Pros: Construction, sharpness

Cons: non WR :-)

Opinion: Thanks to the forum I knew this fantastic goal. for years waiting for a macro fuji I was disappointed by the release of the xf80 (too big and too short of focal), so I decided to buy my first vintage lens, the kiron. I was immediately amazed by the weight and construction, it is really massive despite the compactness, all metal and glass. a pleasure to touch. and what about the photos that churns out, finally of the Macros with a capital M, great detail to any opening of diaphragm. the very simple and precise maf. The only defect is the lack of WR (of course), the presence of a few speck of dust is noted in some photos from f11 up.

Pros: Mechanical and optical construction

Cons: Lacks autofocus for on-the-fly photos

Opinion: I've had it for 5 years, for the Kiron I sold the excellent sigma 180/3.5 because it couldn't stand the comparison on sharpness. The latter is extreme at focal up to F13 then becomes normal ie good as other macros. Used on reflex canon is a pain because with the adapter without lens you lose infinity, while with mirroles (I have an R) it becomes all easier. I built the tripod ring, and I can't give up the comfort of it anymore. The focus with the dial is a unique enjoyment for accuracy; on the image enlarged to 10X you can see those details that other more expensive optics you dream of. Of course there are more emblazoned macro optics of which the photographers on duty fill their mouths, but the tests, in my opinion, are done on the livery of known butterflies, not on the "tulips". Used as an average canvas, from good results in the average of other average dated canvases. While used in the specific field... There's none for anyone. I thank Guz and Mgnax for recommending me well.

Pros: High sharpness even at full aperture, blurry excellent, high separation plans, high contrast, excellent color, very solid all-metal construction.

Cons: Hard to find, some little chromatic aberration.

Opinion: It is probably the best macro lens ever built, has a impressive sharpness. The focus ring is very long and eStream accurate. It allows you to focus on dissecting the plans as if you were under a microscope. The sharpness is high even at full aperture. The construction is solid, is built entirely of metal with glass lenses, probably if it fell, they cleave the floor.

Pros: Sharpness to sell! Blurred fabulous. Focus ring over very long.

Cons: Lack ring for treppiedern

Opinion: Since I'm using the Tamron 180 remained almost always in stock. When you pick it up you immediately notice the lug that is in him, made entirely of metal, solidissimo.rnQuando look through the viewfinder I see a new world that I see when I use the Tamron, starting from the background that I think is great. RNLA focus ring is very long and this allows precise focus on the lack soggetto.rnPurtroppo ring tripod greatly limits the compositional aspect not being able to rotate the body macchina.rnConcludendo I can only say that it is really a lens magnificent!
