Pros: Sharpness, focus distance, lightness, brightness, value for money.

Cons: Focus slow, difficult and a bit noisy, operating distance.

Opinion: A good lens for macrophotography, despite the absence of ED lenses. The sharpness is delicious, the brightness is good and the fuzzy soft. It allows you to focus already at 16 and broken cm, great value that turns into a defect when you are having to shoot (the focal point is 40 mm and the ratio 1:1) exactly inside the flower, but not close, right inside! The focus is accurate, really, however, having to shoot so close to the subject (obviously applies to macrophotography) at large aperture the lens requires the support of the tripod... The focus is slow, because first it tries to focus close then it starts probing toward infinity. I would recommend it as a first macro lens. It's worth exactly the price.

Pros: Lightweight, Sharpness, Defocused, Price

Cons: MAF sometimes slow and inaccurate, Construction slightly plastic

Opinion: Being a macro lens, it enjoys excellent sharpness. The maximum aperture and focal length make it a usable target beyond macros, portraits, street, and close-ups. In the right circumstances it can also be useful for still life. Blurry, although it is a macro, is quite soft and very pleasing. The lens, though DX, is very useful with FF format. Even without active "on cam" crop, vignetting is not excessive (in some cases it is almost completely absent) and can be corrected with a light PP crop.

Pros: very light, excellent sharpness, 1:1 macro

Cons: I don't find any, even the absence of stabilization not from any problem

Opinion: It is an optic that allows a use in every occasion, portraits, macros, travels, night photos. No problem, no uncertainty. I really appreciate the two selectable modes of focus: the first, M/A (autofocus with manual priority), allows a quick transition from autofocus to manual focus and vice versa, with the advantage of great versatility and maneuverability; the second M is the classic manual focus. I recommend it for the low price and for the excellent optical quality, as well as for the possibility of a wide use for many occasions. Excellent possibility of 1:1 macro with excellent yield in terms of sharpness and colors

Pros: so "sharp" that if you are not careful you cut

Cons: focus a little slow but precise

Opinion: really funny objective, practical and light, opens a new world. unfortunately, being a very short focal length, to obtain the 1: 1 ratio must be very close to the subject with the risk of doing away (if it is alive) or to darken it. is incredibly crisp already at 2.8 and by stopping becomes even sharper. when you reach the ratio of 1: 1, the diaphragm closes to 3.2 but it is not a bad thing since the depth of field in that opening is 1-2 millimeters.

Pros: Yield, weight, size

Cons: Slow Af, working distance, AC at TA

Opinion: It ' was my first macro bought initially with the idea of using it as everything do and alternative to zoom, is a lens that gave me beautiful shots; The optical output is almost perfect with obvious AC (like all G series) only in TA, warm colors and fuzzy soft with typical net detachment from macro and very contrasting colors, it also solves well the 24MPX APS-C; For macros in the outside it fatigues a lot, both for operating distance and in the use of Flash fired Trovvo close to the subject, also being a short focal island little background, rather it is a lens that I would recommend with eyes closed on this format more for still life shots and macro objects; For use as normal and all doing is a focal to limit on APS-C, also in the portrait tending to detach too much background from the areas in focus, however has a soft blurry and a passable bokeh; The AF is slow and the focus in manual is not simple, the lack of the stabilizer is not a problem because you can shoot at 1/60 Freehand; The build quality is not excellent but it is still solid and reliable, in general for what it costs the advice to those looking for a compact macro to use to generate still life and macro to small objects and still have a sort of all make light and compact to keep the n Bag, obviously can not replace NE the 35mm and the 50mm that boast a more interesting aperture and bokeh;
