    Sorry TS got to side track abit, I heard that this macro lens is no as fast as the other prime lens, in terms of focusing speed....wonder is it very significant?

    It does hunts a bit when you are doing macro but if you are doing portraits, there is a switch which you can turn to limit its focusing range, and the focusing would be very fast.

    I find that the macro lens speed is fast enough for a slow mole like me . I used it for both macros and portraits.

    funny how a lens is too sharp... Usually people complain that a lens is not sharp enough.
