    Playing around with the 70-180mm.

  2. Fantastic lens, isn't it? I have been in love with mine ever since I bought it several months (gee, I guess nearly a year) ago. This is one they'd have to wrestle from my cold, dead hands.....

    Same here Connie. I sold my 200 micro and kept this one. The zoom capability is so convenient.
  4. The zoom capability really adds flexibility that isn't available in other dedicated macro lenses. I like being able to handhold this lens in some macro situations (although the 105mm VR is sometimes better for that now). As you undoubtedly are aware, there's quite the 70-180mm fan club here at the Cafe!

    I really like it for product and table top stuff. The zoom capablility really shines there. With this lens I can back off on the zoom a bit to create more DOF at a given aperture and then crop later in Photoshop if I want a bigger image.

    I always lusted after the 200... but quickly sold it after comparing it to this lens. The 200 is awesome though. :biggrin:

    More than just product shots, a great nature/backpacking lens. Use as field telephoto is superb.
