Product Review (submitted on 29 February 2012):
This macro lens fantastic offering a 5 times magnification, but this lens is hard work. There is no focus ring on this lens, you focus the lens by moving the camera closer or further away from the subject. The other thing is this lens eats light, you need a huge amount of light to be able to use this lens. It requires massive amount of patience, slowly moving the lens back and forth until you get the focus you wanted. I have used macro rails with this lens but they created too much vibration and the shots ended up very soft. This lens will reward you, you can get a single grain of rice to fill the frame. But the effort required is more than you would expect. This lens is only for specialty macro photographers, I would not recommend this lens for a beginner. This is a lens that I use when I want something different and closer than normal, it is not a lens that I would use every day.
