Pros: Lightweight and optically valid

Cons: Focus

Opinion: Adorable lens for yield, with great colors and details. Sincerely in addition to macro use I find it excellent in portraiture, with well reproduced details and pleasant blurry. The focus is noisy though most of the time quite precise. The AF/MF selection mechanism is rather cumbersome. Taken for 199th, I find it really enjoyable, tried on both Canon body and Sony (A7II and A7III), with excellent performance. Ultimately, it is an objective that I advise unreservedly.

Pros: Good sharpness, soft colors with very pleasant shades. Great blurred, not dry, which makes the lens a good choice for portraiture.

Cons: Autofocus ridiculous, a bit cumbersome to use.

Opinion: Taken at a price almost by chance, he behaves very well on the D610, through good sharpness already ta, with a gradual and soft blurry. A apertures delivers sharp, crisp images, very detailed, with a yield old school that I personally love. The main objective flaw is the af module, ridicously speed and docking capabilities make the lens of the whole or almost unusable with insects or with moving subjects. Of course, a macro must be used in the stand, but having to return the lens to the fire must always act on the selector manual focus a little break ... rnRicapitolando, excellent image quality, very pastellosi color rendering old school, unusable or af almost if not cursing hard. Recommended? Neither, if you can use it on a tripod 80% of the time yes, but if you go around looking for prey vagile ... no!

Pros: Cost of used. Light. Good sharpness. Reproduction ratio 1: 1.

Cons: Selector AF - MF not particularly happy.

Opinion: Purchased (used / as new) from NOC to the figure of 230.00 Euro. After a few "housewives" tests, it proved to be a valid macro lens: excellent sharpness from f 4.0 upwards, solid enough, versatile. It has a good return of details and colors. Summing up a good goal to approach the macro photography without spending capital. Really recommended.

Pros: much sharpness - low price - weight

Cons: autofocus slow, inaccurate and noisy - construction fair - chromatic aberrations

Opinion: I had borrowed to make still life for a few days and I appreciate the quality optics that can produce optimal results. In the still life autofocus it can not be used and the manual focus is easy even without live view. If the af need, they leave the first curses, because it is slow, inaccurate and noisy. The quality of materials is discreet and does not give the feeling of long-lasting, good lens hood. The weight is low. Some aberration cromatica.rnIl price of used (since it came out production) is one of the lowest for a macro to full frame and with less than two hundred Euros, you can take home a lens with which to get professional photos, but if you are looking for something better, with little in the more you buy the Canon 100 2.8 macro.

Pros: Lightweight, good hood, my version crisp and clear f2.8, really good when you close the diaphragm already f4, for views to close at f14 has a definition crazy. Standard with the bag, 5 mm more help, not just good .. the price of a used is around 330 Euros, if kept well.

Cons: System focus improved, that does not snap cap with lens hood attached.

Opinion: Veramento satisfied. I also tried the version II stabilized, but that makes it slightly less at f2.8 though, when it comes to macro almost all the goals are well behaved. The focus is in good taste, even the colors, I never missed stabilizer perhaps because it is light, I used it on all fields: portrait, landscape and macro fact, has always given me satisfaction, I think to start and continue with the macro, is exceptional if taken used, (new cost about 600 €) the new version stabilizzta convinced me less (in fact cheaper than the new). It has a dual mechanism for the choice of putting the fire from manual to automatic that I did not understand why it exists. System with button multiple pump system. This is the only oddity, but it does not bother. You can do everything, I have to say that is much better than some more recent goals, recommended assolutamente.rnP.S.Montato of aps-c is almost a 170 mm macro, from provare..rnrnSaluti
