Great for close ups4 Posted by: from: on I take a lot of close ups of morel mushrooms and other fungi. It does what I need it to do. Nice bokeh for 2.8. Take a chance with this one, you will be pleasantly surprised.

Great closeup lens5 Posted by: from: Conway, SC on I'm new to "prime" lenses in the dslr world am not a professional by any stretch of the imagination. My wife originally bought me the 35mm lens for Christmas and then I exchanged it for the 50mm lens. However, I take more closeup shots of flowers etc. and the 50mm won't let you get in real close. After doing some more research and talking to the great folks at Best Buy, I decided this 40mm macro lens was for me. Great decision. I love it and would recommend it to a friend. My only complaint is that it's a f2.8 rather than an f1.8 but hey, one can't have it all. The price was excellent. My next lens will be the 85mm lens.

Great lens4 Posted by: from: on Great lens for the price. I shoot with it often. I would recommend getting a lower f-stop (1.4) if you prefer more of a bokeh background.

Nice, Affordable Macro Lens4 Posted by: from: on I love to photograph flowers up-close and this lens does not disappoint for capturing tack-sharp images. For work-related activities, it is very useful in photographing fine details (like text and symbols) I can use in professional documentation for other employees. In short, I'm very pleased with this lens.
