positive:Sharpest blade that I owned.
negative:Erh.. price?
comment:This is a great lens! Besides using it for macro, I use it as a standard 100mm prime as well. Just remember to set the focus range switch to limit, else it zoom and extend the lens all the way out (at least more than half the lens length). :D

Did I mentioned? SHARP! SHARP! SHARP!
