reviewswhat are people saying

"This 100mm exceeded all my expectations. Its so sharp, has magical colour rendering and that much talked about 3-D rendering quality people talk about."

bhphotovideo.com

"The best lens I've ever used. It's optical performance is overwhelming - aberrations are extremely well corrected, extremely sharp across the frame at all apertures with no distortion whatsoever."

bhphotovideo.com

"The downside: annoyingly hard to put on and take off the lens cap when the shade is on, which is also a bit hard to handle. Lack of IS and manual focus make macro work difficult without a tripod. "
