Q & As

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect for capturing the detail of a snowy winter! This is a quality product which has brought real clarity to close up pictures, especially of nature. Looking forward to exploring its capabilities further during the spring and summer! 04 February 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Excellent lens I use this with my 40D (cropped sensor) and have had excellent results. Sharpness and colour are exceptional. The macro function can be difficult and takes time to learn how to use effectively due to the shallow depth of field and exaggerated camera movement. A tripod and flash in manual setting helps enormously. A well made lens at a relatively reasonable price. 24 September 2014
