At last, I have been able to purchase this 100mm f2.8 Macro lens and I am NOT disappointed. Having debated between this and the 50mm I am sure I made the right choice.
I just need more time to use it now!
A beautiful, (heavy) quality lens that captures really clear, sharp photo's. Great for portraits and the close up flowers and insects that I bought it for.
I am convinced it will be a very useful addition to my kit.
If you have been considering buying one - don't hesitate!
