ownership:I own this lens
compared to:My first macro lens so for macro's
price paid:€ 125
positive:Very good and cheap macro lens for not only macro's but also for landscapes or even portraits.
negative:For this price nothing negative. 30 mm is a bit to wide for a macro lens so you need to be very close to the subject. For flowers will be not a huge problem but for insects it's nice to have a 50 mm of larger lens.
comment:Love this lens, the colors are great, sharpness is great and 30 mm is also nice prime lens to take with you because it's almost the proportion you see with your own eyes.
I would say if you have a Sony APS-C camera buy it.
