      Canon's Best Macro Lens


      I spend most of my time as a photographer taking macro photographs of flowers and other small things in nature. I chose this lens over Canon's 50mm macro and 100mm macro for two reasons: (1) it is constructed with higher quality UD glass, so it has great color and contrast, and it's incredibly sharp at all f/stops, and (2) at 180mm, it allows you to stay farther away from your subjects and still focus to 1:1. This makes it easier take photographs without disturbing your subjects and it allows you to have a smaller, more blurry area in the background so that the background doesn't compete with the subject for attention. The lens also comes with a tripod color, which allows you conveniently change from vertical to horizontal, and it adds stability with your lens better balanced on your tripod. The lens has an ultrasonic motor, so it's fast and quiet when focusing, though I highly recommend setting the focus limiter 1.5m-infinity when not shooting macro photography. It will speed up the time it takes for the lens to focus. The only drawback I can find with the lens is that it is constructed with only an 8 blade aperture diaphram. Theoretically, with a higher number of blades, it would allow more natural blurs, but I can say I've never noticed a problem in my photographs.

      Great lense


      Bought this recently and took real close ups of flowers, my macro pictures came out really good. I am very happy with the results. Its heavy and hard to focus, need to have lot patience to use this. You can use it for regular shots but need to have lot of space in front of the object, and any slight movement will create big blur. You have to have tripod to use this. I bought this because I want to focus on macro photography. If you are not in to macro photography this is not for you. You can see more pictures at

      An amazing Macro but a bit slow to focus

      My beloved has been wanting to take macro pictures for some time. Having an excellent prime that is also a telephoto gives one much more flexibility while mastering all the other details entailed in macro photography. One is far less likely to spook that skittish dragonfly or illusive butterfly.
