Field Test: Canon MP-E 65mm f/2.8 1-5x Macro

 

Maybe you've been playing around with macro photography, either with a dedicated 1:2 or 1:1 prime macro, or with a zoom lens that close focuses to about 1:3 magnification. Maybe you've even experimented with extension tubes or magnification filters to...

Great niche lens

 

This lens requires some skill, but it can get results that no other DSLR lens can. I have both this and the 100mm f2.8L macro. The 100mm is arguably a better lens for 'regular' macro, but this one can get incredible magnification. It opens up a whole...

Excellent Lens - But definitely not for greenhorn

 

By far the most difficult lens I've ever used. It does what it is supposed to do better than any other lens, but handling the lens is a real challenge. At this magnification level, 5x, even the slight breeze throws the object out of focus. Not only a...

very high magnification

extremely sensitive to slight vibrations

Not for the occassional experiment

 

I have this lens along with the ring flash and thought it would be great fun when I first purchased it. It is very difficult to operate because the depth of field is about 1mm when at 5x. You definitely need a tripod, flash and ideally a remote trigger...

Superior build quality, Super-sharp images

must have ring flash, must have tripod, must have remote

A must have lens

 

This is the ultimate macro lens when used correctly. The more you work with it the better it gets. Best when you used with strobes. This lens is a lot easier to use if you go to live view. This allows you to use the rear screen to focus in normal light...

best using live view

Interesting piece of equipment

 

I have used this lens several times through CPS loans and it is the only lens that I have found that does what it does, but boy is it a challenge. field of view and depth of field are so narrow that I have no idea how one would get a photo of anything...

Superior build quality, Super-sharp images, only lens that does what it does

difficult to find subject in viewfinder

Macro On A Whole New Level

 

I first owned an MP-E about a year ago from this writing and eventually ended up selling it for a 180mm L macro. Now I've managed to get my hands back on this great lens and paired with the right lighting equipment, it is phenomenal for any bug from...

solid build, nice weight, great image quality, the only one that does what it does
