Pros: Great clarity and magnification. Great build quality
Cons: Heavy, manual focus
I have had this lens now for over 2 years and use it almost exclusively for my Macro work.I find it incredibly sharp and works very well with a focus rail. The attached Panoramic Stacked image of a Damsel Fly is * 2X magnification, 266 images in 7 panels. CAnon 5DmkIV with the MP-E, using a Wemacro focus rail at 230um travel 1/6sec f/5.6 (this i find is the sweet spot) ISO800

One day I saw pictures taken with this lens and I was stunned. Saved up some money and bought a non-new lens on Ebay. I didn't have a Canon camera, so I approached some friends to check its quality. When I took a few pictures, I was upset because it had a very small grip ... I announced it for sale ... But one day a photographer friend of mine showed me a video on how to shoot with this lens ... I didn't know before about stacking. But ended up buying some good macro rails ... Installed the stacking software and started getting ...

Однажды я увидел снимки, сделанные этим объективом, и был просто ошеломлен. Накопил денег и купил на Эбей не новый объектив. У меня не было камеры Canon, поэтому я обратился к друзьям, чтобы проверить ее качество. Когда я сделал несколько снимков, я был расстроен, потому что у него очень маленький захват ... Я объявил о его продаже ... Но однажды мой друг, фотограф показал мне видео, как снимать с этим объективом ... Я не знал Раньше не знал о стекинге. Но в итоге купил хорошие рельсы для макросъемки ... Установил программу для склейки стопки и начал получать ...

Pros: Variable magnification
With the right adapter very versatile
Cons: Its manual😀
I use this lens on Olympus with the Metabones adapter. This booster gives ‘extra light’ en some extra magnification. I have mostly the following setup. Studex tripod, ArcaSwiss cross bars, RRS macro rails, Olympus M1III, MP-E65, for this picture I used the Twinlite too. This picture is the smallest living animal I ever photographed. It is a baby springtail, I think halfe a mm in length and I had to use a second glasses to discover it.
