Pros: Definition, focal length, solidity

Cons: Unsealed, coating that retains marks and stains with ease

Opinion: Macro specific lens, with a 99% manual use and diframed up and over F16. It holds the flare well and has a good lens hood. My version is completely controlled by the engine of the machine, both the diaphragm and the fire. It has no stabilization but I would not put it between the desired being born to stand on tripod, remote shutter, raised mirror and low ISO. The AF is slow but not important in this lens. The lining could be done better. Wrinkled, it retains many impurities and is easily stained with rain. As far as I know, the lens is not sealed, a feature that would have made it go up again in positive reviews. Used a deal, new much less, after 150 you get to 180 and 200 except the 3.5 have really high prices. Excellent purchase, highly recommended.

Pros: price, sharpness, versatility, focal length, f good

Cons: coating a bit sensitive

Opinion: really a fantastic optical quality for the price. was the best choice for an optical dedidata the macro economy. Fairly light (lighter than the new stabilized version) extremely sharp. Compared with other options for approaching the macro that is the Canon 100 2.8 is really best given the presence of a tripod ring, a series of lens hood and 50mm in more that become crucial if photographing dragonflies and butterflies. To be an optical af the macro is very good (on 5D mkII) and thanks to the limiter you can have a perfect shot very quickly. softness in 2.8 makes it suitable for some portrait as long as you are at a suitable distance. only flaw the coating, is always row and stains remain in contact with dew

Pros: excellent quality / price ratio, sharp and bright

Cons: not resistant outer coating

Opinion: I bought this light four years ago and gave me a lot of satisfaction! excellent sharpness, and excellent color rendering blurry! as written by other users the lack of stabilization is not a problem for me as photographer always with a sturdy tripod and a micrometer head ... in my opinion an excellent goal! I would recommend it without a trace of doubt! all my macro photos of flowers and I made with this lens ...

Pros: sharpness, optical performance, risolvenza, excellent quality / price ratio

Cons: no ...

Opinion: Using this lens mainly for macro, so that it has a slow af (which mark the proper range is not) and has no stabilization is not a big problem. Taking my macro always on a tripod and remote shutter release, and gave me some satisfaction unparalleled. The focal length is perfect for aps-c bodies and for the kind of love that macro shooting, the subject crisp and beautiful wallpapers sfocatissimi! : D

Pros: Excellent color rendering, excellent focus, excellent sharpness, compact, lightweight, bright. Unparalleled value /prezzo.rn

Cons: The outer covering is excellent and with the wear is easier than you scrosti. But just treat him well. :-)

Opinion: Using this lens for about two years, and are stra happy! It has an excellent resolving power, great sharpness, and excellent color rendering. It is compact and lightweight and also the free hand is tolerated well, and this comes from someone who spends hours photographing insects in flight under the blazing sun. Also it is very blurry. L 'af is quick to quite accurate even if the af Canon is certainly superior. The absence of stabilization, I never weighed, because in 90 percent of cases the use on the stand, and when you use a free hand to the insects in flight, in those hours the light is so much to have a nice safety margin freehand, do not forget that it is a 2.8, and in any case the stabilization compensate only the movement of my hand not certain of lightning movements of bees in flight! OS not for ever !! Even the focal 150mm from the right compromise between blurry, compactness and price (compared to 180mm). Precisely for these three elements is perhaps the best lens in this macro commercio.rn
