Pros: Sharpness all over the frame at full aperture, faithful colour rendition, sturdiness of construction, magnification 1:1

Cons: Af Noisy and slow

Opinion: The best optical macro I tried (canon 100, 50 Canon 2.5 and Nikkor 55 3.5). The final rendering of the images is highly faithful to the colorors and real tones. I'm again looking for it (unfortunately sold for kit change) to use it as a general purpose optics. The only drawback, in the non-macro use, is the slow and noisy AF. I assume the new ART version keeps optical scheme equal.

Pros: Color rendition, sharpness, compactness, weight.

Cons: You have to get closer to subjects, backgrounds very large.

Opinion: I own this lens a couple of years, and I am extremely pleased. Looking at the market used you can rip at a good price, and for those who want to approach the macro can be a great starting point. Clearly, it is shorter than others, so to get pushed RR must be very close to the subject, in addition to the fact that obtaining uniform backgrounds is not always easy.
