Pros: Excellent optics and mechanics

Cons: they do not produce it anymore

Opinion: Old chicken makes good stock ... it is not always true, but this lens perfectly respects the rule. It is a macro lens, but it is also valid for all photos for focusing on long distances. It is manual, so with the big current sensors it becomes very critical in the fire setting because on FF the minimum out of focus becomes immediately evident. However, used in macro, especially if with a tripod, this is not a problem, since there is plenty of time to correct the framing and fire. Personally I use it to duplicate my old slides with macro bellows and D800. On the 1: 1 ratio at full aperture highlights a bit 'of chromatic aberrations and loss of sharpness at the edges, closed at f8 is simply perfect on the whole field framed with a sharpness that goes far beyond the grain of the Kodachrome 25 professional. The result, compared to my Canon FS4000 US scanner is far better in all respects (this scanner goes really well on the negatives but charge un marked contrast on Fuji films (Velvia etc ...) and unfortunately the digital dust elimination system introduces digital errors on the Kodachrome). The only problem is that duplicating on bellow becomes evident every minimum grain of dust on the film or even on the opal glass of the door dia, so a maniacal care is required for cleaning. Having said that, it is a truly recommended approach to a macro enthusiast because on the basis of my experience, it is really difficult to think of a view that can go markedly better at short distances, where I mean better: the best performance is then really perceptible. To return to my experience with the 55 micro: once duplicated with the AF 60 micro f2.8 (great optics) but the results on Ektachrome Slide Duplicating have never been satisfactory (even because of the further passage on film); with the arrival of the FF on the digital and with the 55 micro f3.5 all this is forgotten, as mentioned the sharpness goes widemore than the resolution of the film, while the wide dynamic range of the D800 sensor in post production allows incredible recoveries on high and low lights, even beyond what was visible on the slide with an excellent lentino. Rated 10

Pros: the light is fantastic

Cons: used on camera without autofocus is hard to focus if the subject is not perfectly still.

Opinion: great lens, vintage, all manual as I like without the light of the best in you. great detail and decided blur but at the same time soft. in an unfavorable light situations it tend to sweat a little and is rarely suitable as everything to do if used on cameras without autofocus. lens that is affordable but not recommended if you are looking for something quick and practical.

Pros: High optical quality and construction, today is cheap ... it is beautiful?

Cons: No defects

Opinion: Lens quality. Solid. Excellent for use on 24x36 because the viewfinder bigger and brighter than on aps-c, where, however, has the advantage of being a moderate tele macro. According me.rnPer the 24x36 recommend it without a doubt, as is normal with something extra capacity macro (1: 2) format .rnrnSul reduced performance is still excellent, but is too short to be a tele macro and perhaps too long to be versatile, accordingly prefer a 60 afd or af-s by dell'af.rnrnA whatever format it is an excellent product, built to last.

Pros: incredible sharpness, solid

Cons: Manual only

Opinion: honestly I do not put in against the fact that it is a short throw and that requires you to get close to the subject, it is obvious given the focus, if you do not want to approach the subject you take a 105 ---> 180mm.rnNon see a downside the fact that is manual regarding the macro, to make the macro AF practically not used, if you must do street instead can be certainly a point in its sfavore.rnstiamo talking about a lens that is 40 years played and which obviously not even know what the result of the AF.rnonestamente canon aps is stunning. money well spent. my old Canon 100 macro is now retired! rnciaornrn
