Was a bit sceptical about using this for my close up dental photography as clearly a dedicated macro lens will have better quality. Having taken well over 100 photographs with my set up and seen the results on a 40 inch HD screen, I have to say the resulting quality is superb. Everyone who has seen them has been blown away by the picture resolution. One thing I would say is that you must choos a high `f` number for aperture to get decent depth of field. f22 works well. saved hundreds of pounds here and would highly recommend.
