Pros: Tiny size, light wait, great AF, quiet, shaaaarp!... I am sooo much in love with it.
Cons:
Obvious... working distance

Well... the more I use it the more I am awed by its performance and usability. In my view this is the easiest lens for handholding macro photography. Being so small and light, macro photog has never seened to convenient. There are times when I dont want to carry a heavy lens or when the main purpose of my trip is not macro. In that case, I can just easily slip this lens in a corner and carry it for those surprise moments when you just suddenly encounter a beautiful insect or flower. Shaaaarp... can not say enough. AF is beautiful... even at the 1:1, I have always used AF with this lens. Previously 100mm macro of canon seemed to be a great option... but now i feel for me it is a good idea to have 60 for those days when I am not really thinking of macro and a sigma 150 for days when I want dedicated serious macro photography and am carrying a tripod, flash etc.
Love it Love it Love it!
