This is so good a product I asked for it as a gift! Previously had one, motor gave out after 3 years, prices through Abes are so great it was cheaper to buy new! I am thrilled with having this macro once again in my camera bag.

This lens has been great. I tested the similarly spec'd Canon lens for a couple weeks before purchasing this one. This one is more affordable and is definitely comparable in quality. I wholeheartedly recommend this lens.
