positive:New to macro but really loving the results from this recent purchase. Bokeh is gorgeous.
negative:None, though it wasn't cheap.
comment:Got this from Ian Hobday off eBay. Certainly not cheap but the lens is pretty much 'as new' so I'm more than happy with the purchase. I'm still learning to drive it but have suddenly found I really enjoy getting up close and personal with my subject. Real close and personal. A worthy addition to my kit bag.
