Review Date: Jul 2, 2008 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $370.00 | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: Price was nice, Close up pictures come out looking great
Cons:
Takes some practice to get it right, doesn't take normal portrait or landscape pictures that well

I got this lens for my birthday in hopes to get some really nice in depth shots. I mostly do nature pictures and I really like to get into flowers for a large overwhelming shot making the viewer feel like the size of a bug. When I got this lens I found it to be a little difficult to adjust to.

It's a little difficult if you want to take a picture of a flat surface with his lens. It seems to have this horizon affect to it where the middle of the picture comes out sharp but the top and bottom look pretty blurry.

Otherwise, once you get the hang of it and start moving to actual flowers and reptiles, the pictures begin to look great. Here are some sample shots.

I would recommend this lens to anyone who is wanting to get into Macro photography. The lens isn't too expensive and the pictures come out looking pretty nice.
