    Cons: Focus Clutch too stiff. No matter how much sense there is to shoot macro at 35mm (from 2 cm), macro works good.

    Pros: Perfect build quality, outstanding brightness, sharpness and color rendition.

    Summary: Perfect value for money, sharper than my Nikkor 50mm 1,8D.

    Cons: Ugly (but who cares), 35mm not the best for macro work

    Pros: Build, optics, price

    Summary: Superlative lens for the price, outstanding build quality, sharp, good colour rendition, better used for general purpose photography than macro work although you can get excellent results if you work at it (focal length too short for much macro photography)

    Cons: Infinity Focus at 5 feet. Focus Clutch takes a little getting used to. Focus can be slow if in "Full" mode--still very much acceptable.

    Pros: Super Sharp. Little to no CA or distortion. High build quality. Very unique macro perspective.

    Summary: This lens works best for near macro, as the focus distance at 1:1 is nearly touching the barrel! Because of the "normal" angle of view, I can do about 85% of my shooting with this lens.

    Cons: Heavy and a little bulky for a prime. After 8 months of use a screw came loose inside. The barrel is loose and the aperture is sticky. Currently in repair. I've heard nothing but good things, so I'm chocking this one up to bad luck. If it's dead, I'm buying another.

    Pros: Very sharp Unique wide macro perspective Solid construction (except for the screw issue)

    Summary: Possibly my favourite lens.

    Cons: Infinity at only 5 feet, Heavyweight for the size, closest focus almost inside the barrel and slightly expensive

    Pros: macro performance, very sharp overall even wide open, good low light performance, all metal construction, simple to use

    Summary: Go for it if you need macro performance at low price and also need to use as a normal lens. Other wise nikon or canon 35mms are slightly cheaper.
