I would recommend this lens

 

I use this lens for high magnification macro photography. The lens has the capability to achieve 5x magnification and is wholly dedicated to the macro photographer; it no other function. The quality of the output is superb. It takes a little getting...

The Best Macro Money Can Buy.

 

This Lens is a Macro lens end-off. You do need to actually sit down and think whether you can really find a use for this type of dedicated Lens - for me it took a long time to decide as I was put off by a lot of comments stating how dark items look...

Nothing out there to beat this lens

 

I\'m not aware of any other maker that is producing a macro lens that comes within phoning distance of matching this one. It is not an entry level piece of kit but if you are serious about macro photography, this is what you will end up buying. I...

Unique specialist lens

 

Unlike most macro lenses, which focus to infinity, this lens is macro only. It is really a 65mm lens with built in extension tubes, so the more you zoom in, the greater the magnification, up to 5x life size. This saves having to keep taking the lens...

Great lens

 

I\'ve been doing macro photography for a few months now and I\'ve just added this lens to use alongside my 100mm IS macro lens. I say alongside because the MP-E65 is not as easy to use as the 100mm for general macro photography. This lens has no...
