Pros: Nice rubber rings, easy to change AF/MF
Cons:
the first copy had to be sent back

I needed to send it back for repair as soon as I bought it for cracked rubber rings although it was bought new. They fixed it the next day and shipped within two days after I returned the lens.

AF/MF switch is similar to Tamron 90mm macro but when in AF, the rubber ring goes under the golden ring at the tip of the lens. This means you might get dust.

When switching between AF and MF, you may have to twist the focus ring slightly. Otherwise, you will feel a slight registance to it. When you get use to it, it is not a big deal but I wish it was as smooth as Tamron 90mm macro's.

I don't know why there is a meter/ft window while there is no f stop ranges printed. It was suppose to show you the DOF but without f stop info, it only tells you how far the subject is.
