I always loved taking macro shots, and this was the one I finally settled on buying. It was at a decent price, got many good reviews and was perfect for my EOS 60D. Images are so sharp (maybe too sharp sometimes) and the focusing ring is like butter. The reason this gets 4 stars and not 5 is because, after a while I got bored of it and barely use it now, unless there are some things that I really need to take macro shots of. I sometimes used it for general purpose, images were fantastic with the bokeh, but it's sole purpose should be macro photography. You can buy extension tubes for £10 and achieve macro shots and save a lot of money if you are not crazy about Macro!
