I love it, I find it very easy to use. Easy to switch between MF and AF and I am using a Quantaray 2x teleconverter with no problem.

Great lens, easy to use, reasonably priced producing an excellent end product. In the field it can sometimes take a second or two to get focus lock but the 'limit' switch helps a lot (or use manual focus). Takes knocks just as well as it takes pics. Recommended.

I love this lens. It is a true 1:1 macro lens that takes photographs that are comparable with models twice its price.
The AF is very fast, but I prefer to use the MF mode when doing my close-up work. The nice feature with this lens is that you can control AF/MF from either the camera or the lens itself.
This lens is very versatile and should please both professional and amatures alike with its ease of operation.
The only reason I did not give this lens a perfect rating is because it is not compatible with Sigmas 1.4 or 2x teleconvertors. In some instances I would like to be able to shoot my subjects from a longer range but don't want to carry or pay for a longer macro lens.
I would still however recommend this lens to anyone looking to get into macro photography or that is looking for a good fixed focal length portrait lens.
