Pros: Ergonomics, sharpness even at TA, blurry, overall image quality

Cons: Slow AF

Opinion: I have been doing this for almost 8 years: I have used it for many years on various Canon machines and I continue to use it now on a Sony system with adapter. What surprises me is the incredible resolution of this lens on the 42Mpx sensor of the A7R II, as opposed to the DXO test. I did not find this feature on any other optics I've had. The bokeh is very soft and has nothing to envy to much more expensive optics. I find the ergonomics excellent, and the focus ring has a very large, knurled handle that allows extremely precise focus adjustments.

Pros: Price, sharpness, mafia ring

Cons: Af slow

Opinion: I have used a number of macro optics and I can say that this lens has an unimportant price ratio. Rn I've been using it for almost two years now. Two intense macro seasons on stand, used in many light conditions. Medium-to-high aperture sharpness, as well as any macro optics. What impressed me on this lens is the quality of the mafia ring, big and well frustrated ..... for a quick and accurate maf. It is a specific optic and is not recommended for other areas by the AF engine Definitely slow.rn As far as I'm concerned, two years of great satisfactions ... a purchase that I re-opened my eyes.rnrn

Pros: sharpness, value for money, working distance, separation from the background

Cons: af slow, not weather sealed

Opinion: I use it for about a year (before I had the Canon 180 Macro L) and I'm very satisfied ... the image quality has nothing to envy to the Canon; f / 5.6 on it is crystal clear, and the most used in the macro diaphragms (f / 8, f / 11) is perfect. The long focal length allows you to have a great working distance and good bokeh; despite being a 180mm it is fairly light and compact (compared to the equivalent of other brands). Other advantages of this objective are the tripod ring, which allows you to quickly switch from horizontal to vertical shots, and the possibility of having the aperture ring: the Nikon version is equipped as the dial to adjust 'manually' the diaphragm, this feature it is very important for those who use it with adapters because it allows to use adapters of electronic lacking and without compatibility problems. I use it on Sony (version Nikon + adapter) and it works perfectly, while the Canon (which required a class tatore more sophisticated) had frequent problems. The only 'defects' I can mention are the lack of weather sealing and slow AF, but in macro photography is not important, since it always works in manual focus. In my opinion it is currently the best macro lens you can buy, if you take into account del'ottimo quality / price ratio!
