I have it.
Good, cheap and sharp and goes to 1:1

Good for still life but doesn't have the reach for nature/insect macros
how much did u buy for sigma macro lens? if i buy this macro lens, shld i buy canon 50mm f1.8?

its a pretty slow (focusing) lens if ur buying the nikon mount version. other than that its a pretty good lens for the price and manual focuses rather well... i'd say the focus ring feels much better than the canon 50mm f/1.4, as it more 'loose' hence easier to turn.

Hi
Appreciate if anyone can show me the results for this lens. I use it for portraits only. Am confused and wish to find out what more can it perform.
:embrass:thanks

if you use it for portrait, might as well invest in a 50mm f1.8, about same price for nikon mount and double for canon, but you gain 2 full stop of light.

Not v sure if this would help as they are not portraits...
I have 2 pics in my portfolio that are taken with this lens on a D100 on manual focus
its the pics titled 'strings of melancholy' and 'limelight'

get the tokina 100mm. enough for macro insects and good for portraits. even slightly cheaper than 90mm tamron.
