reviewswhat are people saying

"I've used it for Portraits and for Macro and it did a beautiful job in both areas. Nice rich colors on my 5D & 7D. This lens made me fall in love with my 7D because I was disappointed with the 7D performance. Shooting macro with the 7D and Tokina 100mm macro was as easy as turning on the camera. I love this lens."

"This is an excellent lens with nice quality finish, quick AF and very nice levels of motor noise - the limit switch it very handy to keep AF at a minimum. Images so far have been extremely sharp and free of Chromatic Aberation. Weighting of the lens on the camera gives a nice solid feel, movements are smooth and precise. Using as a portrait lens the AF is incredibly quick considering the focus is not all internal. Price point is also very nice as images compare (and exceed) those taken with pricier units."

"It does not like to focus. I will sit there pushing the button in and it will take it forever. I really hope I can exchange this lens. I am not happy at all with it."

I'm looking for this lens. The only show stopper is that it doesn't have any Image Stabilisation. Should I really care for macro photography ?
