros: Robustness, sharpness, contrast, compatibility with Canon Extender.

Cons: Price, considering the year of production.

Opinion: Taken new a few years to replace a SIGMA 180 f 3.5, the transition was due to one of my whim to have "original Canon L series" Optics. Build quality and robustness are the first thing you notice in taking it in your hand. The yield in terms of quality is very good, (it was no less even the Sigma actually according to me, as well as the Tamron, you know that the macros are all very good), has a fantastic blurred and a really exceptional color rendition. The yield in my opinion is good already at full aperture but it gains further closing, since the greater use in macro is done at closed diaphragms. Although not tropicalized, it is almost as if it were, no problem in the mornings at dawn in the middle of the dew or under the drizzle. It is not a feather, but the tonnage and the materials of the body impose it. Another positive note (this is also the reason why the change from Sigma) the compatibility with the original Canon duplicators, with 2x III maintains a very good quality allowing a greater magnification or greater distance from the most Can Dodge. It ' an outdated optics and perhaps a new version with IS would not spoil for some use more generic freehand even if its use is done almost exclusively on tripod. Only negative, in my opinion, the price considering that it is in production D over 20 years!

Pros: Build quality, autofocus speed, fluidity manual focus ring, brightness, sharpness, tactile feeling.

Cons: Pesantino if carried around all day.

Opinion: Premise. I come from a Canon T90 with kit FD: With the digital jump I took the machine and lenses that I more return the sensations of analogue. I chose the 5d Classic with the 180 macro both used: they form a perfectly balanced pair; The goal, all IN black metal, is beautiful to see and above all an absolute pleasure to challenge and has a convenient ring for manual focus (IN This the helicoid of the FD was unbeatable). The autofocus is fast, even with very little light, as long as it is limited by the special switch: it is comparable to the speed of the 200 f 2.8. I work 99.9% ad f 3.5 together with the 20 mm f2.8 for my outputs: coupled to the right machine is a lens to have for those who love to enjoy the pleasure of taking pictures.

Pros: image quality, quality construction, working distance and yield of the background, compatible with teleconverters

Cons: high price (there are excellent alternatives at a lower price)

Opinion: The Canon 180 Macro has been for many years my main macro; from the image quality point of view it is really great: between f / 5.6 and f / 11, the diaphragms that are used more often in macro photography, is really crystal clear. From f / 16 then you lose some detail because of diffraction, and the whole opening is a little less sharp and contrasted, but Aperture that interest me is perfect. Like all macros, it has a slow autofocus, but this is not a problem since you'll almost always used in manual focus. The build quality is excellent; It is not weather sealed but that I have never caused problems, even using it in very humid environments. The long focal allows you to have a great working distance and good bokeh; if necessary, you can mount teleconverters for even more magnification and working distance. In my opinion the main flaw of this is the price toohigher than the competition: spending half you can buy the excellent Tamron 180mm f / 3.5 Macro, that I currently use, and really has nothing to envy to Canon in terms of image quality.

Pros: Sharpness, background blur, building and working distance in macro

Cons: Focus very slow, also would be nice had the stabilizer L 100mm Macro

Opinion: is an optical, clear beautiful, very specialized for the macro and unlike a 150mm or 100mm is almost indispensable the use of the stand for the ratio 1: 1 even if the hand-free tests with moving subjects have given excellent results anyway! rnrnPersonalmente I'd like it even more if it had a system a little faster focus would be phenomenal perspective and more versatile, but then we are talking of a macro is known that searching in a wide range of focus areas to be more fouco lens. I feel the lack of a stabilizer such as 100mm L because it also would be used in other contesti.rnrn is a macro product as it is 96 because it is done well and the number one for macro photography. The working distance is outstanding.
