Review of the Canon MP-E65mm 1-5x f2.8 Macro Lens has begun

Yesterday I received a Canon MP-E65mm 1-5x Macro lens for review. This is an unusual lens, in that it focuses from 1x magnification to 5x magnification to a full frame sensor.

This is a manual focus lens that does not focus to infinity. It is exclusively for macro.

To start the testing process I grabbed some samples from our rock and crystal collection and started shooting. The results are in the gallery below. You’ll see more of these as testing continues and then read the full review once I am finished.
