Review Date: Feb 4, 2005 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: Very sharp, light lens.
Cons:
The autofocus system is obviously no match for Canon's USM lenses, I occasionally get pumping action. The focus distance can be limited to close or long ranges which obviously helps this.

A very sharp good lens for macro photography. I'm using it exclusively to photograph subjects with near 1:1 magnification so can't comment on shooting larger subjects, however I'm got some amazing insect photos from close subjects.

Attaching Canon macro flashes works by adding a 55mm UV filter and a 55mm to 58 mm step up ring. Screw both in, mark the top on the step up ring, put the ring on flash. Mark the spots where the attachment nubs touch the ring and file away from each spot on the ring until the flash sticks. Much cheaper than the Canon adapter and works just as well.
