Geoff, S. Devon Amateur macro photographer

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Sturdy construction and well balanced in use. Takes a good image.
Bad points:
Heavy and not really suitable for handholding at low shutterspeeds but works fine on a tripod. Autofocus is a bit slow and soft but manual focus is good.

Kevin, Aberystwyth

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
The quality of the pictures are good. The focusing can be overiden by using the manual ring without moving any switches. The lens is heavy but not as heavy as other l series lenses.have used it without a tripod on moving insects and have had good results.
Bad points:

Heavy for prolonged use but normally used on a tripod
The price is hefty but the lens is good quality but still a little salty

Andraz, Slovenia

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Superb build quality and very good optical performance although resolution isn`t up to par with the best L lenses. A big plus are the internal focus, meaning the lens stays the same lenght as you focus and the front doen`t rotate so you can use filters. Due to a very long focal distance of 180mm the working distance is quite far so this lens is great for shooting live insects that are easily scared.
Bad points:
Resolution could be better for a L series lens, also the auto focus can be very slow in difficult conditions, but as manual focus is normaly used for macro photography this isn`t a big issue.
