I've had this lens a few days now and had the opportunity to do a few sessions with it and am very, very pleased with the results.

The lens feels solid and well built, heavy enough without being too much.

This lens has an EF-S mount so has been designed specifically with the Canon range of digital cameras in mind such as 300D, 350D and the new 400D which I currently have this lens hooked up to. The lens is not suitable for Canon's 1D and 5D but I'm guessing if you afford one of those you'll likely own the 180mm macro 'L' lens ;)

Auto focus is good and fast in good light and the lens length does not change during focusing. There is provision on the front to attach a ring flash for real close macro work too. There is a distance indicator scale on the lens barrel and also a full time manual focus ring. Excellent!

The results from the lens are simply stunning. Clarity is unbelievable from my 400D. Focal length equates to 96mm because of the 1.6x crop factor of the sensor allowing 1:1 size shots and boy do they show the detail!

The lens focuses as close as 9cm for the full 1:1 macro and whilst this is fine for inanimate objects it may be tricky to release the full potential of the lens if taking shots of wildlife such as small insects for example. This is where I think a remote control shutter release would be a godsend as you can set the camera up and step away to avoid disturbing your subject - that's next on my list!

I've not had the chance to use it as such yet but by all accounts the lens works very well as a portrait lens and I can see no reason to disbelieve what I've read on various forums. In fact it may even lose you a few friends as the lens is so sharp it shows up e-v-e-r-y detail!

I've the 60mm for some time now, and i've used along with my 400d for portrait and macro. Sometimes i use it as a walking around lens (along with the 30mm Sigma), because it's great to get that perfect shot with no defects (super sharp, no distortion, and great color).
To take portrait shots without tripod and extra light, I would go for this lens.
It's light (but it feels solid), fast, and it just feels right in this kind of camera body (400d).

I am amazed at the excellent results i get with this lens and the canon 60D. I had struggled for some time, with a low priced, second hand fixed lens Fuji, to produce decent close up photographs. Not Fuji's fault, it is a low price camera and you get what you pay for and I am very amateur, although I did a lot of reading of reviews before buying anything else. i decided to treat myself to a canon 60D with 18-135 zoom package and the additional 60mm macro. I am a very happy man, although it was a lot of money (for me)I think I have got real value for money.

I put the 60mm on and just walked around snapping. I tried the macro on some red carnations. In the house, no lights, no tripod and they turned out better than anything I have done before. Colour, crispness, shallow depth of field. It was very easy to get pictures I like.

My original justification was to take food photographs for my wife's cook book and i am now confident I can make a good job of it, having struggled to do an ok job with the Fuji. Now i have developed a passion for photographing flowers. The next challenge is to convince my wife I am buying her flowers to photograph and I'm not having an affair....

I bought this lens because it came highly recommended. It has stunning resolution. It feels good. Working close up you need the manual focus because it focuses on something perfectly, but not always the right something. To get the depth of field a tripod is a must to work with slow shutter speeds and ISO100. But I so love this lens. There are things I have worked with for 20 years and barely seen the holes. Now I see in intimate detail the dust on the inside of the holes! It deserves 6 stars!

This is a fantastic lens. I was originally looking at some other cheaper makes but so dam glad I parted with the extra money (which in truth was not that much more).

As the others write, the lens is Sharpe and very salient. A silly little thing which I really like is the fact you can have the autofocus setting on and still be able to manually help it a little without the usual horrible noise from the motor sounding like you're about to severely damage it. No idea if this is really allowed or not but seems not to damage it and allows me to get that required picture much faster.

In short, another happy owner of this lens. If you want to see some pics taken with it go to [...] where you can see some quick snaps of some fruit and the best is the matches. Notice the detail. The 60mm allows you to be at a good distance to take them.

Great lens!!

I bought this lens along with my eos 350D( it doesnt work with normal eos cameras as it is EF-S). The lens is very well made and as it is USM is silent and fast when focussing, which by the way is entirely internal( ie there is no change in length of the lens when focusing). The pictures are very, very sharp and the bokeh is brillant. Try it out and see- i can assure you that you wont be disappointed. It is also relatively small. As there is a 1.6 magnification in canon digital is actually works out to be 96 mm macro. This lens is really worth it- the only detractors are people who also use the normal eos full frame cameras. It is an excellent macro and potrait lens. This should have been a L lens.
