Pros: Well built, not as robust as some other options but still well made, great colours, a fair price for good quality
Cons: On my old 30d focus was slow but thats more to do with my camera body, no image stabilisation - if you need it. Bit of weight but not too bad.
Using this lens with an older camera means I really have not seen the lens at his full potential but I thoroughly still enjoy using from time to time on my older setup. I started macro on this lens and would recommend it to anyone

Pros: Easy to use, a longer lenth - 100mm so easy to shoot insects thare are considered "more dangerous" such as wasps, bees or stinging insects; also it allows you to keep the distance so that you would not disturb your subject; the quality of the build is really good; the lens is a bit heavier than the one from Tamron, but still not too hard to handle while shooting. I am more than satisfied with this lens.
Better guarantee.
Cons: A bit more expensive than Sigma or Tamron; heavier than Tamron 90mm.
Excellent product!
