comment:Great lens, very easy to work with and beautifull results. Got a mint example for what I believe is a bargain price. Much more convenient in use than a non macro lens with tubes. I find the focusing works well, limiter and hold button are very handy. And manual focussing on the A77 is no problem! Absolutely recommended!
