This telephoto macro lens provides life-size reproduction and it is optimized for digital cameras. The new multi-layer lens coating reduces flare and ghost, which is a common problem with digital cameras. Two SLD (special low dispersion) glass elements ensure high optical performance for film SLR cameras as well as digital SLR cameras. Taking pictures of small animals and insects can be difficult, because they often run or fly away, or can be dangerous or become aggressive if you approach them. Therefore it is advantageous to have a greater working distance between the camera and such subjects. Longer focal length lens can provide this greater distance, but most long lens do not focus close enough to provide a large image of small subjects. The tele-macro type lens solves this problem by producing a large, high quality image, up to life-size, while maintaining a long working distance. This can enable you to capture on film the world of photomicrography, without disturbing the subjects. The 180mm F3.5 EX DG MACRO lens has a very narrow field of view, and can allow very narrow depth-of-field for selective focus and less distracting backgrounds. This lens is most desirable for photographers who are serious about producing high quality images both of macro subjects at life-size reproduction, as well as normal telephotography.
'The optical performance is outstanding, producing pin-sharp, high-contrast images time and again.' -- Outdoor Photography - Christmas 2005
