Most helpful reviews

Colin, London

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Easy switching from Auto to Manual focusing. Decent distance from subject during macro shooting and smooth focus control. Pin sharp detail. There is an updated version of this lens available with IF in-built providing a much shorter lens length but at much higher cost.
Bad points:
No IF focus control means quite a long physical lens when used at min. distance.

Eric, Welwyn Garden City

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Great value, light, easy to use and to switch from auto to manual
Bad points:
Don't dislike it, but you have to be incredibly precise in focussing close up on insects, etc. Haven't used it much yet but would say a tripod is essential for macro.

Mark , Retford Nottinghamshire Outdoors person

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Great sharp images and for the price is exceptionally good value for money compared to buying in my case a manufactured Nikon macro lens. This is a full framed lens but works great on my Nikon d3200 which is a DX would reccomend buying
Bad points:
Auto focus motor slightly noisy but in manual for macro mode it doesn't matter!
The final outside lens is a long way inside the focusing tube which I don't really understand

David, Bridport

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Excellent for macro photography to 1:1 level. 90mm focal length gives good working distance. High quality images possible if camera and lens are stable i.e. on tripod. Very good value for money.
Bad points:
One reason it is cheap is that there is no optical stabilisation, so care has to be taken to keep very still in close-up shots. It is important to get model with a built-in motor, i.e. 272 IIEN, this works on cameras with no built-in motor in the camera body e.g. Nikon 5200

ANTHONY, Cottenham Retired DSLR user learning

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Good price. Simple to use. Does the job I want without breaking the bank.
Bad points:
Poor build quality; feels lightweight. Focus mode change-ring is easy to use - especially when you don't want to change it! Auto-focus motor is noisy and not very good compared with a Nikon lens at over twice the price.
