|negative:||stiff focus though it can be repaired easily|
|comment:||highly recommended !!|
worth every penny, very sharp, and lovely colour.
the stiff focus issue is well known problem with this lens, however, if you have the skills, its easy to fix and bring it back to life.
when you try it first time, you would be surprised for the meaning of 1:1, no zoom lens would give you such a magnification and of course such amazing pictures.
I think its must have lens in your bag.
Now after using this lens for a while, I wish that I have bought it long time ago !!! its really a great piece of kit and its really highly recommended for anyone, must have lens !
