Good points:
Fantastic macro lens ... far better than I was expecting to be honest. Good sharpness corner to corner, good colour saturation and nice background blur.
Bad points:
I can't think of any ...

Thomas, Cockermouth Experienced photographer

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
A great, all day, walk around lens too.
Bad points:
None really, though because of the focal length of the lens you , naturally, have to go in quite close to some subjects, which can of course sppok them!

Tom, Cockermouth Experienced photographer

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
An excellent lens for both macro and as a "walk around" lens which has a focal length close to that of a "normal" lens on a DSLR.
Bad points:
Auto focus is a bit on the slow side, especially when moving from a close up subject to one at a greater distance from the camera.

Having such a short focal length (30mm) means that some subjects, such as insects, may be disturbed by the proximity of the lens, as well as the photographer of course, to them.
