  • Canon 180 macro

  • December 12, 2013
  • By: Michael

I have two favourite Canon lenses and this is one (the Canon 300 f2.8 L is the other!) For any macro portrait of wildflowers, insects, reptiles, etc., this is THE lens. It is an extremely sharp lens whose longer focal length allows you to work at a comfortable distance from any smaller subject without sending it flying or running away. The narrow field of view allows you to selectively choose backgrounds to enhance any image. And the lens's magnification allows it to be used as a smaller telephoto with fine results too. The lens lacks image stabilization but this has never been a problem for me. I often use a tripod for planned photos but for a quick grab shot I have used rocks, branches, and other nearby objects to help stabilize the camera. For anyone who wants to delve into macro photography, you will not find a finer lens.

I bought this on reading reviews and a recommendation from a macro photographer. It is a VERY sharp lens. Much better than my old 100 mm. Although not IS, it is handholdable with sufficient shutter speed. A bit of hunting in lower light situations. The bokeh is soft and dreamy, and when you "shoot through" to your subject it gives a beautiful watercolour wash effect. Regrets?.....not buying it sooner! Henry's delivery was fast and well packaged.
