positive:Sharp, Fast, great color. Quiet motor.
negative:The focus ring seems to have a little play in it.
comment:This is a very pleasant lens to use. It's a great focal length for not only macro work but for general photography when you need about a 90 mm lens. But it is really nice in macro use. The internal focusing is great as you don't have to get 'on top' of your subject at 1:1. I'm overall very pleased with it.
