This is a very strange lens that will test your creativity as a photographer. Most people find it challenging to identify an interesting scene when it is right in front of them, at a familiar scale.

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 get even more macro action through your...

Canon ima v svoji bogati paleti kar nekaj zelo specifiènih objektivov. Torej objektivov, ki so namenjeni posebni uporabi in niso uporabniško primerni za vse vrste fotografije.

    Difficult To Learn To Use

16 October 2015

I have used my MP-E 65mm nearly every day, for the past 3.5 years. While I have shot up to 3.5 X power, even a 1X power, it's better than any other macro made. The glass is "L' quality.

You may have read that this lens is difficult to use. It is not. You must read about this lens before you buy it, however. It has only one purpose, the making of extreme close-up photomacrographs. You will not photograph the kids' birthday parties with this lens. This lens has no focusing mechanism.

For the fanatic that wants to peer into the almost microscopic world of extreme macro, this is the best. For almost everyone this is extreme overkill.

    Sharp, beautiful, extreme macro. Allows a vision into an invisible world.

    Difficult to use. Makes taking pictures a real skill. Must have dedicated ring light flash.
